WASHINGTON, April 5, 2011 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Faith Family Freedom Fund, a political action committee associated with Family Research Council Action, launched a radio ad campaign in eight congressional districts today calling on Republican Members of the U.S. House of Representatives to vote for H.R. 3, the "No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion Act."
This legislation would wipe the slate clean of government projects that force Americans to pay for abortions and abortion coverage.
The one week ad buy will run on both news/talk and Christian radio stations in the districts of GOP House Members. These U.S. Reps. include Judy Biggert (R-IL), Robert Dold (R-IL), Charlie Bass (R-NH), Charlie Dent (R-PA), Jim Gerlach (R-PA), Dean Heller (R-NV), Dave Reichert (R-WA), and Mary Bono Mack (R-CA).
"On Election Day, the American people made clear their opposition to using their hard earned dollars to pay for abortions and most especially during a time of such economic turmoil," said Faith Family Freedom Fund Chairwoman Connie Mackey. "Polling shows that Americans do not want federal dollars paying for abortion. We call on these House Members to support the bi-partisan Smith-Lipinski 'No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion Act.' This bill will ensure that American taxpayers are not complicit in a lethal assault on the most fundamental of all human rights – the right to life," concluded Mackey.
In the ad, a voice says:
"For 35 years, the Hyde Amendment has protected federal tax dollars from being used for abortion. Obamacare changed that. This is the voice of Congressman Hyde."
A recording of pro-life champion Congressman Henry Hyde then plays:
"I believe nothing in this world of wonders is more beautiful than the innocence of a child.
"That little, almost born infant struggling to live is a member of the human family, and abortion is a lethal assault against the very idea of human rights and destroys, along with a defenseless little baby, the moral foundation of our democracy.
"Our moment in history is marked by a mortal conflict between a culture of death and a culture of life, and today, here and now, we must choose sides."
The ad concludes:
"Support the 'No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion Act,'" and lists the name and number for that district's representative.
