New Romney Ad Sets the Romney Record on Abortion Straight

   Bookmark and Share   As the left continues to use Obama campaign Co-Chair Eva Longoria to lie about Mitt Romney and to try to have female voters buy in to their claim that Romney and the G.O.P. are waging a war on women, Mitt Romney has released another simple but very effective ad that is designed to the set his record straight on the issue of abortion. (See ad in the video at the bottom of this post).

The 30 second spot uses a woman voter named Sarah Minton to explain not only that Romney doesn’t oppose the use of contraception, and that he supports the use of abortion as an option in cases of rape, incest, or to save a mother’s life, it also takes an approach that appeals to women who may be traditional Democrats and are uncomfortable voting for a Republican.

The Romney campaign has long ago seen evidence of the fact that many Democrats, including Democrat women, are unhappy with the job Barack Obama has done, but that they don’t feel good about voting for a Republican.  So for at least three months now, the Romney-Ryan ticket has shaped and targeted messages to such people that offered them a sense of it being okay to vote for someone other than Barack Obama in 2012.  Mainly by pressing the point that they are not alone in their feelings because there are  millions of Americans who feel the same way…. like Sarah Minton.

Script of the ad entitled “Sarah”

You know those ads that saying that Mitt Romney would ban all abortions and contraception seemed a bit extreme.

So I looked in to it.

Turns out Romney doesn’t oppose contraception at all.

In fact he thinks abortion should be an option in cases of rape, incest, or to save a mother’s life.

This issue is important to me.  But I’m more concerned with the debt our children will be left with.

I voted for President Obama last time but we just can’t afford four more years.

While the ad is simple, it is also straightforward and it leaves the targeted voters with at least a subconscious understanding that President Obama really doesn’t deserve their vote a second time.
