Planned Parenthood’s political unit announced a $3.2 million ad buy on Monday – targeting GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney on abortion in Virginia and Ohio.

The move is part of the Planned Parenthood Votes largest political campaign ever, The Hill reports. The group has so far invested $1.4 million on ads in Iowa, Florida and Virginia.

In the new 30-second spot, a narrator says that Romney would “turn back the clock for women,” The Hill reports. The ad began airing on Monday in Virginia.

Romney has said that the U.S. Supreme Court should overturn Roe v. Wade, the 1973 decision that established the right to abortion, and that he would “get rid of” public funding for Planned Parenthood if elected president.

“Today, millions of women rely on Planned Parenthood health centers for basic healthcare, including lifesaving cancer screenings,” the narrator says. “And millions more know we should be making our personal medical decisions, not Mitt Romney.”

In 2011, Planned Parenthood clinics in Virginia provided 4,117 Pap smears, 635 of which were potentially dangerous and required further diagnosis or treatment, the group said.

“It is these preventive services that would be cut under the Romney-Ryan administration,” Planned Parenthood Votes, which supports President Barack Obama, said in a statement reported by The Hill.

In a response to The Hill, Romney spokeswoman Amanda Henneberg called the ad buy “another misleading ad by the President’s allies in an attempt to cover up for four years of failure. Dishonest political attacks will not change the fact that President Obama’s policies have not helped women start businesses, increase take-home pay or ensure that their children can afford to go to college and get a job.

“Mitt Romney has a plan to grow the economy and provide more opportunities for women across the country.”
