Dems’ Extreme Agenda is Deeply Unpopular With the Majority of Americans, Especially Battleground-State Voters
Washington, D.C. – President Biden announced that he will issue an executive order today seeking to force taxpayers to fund abortion on demand until birth in Democrat-led states with no limits on abortion, including through Medicaid, in violation of the Hyde Amendment.
The action comes as the Biden administration sues the state of Idaho to invalidate its democratically-enacted pro-life laws. Also today, Senate Democrats are attempting to pass yet another radical bill that would protect abortionists who have lost their licenses due to malpractice or criminal conduct, override state-level safeguards against dangerous mail-order abortion drugs, create a litigation fund to target pro-life states, and more.
Susan B. Anthony Pro-Life America blasted the Democrats’ pro-abortion agenda in a statement:
“Biden and the Democrats make a serious error in assuming Americans nationwide agree with their radical agenda – using the full weight of the federal government to impose abortion on demand up to the moment of birth, illegally forcing taxpayers to fund it, ‘cracking down’ on nonprofits that provide life-affirming alternatives, and threatening to destroy any guardrails of democracy that stand in their way. Their pro-abortion extremism is deeply unpopular, in key battleground states and among rank-and-file Democrats and Independents,” said SBA Pro-Life America President Marjorie Dannenfelser. “Our ground team is talking with millions of voters at their homes about the stakes of the upcoming midterm elections, working tirelessly to expose pro-abortion candidates’ lies and extremism. Our fellow Americans are appalled to learn that our country allows brutal late-term abortions when unborn children have beating hearts and feel pain, along with North Korea and China, and that the Democratic Party supports this radical policy.
“Make no mistake, pro-abortion extremism hurts women and children and is a liability at the ballot box. We thank all our pro-life allies in Congress and nationwide who are standing up to the Biden agenda.”
Earlier this year Biden called for ending the Senate filibuster on the issue of abortion after the historic Dobbs decision, which restored the right of the people speaking through their elected representatives to protect unborn children and mothers.
Senate Democrats last week unveiled spending bills that would massively expand taxpayer-funded abortion. This is in addition to six Democrat-led congressional hearings pushing a radical pro-abortion agenda since the Dobbs decision, as well as multiple votes on legislation that would expand abortion until the moment of birth and block new and existing pro-life laws.
This election cycle, SBA Pro-Life America and its entities plan to spend $78 million to protect life across America. This includes reaching eight million voters across battleground states – four million directly at their doors – to take back the U.S. House and Senate.
Susan B. Anthony Pro-Life America is a network of more than one million 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.
