The ads argue that access to abortion and other priorities are at risk if a Republican is elected, but that Clinton has “the strongest record on women’s health of anyone, ever.”

Clinton seized on Sanders’s comments this month that Planned Parenthood was part of the “establishment;” Sanders later walked the remark back. 

The Planned Parenthood Votes ads steer clear of the Vermont senator to focus on Republicans. 

“If the top Republican candidates get their way, access to safe and legal abortion, gone, access to no co-pay birth control, lost, and the progress women have made, reversed, with women all over the country no longer able to turn to Planned Parenthood for care.” 

Republican candidates have largely called for cutting off funding to Planned Parenthood and want to repeal ObamaCare, which provides for birth control without a co-pay. 

“There’s so much at stake and so much at risk,” the ad states. “We need you. Caucus on Monday. Support a true champion for women’s healthcare, Hillary Clinton.”
