First Paid Effort Against Trump Will Run On Facebook & Instagram & Target Women In Florida, Ohio & Washington D.C.

Following Donald Trump’s remarks on MSNBC that women who have an abortion should face “some form of punishment” Priorities USA, in partnership with Planned Parenthood Votes, is launching a five figure digital ad slamming Donald Trump as demeaning, insulting and dangerous.

The ad, titled “Punishment” will run on Facebook and Instagram and target women in Florida, Ohio, and Washington D.C.

“Donald Trump’s vile assertion that women should be punished for having an abortion is the latest example of just how demeaning, insulting and dangerous he really is for women across this country,” said Anne Caprara, Priorities USA Executive Director. “"Taking away a woman’s basic right to healthcare puts her life in danger.  Trump’s latest attack on women is yet another reminder of just how important it’s going to be to support Hillary Clinton this fall and Priorities is pleased to work with Planned Parenthood Votes to hold him accountable.”

“Donald Trump’s clear disregard for women’s health and lives is staggering,” said Deirdre Schifeling, Executive Director of the Planned Parenthood Votes. “We know what it looks like to see women punished for having an abortion: It is already happening across this country, and the consequences are devastating. Yet this shocking stance is not new: it is a part of the Republican party platform, and it’s what anti-abortion politicians like Ted Cruz and John Kasich have been voting on and enacting for years. One in three women will have an abortion in her lifetime. Those women deserve to access medical care without fear of violence, harassment, or punishment. It’s clear that Donald Trump and his anti-abortion agenda is far too extreme for the women of this country.” 

This is the first piece of paid communication either Priorities USA or Planned Parenthood Votes has done against Donald Trump.
