New ad claims Duncan wants to 'outlaw' abortion, targeted Planned Parenthood in AG's office

Planned Parenthood Provides Reproductive Health Services in the US. Indianapolis - July 2017. (Credit: jetcityimage)

Focus: Republican attorney general candidate Wes Duncan

Who’s paying for it: The campaign of Democratic attorney general candidate Aaron Ford

Size of buy: Six figures

When it starts: Oct. 25

Where it’s running: Reno

The gist: The latest ad from Ford’s campaign features nurse and midwife Lorraine Garcia criticizing Duncan’s stances on women’s reproductive issues, including a claim that Duncan stands with President Donald Trump and wants to outlaw abortion, citing remarks the former Assemblyman made at an awards banquet for a crisis pregnancy center that “we need to continue to fight for life at every stage.”

The ad also says Duncan “pushed an agenda targeting Planned Parenthood,” a reference to an inquiry by the Nevada Attorney General Adam Laxalt’s office — where Duncan previously worked — into women’s health clinics after a series of online videos suggested they had illegally sold tissue from aborted fetuses.
