Planned Parenthood Launches Ad Blitz Against Four GOP Senators


Following last month’s bipartisan effort to defund Planned Parenthood in the U.S. Senate, Planned Parenthood is now launching attacks against four GOP Senators — Senators Kelly Ayotte (R-New Hampshire), Rob Portman (R-Ohio), Ron Johnson (R-Wisconsin), and Pat Toomey (R-Pennsylvania).

You can see one of the ads below:

First, Pat Toomey voted to defund Planned Parenthood, risking health care for millions of women. Now, Republicans want to shut down the government to block funding for Planned Parenthood. What would a shutdown mean for Pennsylvania? Will anyone be there to process my veterans benefits? What will that do to Social Security and Medicare? Will I be able to get my daughter into Head Start? What about small business loans? Tell Senator Toomey stand up for Planned Parenthood health care, not a government shutdown.

Of course, the ad is completely false. Even if a temporary government shutdown did occur, everything mentioned in the ad — veterans benefits, Social Security and Medicare, Head Start, and small business loans — would all be untouched. This is just typical grandstanding by the left.

It will be interesting to see how these GOP Senators respond and if outside groups come to their defense. Will the GOP fight on this? Will they launch an ad blitz of their own, exposing Planned Parenthood’s criminal effort to sell baby parts for profit? Or will they go back to the tried and failed truce strategy?
