( – A new ad campaign by President Joe Biden blames former President Donald Trump for abortion restrictions.

The ads will run on the second anniversary of the Supreme Court draft Roe v. Wade leak and are set to cost the Biden campaign upwards of seven figures, according to some reports.

In the 60-second ad, titled “Prosecute,” a Texas woman, Austin Dennard, explains how Texas’ near-total abortion ban compelled her to leave the lone-star state to get an abortion when she discovered her fetus had a fatal condition that meant it wouldn’t survive.

Dennard claims that Trump becoming President would result in “the end of a woman’s right to choose” and mean that expecting mothers who want to terminate a pregnancy would have “no place to turn.”

In the emotional plea, Dennard claims women could lose their rights in every state, “even the ones where abortion is currently legal,” suggesting that every American would be at risk.

However, in a statement, Trump’s campaign rubbished any notion that the former President would be imposing an outright ban on abortion. Instead, Karoline Leavitt, a spokeswoman for the Trump campaign, explained that the former President supported leaving legislation on abortion up to the state.

Leavitt’s remarks echo ones Trump made in a recent interview, where he explained he wouldn’t pursue a national abortion ban if he made it to the White House.

Trump was also vocal about his opposition to an Arizona Supreme Court ruling restoring a law passed in 1864, that would ban almost all abortions, stating it went too far. The law was later repealed and Arizona settled on banning abortions after 15 weeks.

In a statement on Truth Social, Trump said that abortion laws were now in the hands of the “States and the goodwill of those that represent the people,” adding that “ideally,” there would only be three exceptions: “rape, incest, and life of the mother.”
