ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) - The mother of one of the victims of the Pulse nightclub shooting has made an ad asking how someone could vote for Donald Trump.

The digital ad was released Wednesday by the gay rights group, the Human Rights Campaign. It features Christine Leinonen, the mother of Christopher Leinonen, who was one of the 49 Pulse patrons killed during the massacre.

In the ad, Leinonen says, “We have to continue to moving forward as an inclusive society.” She goes on to say, “If you love a gay person, if you know someone who’s gay, and you truly love them, I don’t know how you could justify a vote for Donald Trump.”

She then encourages voters to pick Hillary Clinton.

The Pulse shooting was the worst mass shooting in recent U.S. history.
