Susan B. Anthony List launches statewide canvassing efforts to expose McCaskill’s abortion extremism
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Local and national pro-life activists will hold press conferences outside the offices of Sen. McCaskill on Wednesday to draw attention to the Senator’s extreme views on abortion which are dramatically out of step with Missouri voters.
The group will be led by international pro-life speaker Jill Stanek, a former nurse, now National Campaign Chair of the pro-life Susan B. Anthony List (SBA List), and Sue Swayze Liebel, Director of SBA List’s National Pro-life Caucus.
SBA List’s Missouri field team, which previously knocked on more than 45,000 doors in 2016, has already begun educating and mobilizing voters for the 2018 midterm election. SBA List canvassers previously knocked on more than 1.1 million doors in the 2016 election cycle.
Stanek and Swayze Liebel will be joined by local pro-life leaders on Wednesday, November 15:
Kansas City – 10:00 AM
4141 Pennsylvania Ave., Ste. 101
Kansas City, MO 64111
Springfield – 3:00 PM
324 Park Central West, Ste. 101
Springfield, MO 65806
“When it comes to abortion, Senator McCaskill could not be more out of step with her pro-life constituents. McCaskill has voted repeatedly to continue sending tax dollars to Planned Parenthood, the country’s biggest abortion business. She even voted against a compassionate popular measure to stop abortion after five months, a point by which unborn babies can feel pain,” said Stanek, as a nurse, witnessed late term babies being born alive during abortion procedures and then left to die. “That’s extreme.”
“Missouri voters have elected some of the most pro-life politicians in the nation, as evidenced by Gov. Greitens’ administration and the pro-life state legislature. It’s time the folks representing Missourians in Washington were equally pro-life to the folks back home,” said Sue Swayze Liebel, Director of the SBA List National Pro-life Women’s Caucus. “That’s why the SBA List field team has already begun knocking on doors and talking to voters about McCaskill’s extreme abortion record.”
A poll of Missouri voters on Election Day 2016 and released by SBA List this year found that:
- 54 percent of Missouri voters oppose giving taxpayer dollars to Planned Parenthood, America’s largest abortion provider, instead of comprehensive healthcare providers.
- 57 percent of Missouri voters said they would be less likely to vote for Senator McCaskill if they learned she voted to give taxpayer dollars to Planned Parenthood instead of comprehensive healthcare providers
Susan B. Anthony List and its partner super PAC, Women Speak Out spent more than $18 million in the 2016 election cycle, knocking on more than 1.1 million doors 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, the SBA List emphasizes the education, promotion, mobilization, and election of pro-life women. The SBA List is a network of more than 600,000 pro-life Americans nationwide.
