"Cory Booker on abortion?: not safe, not rare, and taxpayer funded up to the day of delivery."

Thus ends the new ad released today by American Commitment Action Fund (AC Action Fund) and Susan B. Anthony List (SBA List) targeting Newark, New Jersey Mayor Cory Booker's radical abortion record as he seeks the U.S. Senate in the special election to succeed Frank Lautenberg.
