Susan B. Anthony List team has reached 52,000 homes visited in statewide canvassing effort to expose Donnelly’s abortion extremism
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Pro-life activists gathered outside Senator Joe Donnelly’s Hammond office today to draw attention to Senator Donnelly’s record on abortion, which is dramatically out of step with Indiana voters. Sue Swayze Liebel, lobbyist and Indiana State Chair for Susan B. Anthony List (SBA List), as well as international pro-life speaker Jill Stanek, a former nurse, now SBA List’s National Campaign Chair addressed a crowd of more than fifty pro-life activists outside 5400 Federal Plaza in Hammond, IN.
SBA List has more than 100 pro-life canvassers in Indiana and announced today its field team has visited more than 52,000 homes to educate and mobilize voters for the 2018 midterm election.
“Senator Donnelly tells Hoosiers he opposes taxpayer funding of abortion, but in Washington he’s voted repeatedly to continue sending tax dollars to Planned Parenthood, the country’s biggest abortion business,” said Sue Swayze Liebel, SBA List’s Indiana State Chair. “His votes are dramatically out of step with our pro-life state. That’s why the SBA List field team has already visited more than 50,000 homes to talk to voters about Donnelly’s true nature. We won’t stop until he is defeated at the ballot box in November.”
“Planned Parenthood ends the lives of more than 300,000 babies each year, and wounds that many mothers,” added Jill Stanek, National Campaign Chair at SBA List. “They are under investigation for their role in the harvest and sale of baby body parts. Hoosiers deserve a Senator who will side with them, unlike Sen. Donnelly who stands with the brutal abortion lobby.”
Overall this cycle SBA List canvassers have knocked on 500,000 doors across the battleground states of Indiana, Ohio, Florida, and Missouri. The group also launched a special deployment to Illinois 3rd Congressional District this weekend to support pro-life Democrat Rep. Dan Lipinski.
Susan B. Anthony List and its partner super PAC, Women Speak Out previously 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 630,000 pro-life Americans nationwide.
