• Statement on DCCC’s Latest Attack Ad On Women’s Healthcare

    Tuesday, November 1, 2016 – Today, congressional candidate General Don Bacon released the following statement on the DCCC’s latest attack ad that completely lies about his position on women’s healthcare: 

    “Nancy Pelosi and Brad Ashford’s latest attack ad is as desperate as it is disgusting,” says General Don Bacon. “The importance of preventative care is an issue that my family and I care deeply about.  I lost my sister Beth to breast cancer when she was just 39 years old. Not only was she a wonderful sister, but she also introduced Angie and I, and was the maid of honor at our wedding.  Her loss was the most heart breaking event in my family’s life, and ten years later I still mourn her passing.  Earlier screenings and care could have saved her life and I want to prevent the tragedy that struck our family from happening to others.”
