The abortion ad is back, and more dishonest than ever!

You may recall that earlier in the week, I was a guest blogger on SuzyB, where I discussed a facebook ad that invited users to "become a fan" of abortion. I asked pro-lifers to pledge a dollar to each time they saw the ad.

We got a few dollars, and then nothing. The ad disappeared. Perhaps, I thought, they were just sticking their toes in the water to see whether or not the pro-life movement would say anything.

But now it's back. Perhaps having read my commentary, they realized that asking people to become a fan of abortion is crass. Their new ad rebrands them as an innocuous site about "various methods for birth control."

By "birth control," they mean abortion. This is a directory of abortion businesses, plain and simple. The only contraception even mentioned is Plan B. You will find nothing about condoms, natural family planning, the birth control pill, or any other method. You will only find limited information about abortion: how it's totally safe, and where you can get one.

Accordingly, our fundraising campaign against this disgusting and deceptive ad is back in gear. Please donate what you can. A generous donor has agreed to match your gifts up to $500.

I actually haven't seen the ad yet. But I'll be on the lookout for it and anything similar.
