In a fresh ad attacking Republicans, an abortion rights group on Thursday unveiled three new ads in three crucial Senate races, associating the GOP to Donald Trump's opinion on women's issues, The Hill reported.

NARAL Pro-Choice America, which launched a $300,000 digital ad buy, featured Sen. Kelly Ayotte, R-N.H., Rep. Joe Heck, R-Nev. and Sen. Pat Toomey, R-Pa., in the ads wherein Trump's past comments on abortion are incorporated.

Earlier in March, Trump stirred up a hornet's nest when he told MSNBC's Chris Matthews that women who undergo abortion procedures should face criminal charges.

He later retracted saying only abortion providers should be punished.

NARAL stated that the ads will serve as a medium to convince voters, many of which already support abortion. According to the Pew Research Center, seven in 10 voters believe abortion should be made legal.

"While they may use different words than Trump, they are advocating for the exact same policies," said Sasha Bruce, NARAL's senior vice president of campaigns and strategy, according to The Hill.

"They want to ban abortion, restrict access to contraception and fight against equal pay. This is their shared agenda. For women and families it is dangerous, reckless and scary."

The battle between Democrats and Republicans is getting intense as both parties are gearing up to gain Senate majority next year.

Ayotte will have to win a tough bout against Democratic New Hampshire Gov. Maggie Hassan in a woman vs. woman fight. Toomey too will not have it easy against Katie McGinty. Heck will be up against former Nevada Attorney General Catherine Cortez Masto for Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid's seat.

Democrats need to gain four seats to win control of the Senate if Hillary Clinton wins the presidency and five seats if Trump wins. The party is defending only 10 seats while the Republicans have to preserve 24.
