SuperPAC ad, featuring young girl with diabetes, bashes Hasner over embryonic stem cell researchby Andrew Abramson | October 30th, 2012
The House Majority PAC, a Democratic SuperPAC, has released an anti-Adam Hasner ad slamming the Republican congressional candidate for not supporting embryonic stem cell research.
The ad features a woman saying that she will be diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease in 20 years and won’t recognize her husband or family; a young man saying he will be the victim of a car accident during a camping trip and be paralyzed for the rest of life.
Then there’s the young girl who says, “Next week my mommy and daddy and are going to find out I have diabetes.”
The future victims hold up photos of Hasner asking questions: Is he a doctor? Is he a scientist? Why did Mr. Hasner bet my life that he knows best?
“Help me,” they all say.
The ads ends with the little girl asking, “How come he gets to decide who lives and who dies? Who’s he?”
The ad does not mention Lois Frankel, Hasner’s opponent in the District 22 congressional race. The PAC made identical ads against other Republican candidates.
