Pro-Life Activist Blasts Romney Over Pro-Abortion Fundraising Commerical

A pro-life activist is expressing disapproval over efforts by Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney to pander for both votes and fundraising dollars by touting his support for abortion and contraception through a new political advertisement.

While watching the recent Romney campaign commercial online, Michael Marcavage of the Campaign to Stop Stericycle says that he found not only the advertisement to be “sickening,” but also Romney’s appeal for campaign contributions at the end.

As previously reported, Romney recently released a new advertisement geared toward women voters, which features Sarah Pinto, a former Obama supporter. In the 30-second production, the woman outlines that she had concerns about Romney’s “extreme” abortion views until she realized that he wasn’t completely opposed to abortion after all.

“You know, those ads saying that Mitt Romney would ban all abortions and contraception seemed a bit extreme, so I looked into it,” she says. “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,” Minto continues. “But, I’m more concerned with the debt our children will be left with.”

She advises that she voted for Barack Obama in 2008, but does not plan to do so this election.

“We just can’t afford four more years,” she states.

The advertisement concludes with the required, “I’m Mitt Romney, and I approve this message.”

It is at this point that Marcavage said that he noted a “contribute” button, asking supporters to financially support Romney’s campaign for his beliefs regarding abortion and contraception.

“It is shameful enough that Mitt Romney wants to announce to the world that he approves of killing children and isn’t like those ‘extreme’ people who believe that life should be protected in all circumstances,” Marcavage said. “Now, he wants to go one step further and use his support for infanticide as a fundraising opportunity by asking people to donate to his campaign. Truly sickening.”

Earlier this year, the Campaign to Stop Stericycle had called upon Mitt Romney to withdraw from the presidential race over his pro-abortion views and his investment in the medical waste company Stericycle, which collects and incinerates aborted babies. It outlined that in November 1999, Romney’s financial group, Bain Capital, along with Madison Dearborn Partners, invested $75 million in the company, which is now not only the leading medical waste disposal service in the nation, but also the premier waste removal company used by abortionists.

“Mitt Romney and Bain Capital are responsible for assisting Stericycle in becoming the nation’s greatest ally to Planned Parenthood and leader in the destruction of aborted babies,” Marcavage stated, who endorses neither Romney or Obama. “They have pocketed nearly 50 million dollars in blood money from the burning of aborted babies, which Mitt Romney has never renounced. Romney’s past and present actions unequivocally show that he has and will continue to play an integral role in furthering the holocaust of the unborn. He cannot be trusted.”

Marcavage, who has stood for life with others outside of one of Stericycle’s largest incineration plants, located in Graham, North Carolina, said that it is very sobering to realize that the arms, legs and once beating hearts of unborn boys and girls are being burned to ash at the facility, as their lives are literally going up in smoke.

The Campaign to Stop Stericycle states that it has seen success in its efforts to stop the medical waste company from assisting abortionists. To date, two national trucking companies, Penske Truck Leasing, Inc. and Ryder System, Inc., have both prohibited Stericycle from using their leased trucks at abortion facilities. The campaign outlines that it believes if businesses would stop helping abortionists, their doors would close and lives would be saved.

Romney’s abortion advertisement is available on the candidate’s YouTube page and is airing on television stations in Virginia, Ohio and Wisconsin.

    The pro-life movement is showing itself to be motivated by economic preferences rather than biblical convictions concerning unborn babies. Anyone with a conviction about the sanctify of life cannot biblically defend their position to vote for Romney on the basis that he is the lesser of two evils. A vote for “lesser evil” is still a vote for evil. I guess I shouldn’t be surprised at anything anymore, but it is truly disappointing to me to see the majority of professing Christian who confess to be against abortion, now making allowances for killing certain unborn children (result of incest, rape). Justify their position all they try, it reveals total compromise and hypocrisy. What changed the pro-life stand in the last year to being one of abortion in certain circumstances? Simply because Obama must not go back in? Whatever happened to the Christian belief in the providence of God? Does God need the Christian vote for Romney to stem the tide of socialism from the Democratic party? Does the Almighty want Christians to now compromise clear biblical truths about the sanctify of life in order to help Him get Obama out of office? I call it compromise and hypocrisy. Would love to see a professing Christian post a biblical defense for killing an unborn baby if it was conceived in sin through rape or incest.

    • it doesnt matter how a baby is conceived its still a little human life, God said you cant take what you cant give,no human can give life and certainly cant take. I think all of america should have to watch silent scream watch that little baby jump around trying to get away from that instrument its awful and very heart breaking. I would love for the president and all white house to see it,it will bring you to sobbing tears. it is murder dont matter how you look at it.Prisoners are being put to death for murder ,but its ok to murder an unborn baby, there is also a scripture in the Bible about about shedding innocence blood,I believe its in proverb,Look at cain and able one killed the other and God ask where is your brother his blood crys out to me,just think all the babys that crying out to God.
