Washington, D.C. – Today the national pro-life group Susan B. Anthony List (SBA List) announced its endorsement of Congressman David Young for re-election in Iowa’s 3rd Congressional District.
“Susan B. Anthony List is pleased to endorse Representative David Young, a steadfast pro-life ally in Congress,” said former congresswoman Marilyn Musgrave, SBA List’s Vice President of Government Affairs. “Rep. Young brings to Congress a tireless work ethic and firm commitment to Iowa’s values. He has a 100 percent pro-life record and has co-sponsored legislation to stop late-term abortions after five months of pregnancy, redirect tax dollars away from abortion businesses, and protect the constitutional rights of pro-life health care workers. His opponent Cindy Axne is an extremist backed by the radical pro-abortion group EMILY’s List. Axne is dramatically out of step with constituents, while Rep. Young fights for Iowa women, children, and taxpayers. We encourage pro-life voters to support Rep. Young and look forward to seeing him re-elected.”
Rep. Young has represented the 3rd District in Congress since 2015. From 2006 to 2013 he served as chief of staff to Senator Chuck Grassley. Young is a co-sponsor of the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, the Title X Abortion Provider Prohibition Act, and the Conscience Protection Act. A sixth-generation Iowan, he lives in Van Meter.
Susan B. Anthony List and its partner super PAC, Women Speak Out spent more than $18 million in the 2016 election cycle, visiting more than 1.1 million homes in battleground states to defeat Hillary Clinton and maintain a pro-life Senate. SBA List is dedicated to pursuing policies and electing candidates who will reduce and ultimately end abortion. To that end, SBA List emphasizes the education, promotion, mobilization, and election of pro-life women. SBA List is a network of more than 630,000 pro-life Americans nationwide.
