A new ad released by the No on 6 campaign today depicts a very familiar looking politician barging in on a woman’s doctor visit. Watch here.
“Have you noticed how politicians keep trying to play doctor, trying to get their political agenda into your doctor’s office?” the ad begins. As the narration illustrates the dangers of Amendment 6, the Rick Scott look-a-like wrestles a clipboard from the doctor and refuses to leave the exam room.
“There are few things more personal than medical decisions – especially during a health crisis. The last thing any doctor wants – or any patient needs – is to have politicians in the middle of those personal medical decisions,” said Dr. Nicole Fanarjian. “Amendment 6 will throw open the doors to doctors’ exam rooms – exposing patients to the judgment of politicians when what they really need is the professional care of their physicians.”
The Vote No on 6 campaign recently released an ad featuring women’s healthcare activist Sandra Fluke and has purchased airtime for a significant television ad campaign. And doctors across the state are speaking out against the dangers of Amendment 6.
“Even a perfectly healthy woman can embark on a pregnancy and then encounter medical problems,” said Dr. Luci Belnick. “There is no place for government officials, whatever their ideology or political agenda, to intrude themselves into these sensitive and deeply personal medical conversations. This is why I oppose Amendment 6.”
