Women in Colorado are unhappy that pro-abortion Colorado Sen. Mark Udall has released a campaign ad trashing pro-life Congressman Cory Gardner, who is challenging the abortion advocate in one of the hottest Senate races in the country.
Udall has already spent hundreds of thousands of dollars on false ads across the state claiming Gardner opposes contraception and birth control and now he is out with a new ad that promotes abortion and features a little girl.
But that is not going over well with women — regardless of where they stand on abortion.
“It makes the hair on the back of my neck stand up, and I don’t think it’s fair to that girl,” Betsy Mccain, a Gardner supporter, told CBS4.
The critics say it’s not about abortion, and not all the critics are pro-life.
“We should not utilize our children as a prop to express our feelings as adults,” Maria Del Carmen Guzman, who said she’s pro-choice, said.
“She did put herself out there in a national race with national implications in a pretty explicit ad,” Michelle Lyng, a Gardner supporter, said.
Gardner, a pro-life Congressman from Colorado, hopes to help pro-life advocates gain control of the Senate from Reid and to put it back in pro-life hands. Gardner is a longtime pro-life advocate who maintains a 100% pro-life voting record in the House.
Sarah Zagorski, Executive Director of Colorado Citizens for Life, told LifeNews:
Sen. Mark Udall has consistently shown the people of Colorado where he stands on abortion. From voting in favor of unlimited abortion funding for businesses like Planned Parenthood, to refusing to support parental consent laws for minors, Udall holds an extreme abortion-on-demand view and will not protect the women and children of Colorado. His new pro-abortion ad which features a little girl and her mother, shows the citizens of Colorado just how far he will go to promote his radical abortion agenda.
Congressman Cory Gardner has an 100% pro-life voting record and is dedicated to protecting the women and children of our great state. In the past, Congressman Gardner has voted for legislation that would ban painful late-term abortions, and he has voted against Obamacare and taxpayer funding of abortion businesses.
During his tenure, Gardner has voted 100% pro-life, casting pro-life votes 14 out of 14 times since he was elected to Congress. Gardner has voted to stop taxpayer funding of abortions, he’s repeatedly voted against Obamacare and funding or Obamacare, he’s voted for legislation to ban late-term abortions, he’s voted to de-fund the Planned Parenthood abortion business and to ban sex-selection abortions.
Unlike Harry Reid and his friends who control the Senate, Cory Gardner will give the pro-life movement another vote and the potential to actually pass legislation that will stop abortions and abortion funding. At a critical time when the rest of the pro-life movement is working in unison to win control of the Senate and stop abortion, Personhood USA should stop misleading pro-lifers about our pro-life candidates.
