New York NARAL: Harold Ford is NOT Pro Choice (Video)

NARAL Pro-Choice New York is making sure that New Yorkers know that Harold Ford -- the anti union, anti gay rights, christianist conservadem from Tennessee -- is anti choice:

NARAL Pro-Choice New York would like to make it perfectly clear to all New Yorkers that Harold Ford, Jr. is – unlike the overwhelming majority of New Yorkers – anti-choice. . . The ongoing debate on healthcare reform has put in clear perspective how one legislator’s vote can have a dramatic impact on the lives of American women. New York State has not – and will not – provide that anti-choice vote. NARAL Pro-Choice New York -- and more importantly, the women and men of our state – will not stand for it.

(The folks at NARAL aren't the only ones determined to squash Ford's foolish hopes of primarying Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand.) In the video clip below, NARAL demonstrates how easy it is to make a crushing tv ad against Ford. All you have to do is play clips of Harold Ford opening his mouth.

"I do not support the decision today reached by the New Jersey Supreme Court regarding gay marriage. I oppose gay marriage, and have voted twice in Congress to amend the United States Constitution to prohibit same-sex marriage. This November there's a referendum on the Tennessee ballot to ban same-sex marriage - I am voting for it."

"I was not pro-choice at one time . . . I'm pro-life. "
-- Harold Ford

"We're going to teach people the difference between right and wrong. How come your party hasn't offered legislation in the Congress and the Senate to outlaw abortions. We could have done this."
-- Harold Ford

"I voted for the PATRIOT Act, $5 trillion in defense, and against amnesty for illegals."
