Radical Abortion Lobby Spending $150M to Elect Extremists Who Support Abortion on Demand Until Birth
Washington, D.C. – In response to a $150 million political spending campaign announced by a trio of pro-abortion lobby groups, the national pro-life group Susan B. Anthony List (SBA List) issued the following statement:
“The abortion lobby led by Planned Parenthood is shamefully spending nine figures to elect Democrats who back late-term abortion on demand, paid for by taxpayers, until the moment of birth. Make no mistake, they are desperate to preserve their lucrative business of killing unborn children and exploiting their mothers,” said SBA List President Marjorie Dannenfelser. “The American people have overwhelmingly rejected this radical agenda, including in the Virginia governor’s race last November, yet pro-abortion Democrats are doubling down on the failed strategy of extremists like Terry McAuliffe. They do so at their own political peril. Our ground team has already visited more than 1,345,000 voters at their homes in six battleground states to expose the extremism of pro-abortion candidates and educate about the millions of lives at stake in the Dobbs case and midterm elections. We will never stop working to counter pro-abortion lies and save lives.”
In Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, a case involving a Mississippi law that limits abortion after 15 weeks, the Supreme Court will address whether all pre-viability abortion limits are unconstitutional. A decision is expected in the spring or summer of 2022. 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.
