Planned Parenthood's political action committee is launching new Web ads in Iowa for Democratic presidential front-runner Hillary ClintonHillary Rodham ClintonThe Hill's 12:30 Report Defeated GOP lawmaker won’t coordinate transition with successor: report Watchdog wants FBI's notes from Obama interview in Blagojevich probe MORE ahead of Monday’s caucuses.
Clinton has touted Planned Parenthood’s endorsement of her as she is locked in a tight race with Bernie SandersBernie SandersWeek ahead: AT&T-Time Warner merger under scrutiny This week: Government funding deadline looms Week ahead: Cures bill nears finish line MORE.
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.”
