FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) — An anti-abortion activist who’s running for Congress says he will air an ad this week in Kentucky and Indiana showing a dismembered fetus.
Andrew Beacham is running against Republican congressman Brett Guthrie, but not with the intent of winning. Instead, he is using his candidacy to criticize President Barack Obama’s support for abortion rights.
Beacham says he is one of seven candidates affiliated with longtime anti-abortion leader Randall Terry, the founder of Operation Rescue. Terry said candidates will run anti-Obama ads in battleground states.
Rick McCue of WBKO-TV in Bowling Green, Ky., said the station can’t refuse to air the ad.
