A Florida Democrat widely considered one of the most endangered incumbents in Congress is the target of a new radio advertisement from a leading national pro-life group.
“Congressman Alan Grayson voted for taxpayer-funded abortions in Nancy Pelosi’s health-care bill,” says the ad aimed at pro-life voters in Florida’s 8th District, south of Orlando. “Alan Grayson doesn’t represent Florida values. In Washington, he voted for the largest expansion of taxpayer-funded abortions ever.”
An outspoken liberal, Grayson was called the “most loathsome member of Congress” by Reason magazine’s Michael Moynihan after the Democrat aired a TV ad blatantly distorting a statement by Republican challenger Daniel Webster.
The new anti-Grayson ad (click here to download in MP3 format) is part of a $600,000 “Life Counts” nationwide campaign by AUL Action, the political action committee of Americans United for Life.
“Americans are overwhelmingly opposed to taxpayer-funded abortion,” Dr. Charmaine Yoest, President and CEO of AUL Action said in a press release. “Candidates who supported the largest expansion of federal funding of abortion ever are going to find out that in this election, Life Counts.”
AUL Action has produced similar ads targeting 10 other at-risk House incumbents in key districts: Rep. Baron Hill (D-Ind.), Chris Carney (D-Pa.), John Boccieri (D-Ohio), Tom Perriello (D-Va.), John Spratt (D-S.C.), Bob Etheridge (D-N.C.), Paul Kanjorski (D-Pa.), Kathy Dahlkemper (D-Pa.), John Salazar (D-Colo.) and Joe Donnelly (D-Ind.).
In addition, AUL Action has produced an ad against Joyce Elliot, the Democrat running for the House seat in Arkansas’ 2nd District being vacated by Democrat Rep. Vic Snyder. That ad (click here for MP3) notes that as a state legislator Elliot “voted against a ban on partial-birth abortion in Arkansas.”
A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.

The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
