Congressional candidate David Lewis purchased a 30 second ad spot that is set to air in the Cincinnati and Dayton area on Sunday that shows graphic images of fetuses.
Lewis is an official candidate in the March 6 Republican primary, challenging Speaker John Boehner in the 8th Congressional District.
The text of the ad is as follows:
“ John Boehner said, ‘Any politician can say he is pro-life, actions speak louder than words.’ We agree John but you betrayed your word, you betrayed us and you betrayed the babies. As House Speaker, John Boehner could’ve defunded the largest baby killers in America, Planned Parenthood, but Boehner caved into Obama and gave Planned Parenthood our money. Boehner has blood on his hands. I’m David Lewis and I approve this message."
Lewis’ campaign said it plans to air the ad on numerous stations in the area, during the Super Bowl pre-game show on NBC.
Lewis said his campaign is aimed at contending with Boehner on pro-life legislation.
“Voters in the eighth district of Ohio are tired of hearing empty rhetoric from the establishment Republican John Boehner. At the very minimum, Mr. Boehner could and should have defunded Planned Parenthood, saving babies and citizen's hard earned tax dollars,” Lewis said. “Mr. Boehner has done little to save babies in his two decades in the United States House of Representatives. As a House member I would work tirelessly to pass pro-life legislation including working towards making it a criminal act to kill an unborn baby.”
Lewis, a UC graduate, is a Tea Party and Pro-Life leader who’s goal is to make it a criminal act to kill a child from conception until birth.
