Washington, D.C. – In response to a new video in which Tennessee governor and candidate for U.S. Senate Phil Bredesen states he is “not the least bit interested” in redirecting tax dollars away from Planned Parenthood, the nation’s largest abortion business, Susan B. Anthony List Candidate Fund released the following statement:
“The secret is out: Phil Bredesen does not support Tennessee’s pro-life values,” said SBA List Candidate Fund President Marjorie Dannenfelser. “If elected, Phil Bredesen will continue to send hundreds of millions of taxpayer dollars to Planned Parenthood, which violently ends the lives of more than 320,000 unborn children every year and faces federal investigation for its role in the grisly harvest and sale of baby body parts. Contrast this to Marsha Blackburn, who has consistently and courageously taken on the big abortion industry, working to redirect their taxpayer funding to alternatives such as the 182 community health center sites that offer comprehensive care to women and families in Tennessee and outnumber Planned Parenthood facilities 45 to one. The choice before voters could not be more clear. Bredesen is radically out of step and must be held accountable at the ballot box. That’s why SBA List Candidate Fund has proudly endorsed Marsha Blackburn and will work tirelessly to expose Bredesen’s extremism.”
Susan B. Anthony List and its partner super PAC, Women Speak Out spent more than $18 million in the 2016 election cycle, visiting more than 1.1 million homes in battleground states to defeat Hillary Clinton and maintain a pro-life Senate. SBA List is dedicated to pursuing policies and electing candidates who will reduce and ultimately end abortion. To that end, SBA List emphasizes the education, promotion, mobilization, and election of pro-life women. SBA List is a network of more than 690,000 pro-life Americans nationwide.
