In Stark Contrast to Dems, Vance Supports Commonsense Limits on Late-Term Abortion
Washington, D.C. – Susan B. Anthony Pro-Life America celebrated as J.D. Vance (R) defeated Tim Ryan (D) in Ohio’s U.S. Senate race.
During his time in the U.S. House of Representatives, Ryan co-sponsored the deceptively named “Women’s Health Protection Act,” legislation that would mandate abortion on demand until birth in all 50 states. When pressed, Ryan could not name a single limit on abortion he would support. Vance supports federal legislation to limit abortion at 15 weeks, a point when unborn children can feel pain, and called out Ryan’s pro-abortion extremism on the debate stage.
“J.D. Vance’s victory tonight is a win for unborn children and their mothers nationwide. The voters of the Buckeye State rejected Tim Ryan’s agenda of abortion on demand until birth and made it clear they want more protections for unborn children, not fewer,” said SBA Pro-Life America President Marjorie Dannenfelser. “Vance’s support for commonsense, minimum federal limits on abortion to keep New York and California from dictating brutal late-term abortions in America was an asset in this competitive race, and his win is a testament to pro-life candidates going on offense to expose the Democrats’ wildly unpopular abortion agenda. J.D. will be a strong advocate for the unborn in Washington and we look forward to working together.”
SBA Pro-Life America and its entities reached over eight million voters across battleground states – close to four million directly at their doors – to expose the Democrats’ pro-abortion extremism and win a pro-life majority in the U.S. House and Senate.
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.
