Planned Parenthood is going all out in support of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

The women’s health and abortion provider launched a series of ads Thursday — costing more than $1 million — in support of Clinton, Politico reports. The ads will play in Super Tuesday states Texas and Virginia, which host their primaries March 1. Ads will also play in Michigan, which hosts its primary March 8.

“When they said our health care wasn’t important, when they tried to deny us cancer screenings, when they talked about our personal health decisions in ways meant to shame us, she spoke up,” one ad says about Clinton. “She was our champion.”

“Care, it’s what’s most important,” another ad says before touting Clinton’s defense of Planned Parenthood. “We’re with her because she’s with us.”

WATCH: 

Planned Parenthood announced its endorsement of Clinton in January. The endorsement was the first time the organization had ever picked a candidate in the primary stage.

“Hillary Clinton holds the strongest record on reproductive rights of all presidential contenders in not just this election, but in American history,” Planned Parenthood Action Fund said in a statement. “She doesn’t just support women’s health — she has been a proactive leader on expanding access to women’s health care.”

The Planned Parenthood ad campaign comes after ten states have defunded Planned Parenthood. Republicans in those states cited a series of videos released by the Center for Medical Progress that showed Planned Parenthood officials exchanging fetal body parts for money.
