Missouri: Anti-Abortion Group Launches TV Ad Against Obama

The Susan B. Anthony List, a group that advocates against abortion rights, announced this morning the launch of a television ad airing in Missouri that denounces President Barack Obama’s record on the issue.

The ad features a woman named Melissa Ohden, who tells a story of surviving an abortion.

“I know that it is by the grace of God I am alive today … if only to ask America this question: Is this the kind of leadership that will move us forward? Leadership that would discard the least and the weakest among us?” Ohden says to the camera.

The group has put $150,000 behind the ad, and it will “air in markets across Missouri.”


    The world fought a long hard world war against people who thought they had the right say who should exist and whom should not. More than six million persons were executed by that government before the world could halt the practice. Today, America executes about half that many babies every YEAR!!! There may be reason for a woman to abort a child because of rape, but with as many ways of birth control as exist today, there is no earthly reason for this terrible sacriledge against human life. Sexual activity is a pleaasant thing, but there is no reason to engage in it if you are not ready to take measures to ensure no life will come from it or will welcome the end result. Sexual activity is also a sacred thing. It is what ensures the existance of the human race! It’s high time that people began to accept responsibility for their actions. We are not animals with no way to understand the end results of our actions!!!
