Pro-life tv ads target Casey

UPDATE, 3:45p: The Susan B. Anthony List has just hand-delivered a personal letter to Sen. Bob Casey's office from president Marjorie Dannenfelser.

casey and casey, abortion in healthcare.pngDannenfelser's letter is quite strong, worth the read. In it she invokes the memory of Casey's father and his pro-life convictions. Pro-aborts would likely say the letter hits below the belt - if they dared to mention it, which I think they won't. Dannenfelser closes by pledging to pull the ad when Casey commits, like Sen. Ben Nelson, to oppose public funding of abortion whatsoever in any healthcare bill. Excerpts...

I know you have the strength to join him in this uncompromising stand, just as your father would have if he was still with us today....

As the negotiations continue, our members plead with you to follow the words of your father by publicly declaring that you refuse to build health care reform upon the broken backs of unborn babies....

In recent days 2 groups have begun running ads in PA. About the Susan B. Anthony List ad, running in Erie and Casey's hometown, Scranton, CQ Politics reports:

The ad buy is small (only $40k), but it certainly, well, hits close to home.

The 60-second spot invokes Casey's father, the late Gov. Bob Casey (D-PA), who clashed with his party over his opposition to abortion.

Here 'tis...

And CatholicVoteAction.org just announced it is running an ad in PA beginning tomorrow on Fox News and CNN. Entitled, "Casey at the bat," here 'tis...

Americans United for Life Action just sent a letter to Majority Leader Reid reminding him that the life concerns don't end with just abortion but the bill still has a lot of other concerns:
