UPDATE – After receiving complaints, today radio station WTOP pulled the SBA List radio ad off the air.
Below is the ad script and an updated quote from SBA List President Marjorie Dannenfelser:
“Susan B. Anthony List has learned from Washington, D.C. radio station WTOP that it will discontinue airing our paid advertisement regarding taxpayer funding of Planned Parenthood. This regrettable response to our radio spot on one of the lead topics in the current national debate is shameful for a First Amendment institution like WTOP. One of the surest signs that a policy message like ours is effective is its opponents’ pushing to silence it. Planned Parenthood speaks boldly of its pride in performing more abortions than any other entity in the United States and packaging the body parts of these aborted children for profitable use. These are the facts, however uncomfortable they may be for some to hear. Rest assured that SBA List will continue to unveil and champion the truth about Planned Parenthood, no matter what they and their allies do to suppress the reality behind their public masks.”
“It’s a fact: Planned Parenthood is America’s largest abortion business.
…nearly a million abortions in the last three years.
Its executives were caught on tape bragging about selling baby body parts.
Under federal investigation, Planned Parenthood spent thirty million last election on political activism, not women’s healthcare.
It’s time for Congress to act.
It’s time to redirect Planned Parenthood’s funding to community health centers that provide comprehensive health care to women, not abortions.
