Planned Parenthood Running Romney Attack Ad



Text  



Planned Parenthood Action Fund will be airing this ad attacking Mitt Romney:

 

The New York Times (!) is questioning whether the ad plays too fast and loose with context:

 

“When Mitt Romney says, ‘Planned Parenthood, we’re going to get rid of that,’” the ad says, “Romney is saying he’ll deny women the birth control and cancer screenings they depend on.”

That statement can be misleading. Mr. Romney was answering a question about what federal funding he would target for elimination or reductions if he is elected. His campaign has said he wants to end federal funding of Planned Parenthood, not the organization itself.

There is a $1.4 million buy behind the ad, which will be shown in Florida, Iowa, Virginia, and D.C., per the Times. The Planned Parenthood Action Fund intends to spend significantly more during the course of the election.
