Democrats have been going after Republicans throughout the 2012 election cycle for attempts by certain party members to defund Planned Parenthood and limit access to contraception. On Tuesday, the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee used a slightly different tactic, featuring only men to to criticize Rep. Frank Guinta (R-N.H.) on his record on women's rights.

The new DCCC ad features six men who say they have a "problem" with Guinta for his record on women's reproductive rights. The script of the ad reads:

MAN #1: I've got a problem with Frank Guinta.

MAN #2: Frank Guinta wants to put the government in charge of women's medical decisions.

MAN #3: Frank Guinta would let the government decide, not women and their doctors.

MAN #4: Not women and their doctors.

MAN #5: Frank Guinta would even limit access to birth control.

MAN #6: Even limit access to birth control.

MAN #5: Yes, I'm a man.

MAN #2: I'm a man.

MAN #1: I'm a man.

MAN #3: But I have a problem with Frank Guinta.

MAN #2: Because it doesn't matter why Frank Guinta wants to put the government in charge.

MAN #5: It's not okay in New Hampshire.

Watch:



Guinta received a score of 0 percent from the reproductive rights group NARAL Pro-Choice America in its 2011 Congressional Record on Choice.

Guinta is running against Carol Shea-Porter in New Hampshire's 1st Congressional District, in a race that the DCCC has put high on its list of targeted seats.

Public polling has shown the former Democratic congresswoman pulling ahead of Guinta, although Republicans say they remain confident that Guinta can still win.

Guinta's office did not return a request to comment.
