Pro-Abortion "Catholic" Group Plans New Television Advertising Campaign

(Hat tip:

Washington, DC ( -- A pro-abortion "Catholic" group plans a new television advertising campaign targeting key states in the presidential elections to attack pro-life groups and candidates for not supporting what it considers the best approach to reducing abortions. Catholics for Choice president Jon O'Brien announced the new campaign.

"If there is one issue that resonates across all sections of society, it is that Americans want to reduce the need for abortion," O'Brien told in a press release.

"Over the coming weeks, and continuing throughout the year, Catholics for Choice will be promoting our Prevention Not Prohibition campaign," he added. "The first series of ads will appear in states where early caucuses and primaries take place: Iowa, New Hampshire, North Carolina, Nevada and Colorado."

When pro-life advocates think of reducing abortions, they think of limits like parental involvement, ending taxpayer-funding or giving women information on abortion's risks and alternatives.

But the Catholics for Choice campaign is focused on promoting contraception and the morning after pill, that statistics from Scotland show raised, not lowered, the number of abortions.
