WASHINGTON, Oct. 29 /Christian Newswire/ -- Missy Smith, federal candidate, and opponent of Eleanor Holmes Norton, has run over 100 of her graphic ads showing healthy and aborted babies in the Washington DC metro area. 25 more spots will air this weekend on the major networks and 96 on cable. See the ads at MissySmith2010.com.
The ads have created a wild fire of controversy on both sides of the issue. The predominant emotion has been disgust and fury; however, many are in full support of showing that abortion is murder.
One call from a 13-year old viewer was particularly touching:
Hi. My name is (name omitted). I'm thirteen and I just watched the commercial. It was - I never really knew anything about abortion and I thank you for your commercial. I would like to send a letter to Obama to ban abortion 'cause I never even heard of the word and then when I actually saw that commercial - it made me cry. And we want to say thank you for that commercial. And we want to STOP abortion. Thanks. Bye bye.
Missy's run has been featured in the Washington Post, The Washington Times, Wolfe Blitzer's Situation Room (CNN), and on the local ABC, FOX and CBS News affiliates.

Missy Smith States:
"This is an unprecedented opportunity in our nation's capital to show that abortion is murder. When people see the images of these murdered babies, no one can believe the lie that these are not babies."
"We only have 76 hours left to raise funds to show the ads. All contributions small and large are greatly appreciated. The babies are counting on us. It's going to be two years before this opportunity comes again."
