Additional SCOTUS Efforts Come as Pro-life Groups Enter Final Stages of Campaign to Re-elect Pro-life Senators & President Trump in Battleground States
Washington, D.C. – Today Susan B. Anthony List (SBA List) and American Values Action launched a digital ad campaign in support of Judge Amy Coney Barrett. The ad buy will target persuadable voters in battleground states to build upon existing strong support to #ConfirmAmy ahead of Election Day.
“American Values Action is proud to partner with SBA List to support the confirmation of Judge Amy Coney Barrett to the Supreme Court. Judge Barrett is a supremely qualified individual, with tremendous integrity, and unparalleled intellect and command of the law,” said Gary L. Bauer, President of American Values Action. “As a devoted mother of seven, Judge Barrett will undoubtedly bring a unique perspective to the high court. I am confident that Justice Amy Coney Barrett will be a lasting legacy of the Trump presidency, inspiring a new generation of pro-life women, and serving as a role model for young girls all across America.”
The ad buy represents an expansion of Susan B. Anthony List’s overall $52 million budget and campaign to reach eight million voters ahead of Election Day through targeted voter contact mail, phone calls, texts, and door to door canvassing.
Last week, SBA List and its partner, Women Speak Out PAC, announced additional independent expenditure campaigns for Sens. Lindsey Graham and Joni Ernst as they lead the Senate Judiciary Committee in the confirmation process.
Following Judge Barrett’s nomination, SBA List and members of the Pro-life Court Coalition held a five-state tour of key battlegrounds rallying pro-life activists around Judge Barrett’s confirmation and showcasing grassroots support for President Trump and Senators supporting Barrett’s nomination.
“While pro-abortion Democratic senators tried to avoid overtly attacking Judge Barrett’s faith, they could help but repeatedly fear-monger on the issue of abortion – even though it is politically unwise for them to do so,” said Mallory Quigley, spokeswoman for Susan B. Anthony List and Women Speak Out PAC. “Like our pro-life heroes in the Senate, including Sens. Lindsey Graham, Joni Ernst, Thom Tillis, and more, the SBA List team is on offense to expose the contrast that exists between the two sides on this issue.
“Not only is the Biden-Harris ticket the most pro-abortion ticket in history, the pair have refused to be transparent on the issue of packing the court with activist pro-abortion judges, with Biden going so far as to say that Americans will find out where he stands on this issue on the day after the election. Life is on the line this election and we will do everything in our power to ensure pro-life candidates triumph.”
SBA List is tracking the extremism of the Biden-Harris ticket at LifeOnTheBallot.com.
SBA List is a network of 900,000 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.
