Ahead of Landmark Dobbs Decision, Out-of-Touch Democrats Cater to the Abortion Lobby
Washington, D.C. – Today ahead of a meeting between Vice President Kamala Harris and abortionists from Planned Parenthood and other abortion businesses, the national pro-life group Susan B. Anthony List (SBA List) called out the Democratic Party’s extreme pro-abortion agenda:
“Long gone is the Democratic Party’s ‘safe, legal, and rare’ position on abortion,” said SBA List President Marjorie Dannenfelser. “Led by Biden and Harris, the party now demands abortion on demand, up until the moment of birth, paid for by the taxpayer – and today is giving a national platform to abortionists to proclaim this message. Today’s White House event with the abortionists comes on the heels of the abortion lobby announcing they’ll spend $150 million on this year’s midterms.
“The good news is that the Democrats’ pro-abortion agenda is radically out of step with the American people, especially in key 2022 battleground states. SBA List’s Women Speak Out PAC has already visited over 1.5 million voters at their doorsteps across the key battlegrounds and will be pounding the pavement between now and Election Day to expose this abortion extremism.”
A recent poll of likely voters conducted by OnMessage Inc. finds that a strong majority of Americans in key battleground states reject the Democrats’ abortion agenda of abortion on demand until the moment of birth and support a 15-week limit on abortion.
Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization is a case involving a Mississippi law that limits abortion after 15 weeks. The Supreme Court will address the constitutionality of pre-viability limits. Science shows unborn children can feel pain by 15 weeks if not earlier. Public opinion polls consistently show that the strong majority of Americans reject abortion extremism.
SBA List is a network of 900,000 pro-life Americans nationwide, dedicated to ending abortion by electing national leaders and advocating for laws that save lives, with a special calling to promote pro-life women leaders.
