New Andy Kim TV ad slams Healey on support for Dobbs decision

Democratic congressman uses a U.S. Navy veteran to narrate new ad on abortion issue

Rep. Andy Kim (D-Moorestown) uses his third television ad of his re-election campaign to hammer Republican Bob Healey for saying the U.S. Supreme Court “made the right call” in overturning Roe v. Wade.

In “Fortunate,” a U.S. Navy veteran and stroke victim, Jenniffer Hernandez, appears on camera and narrates an ad that admonishes Healey for opposing New Jersey’s decision to codify legalized abortion into state law.

Script: “(Jennifer Hernandez) I’ve had health problems, including a stroke, but I’m fortunate.  For family, my husband’s job, for the rights and freedoms we both fought to defend.  But Bob Healey would let politicians ban a woman’s freedom to choose.  He said that it’s ‘unfortunate’ that New Jersey protects abortion access.  Mr. Healey, I say it’s fortunate I have a Congressman that protects my freedom.  (Andy Kim)  I’m Andy Kim and I approved this message.”

“New Jersey has unfortunately enshrined abortion into the constitution,” Healey said in a New Jersey Globe/Save Jersey 3rd District Congressional Debate held during the Republican primary.  “Certainly, when I get to Congress, I will use the bully pulpit that I will have on the federal side to speak about that issue.”

The Kim campaign aid that Healey’s “extreme agenda” hurts women and families.
