MEDIA ADVISORY, Dec. 20 /Christian Newswire/ -- American Right To Life Action, a new 527 political organization, is running its first political television ad statewide in Iowa starting today and through the Iowa Caucuses on January 3, 2008. "We have tested this ad with focus groups," said Steve Curtis, president of ARTL Action, "and it has everyone laughing, laughing with us, at Mitt Romney for being such an obvious liar about the most important issue for any leader in America: abortion."
Romney Fairytale Script
Once upon a time there was a man named Mitt who said a very bad thing:
Romney: "I believe that abortion should be safe and legal in this country"
Then he thought of campaigning in Utah and said something different. "I am NOT pro-choice!"
But when he came back to liberal Massachusetts:
Romney: "I will preserve and protect a woman's right to choose."
Then in 2004 he magically became pro-life, but only six months later:
Romney: "I am absolutely committed to my promise to maintain the status quo with regards to law related to abortion and choice."
The spell must have worn off.
Now he's on the campaign trail again, and he's back to being pro-life.
Romney: "I was pro-choice; I'm pro-life." … "I changed my position" … "I never said I was pro-choice."
Narrator: BR: Mitt Romney, willing to sacrifice children, lying for your vote.

According to their website, ARTLAction.com, "American RTL Action exists to provide leadership in the fight to advocate enforcement of God's enduring command, Do not murder (Luke 18:20), especially in the realm of government. For decades, the pro-life industry provided campaign cover for pro-choice candidates by deceiving well-meaning pro-lifers. ARTL Action is determined to end that ability to mislead Christians into supporting those who defend various forms of intentional child-killing. When it comes to child killing, exceptions are a window to the soul. ARTL Action will throw open that window so all well-meaning people can see where a political candidate actually stands. At ARTL Action, we expose the liberal in the conservative."
