In case you missed it, the Democratic National Committee launched new digital ads this morning in battleground states highlighting Republicans’ plans to escalate attacks on abortion rights after their decades-long war to overturn Roe v Wade. The ads come as Republicans in some states have implemented abortion bans with no exceptions for rape or incest and federal Republican lawmakers are making clear that if they gain power, they could work to ban abortion nationally.
See some coverage of the ads nationally and in the states where they’re airing:
