During the presidential primaries, anti-abortion activist Randall Terry ran for president on the Democratic ticket, not because he harbored any hope of winning, but because his political candidacy would allow him to take advantage of FCC rules so that he could air graphic anti-abortion ads. Others have joined him for lesser political offices for the same purpose — to expose the public to gruesome anti-abortion advertising during prime time television.
In the latest blitz, ten pro-life candidates associated with Terry's ProLife Candidates Federal Campaign Committee will air graphic advertising from October 29 to November 6 in seven states: Florida, Virginia, Ohio, Iowa, Missouri, Colorado and Nevada. The ads, which Terry says "will graphically show victims of abortion and victims of Muslim aggression," will be shown during the morning, noon and evening news segments, football games and late night shows.
"No Christian – and no person of good will – can vote for Obama, knowing his slaughter of the unborn, and his assault on religious liberty," Terry declared in a press release announcing the ads. "Our goal is to bring down Obama using images of aborted babies."
One of the ads that will be running is titled, "Obama's Assault on Life and Liberty" (embedded below), narrated by Terry, who says:
President Obama has ordered all Christian institutions to pay for drugs that murder the unborn. This is an assault on life and liberty. Will we knuckle under, violate our consciences and become accomplices to Obama's immorality? If we vote for Obama, we empower him to attack the church and murder babies. Let's defend life and religious liberty and vote him out. I'm Randall Terry and I approve this message.
