House GOP spend­ing bill votes unleash fresh abor­tion attack from Democ­rats

A new ad is hit­ting Rep. Juan Cis­co­mani (R‑AZ) over his vote to advance an appro­pri­a­tions bill that includes a pro­vi­sion restrict­ing access to abor­tion med­ica­tion — high­light­ing the strug­gle GOP lead­ers have to pass their annu­al spend­ing bills while pro­tect­ing their most vul­ner­a­ble mem­bers from dif­fi­cult votes.
The Demo­c­ra­t­ic Con­gres­sion­al Cam­paign Com­mit­tee released an ad crit­i­ciz­ing Cis­co­mani for sup­port­ing the agri­cul­ture appro­pri­a­tions bill ear­li­er this year, which includes a pro­vi­sion that would ban a Biden admin­is­tra­tion rule allow­ing abor­tion pills to be sold through the mail and in retail phar­ma­cies. That mea­sure has come under intense scruti­ny by Democ­rats and Repub­li­cans alike, with sev­er­al GOP mem­bers sink­ing the bill when it came to the floor ear­li­er this year.

The 52-sec­ond ad seeks to paint Cis­co­mani as an “anti-abor­tion extrem­ist” who has flip-flopped on his posi­tion, point­ing to the Ari­zona Republican’s pre­vi­ous com­ments that abor­tion pol­i­cy should be left to the states com­pared to his vote to restrict the sale of mifepri­s­tone.
