Another group is targeting pro-abortion Catholic politicians in this fall’s midterm elections. CatholicVote is launching a digital ad campaign urging Hispanic voters to challenge pro-abortion Catholic senators in Arizona and Nevada over their recent vote on the Women’s Health Protection Act, “The Daily Wire” reported.
The six-figure campaign zones in on Democratic Arizona Sen. Mark Kelly and Democratic Nevada Sen. Catherine Masto-Cortez over their votes on the progressive abortion legislation, which the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops called “the most radical abortion bill of all time.”
“Our campaign is designed to educate and mobilize Hispanic voters to hold key senators accountable for their radically misplaced priorities,” CatholicVote President Brian Burch said. “As these voters ask their elected officials to address skyrocketing gas prices, soaring crime and inflation, and the lingering consequences of excessive COVID mandates, senators in both Nevada and Arizona are instead pushing extreme abortion laws. The real priorities of Hispanic voters are being ignored.”
The campaign builds on polls showing that Republicans are gaining support among both black and Hispanic voters. A “Wall Street Journal” poll in early March found that Hispanic voters would back a Republican candidate for Congress over a Democrat by 9 percentage points.

Burch noted that Kelly’s and Masto-Cortez’s votes in favor of “extreme abortion” are “especially disturbing” in light of their self-professed Catholicism. “The church is clear that support for lethal violence against unborn children is incompatible with church teaching,” he said.
Both Burch and CatholicVote have been vocal in calling out high-profile Catholics such as President Joe Biden, whose push for increased access to abortion directly contradicts Catholic teaching.
“Hispanics are proud to contribute to a better nation with our work, our taxes, our faith and our values,” the Arizona ad says in Spanish, according to transcripts provided by CatholicVote. “But we need politicians who solve real problems: the rising cost of food, gasoline, rising crime and disrespect for parents in schools.”
