New ads in Spanish lift up Clinton’s long record of fighting for health care, regardless of immigration status
 

Ads join six-figure ad campaign across TV, digital news sites, and mobile phones

Washington, DC – Today, Planned Parenthood Votes revealed two new Spanish ads as part of the #ShesWithUs campaign — a six-figure TV and digital ad buy in Nevada featuring the stories of real women sharing why they support Secretary Clinton for president. In “Esparanza” and “Janet,” both women tell their stories of why they are supporting Hillary Clinton based on her tireless record of protecting health care for everyone, regardless of immigration status.

These new Spanish ads join the existing #ShesWithUs videos — “Reyna,” “Latonya,” and  “Lisa” — running on broadcast and cable channels, online high-traffic Nevada news sites, as digital banner ads and and mobile phone ads through the week until the day of the caucuses.

All five women featured in the ad campaign are Planned Parenthood Action Fund members from Nevada. In the ads, they discuss what’s at stake for women in this election, and why Secretary Clinton’s unrivaled record as a lifelong women’s health champion shows that #ShesWithUs.

  • Esparanza, a new US citizen originally from Guatemala, is participating in her first election this year, and supporting Hillary Clinton because she cares about making sure everyone has health care, regardless of their immigration status. Esperanza is an activist in the community, volunteers with Planned Parenthood, and with other progressive organizations focused on immigrant rights.

  • Janet, has been a volunteer community health educator in Las Vegas for six years. As she declares in the ad, she’s also a Planned Parenthood patient. She cares deeply about electing someone who will protect her health care. That's why she supports Hillary Clinton -- she believes this country needs her!

Quote from Deirdre Schifeling, Executive Director of the Planned Parenthood Action Fund:

“There’s only one candidate in this race who for decades has been an outspoken champion for women’s health and rights — and who has a real plan to not just protect the progress we’ve made, but to keep expanding women’s access to basic health care. Hillary Clinton fought — and succeeded — in expanding women’s access to birth control as a Senator, and was one of the earliest and most prominent voices supporting the Affordable Care Act — when so many were trying to tear it down. Clinton has faced down political attacks on the health care Planned Parenthood provides time and time again. And Hillary Clinton will keep fighting to ensure everyone has access to basic reproductive health care — regardless of their income, zip code, or immigration status.”

“Women across the country are standing up to say they support Hillary Clinton, because they know she will fight for our families, our health, and our children’s future. Their message is clear: we stand with her because, no matter what, she’s with us.”

In conjunction with Planned Parenthood Votes’ ad buy, Planned Parenthood Action Fund is running a grassroots campaign to reach out to tens of thousands of Nevada voters before Saturday’s Caucus.

 

Secretary Clinton has spent her entire career fighting to expand access to birth control and basic health care so that everyone --- regardless of where you come from or how much money you make — has the care they need. As Senator, Hillary Clinton introduced 8 pieces of legislation with the clear purpose of expanding and protecting women’s access to reproductive health care — when others in Congress were intent on blocking it. And she has stood by and fought for the millions of women, men, and young people who rely on Planned Parenthood for care.

 

Planned Parenthood Action Fundendorsed Hillary Clinton in front of a crowd of 500 in New Hampshire on January 10. Planned Parenthood political and advocacy organizations plan to spend an unprecedented $20 million in this election cycle, with a focus on the presidential race, as well as key Senate races in New Hampshire, Nevada, Wisconsin, Pennsylvania and Ohio to make sure voters know where the candidates stand on these issues and how candidates’ positions will impact them.

 

The Planned Parenthood Action Fund endorsement decision followed a robust, months-long process. All three Democratic candidates were interviewed by a panel made up of supporters — patient advocates, medical professionals, activists, volunteers and Action Fund members. The endorsement was then evaluated and voted on by more than 100 representatives from across all 50 states.

 

Women’s health was a deciding issue in the 2012 presidential election. Romney took a hard stance on Planned Parenthood and reproductive health care in 2012, and he then lost the election by thebiggest gender gap in recent history. InVirginia in 2013, women’s health was a deciding factor when Terry McAuliffe won women overall — and won 59% of the votes of people who said abortion was the most important issue to them, a total of 20% of the electorate.

 

Fifteen national polls since last summer have shown strong support for Planned Parenthood. Polling inmajor swing states also shows strong support for Planned Parenthood.
