EPA air rules are pro-life?
Environment and Energy Daily reports,
The Evangelical Environmental Network launched a new multi-state ad campaign yesterday urging lawmakers to support U.S. EPA regulations on mercury and air toxics.
The $150,000 campaign, including radio ads and billboards in seven states, follows a September campaign in which the organization targeted a trio of Republican lawmakers opposed to the regulations.
The new radio ads target Sens. Bob Casey (D-Pa.), Mark Pryor (D-Ark.), John Boozman (R-Ark.), Debbie Stabenow (D-Mich.), Carl Levin (D-Mich.), Kelly Ayotte (R-N.H.), Scott Brown (R-Mass.), Olympia Snowe (R-Maine) and Susan Collins (R-Maine) and Rep. Marcy Kaptur (D-Ohio). Even though several of those lawmakers are avowed supporters of abortion rights, the group described them all as “pro-life or sensitive to pro-life concerns.”
In the one-minute spots, Tracey Bianchi, a Chicago-area pastor, echoes the September ads, stating: “As an evangelical mom and pastor I believe that every life is a precious gift from God and I expect members of Congress who say they are pro-life to use their power to protect that life, especially the unborn.”
