Planned Parenthood and its pro-abortion supporters are working hard to stop Donald Trump from beating pro-abortion Hillary Clinton for the presidency. This week, the abortion business and a super PAC backing Clinton launched a half-million-dollar digital ad campaign attacking Trump in key swing states, USA Today reports.

The comic-book style ads contain the profanity initials “WTF?!” and reference past controversial comments that Trump has made, according to the report. The ads are running on Facebook, Instagram and the radio website Pandora.

The report describes the online ads:

Each ad begins with a clip of Trump talking about an issue (women, abortion, immigration, climate change, minimum wage and education) and ends with a character questioning what he just said in a word bubble. Then another character says, “Not in our America!”

Planned Parenthood Votes, LCV Victory Fund, Latino Victory Fund & EMILY’s List WOMEN VOTE! have partnered with Priorities USA Action to produce the ads.

The ad labeled “Choice,” a code word for abortion, shows a clip of Trump answering a question about whether he thinks a woman should be punished for having an abortion. A female cartoon character responds with a talk bubble, “Punishment for women?!” followed by “WTF!?!” The 16-second ad ends with the Planned Parenthood logo and the phrase, “Save America! #StopTrump.”

This isn’t the first time Planned Parenthood has gone after Trump, who says he is pro-life. Earlier this year, the abortion giant called Trump “dangerous” because he would “ban abortions.” In June, it also attacked Trump as “hateful” in a series of online ads aimed at young voters.

Recently, Trump announced a list of 11 potential Supreme Court nominees — a list pro-life and conservative groups praised for having potential judges who would be Constitutionalists.

The list of potential nominees for the seat of pro-life Supreme Court Justice Antnoin Saclia that Trump would conifer include  Steven Colloton of Iowa, Allison Eid of Colorado and Raymond Gruender of Missouri.

Also on the list are: Thomas Hardiman of Pennsylvania, Raymond Kethledge of Michigan, Joan Larsen of Michigan, Thomas Lee of Utah, William Pryor of Alabama, David Stras of Minnesota, Diane Sykes of Wisconsin and Don Willett of Texas.

“This list was compiled, first and foremost, based on constitutional principles, with input from highly respected conservatives and Republican party leadership,” Trump’s campaign said.

If Trump is the nominee, he would present a stark contrast on abortion to pro-abortion Democrat Hillary Clinton, who promised Planned Parenthood that she would try to overturn the Hyde Amendment and force taxpayers to fund abortions.

In contrast, Trump specifically promised he would sign a bill as president to de-fund Planned Parenthood. In an interview with David Brody of CBN, Trump made that promise:

David Brody: “As a President Trump, if a bill came to your desk that would defund Planned Parenthood you would support that, you would sign that?”

Donald Trump: “Yes, because as long as they do the abortion I am not for funding Planned Parenthood… As long as they’re involved with abortion, as far as I’m concerned forget it, I wouldn’t fund them regardless. I would defund Planned Parenthood because of their view and the fact of their work on abortion…. I am for defunding Planned Parenthood as long as they are involved with abortion.”

As far as Trump’s comments on Planned Parenthood funding are concerned, Trump has fairly consistently said he opposes taxpayer funding but he’s also made some remarks about the “good things” Planned Parenthood does that have alarmed pro-life voters — as if any “good thing” could make up for the fact that Planned Parenthood kills 320,000 unborn babies a year in abortions and then sells their body parts.

Trump also said he thinks the Roe v. Wade Supreme Court case that ushered in an era of 56 million abortions was “wrongly decided.” Trump said he would appoint “very good judges” who would ultimately “change it” but he also said he opposed Roe, without specifically saying it should be overturned.
