Anthony D’Esposito is a dangerous party hack who will follow along with extreme Republicans who want to ban abortion nationwide, including in New York. Laura Gillen is a mother who faced pregnancy complications and will protect the right to choose.

Summary

Voters across the district, especially women and voters of color, need to see a cable TV and OTT program that says:

  • Laura Gillen is a mother of four and a woman who has had complicated pregnancies and believes that it is critical that women and their doctors, not politicians or the government, get to decide what is right for them. In Congress she will protect the right to choose.
  • Anthony D’Esposito is backed by Washington Republicans who will outlaw a woman’s right to choose nationwide – criminalize it – eliminating the right to choose for New Yorkers. His supporters want to ban abortion with no exceptions for rape, incest, or when the mother’s life is at risk, and would restrict access to birth control.

 

Voters, especially women and voters of color, need to see a digital program, especially on platforms like YouTube, starting 7 weeks before Election Day that says:

  • Laura Gillen is a mother of four and a woman who has had complicated pregnancies and believes that it is critical that women and their doctors, not politicians or the government, get to decide what is right for them. In Congress she will protect the right to choose.
  • Anthony D’Esposito is backed by Washington Republicans who will outlaw a woman’s right to choose nationwide – criminalize it – eliminating the right to choose for New Yorkers. His supporters want to ban abortion with no exceptions for rape, incest, or when the mother’s life is at risk, and would restrict access to birth control.

 

Black voters need to hear a radio program that says: 

  • As Town Supervisor, Laura Gillen rooted out corruption and waste and fought to deliver services for people.  In Congress, she’ll fight national Republican extremists who want to pass a national ban on all abortions without exceptions –  and even birth control.  She’ll stand up to the gun lobby and fight to pass a ban on assault weapons and fund public safety on Long Island.
  • Anthony D’Esposito’s party would pass a national abortion ban without exceptions for rape or incest, and even try to ban birth control. He’s backed by Donald Trump supporters who tried to overturn the 2020 election. If D’Esposito and Republicans take over Congress, they could vote to overturn election results they disagree with.
