Melissa Ohden's abortion survivor ad to debut in Missouri

Posted By on Thu, Aug 30, 2012 at 9:45 AM

You're going to be hearing the name Melissa Ohden a lot over the next several days. Ohden, who identifies herself as a survivor of a failed abortion, is the focal point of a new political advertisement that will begin airing shortly in Missouri (Politico noted that the ad debuts with a $150,000 buy in the state). The ad, created and paid for by Susan B. Anthony List Inc., seeks to attack President Barack Obama's voting record on late-term abortions as a state senator in Illinois.

Susan B. Anthony List Inc. is an organization with a stated mission of educating and mobilizing pro-life women in an effort to ultimately end abortion. Emily Buchanan, the executive director for SBA List, told U.S. News and World Report that the ad is running first in Missouri because it is "at the center of the debate on abortion." Considering that we're still discussing U.S. Rep. Todd Akin's comments on "legitimate rape," that's probably an accurate assessment of the Show-Me State. The only question is whether this campaign advertisement will look tame based on what unfolds over the next three months leading up to the elections in November.
