Six-Figure Campaign Targeting #Terrible20 Abortion Extremists in Congress Includes Digital Ads, Grassroots Phone Calls, & Three-State Press Tour During August Recess

Oro Valley, AZThe Susan B. Anthony List (SBA List) and its partner Women Speak Out PAC have launched a nationwide campaign to expose the abortion extremism of 20 vulnerable Democrats in Congress. The campaign continues today in Oro Valley with an event outside of Rep. Tom O’Halleran (AZ-01)’s office. O’Halleran and Senator Mark Kelly (D-AZ) are two of the #Terrible20 legislators who refuse to support the popular, bipartisan Hyde Amendment and similar policy riders that, for decades, have stopped taxpayer funding of abortion and saved millions of unborn American lives.

Just last week, Senator Kelly’s extremism was on display as he voted during a Senate “vote-a-rama” to force taxpayers to pay for painful, late abortions, and lethal discriminatory abortions based on a diagnosis of Down syndrome.

The activity is an expansion of SBA List’s ongoing six-figure campaign to expose abortion extremism. The group held events in North Carolina and Georgia earlier this week.

“Most Americans oppose taxpayer funding for abortion on demand, yet Mark Kelly and Tom O’Halleran have no problem ignoring their Arizona constituents to vote in lock-step with the abortion industry. If they insist on forcing taxpayers to fund abortion on demand and support barbaric, late abortions without limits, they must and will face the consequences of their extremism at the ballot box. SBA List’s ongoing campaign to expose abortion extremism in battleground states and districts includes a multi-faceted education campaign and even door to door visits from our field team,” said Mallory Quigley, SBA List vice president of communications and Women Speak Out national spokeswoman.

The #Terrible20 pro-abortion Democrats up for re-election in 2022 include:

  • Raphael Warnock (D-GA)
  • Mark Kelly (D-AZ)
  • Deborah Ross (NC-02)
  • Tom O’Halleran (AZ-01)
  • Stephanie Murphy (FL-07)
  • Lucy McBath (GA-06)
  • Carolyn Bourdeaux (GA-07)
  • Cindy Axne (IA-03)
  • Sharice Davids (KS-03)
  • Jared Golden (ME-02)
  • Elissa Slotkin (MI-08)
  • Haley Stevens (MI-11)
  • Christopher Pappas (NH-01)
  • Tim Ryan (OH-13)
  • Susan Wild (PA-07)
  • Matt Cartwright (PA-08)
  • Conor Lamb (PA-17)
