NARAL-Pro Choice America, formerly known as the National Abortion Rights Action League, is running radio ads in Colorado, Florida, Virginia, and Wisconsin thanking President Barack Obama for requiring private insurers to provide "free" coverage of contraception and abortifacient drugs. The ad features a woman being told by her pharmacist that her birth control pills require no co-pay and have "no charge."

"Thanks to President Obama, the 99 percent of women who use birth control in America could now here this same message," a voiceover says. "You see, we scored an important victory when the president stood up for our healthcare and guaranteed insurance coverage of birth control at no cost. He's making sure women of all faiths, no matter where they work, can get contraceptive coverage. But extremists in Congress are trying to change the policy by making it harder to get birth control with no co-pay."
