President Joe Biden‘s re-election campaign released a brutal ad on abortion after Donald Trump said the issue should be left to the states, blasting his Republican rival for his position. 

‘Donald Trump did this,’ declares the ad, which features Amanda Zurawski, a Texas woman who sued the state after she said she almost died from a miscarriage. The state essentially banned all abortions after the Supreme Court struck down Roe v. Wade.

In the 60-second video, Zurawski and her husband Josh discussed how they had started buying things for the baby while Amanda was pregnant, including a baby book and the outfit the infant was going to wear home from the hospital.

‘Trump did this’: Biden campaign releases brutal ad with Texas woman who was denied an abortion and almost died of sepsis when she miscarried

Biden’s new ad features Amanda Zurawski, a Texas woman who sued the state after she said she almost died from a miscarriage, and her husband Josh

As the couple talks about Amanda’s pregnancy, the text on the screen reads: ‘Because Donald Trump killed Roe v. Wade, Amanda was denied standard medical care to prevent infection, an abortion.’

Eighteen weeks into her pregnancy, Zurawski’s water broke, which put her at high risk for a life-threatening infection. Her baby, named Willow, was sure to die. Willow still had a heartbeat and so doctors said that under Texas law they were unable to terminate the pregnancy.

Zurawski, who has testified before Congress about her experience, has said she only received an emergency abortion after her condition worsened and she went into septic shock

The ad notes: ‘She almost died twice. The infection caused so much damage, Amanda may never get pregnant again.’

It concludes Amanda crying in the background as her husband consules her and the text: ‘Trump did this.’

Zurawski is one of five women are suing the state of Texas for its abortion law. She attend Biden’s State of the Union address last year as a guest of first lady Jill Biden.

Biden’s re-election team released the ad after Trump released a video where he said abortion policy should be let up to the states.

‘We have abortion where everybody wanted it from a legal standpoint, the states will determine by vote or legislation or perhaps both, and whatever they decide must be the law of the land,’ Trump said in the video.

He also accused Democrats of believing in ‘executing the baby after birth’.

Previously, Trump has suggested he would support a 15-week federal-level ban on abortion.

On Monday, he noted he  was ‘strongly in favor of exceptions for rape, incest and life of the mother.’ 

The former president finally revealed his stance on the abortion issue after teasing it for months. His advisers have worried the issue will cost him votes.

Democrats are using the abortion issue as a rallying cry for the base – particularly women. It proved an effective issue for them in the 2022 midterms where Democratic congressional candidates did better than expected.

They are pushing it as the top political issue this year. 

Monday’s ad is part of a $30 million ad campaign that will air in battleground states on local broadcast and cable television, as well as on national cable, the Biden campaign said. 

The re-election team blasted Trump after the former president outlined his position. 

Biden, in a blistering statement, said Trump was ‘responsible for creating the cruelty and the chaos that has enveloped America since the Dobbs decision,’ referring to the 2022 Supreme Court ruling that overturned Roe v. Wade. 

He accused Trump of making a ‘political deal’ to appoint Supreme Court justices who would overturn Roe v. Wade in exchange for support from anti-abortion voters.

‘Trump admits as much in his statement today,’ Biden said. ‘Having created the chaos of overturning Roe, he’s trying to say, ‘Oh, never mind. Don’t punish me for that. I just want to win.’

Even some Republicans were critical of the former president, particularly the conservatives.

Republican Senator Lindsey Graham of South Carolina, a close Trump ally, said there should be a national law on abortion.

‘I respectfully disagree with President Trump’s statement that abortion is a states’ rights issue,’ he said.

He added: ‘I will continue to advocate that there should be a national minimum standard limiting abortion at fifteen weeks because the child is capable of feeling pain, with exceptions for rape, incest and life of the mother.’

Susan B. Anthony Pro-Life America’s president Marjorie Dannenfelser said she was ‘deeply disappointed’ in Trump’s refusal to endorse a federal ban on abortion.
