The Joe Biden for reelection campaign released its first ad following the primary debate between the Republican candidates. It focuses on abortion. The ad, which will run on YouTube and Connected TV, aims to appeal to female voters in key states. It calls out the candidates for being out of touch with the issues related to reproductive healthcare.
It emphasizes that women should make decisions regarding their reproductive health care, not politicians. It then shows footage of Donald Trump, who proudly claimed that he was the one who got rid of the controversial Roe v. Wade abortion ruling, referring to the Supreme Court justices he appointed.
The ad highlights Ron DeSantis' statement during the debate, where the Florida governor said that he believed in the concept of life. Despite the pressure from groups opposing abortion, Trump and DeSantis have not signed a national ban on the procedure.
It then focuses on Tim Scott, who said that he would sign the strictest pro-life legislation in the country if he were elected president. It also states that he would sign a bill that would restrict abortion at 15 weeks. However, it contradicts Biden and Harris' statements about their plans to overturn Roe v. Wade and prevent a national abortion ban from becoming law.
Although Senator Scott and Mike Pence supported a 15-week ban on abortion, Nikki Haley, the former UN ambassador, stated that a federal ban would not pass in the current Senate. DeSantis, on the other hand, emphasized his pro-life stance.
According to the article, the debate over abortion has become a key issue in the presidential race, as it can help differentiate the Republican candidates from one another. The Biden campaign is using this issue to appeal to white voters, who are a crucial part of the Democratic Party.
