WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today the Susan B. Anthony List Candidate Fund, a national pro-life political action committee, announced its endorsement of U.S. Representative Steve Pearce for New Mexico’s 2nd congressional district.
“Congressman Pearce is a tireless defender of women and children from the abortion industry and we are proud to endorse his re-election bid,” said SBA List Candidate Fund President Marjorie Dannenfelser. “Most recently, Congressman Pearce has voted to end taxpayer funding of abortion and voted to limit abortions after 5 months, or more than halfway through pregnancy. His proud pro-life position stands in stark contrast to that of his opponent, Democrat Roxanne Lara. Lara is backed by EMILY’s List, an extreme organization that advocates for taxpayer-funded abortion on demand, for any reason, up to the moment of birth – even gruesome late abortions.”
In 2008, the Susan B. Anthony List backed Pearce in his bid for U.S. Senate, bundling nearly $100,000 in contributions ahead of his competitive primary. During his time in Congress, he has earned a 100% pro-life voting record.
The Susan B. Anthony List and its affiliated Political Action Committees, the SBA List Candidate Fund and Women Speak Out PAC, are 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 at all levels of government. The SBA List is a network of more than 365,000 pro-life Americans nationwide.
