Planned Parenthood plans anti-Romney ad for TV
NEW YORK — Planned Parenthood is launching a TV ad campaign in three battleground states suggesting that women’s rights would suffer if Republican Mitt Romney is elected president. The political arm of the women’s health care organization has endorsed President Obama for re-election.
The group announced Wednesday that it would spend $1.4 million to air its ad in Florida, Iowa and Virginia, as well as in Washington, D.C.
The ad quotes Mr. Romney saying he would “get rid” of Planned Parenthood. When he made the comment earlier this year, aides said he was talking about eliminating federal funding.
