Planned Parenthood Launches Election Ads Against Pennsylvania Forced Ultrasound Bill

Robin Marty

Requiring trans-vaginal ultrasounds is turning into a real election issue now that Planned Parenthood Votes is weighing in.

Planned Parenthood Votes, the electoral arm of Planned Parenthood Federation of America, is entering the Pennsylvania special election with a campaign ad of their own.  Democrat Patrick Slattery and Republican Ryan Mackenzie are both vying for an open seat and the fate of the state’s proposed forced ultrasound bill, which is currently tabled, could be in the hands of the winner.

Via Womens ENews:

The 30-second TV ad aims at sending a message to state Republicans who are attempting to pass a restrictive ultrasound bill. The TV spot is backed by a  $100,000 cable buy and will air starting the evening of April 17 through April 24, Election Day.

Watch the ad below.
