The following comes from a September 10 story on the LifeSiteNews website.
While some media pundits wondered if the President overemphasized abortion during last week’s Democratic National Convention, Planned Parenthood has responded by rewarding Barack Obama with the largest ad buy in its history.
The nation’s largest abortion provider has dedicated $3.2 million to air a new television commercial in the swing states of Ohio and Virginia.
The new spot, “Turn Back the Clock,” attacks Mitt Romney’s support for overturning Roe v. Wade and for defunding Planned Parenthood. It echoes the theme of the Obama campaign’s anti-Romney ad, entitled, “This is Not the 1950s.”
$1.85 million of ads will target northern Virginia, especially the D.C. suburbs that helped Obama turn the usually Republican-leaning state blue in 2008. The area is among the nation’s most affluent and is home to the state’s highest concentration of registered Democrats, many of them unionized government workers – a group that disproportionately supports the Democratic Party.
Another $1.35 million will flood Ohio television sets. That nearly matches the $1.4 million the organization spent attacking Romney over the summer.
Taxpayer subsidies make up nearly half of Planned Parenthood’s budget, amounting to $487.4 million in 2010. Patrick Reilly of the Cardinal Newman Society told LifeSiteNews.com earlier this year, “This is a windfall for Planned Parenthood and its deadly agenda.”
A Real Clear Politics averages show Obama and Romney mired in a statistical dead heat in Virginia and President Obama with a modest 2.2 percent lead in Ohio.
No Republican has ever won the presidency without carrying Ohio.
The speakers at last week’s Democratic National Convention, including Planned Parenthood President Cecile Richards and Georgetown Law student Sandra Fluke, focused heavily on promoting abortion-on-demand. The party platform endorses taxpayer-funded abortion through all nine months of pregnancy.

It seems to me the evil one is “upping the ante.” as Our Queen of the World is triumphing. We may not see it in full light yet, but she is here. “Who is she that comes forth as the morning rising, fair as the moon, bright as the sun, terrible as an enemy set in battle array?
Carolyn, You are right about the Triumphing of the Immaculate Heart. “We may not see it in full light yet, but she is here.”
“Confer, O Lord, on us, who serve beneath the standard of Mary, that
fullness of faith in You and trust in her, to which it is given to conquer the world. Grant us a lively faith, animated by charity, which will enable us to perform all our actions from the motive of pure love of You, and ever to see You and serve You in our neighbor; a faith, firm and immovable as a rock, through which we shall rest tranquil and steadfast amid the crosses, toils and disappointments of life; a courageous faith which will inspire us to undertake and carry out without hesitation great things for your glory and for the salvation of souls; a faith which will be our Legion’s Pillar of Fire – to lead us forth united – to kindle everywhere the fires of divine love – to enlighten those who are in darkness and in the shadow of death – to inflame those who are lukewarm – to bring back life to those who are dead in sin; and which will guide our own feet in the way of peace; so that – the battle of life over – or Legion may reassemble, without the loss of any one, in the kingdom of your glory. Amen”
Thanks Catherine…and may we say, Hail Mary, my Mistress, my treasure, my joy, Queen of my heart, my Mother, my life, my sweetness, my dearest hope…..
The reports that the Demoncrat convention actually gave the Obamanation a surge just goes to show how far into the gutter America has gone. They had a clear contrast and they did not “choose life”!
May God have mercy on America, once the Land of the Free and the Brave, now the land of the government slaves and their government slavemasters!
God bless, yours in Their Hearts,

