PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) - Oregon House Democrats have removed an abortion-related Facebook ad that Republicans have called false and misleading.

The Oregonian/OregonLive reports (https://bit.ly/2ekysU2 ) the ad claimed House Republican candidate, Juanita Lint, “supports punishing women who have an abortion - even in cases of rape or incest.” The House Democratic campaign wing, Future PAC, said in a Wednesday statement was incorrect and that it regrets the publication.

The ad was removed after Lint, a candidate for House District 29, sent Future PAC a cease-and-desist letter.

Lint says she didn’t know where the group got the idea for the ad and says she’s “a women’s right to life candidate.”

Oregon House Republicans’ campaign arm issued a response accusing Democrats of “lying about Republican candidates” and said the ad was intended “to serve a political purpose.”
