Hey conservative Evangelicals! I've got news for you. You may not like it.
There's a new abortion ad up on Christian radio and it's probably not your cup of tea.
The group Faith in Public Life is behind the effort. Listen here and read the script below:
With 1 in 5 pregnancies in America ending in abortion and the number of abortions unchanged from 32 years ago, it's time to stop the political posturing and get serious about protecting life.
2,400 late-term abortions a year is tragic, but what often gets ignored is that 10 times more infants die each year in America largely because of inadequate healthcare.
We need to ask ourselves what it really means to be pro-life and help move the conversation beyond bumper sticker slogans.
Thankfully, some lawmakers are already working on real solutions that will drastically reduce abortions by expanding programs that encourage adoption, increasing pre- and post-natal healthcare, preventing unintended pregnancies, and helping young mothers choose life.
It's time for Democrats and Republicans to come together around solutions based on results, not rhetoric. Please learn more by visiting www.realabortionsolutions.org.
The ad is up on Christian radio right now and will air all the way until Election Day in Ohio, Pennsylvania, Michigan, Indiana, North Carolina, Virginia, Florida, Wisconsin, Minnesota and Missouri.
Moderate and progressive Evangelicals are pushing hard to change the debate on abortion in this country. They have been very aggressive in their efforts. Is their truly common ground or will conservative Evangelicals not budge?
