Two days after Blake Masters won the Republican nomination for U.S. Senate, Democrats are launching an ad campaign about his “extreme” position on abortion.
“Three years ago, I had an ectopic pregnancy, and if I didn’t make it into the OR within a couple minutes, I was going to bleed out and die,” a woman named Brianna says in the ad by the Senate Majority PAC while recalling a life-saving abortion she received.
Masters, who advocated for abortion rights while in college, has called for a nationwide ban on abortion. He has taken a hard-line stance on reproductive rights, calling for a federal “personhood” law for fetuses and falsely claiming his Democratic opponent, Mark Kelly, supported abortion “up until the moment of birth.”
Masters has also called abortion a “sacrificial ritual” to the left and has referred to abortion as a “genocide.” He has also campaigned on overturning the constitutional right for women to access birth control.