1,960,000 girls have been aborted under Obama. That’s the real War on Women. That’s Health Care?
A recent Justice Dept. report returned a result of 170,000 completed rapes plus 140,000 attempted rapes. Nat. Crime Victim Report, US Justice Dept. [Aug. 95, R. Bachman]
And how many pregnancies result?
About 1 or 2 for each 1000. This translates into an overall total of 170 to 340 assault rape pregnancies a year in the entire United States.
A study of 1,000 rape victims, who were treated medically right after the rape, reported no pregnancies. [L. Kuchera, “Postcoital Contraception with Diethylstilbestrol,” JAMA, October 25, 1971]
In another series of 117 assault rape victims, of whom only 17 were given hormone treatment after the attack, none became pregnant. [Everett & Jimerson, “The Rape Victim,” 237 OB & GYN, vol. 50, no. 1, July 1977, pp. 88-90]
There are 52% intended pregnancies and 48% unintended ones annually, therefore makeing 6.3 million pregnancies annually in 1998
of these unintended pregnancies the results were 13% miscarriage, 40% birth, 47%aborted.
in 2000, there were 1.3 million abortions, 2.1% of women from ages 15-44 have had one, making abortion one of the most common med procedures in the US
500,000 people are waiting to adopt children each year in the United States. Additionally there are waiting lists to adopt all races, disabled children, and children with Down´s Syndrom. Source: The National Adoption Clearinghouse
Registered voter says: “….2.1% of women from ages 15-44 have had one(abortion)”. This is an interesting statistic, however, it doesn’t tell the whole story. I would like to know how many women from ages 15-100 have had one! The sad truth is that just because a woman who has had an abortion is now beyond her child bearing years doesn’t necessarily translate to her now being disinterested in the abortion debate.
The Obama adminstration and Congress give our tax dollars to Planned Parenthood, which in turn repays him by spending millions of our tax dollars to help re-elect Obama and promote his Obama-care to provide abortions and contracepion. Our tax dollars at work.
It is black and white like the TV in the photo above. It should be clear to every Catholic voter who the party of life is and who the party of death is. For your own salvation move away from the Democrat party of death. They have no room for any pro life agenda. They already are using your tax money to promote, legislate and perform abortions. You may be against abortion personally and feel you cannot tell another what to do, but your hands are covered in blood.
Well, dear Voters, it is up to you. In fact, true lovers of life need to respond now — negatively — to the Democratic Party, Members of Congress, and, most importantly, to the media that enables death (and huge profits for Planned Parenthood). And, where is the Republican Party in all this? While Obama and his cronies immerse themselves in the glory of abortion blood money, the Republican Party candidates seem timid by comparison. If they are worried that women mostly love contraception and abortion rights and do not want to stir up the pot, well, then the Republicans should lose. Obama has said what he is for; now call him on it, and trust to the essential goodness of the American voter (and the workings of the Holy Ghost). Otherwise, Romney will surely lose VA and Ohio, and likely the election. Too bad the USCCB does not stand up as well and challenge Planned Parenthood on its message of death. Nope, too worried about upsetting the vast majority of the bishops, that truly love the Democratic stuff (and the neat parties). Come on, Governor Romney, you have grown in seeking the presidency, now make your transition complete.
Come on now, there are plenty of Republicans standing up boldly for the unborn. Have you been asleep all this time? Your statement does them a disservice!
There is an abundance of “Catholic” Demoncrat elected “Servants of the People” with the blood of the innocent dripping from their hands!
God bless, yours in Their Hearts,

Is this some form of bribery – since OBAMA is giving Planned Parenthood OUR tax dollars for abortions and contraceptives ? ? ?
How much of our tax dollars are going for these ads (since money is always fungible) ?
The Justice Dept should look into this. Oh, I forgot, the Justice Dept is under Obama.
It is truly sad when our tax money goes to pay for supporting an organization that promotes the worst evil on this earth and pays for ads to elect a president. Tax money should not be used to favor one party over another, let alone pay for the funding of the killing of innocent babies. It is extremely disturbing to me that all my hard work and money I pay to the government from y earnings go to such evil deeds. I pray that God shines His Light on this nation. God Love You.
And why not……they get 1 million dollars per day from us the taxpayers!
Pray for Cliff Stearns of Florida , in the House of Rep, he has been
getting a committee together and getting all ‘his ducks in a row’ to
de-fund planned parenthood!!!! PLEASE PRAY FOR HIM!!!!!
