Anti-abortion, but oddly pro-choice, radio ad  

Interesting. I've never quite heard or seen an ad like this before. Faith in Life has begun running unique radio ads that call for decreasing the number of abortions, but don't deliver an anti-choice message. The text of the ad is:

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

Hear the actual ad here.

What next?

    Still seems anti-choice to me.

    Well, it does say "help women choose life." Actually, these are probably the only people I'd actually call "pro-life."

    ehh yeah... saying "help women choose life" really sounds more like the "lets pretend we're giving you a choice when really we only want you to choose THIS choice." like the whole sarah palin thing.. "this was bristol's CHOICE." was it really? or did you sorta force her into it? (not that i would know)

    i wish there would be more of an emphasis on preventing unwanted pregnancies. it still sounds to me like its saying "poor young women... lets help them make the right choices"... as in, they dont trust women to make the right choices. then again, it doesnt accuse women of beeing evil baby killers, so thats a plus.

    Yeah, you definitely have a point. It's not nearly as negative as some pro-life propaganda can be, but it still holds a pro-life message.
