Biden-Harris attacks Trump's reproductive rights record with new TV ad

Trump criticized for proposing immigrant 'gladiator' championship


Today marks the two-year anniversary of the Dobbs decision, and the Biden-Harris 2024 campaign has launched a new television advertisement to coincide with the start of debate week. The ad, titled "Criminal Actions," directly addresses former President Donald Trump's pride in the Supreme Court ruling that has deeply impacted reproductive rights in America.

The 30-second spot features Kaitlyn Joshua, a woman from Louisiana who shares her harrowing experience of being denied essential medical care during a miscarriage. Joshua recounts how she was turned away from two emergency rooms due to doctors fearing prosecution under stringent abortion laws enabled by the Dobbs decision championed by Trump.

In the ad, Joshua highlights the disparity between Trump's avoidance of accountability for his actions and his staunch support for penalizing women who seek abortions. This campaign initiative coincides with over 50 events nationwide aimed at raising awareness about the implications of the Dobbs ruling.

Additionally, Biden-Harris 2024 will unveil a series of digital advertisements featuring testimonials from women like Kaitlyn Joshua, Kaitlyn Kash, and Lauren Miller, all of whom have directly experienced the profound effects of the Dobbs decision on their lives.

The timing of these advertisements is strategic, coming just days before the first presidential debate, where the Biden-Harris campaign seeks to underscore the clear contrast between President Biden's commitment to safeguarding Roe v. Wade and Trump's advocacy for its overturn.

During his 2016 presidential campaign, Trump pledged to appoint justices who would challenge Roe v. Wade, foreseeing its potential overturning under his administration. Following the confirmation of conservative justices to the Supreme Court, Trump openly celebrated the Dobbs decision as a monumental victory, despite its divisive consequences.

Trump's controversial proposals extended beyond judicial appointments. Recently, he admitted to proposing the creation of an immigrant "gladiator" championship to Ultimate Fighting Championship president Dana White.

Under Trump's tenure, 21 states have implemented restrictive abortion laws, many devoid of exceptions for circumstances such as rape or incest. These laws, which Trump has lauded as "a beautiful thing to watch," currently affect a significant portion of women of reproductive age across the country.

The new television ad from Biden-Harris 2024 forms part of a $50 million advertising blitz planned for June. It will air on general market television and Connected TV platforms across battleground states and national cable networks.

Campaign Manager Julie Chavez Rodriguez issued a statement emphasizing the profound impact of Trump's judicial appointments on women's reproductive rights. She warned that reelecting Trump could lead to further restrictions on abortion, contraception access, and reproductive health services, underscoring Biden and Harris's commitment to restoring Roe v. Wade protections.

In a concluding personal message, Kaitlyn Joshua reaffirmed her support for President Biden, citing his dedication to women's healthcare decisions and contrasting it with Trump's record.

President Biden concludes the advertisement with a brief endorsement, stating, "I'm Joe Biden, and I approve this message."
