Posted on 09/25/2012 2:04:40 PM PDT by NYer
The Planned Parenthood abortion business officially begins its ad campaign today attacking Mitt Romney — spending millions to attack the candidate supported by pro-life groups to take on pro-abortion President Barack Obama.
The Planned Parenthood Action Fund, the political arm of the company that does more than 300,000 abortions annually and has endorsed Obama, plans to spend more than $3 million to target voters in the battleground states of Ohio and Virginia with ads bashing Romney for wanting to cut its taxpayer funding. The $3.2 million campaign will feature everything from online ads to old-fashioned door to door politics.
The Virginia ads begin this week, while the Ohio commercials start next week.
The new ad, called “Cynthia’s Story,” features a woman who claims Planned Parenthood helped her survive a battle with cancer, even though Planned Parenthood’s abortions increase the risk of breast cancer and no Planned Parenthood abortion centers provide mammograms.
“I could feel a lump in my abdomen. I was very scared. Planned Parenthood saved my life with an early diagnosis of cancer,” the woman, Cynthia Wilson, says in the ad.
The ads also blast Romney’s comments saying he would “get rid of” taxpayer funding for the Planned Parenthood abortion business.
“When Mitt Romney says ‘Planned Parenthood, we’re going to get rid of that,’ he really doesn’t understand how many women depend on Planned Parenthood,” Wilson says. “We’re talking about real lives here. I believe Mitt Romney is out of touch. I think he just does not have any idea how many lives he’s devastating.”
Planned Parenthood itself has admitted that it does not perform mammograms for women something the Komen for the Cure breast cancer charity confirmed last year.
my tax dollars at waste.
Poor Mitt. The inventor of the $50 Romneycare abortion is being beaten up by Planned Parenthood.
Sucks to flip-flop, eh, Mitt?
These child murderers will convince few
Government unions and groups like Planned Parenthood, which received Federal funding should be banned from any type of political advertising.
As a matter of fact...that sounds like a nice bill that President Romney can sign in his first year.
“Sucks to flip-flop, eh, Mitt?”
Funny, I used to get that thrown at me about Reagan all the time. Deja Vu. Some things never change.
his lfielong love affair with abortion bites him back
Who use to throw that at you about Reagan? They could not have been well informed. ORomney, on the other hand, is famous for it.
If PP cares so much about women, then why aren’t they using this money to help women?
Oh, right, they don’t. They care about money. Gotta spend money to make money.
where do they get the money to do this?
and after he was a big name donator too...
“Babies died to produce this ad. And we at planned parenthood approve that message. “
Only when a woman has the “right” to kill nascent human life in her womb is she truly liberated. /s
Yes Regan admitted he used to be a democrat but once he switched parties his convictions did not change. I supported him for Gov. and he had the same positions when he ran for Pres. Romneys position on all most issues changed from the time he was Gov. In fact they have already changed from the time he was nominated.
At least now we know why they wanted taxpayer dollars.
This way they don’t have to donate any of their own money to a losing cause.
How about a law that institutions receiving taxpayer money can’t donate to candidates for office or take out ads during elections?
No you didn't.
“No you didn’t.”
Hahahaha. OK. I guess you would know best what I hear, Swami.
“Yes Regan admitted he used to be a democrat but once he switched parties his convictions did not change.”
That will; take a while to digest. You mean once he changed, he didn’t change, because he wasn’t the kind of guy who changed? Well, I guess if he wasn’t the kind of guy who could change, why believe anyone else will? Or did you just decide to be a contrarian to the bitter end? Is that a chnage for you?
Everyone here knows that you are lying when you try to compare the anti-Reagan Mitt to Reagan, the conservative hero.
