Six-Figure Campaign Targeting #Terrible20 Abortion Extremists in Congress Includes Digital Ads, Grassroots Phone Calls, & Three-State Press Tour During August Recess
Raleigh, N.C. – The Susan B. Anthony List (SBA List) and its partner Women Speak Out PAC have launched a nationwide campaign to expose the abortion extremism of 20 vulnerable Democrats in Congress. The campaign begins today in Raleigh with an event outside of Rep. Deborah Ross (NC-02’s office. Ross is one of the #Terrible20 legislators who refuses to support the popular, bipartisan Hyde Amendment and similar policy riders that, for decades, have stopped taxpayer funding of abortion and saved millions of unborn American lives. The activity is an expansion of SBA List’s ongoing six-figure campaign to expose abortion extremism. The group will continue onto stops in Georgia and Arizona later this week.
WHAT: Launch of Expose the #Terrible20: Deborah Ross is Too Extreme for North Carolina
Honorable Marilyn Musgrave, SBA List VP of Government Affairs
State Representative Erin Pare (NC-37)
Local pro-life leaders & activists
WHEN: Tuesday, August 17 at 2PM
WHERE: Outside of Rep. Deborah Ross’ District Office (NC-02): 300 Fayetteville Street, Raleigh, NC 27602
“Most Americans oppose taxpayer funding for abortion on demand, yet Deborah Ross has no problem ignoring her North Carolina constituents to vote in lock-step with the abortion industry. If she insists on forcing taxpayers to fund abortion on demand and support barbaric, late abortions without limits, she must and will face the consequences of her extremism at the ballot box. SBA List’s ongoing campaign to expose abortion extremism in battleground states and districts includes a multi-faceted education campaign and even door to door visits from our field team,” said Mallory Quigley, SBA List vice president of communications and Women Speak Out national spokeswoman.
The #Terrible20 pro-abortion Democrats up for re-election in 2022 include:
- Raphael Warnock (D-GA)
- Mark Kelly (D-AZ)
- Deborah Ross (NC-02)
- Tom O’Halleran (AZ-01)
- Stephanie Murphy (FL-07)
- Lucy McBath (GA-06)
