This is just awful and so full of lies that I’m almost stunned by it.
The gist of this is that little girls dreams will die unless you pay for their birth control.
I always get a chill of revulsion up my spine when I see an ad that touts abortion rights while playing soft music and showing slow motion video of children. Kinda’ freaks me out.
As Katie Pavlich of Townhall writes:
There are many problems with this ad.
The first: The use of contraception is not controversial, forcing others, including religious institutions morally opposed to contraception, to cover and pay for contraception, is.
The second: Contraception is readily available at an inexpensive price pretty much everywhere.
The third: Have we really gotten to the point in America where young girls can only fullfil their dreams if someone else pays for their birth control? No, not even close. In fact, Forbes just named their 100 most powerful celebrities in the world. Four out of the top five celebrities were women and seven out of the top ten were women. Taxpayers weren’t paying for their birth control through a govenment mandate along their way to the top.
The fourth: The woman narrating the ad says, “We need a president who will stand up for women’s health and stay focused on jobs and the economy.” Let me remind readers that it was President Obama who decided to make birth control a “controversial” issue and a distraction from his horrific economic record when his ally Nancy Pelosi tapped 30-year-old reproductive activist Sandra Fluke of Georgetown University to testify/complain before a congressional committee about paying $3000 a year for birth control.
