Vote No on One campaign in TN features an abortion supporting doctor who talks about a woman finding out she was pregnant the same day she found out her cancer returned. The woman choose to fight the cancer and continue the pregnancy. The result was that the baby lived and she died. These are the facts. Anyone who has battled cancer understands that sometimes the treatment does not save their life. She is trying to suggest that not having an abortion contributed to her demise. She did pursue cancer treatments. If that was indeed a fact, she would have led with it.
"It was her decision and no one else's" says the doc. Viewers think this is a pro life ad. Not so fast... the abortion supporting doctor says the following...."no politician has the right to legislate these personal and private decisions." She further goes on to say that to support amendment one makes no exceptions for awful things that can happen during pregnancy. FALSE,FALSE,FALSE ...abortion was legal to save the mother's life even before 1973.
Notice what word is missing?? ABORTION !! They are obviously not comfortable with their own branding. The word itself is toxic! They cleverly parse their words to suggest that abortion could be banned to save the life of the mother if the amendment passes. Abortion is legal due to federal law regardless of the reason or stage of pregnancy. They know that, but the purpose of this ad is to scare and confuse.
This campaign is depending heavily on out of state funding from ACLU and Planned Parenthood. The abortion industry brags about their 2000 victory in Tennessee.....saying look what we were able to do in the buckle of the Bible belt... eliminating all meaningful regulations around abortion at any stage for any reason.
Let's notice the wording of the Yes ad....while the No ad features an abortion supporting doctor, the Yes ad features people,deals with facts and is not afraid to say the A word.
Vote Yes on One! Restore to the people their voice !
