The 30-second ad takes issue with Pennsylvania’s Abortion Control Act, with Mango saying it is not doing its job.
“For the over 30,000 innocent unborn children aborted every year, our Commonwealth’s Abortion Control Act is not doing its job. The loss of human life, particularly the destruction of an innocent unborn baby, is a tragedy. Any politician who would defend the existing law as ‘doing its job’ is belittling the dignity of those innocent children and clearly will not fight for a Culture of Life,” Mango said.
Mango’s campaign cites a 2014 interview Wagner did with the York Dispatch where he discussed the law.
“He’s not a religious person, and social issues aren’t most important to him, he said. While pro-life, he thinks the state’s Abortion Control Act is doing its job and he has no desire to change the law, he said,” the Dispatch wrote.
Wagner’s campaign responded wdescribing Mango as “Lyin’ Paul” and defending Wagner’s pro-life credentials.
“This disgusting ad is exactly why Scott refers to his opponent as Lyin’ Paul. Paul Mango has lied about Scott’s 100 percent pro-life record so many times that the Pennsylvania Pro-Life Federation had to step in and correct him. Scott obviously does not think that the Abortion Control Act is doing its job, which is why he was a cosponsor of Senate Bill 3. While Paul Mango has spent his entire life sitting out critical elections that have had direct impacts on the pro-life cause, Scott Wagner has a consistent record of standing up for the dignity of the unborn,” Wagner’s campaign spokesman Andrew Romeo said.
