Female Announcer: Is Elizabeth Dole really that different from these Republican hopefuls? 

Pat Robertson calls Dole, "...a dear friend... I'd love to see her in the White House."  (New York Times, 7/14/96)

And on a woman's right to choose, Dole admits she supports a constitutional amendment to outlaw almost all abortions. (Daily News, 4/22/96) 

No wonder a newspaper noted Dole has "... strong anti-abortion positions."  (San Francisco Chronicle, 8/6/96) 

Like the rest of the Republicans on the far right - 

Elizabeth Dole is anti-choice. 


Background: NARAL's Kate Michelman had a statement accompanying this ad: "Presidential candidates have taken just the first steps in their campaigns, but already some are stepping away from their records and positions on choice," Michelman said.  "They are trying to hide their extreme views because they know those views are not shared by the majority of the American people.  We cannot afford to allow a single American to be fooled. Our most fundamental rights are at risk."
