“New” Obama Ad: “It’s a scary time to be a woman”
Apparently, “it’s a scary time to be a woman” because Romney might want to reduce the amounts of abortions because some people are irresponsible when having sex
The Washington Post’s Rachel Weiner calls this a new add, though I’ve seen it run a few times here in North Carolina. I even mentioned this in a tweet a few weeks back.
“I’ve never felt this way before, but it’s a scary time to be a woman,” says 30-something “Jenni.” “Mitt Romney is just so out of touch.”
A female narrator chimes in: “Romney opposes requiring insurance coverage for contraception and Romney supports overturning Roe vs. Wade. Romney backed a bill that outlawed all abortion, even in cases of rape and incest.”
I wonder if Jenni is related to Julia, who was able to have irresponsible sex paid for by other people?
Politifact rates the abortion claim as “Pants on Fire,” noting that Romney does support exceptions for rape and incest in abortion bans. He has endorsed a constitutional amendment that declares that life begins at conception, and fetuses must be protected accordingly. However, recent versions of that amendment allow for abortions in cases of rape or incest. Other “human life” legislation makes no such exceptions.
Politifact really rates the video as “pants on fire.” Team Obama must be pretty darned desperate to fire up their infanticide and free contraception base if they are actually mentioning the “a” word.
