The pro-life cause is usually seen as one made up of conservatives and Christians.
But it turns out the mass killing of the pre-born is horrific enough for even some leftists to oppose.
And this progressive presidential candidate just shocked everyone with a TV ad supporting this conservative viewpoint.
A self-described “secular progressive activist” from, of all places, San Francisco happens to vehemently oppose abortion.
A daring TV ad promoting life
Now the left-wing activist has taken two big steps to promote the pro-life cause.
First, she helped create a daring TV ad that clearly exposes the “brutality of abortion,” especially late term abortions.
Then, she used a legal loophole to make sure TV producers wouldn’t censor her ad — she decided to run for president.
Terrisa Bukovinac is the founder of ‘Progressive Anti-Abortion Uprising’, a group dedicated to “nonviolent civil disobedience in defense of the unborn and their parents.”
She first made headlines back in March of 2022, when she and activist Lauren Handy found the remains of over 100 aborted babies.
This included five babies who were “either killed in partial-birth abortions, or left to die after birth,” in a box marked “medical waste” outside the Washington Surgi-Center in Washington, D.C.
The five mostly formed babies later became known as the “D.C. five.”
“One of the worst moments of my life”
“Pulling their broken bodies out of that box was one of the worst moments of my life,” Bukovinac posted on her campaign website.
Bukovinac and Handy took the box to Handy’s residence, where they documented their disturbing discovery on film.
They also made arrangements to lay the babies to rest respectfully.
They even gave each of the 115 babies a name and, even though they have strong “secular” beliefs, made sure each had “a funeral Mass” as well.
But despite their care for these 115 victims of abortion, their activism on behalf of the unborn caused Bukovinac and others in PAAU to face strong opposition, especially from Democrats.
And Democrat D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser even ignored all calls to investigate possible crimes at the Washington Surgi-Center and instead accused Handy of engaging in “extremist anti-abortion activity.”
Giving a voice to the voiceless
Tired of having no pro-life representation in the Democrat Party, Bukovinac stepped up and launched a campaign for president as a pro-life Democrat.
“I’m running to ensure the pro-life Democrats have a future in politics,” she stated on her website, Terrisa for President 2024.
Bukovinac seems to harbor sincere progressive beliefs.
She supports illegal immigration and racial “justice,” as well as the “abolition” of prisons.
She also blames the “exploitative capitalist system” for the tragedy of abortion.
But she strongly rails against “the Abortion Industrial Complex,” and her pro-life radicalism may make her an attractive candidate for some Christians and other conservatives who still long for a pro-life Democrat.
Bukovinac knows she doesn’t stand a chance of winning the Democrat nomination but says her campaign isn’t about winning the nomination at all but instead is about ensuring that the footage of the D.C. five can reach the American people.
That’s why Bukovinac created the powerful but admittedly graphic campaign ad, featuring the D.C. five.
She wants to “disrupt the consciences of the American people” and expose what she calls “the brutality of abortion,” particularly “later abortion.”
She has submitted the ad to be aired in the Boston/New Hampshire market during “The Jimmy Fallon Show” on NBC.
And since all stations with an FCC license must run the ads of federal candidates, Bukovinac has taken advantage of a federal law to ensure her pro-life work won’t be censored.
She tweeted a promotion of the ad saying, “The shameless censorship of pro-life views are why I’m running for President because as a federal candidate my ads cannot be censored!”
