Has anyone seen the "historic media" anti abortion ad?

I saw it for the first time last night, it terrified me. It is designed to scare the heck out of any woman even contemplating abortion. Shows "babies" really embryos in various stages of growth.

It was run during "The Voice" a favorite of young women. What do DU'ers think about that type of ad? I haven't seen them on network TV for a LONG time.

It is, but it is hard to get one in many states and this kind of ad won't help young women. redstatebluegirl Apr 2014 #2

Primetime shows are automatically recorded so I'm sure I have it. I'm afraid it's going to really anger me though.

How old men could call the shots on a woman's health issue. I cannot fathom that. When I see these old teapubliKKans spew things like knowing what's best for women, and telling them about their OWN BODIES, I freak out. If they were women, this would never come up! . Keep up the good fight.
