New Ad Hits Romney on Abortion

A new TV ad that begins airing in Iowa and New Hampshire this weekend showcases Mitt Romneys’ past pro-choice views, further complicated his attempts to shore up conservative Christian support. Republican rivals Fred Thompson and Mike Huckabee have also stepped up their attempts to raise doubts about Romney’s commitment to the pro-life cause. The new ad comes courtesy of the group Republican Majority for ChoiceGod-o-Meter is curious to see how this new round of attacks on Romney affect his poll numbers in early primary and caucus states. One of the biggest questions on GOM’s mind these days centers on how firm Romney’s support is among the decent-sized chunk of Christian conservatives he’s managed to win over thus far.5

You had best be prepared to VOTE this year. It is an election that could set women back pre-Roe vs Wade. That means back alley abortions. Some of the people running for President want only Men and babies to have rights. The rights of women are on the back burner.
It is not as if we are telling women to have an abortion or else, we are asking for the right to make our own choice in this very private matter. We need to protect womens right to choose, and this MUST be prepared to make this a PRIMARY issue in this election. The Supreme Court of this country is being stacked against women on this issue and we must pay attention to that fact before it is too late. If you as an American woman are not outraged you are not paying attention.

Yes, Mary, I will be voting. And I will excercise my right to choose to limit my sexual partners and avoid pregnancy so that I never have to choose an abortion.
