In response to the GOP’s war on Planned Parenthood (including this video from Texas Senator Ted Cruz) Hillary Clinton has come out in support of the organization and its mission to provide women, men and young people with reproductive health care.

Hillary Fights Efforts to Defund Planned Parenthood

It’s no surprise that Clinton’s campaign would stand up for Planned Parenthood. Consistent with her own strategy to make women and families a key priority on her platform, Clinton positions herself as the best candidate to advocate for these organizations.

This two-minute clip concludes with Clinton’s declaration that she is “proud to stand with Planned Parenthood” and calls the #DefundPP campaign “a full-on assault on women’s health.”

What surprises some political pundits is that the campaign has started calling out GOP candidates by name only recently. Going further, she hits Scott Walker and Jeb Bush in the first 3-seconds of the ad saying, “These attacks aren’t new.”

We have seen two different approaches to the issue of women’s health: one from a political vantage point, like Hillary’s ad, and one from a comical perspective, like Amy Schumer’s birth control video.

Both videos directly appeal to progressives and liberal women but using different tactics. While Schumer’s video went viral with 3 million views in three days, Hillary’s ad has more than 31,000 views in over a week.

Although the typical political ad doesn’t usually go viral, which tactic do you think is more effective? Hearing directly from the candidate about policy or using comedy to address a serious issue? Let us know what you think in the comments below.
