Democrats Are Making Ads Trying To Rally Around Abortion

( In response to the Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe v. Wade, the Democratic National Committee started a five-figure digital advertising campaign targeting Republicans on Wednesday.

The ad purchase will target women between the ages of 18 and 55 on Facebook and YouTube in a number of competitive states. According to the advertisement, former vice president Mike Pence, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky, and House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy of California all support a federal abortion ban.

Pence said in a statement on Friday while calling for a national abortion ban that we must not rest and cease until the sanctity of life is restored to the core of American law in every state in the land.

McCarthy stated Friday that he would support legislation codifying an abortion limit of 15 weeks. In May, McConnell indicated that a federal abortion ban would be “unlikely if Roe were overturned,” but he changed his tune on Monday.

McConnell remarked that he believes the state level will resolve the matter. The Senate would need to approve the proposal with 60 votes. In his experience, neither party has had 60 on this subject.

The DNC’s advertising campaign is the most recent attempt by Democrats to link Republicans to the Supreme Court ruling that shook the nation last week. Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wis.), the incumbent senator, was the target of a $1.5 million television ad buy by Planned Parenthood Action Fund on Tuesday in Wisconsin. Before the midterm elections, the Democratic National Committee (DNC), Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee (DSCC), and Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee launched At the same time, the DSCC also released an online video criticizing GOP Senate candidates for their positions on abortion access.

According to polling, most Americans disagree with the high court’s ruling. Fifty-two percent of respondents to a CBS News-YouGov survey on Sunday believed the move was a “step backward,” while 31 percent said it was a “step forward.”

Republicans counter that heading into November, topics like inflation and the economy won’t be the main topic of conversation. Only 8% of respondents said abortion was the most significant problem for them, according to an internal polling report published by the Republican State Leadership Committee on Wednesday. In comparison, 37% said the same about the high cost of living and inflation.
