Nat’l Pro-life Group Rallies Voters to Elect Pro-life Republican Ticket, Defeat Extreme Pro-abortion Democrats
Washington, D.C. — Today the national pro-life group Susan B. Anthony List (SBA List) announced it has reached more than 171,000 Virginians to support Ed Gillespie and John Adams in the election for Governor and Attorney General and defeat Planned Parenthood-backed Democrats Ralph Northam and Mark Herring.
SBA List’s GOTV campaign included nearly 73,000 calls to voters and two hard-hitting digital ads that have reached more than 171,000 Virginians, receiving 1.6 million impressions and more than 430,000 views. SBA List’s digital ad exposing Attorney General Mark Herring’s pro-abortion record was viewed more than 283,600 times on Twitter before being censored by the social media platform.
“In the weeks before Election Day, more than 171,000 Virginians have seen SBA List’s hard-hitting digital ads exposing the pro-abortion record of the Democratic candidates,” said SBA List President Marjorie Dannenfelser. “Ralph Northam and Mark Herring are extremists who support taxpayer-funded abortion on-demand through the moment of birth. That’s why America’s largest abortion business, Planned Parenthood, promised to spend three million dollars to get them elected.
“Virginia needs a change in leadership. For far too long, popular, lifesaving policies like the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, which would stop cruel late-term abortions more than halfway through pregnancy, have been stymied in Richmond. Unborn children and their mothers deserve to be protected in the Commonwealth. It is crucial in this close race for Virginians to get out to the polls and support Ed Gillespie and John Adams.”
A Rasmussen poll released Friday, November 3 found Gillespie and Northam tied with 45 percent support.
Susan B. Anthony List and its partner super PAC, Women Speak Out spent more than $18 million in the 2016 election cycle, knocking on more than 1.1 million doors 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, the SBA List emphasizes the education, promotion, mobilization, and election of pro-life women. The SBA List is a network of more than 600,000 pro-life Americans nationwide.
