New NARAL Ad Asks Stupak ‘Why’ He Injected Abortion In Health Care Debate


As Sen. Ben Nelson (D-NE) is drafting his own anti-abortion amendment to the health care bill, NARAL Pro-Choice America is taking to the airwaves to fight against Rep. Bart Stupak’s (D-MI) measure that passed the House last month.

The ad asks why abortion has been injected into the health care debate. NARAL says the ad will run in midsize media markets, including Richmond, Va., Raleigh N.C. and the Portland and Bangor markets in Maine. It also will run in Stupak’s Michigan Congressional district.

NARAL president Nancy Keenan, who has been attempting to get the White House to demand abortion be stripped from the health care debate, said the ad aims to “help us enlist even more Americans into our campaign to defeat the Stupak abortion-coverage ban.”
