Anti-choice PAC targets Clinton for early Attack

By Allison Stevens

WASHINGTON (WOMENSENEWS)–
Life and Liberty PAC, a new anti-choice political action committee in Washington, D.C., has so far attacked Sen. Hillary Clinton in Iowa, New Hampshire, Michigan and South Carolina and is planning to continue doing so in other states before Feb. 5, when more than 20 states hold nominating contests.

Altogether it plans to spend $500,000 in early primary states on phone calls warning voters that Clinton has been downplaying her support for abortion rights in her race against Illinois Sen. Barack Obama and former North Carolina Sen. John Edwards.

While all three candidates are pro-choice, Mary Lewis–who founded the PAC in September because she said other anti-choice groups were not being aggressive enough–said Clinton is their top target because she is more hostile on the issue. Clinton, for example, is a co-sponsor of the Freedom of Choice Act, a bill that would enshrine protections for abortion rights into law; Obama is not.

You already know that I’m a Hillary fan, so suffice to say we agree in regards to the right to choose.

  1. I’m starting to worry that the Republicans will eviscerate Hillary even worse than they’d do to Obama. I might go with him as the candidate for this reason, because she may not be electable. The right wing has lots of experience dissing Billary.

  2. Sure, Hillary is a controversial choice but I think we can be fairly certain that the republicans will eviserate either candidate… and while I respect obama I also aknowledge the international respect that “billary” embodies. We have huge global issues to deal with in the near future and I think the international community will respond well to a familiar face and extensive experiance.
