The anti-abortion group Susan B. Anthony List launched an ad campaign today targeting U.S. Rep. Ron Kind and seven other members of Congress for supporting elimination of the Hyde Amendment, which would mean tax dollars could go towards funding abortions.
The 30-second digital ad, which airs on Facebook and other streaming platforms in Kind’s district, says the La Crosse Dem “and his radical allies want to force you to pay for abortions, even painful late-term abortions.”
A spokeswoman for the group did not say how much money was spent on the campaign against Kind, but the entire campaign, including ads against the other targets, is worth “six figures.”
“Ron Kind and the liberals in Washington have an extreme abortion agenda,” the ad says. “Tell Congressman Kind: Don’t force Wisconsin taxpayers to pay for abortions.”
