Washington, D.C. – If Democrats gain complete control in Washington, they will eliminate the Senate filibuster to enshrine abortion on demand nationwide, Nancy Pelosi said in an interview on Monday.

Asked “what can President Biden and the Democrats do to protect abortion nationwide” when legislation requires 60 votes to pass the Senate, Pelosi told MSNBC anchor Katy Tur, “No it doesn’t…60 votes is the Senate now, but if we win 50 plus one in the Senate, 50 plus the vice president, we can overturn the 60-vote rule.”

“Biden-Pelosi Democrats will stop at nothing to force abortion on demand any time for any reason, in every state in America – with no exceptions even for brutal second and third trimester abortions when babies can feel pain. They will scrap every rule such as the filibuster that stands in their way and weaponize the full force of the federal government to promote their abortion agenda,” said SBA Pro-Life America President Marjorie Dannenfelser. “Democrats like Pelosi are being up front about their goals, and they are nothing if not ambitious. What they won’t tell America is that their deceptively named ‘Women’s Health Protection Act’ is far more sweeping than Roe v. Wade and would overturn parental rights, informed consent, health and safety standards, late-term abortion limits, and more – a truth the voters are only supposed to discover after it’s too late.

“Pelosi’s comments should serve as a gift to every GOP campaign. Pro-life candidates must reject the ‘ostrich strategy’ of burying one’s head in the sand on this issue. You cannot run from this fight, there is only going on offense. Candidates must drive a contrast between support for commonsense limits and the no-holds-barred extremism of the Democrats and courageously expose them as the ones truly lacking compassion. The stakes are enormous and the Democrats must be stopped from taking complete control of Washington.”

This election cycle, SBA Pro-Life America and its affiliated entities plan to spend $92 million to protect life across America. This includes reaching 10 million voters – four million directly at their doors – across the battleground states of Arizona, Georgia, Michigan, Montana, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin to educate them on key issues and win pro-life majorities in the U.S. House and Senate.
