Six-figure ad buy of “Legacy” will begin airing online today in battleground states

Washington, DC — Today, Planned Parenthood Votes launched a new ad, “Legacy,” in key presidential battleground states laying out what is at stake if Donald Trump is allowed to fill Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s seat with a nominee hostile to reproductive freedom, civil rights, democracy, and health care, continuing his takeover of the federal judiciary. Planned Parenthood Votes will run the ads in Pennsylvania, Arizona and Florida and Michigan Planned Parenthood Votes SuperPAC will run its ad in Michigan, on digital platforms targeting voters in states that will be instrumental in deciding the outcome of the presidential election. The ad will extend to other battleground states in the days ahead.



Watch Planned Parenthood Votes new ad “Legacy”

Statement from Jenny Lawson, executive director of Planned Parenthood Votes:

“This is the fight of our lives for tens of millions of people across the country. A week after the election, the Supreme Court is set to hear a case that could dismantle the Affordable Care Act, the biggest advance for sexual and reproductive health in a generation. Seventeen abortion-related cases are one step away from the Supreme Court. That and so much more is at stake. President Trump has proudly committed to nominating Supreme Court justices that are committed to overturning Roe v. Wade. If Trump succeeds in filling this seat, his pick could be the deciding vote on civil rights, environmental protections, and access to health care, including abortion. No one will feel these consequences more harshly than Black and Brown people, people with low incomes, immigrants, LGBTQ+ people, and women, who already face tremendous discrimination and barriers to health care.

“If we are to protect Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s legacy, our health, and our rights, we must kick Donald Trump out of office and take back the Senate. Planned Parenthood Votes and our supporters will not rest until we do.”

With Donald Trump already announcing that he will move to fill Justice Ginsburg’s seat before the 2021 inauguration, Planned Parenthood Votes is sounding the alarm about what is at stake for our rights, our health, and our democracy. From now until the election, Planned Parenthood Votes will galvanize voters to ensure that their voices are heard. Donald Trump cannot be allowed to remain in the White House and take an axe to Ginsburg’s legacy.

An American icon.

A champion of women’s rights.  

Donald Trump wants to replace her with another Supreme Court justice before the election, against her dying wish...

Threatening coverage for preexisting conditions and reproductive freedom, just like he said he would.

We can’t let it happen. Not to her legacy. Not to her seat. Not to our health. Not now. Not ever.

Take action. Vote.
