In a move that is outraging pro-choice groups, a Catholic group has made a television commercial that turns Barack Obama's life story into an anti-abortion ad.
The ads are sponsored by catholicvote.org. The ad begins by showing a small fetus in a mother's womb as the following words appear:
"This child's future is a broken home."
"He will be abandoned by his father."
"His single mother will struggle to raise him."
"Despite the hardships he will endure this child will become the 1st African-American President."
At the end of the television spot there is a photo of Barack Obama and these words: "Life: Imagine the Potential."
This is the first release of a national media campaign, and the executive director of catholicvote.org told PRNewswire that all the ads in the campaign will use that tag line. "Our message is simple: Abortion is the enemy of hope. The purpose of our new ad is to spread a message of hope about the potential of every human life."
The video of the television ad is below.....
