After Dobbs, Radical Democrats Make Scorched-Earth Push to Impose Abortion on Demand Until Birth
Washington, D.C. – In response to President Biden’s call to end the Senate filibuster on the issue of abortion after the historic Dobbs decision, Susan B. Anthony Pro-Life America issued the following statement:
“Joe Biden has caved to the abortion lobby, calling for an end to the filibuster so that Democrats can pass an extreme bill forcing abortion on demand up until birth on all 50 states, even painful late-term abortions. The idea that this can be a one-time exception is absurd as this is the second time in a year the president has called for an exception. This would be the definitive end of the filibuster,” said SBA Pro-Life America President Marjorie Dannenfelser. “President Biden’s flip-flop is just the latest example of growing abortion extremism consuming the Democratic Party, which used to be governed by the ‘safe, legal, and rare’ mantra. For decades Biden supported the life-saving Hyde Amendment, and as recently as last year said gutting the filibuster would ‘throw the entire Congress into chaos.’ Now he and his congressional allies want to impose abortion on demand for any reason, paid for with tax dollars, up to the moment of birth. Time after time the Senate filibuster has stopped this deeply unpopular agenda and allowed principled pro-life voices to be heard.
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.
“In the Dobbs era the work of educating voters is more important than ever. Our ground team is going door to door in battleground states, talking to millions of voters about Biden Democrats’ extremism and the need to elect pro-life champions to the House and Senate this year,” concluded Dannenfelser.
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.
