New Ad Says Obamacare Will Finance Abortion, Deny Surgery for Seniors

A new Family Research Council ad claims Obamacare will finance abortion but not surgery for seniors.


"They won't pay for my surgery, but we're forced to pay for abortions," gripes a senior in this provocative new ad from Family Research Council Action. It will air in five states: Pennsylvania, Arkansas, Alaska, Louisiana, and Nebraska. "The ad urges opposition to a healthcare plan that will deny care to 'our greatest generation' and deny life to 'our future generation,' " FRC Action says in a news release.

It strikes me that the Family Research Council's anti-Obamacare blitz is aimed not only at derailing the Democrats but also at showing the GOP how helpful the group could be as the party wonders how much it should be relying on religious conservatives.
