New ad, “Show Up,” slams Sen. Daines for his dangerous record on reproductive health care

Billings, MT — Today, Planned Parenthood Votes launched a five-figure ad hitting Senator Steve Daines for his out-of-touch record on health care and reproductive rights. The new advertisement, “Show Up,” highlights Daines' support for a policy that made it harder for Montana women to access affordable STI tests, birth control, and cancer screenings, and his votes attempting to defund Planned Parenthood, all while taking more than $350,000 from the insurance industry. The ad encourages Montanas to show up this cycle and vote Senator Daines out.

Watch “Show Up”

   

   

Statement from Laura Terrill, Planned Parenthood Votes’ Montana spokesperson:

“Our senators are supposed to advocate for us - not special interest groups. Daines has proven that he can’t be trusted to prioritize our health and rights. From jeopardizing access to sexual and reproductive care for Montana women to trying to keep Montanans from Planned Parenthood health centers, it is clear that Daines is severely out-of-touch with the needs of our state. We have had enough. Montanans are energized and motivated to show up and fire Daines this November.”

This new ad is a part of Planned Parenthood Votes “We Decide 2020” electoral program. “We Decide 2020” is Planned Parenthood advocacy and political organizations’ largest electoral program ever - with a historic investment of at least $45 million in key battleground states during the 2020 cycle. This month, Planned Parenthood Votes launched its electoral program in Montana, where it will support Planned Parenthood Action Fund-endorsed candidates Governor Steve Bullock and Kathleen Williams.
