Randall Terry Exploits Law Requiring TV Stations to Run Political Ads to Show Graphic Abortion Images
Don’t vote for Barack Obama, he murders babies.
That is the message of Randall Terry’s (pro-life activist, founder of Operation Rescue) new political ad underscored by graphic images of aborted late and mid term fetuses while in the background a young girls voice calls out for her mommy.
*WARNING: Graphic Content/Blood/Body Parts*
The ad features Norma McCorvey who as “Jane Roe” won the right to legal abortion for women in the Supreme Court Roe v. Wade case (also see Doe v. Bolton) in 1973. McCorvey who became a Christian in 1995 says in the ad that she was pressured to lie by her “feminist” attorneys and that her entire case was nothing but a lie.
“I’m Norma McCorvey, the former Jane Roe of the Roe vs. Wade decision that brought ‘legal’ child killing to America.
I was persuaded by feminist attorneys to lie; to say that I was raped, and needed an abortion. It was all a lie.
Since then, over 50 million babies have been murdered. I will take this burden to my grave.
Please, don’t follow in my mistakes. Do not vote for Barack Obama. He murders babies.’
Normally TV stations turn down this type of ad due to the graphic content but because Terry is on the Presidential ticket in several states and on the House ticket in Florida running as a Democrat they can’t this time. The FCC rules dictate that all political candidates’ ads must be run in their entirety as long as they are paid for. The ads are now set to begin airing in Florida.
If I were a more suspicious and cynical person I would probably be wondering if perhaps the reason for Mr. Terry’s quixotic campaign was solely to get media attention, donations, and to force his gruesome ads into the living rooms of millions. Of course being the naive and trusting person that I am (*cough*bullshit*cough*) no such thoughts have ever entered my mind.
EDIT: I just want to clarify that whether or not McCorvey lied about her rape is meaningless legally. This is very old news and even though anti-abortion activists like to claim that it undermines the Roe v. Wade ruling it has no practical effect whatsoever.
