The pro-life Susan B. Anthony List has launched a $150,000 radio and phone campaign targeting Bart Stupak and four other other self-proclaimed pro-life Democrats who voted for the abortion-funding health care bill.

You can listen to the ad here. Transcript:

“It was the ultimate betrayal.

“Congressman Bark Stupak told us he was pro-life.  Stupak promised us he would protect the unborn.  That he would stand firm…and lead the coalition to keep abortion funding out of the health care bill.

“But Bart Stupak betrayed us…and voted to spend federal dollars – our dollars - on abortions.  He should be ashamed.

“…Tell Bart Stupak we will not forget.” 

The pro-life campaign against the Stupak Democrats comes as reports emerge that Stupak is considering retirement, and a Tea Party group cuts its own ad targeting Stupak.

Stupak's potential Republican challenger Dan Benishek spoke to THE WEEKLY STANDARD last week.
