“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.

    Having ordered abortions on women with poor health, I can assure you that we do not need the government in the mix. We don’t need the opinions of people who are not directly involved, in other words, the woman and the doctor. The religous bunch are getting a good emotional charge by trying to make women bow to their will. Most pastors that I know also will charge their sermons with the issue knowing that the plate will be a bit bigger that Sunday.

    I have seen just about everything in this debate. I have seen people that were very committed to getting rid of abortion, that is until their daugher got pregnant and then things changed. Or a doctor that was part of the anti movement till he his mistress became with child.

    We don’t need laws concerning women, that makes us like the Muslims. We don’t need laws that single out the rich, that makes us like the communist. We need the government out of our lives. This ad is geared to get your emotions going and divide the conservative vote as their are a large number of conservatives that see no problem with abortion or if they do they see a major problem with the government regulating it. What is the difference between a child of rape or a fetus of casual sex. Both are still a life. The fact is that we have no business telling women what to do.

    Now a bigger issue is why 20 pills of viagra cost over $500. That is something we need to do something about.

    Ok, I’ll gloss over your attack on religion’s view on the sanctity of life and speak on your concern over government intervention in personal actions.

    While we who believe in the role the government has in protecting life, we also don’t like it when the government gets involved in personal choices, with choices inside your home, etc.

    While I like the laws necessary to protect human life, I am concerned with putting people in jail for making that choice. It’s a struggle I have as a man. We all agree that people should be put in jail for abusing or killing animals needlessly. But, when it comes to killing a growing baby,… we waffle.

    I would like to see pro-life laws to be more focused on education, training and resources and less on punishment.

    But, if we don’t place respect of life in to our foundational laws, then we have no way of actually protecting life.

    But, I love how we have ignored the fact that most insurance companies do offer some level of coverage for female birth control. (WHY NOT MALES??) But, to mandate that all insurance companies provide it for free?!?!? WHY?

    Where did this come from? Who was even calling out for it before it was mandated by ObamaDoesn’tCare? I don’t understand it.

    If you want women to quit having abortions, go preach to them. It is not the place of government to make it easy for pastors. I can tell you more stories about pastor, preist, nuns and rabiis that would make the guy in Penn look like a saint.

    I agree david, there are sick people all over. But what does that have to do with government advocating for or against abortions?

    So we have no business protecting life?
