Monica Wehby, a pediatric neurosurgeon who hopes to unseat Sen. Jeff Merkley, (D-Ore.) for the U.S. Senate in Oregon, has just released a new ad that will likely make you shed a tear or two.
The ad features Lexi Liebelt, a woman who, when she was 21, was told by her doctor that her pregnancy needed to be aborted due to problems with the spinal cord.
“Dr. Wehby was the first person that gave us hope,” Liebelt says. “She was the first person that said ‘Congratulations you’re having a daughter.'”
“We have a 12-year-old today because of Dr. Wehby,” Liebelt says.
In her first ad, “It’s not brain surgery,” Wehby explains that Obamacare is “devastating” for Oregon. The ad also shows Wehby reminding voters that she has called for an investigation into Cover Oregon, the state health care exchange that proved a national embarrassment.
