Charlie Crist faces pro-life radio ads after vetoing abortion-ultrasound bill

in Statewide by

Florida Gov. Charlie Crist is facing a new radio advertising campaign from a pro-life group after recently vetoing a bill that would have allowed women a chance to see an ultrasound of their unborn baby prior to an abortion.

Today, the Family Research Council Action PAC launched a statewide radio ad campaign in response to the veto. The ad will air across the state over the next week on 74 Florida radio stations.

“Governor Charlie Crist used to claim to be pro-life. Now he’s just pro-Crist. Since leaving his party he’s decided he’d rather be pro-abortion, removing the pro-life section from his website and vetoing a bill that would allow women to see an ultrasound of their child before having an abortion,” the FRC ad says.

In conjunction with the radio ads, the FRC has launched a website attacking Crist: http://www.stopcharlie.com
