DCCC Releases New TV Ads in VA-07

The DCCC released two new TV ads in the race for VA-07, “Dangerous” and “Words,” highlighting Vega’s disgraceful, dangerous comments suggesting that pregnancy is less likely after rape.

Both ads play audio of Yesli Vega’s own words, where she doubts the likelihood of rape after pregnancy, saying “Because it’s not something that’s happening organically. You’re forcing it.” The ads inform viewers that Vega would support a national abortion ban, allowing states to ban abortion with no exceptions for rape, incest, or to save a woman’s life.

The ads – the first to run in VA-07 from the DCCC IE – are airing in the DC and Charlottesville media markets beginning today and are part of the committee’s previously announced investments in key battleground districts.

WATCH: “Dangerous”

 

“DANGEROUS” TRANSCRIPT:

Republican Yesli Vega’s extreme agenda will hurt Virginia women.

“Because it’s not something that’s happening organically. You’re forcing it.”

Vega would support a national abortion ban and let states ban abortion without exceptions for rape, incest, or to save a woman’s life.

Anti-survivor.

Anti-choice.

Yesli Vega must be stopped.

WATCH: “Words”
“WORDS” TRANSCRIPT:

What’s extreme?

Yesli Vega’s support for allowing states to ban abortion with no exceptions for rape or incest.

What’s dangerous?

Yesli Vega’s words.

Audience member: “I’ve actually heard that it’s, it’s harder for a woman to get pregnant if she’s been raped. Have you heard that?”

Vega: “It wouldn’t surprise me. Because it’s, it’s not something that’s happening organically. You’re forcing it.”

[repeats] “It’s not something that’s happening organically. You’re forcing it.”
