A recent pro-abortion video pushed by death-cult enthusiasts including Hillary Clinton and California Governor Gavin Newsom includes an image of macy Petty.
Petty appears in the ad falling to the ground with tears flowing. The ad places the word “sad” over Petty to imply the pro-life activist was distressed at the recent Supreme Court decision in June regarding Roe v. Wade.
But this is not true.
In fact, according to Petty’s Twitter account, those are happy tears flowing. Petty responded to Clinton’s tweet sharing the ad saying, “Hey Hillary, I’m the girl crying in this video. I am pro-life and those are HAPPY tears because I just witnessed a MIRACLE!”

Macy Petty spoke with The Christian Post to discuss her outrage at her inclusion in video sharing:
“I’m part of a generation of pro-life activists,” she said. “My mom worked at a pregnancy center, and my grandma started one. So it’s in my blood. And I was just so grateful to be there to witness it because there are so many people who were in the fight before me who didn’t get to witness it.”
The pro-life activist said she was “outraged” when she saw her image and how the emotions she felt that day were being twisted and misused in an attempt to convince people to vote for abortion.
Petty also responded by writing a letter to Newsom, Clinton and the Prop 1 campaign, requesting they remove her from the video and apologize.
She believes the campaign received the letter because her image has been removed from its most recent ad. However, the original video that featured her and was shared by the former secretary of state and Newsom is still available and being shared on social media.
She maintained that Newsom, Clinton and the creators of the Prop 1 campaign video portrayed her in an “evil light” and “distorted [her] emotions as part of [their] political game.”
“You selected the portion in which I fell to my knees in tears. At this moment, I witnessed a miracle,” the pro-life activist added. “I was overwhelmed.”
“As I continued to witness history, I pondered how lucky I was to witness such an event. I thanked the Lord for this decision and for opening my eyes to the evil of abortion. This is what brought me to tears.”
Petty followed up on her original tweet to Clinton and Newsom with an open letter shared on the platform:
To the Yes on Prop1 Campaign and its supporters including, but not limited to, Hillary Clinton and Gavin Newsom: In your #yesonprop 1 campaign video, you included a clip of me, Macy Petty, crying in front of the Supreme Court. In the full video, it is obvious I am crying tears of joy upon the announcement of the Dobbs decision. I am holding a “Students for Life” banner and am with friends who are also holding pro-life signs. In your campaign video, you portrayed me in an evil light and distorted my emotions as part of your political game.
You selected the portion in which I fell to my knees in tears. At this moment, I witnessed a miracle. I was overwhelmed. As I continued to witness history, I pondered how lucky I was to witness such an event. I thanked the Lord for this decision and for opening my eyes to the evil of abortion. This is what brought me to tears. You have manipulated these emotions. You have disrespected me as a woman and an engaged member of society. Although I am distinctly pro-life in the full video, you consciously chose to portray me as pro-abortion. In the video, you note “we” are”sad.”
I am not “we.” I strongly oppose Prop 1. Do not include me in your efforts to further manipulate women and violently take life from the most vulnerable and innocent among us. Earlier this week, many shared this video of me. The list included both Hillary Clinton and Gavin Newsom. I demand you remove me from the Yes on Prop 1 campaign video and all further pro-abortion materials. I will not stand by as you use my face, my tears, and my passion in a way that promotes demonic activity.
Could you not find an early 20-year-old who was truly sad about the Dobbs decision? You must manipulate the film of an obvious opponent to your campaign? Perhaps this is the indicator that America is truly pro-life. Please remove me from all of your campaign videos and promotional materials immediately. If you truly value democracy and diversity of opinion, you will halt this blatant manipulation and apologize for the indecency.

In an interview with the pro-life California Family Council, Petty shared her feeling about Prop1 and the dishonest way her emotions were distorted to manipulate the narrative.
