Pro-life Group Launches Campaign to Defeat Abortion Radicals and Protect the Pro-life Majority in the VA Legislature
Washington, D.C. – Today the national pro-life group Susan B. Anthony List (SBA List) announced a six-figure campaign to defeat abortion extremists in the upcoming Virginia elections this fall.
The announcement of the campaign follows a new video showing Virginia Delegate Kathy Tran (D-42) explaining how her bill, H.B. 2491, would permit abortion through the moment of birth, even when the mother shows signs of being in labor. Tran represents parts of northern Virginia including Lorton, Springfield, Fairfax, and Burke.
“Following on the heels of New York’s radical expansion of abortion on demand, Delegate Tran’s bill reveals with alarming clarity what the modern Democratic Party stands for and their agenda for our nation – abortion on demand, up until the moment of delivery and even beyond. This position is irreconcilable with the beliefs, values, and desires of the overwhelming majority of Americans,” said SBA List President Marjorie Dannenfelser.
“SBA List is ready to do battle in Virginia and other key states to expose and defeat abortion extremists. To echo the words of the famous abolitionist leader William Wilberforce, we can never again say we did not know.”
H.B. 2491 would repeal limits on third trimester abortions, allow abortionists to self-certify the necessity of late-term procedures, eliminate informed consent requirements, repeal health and safety standards for abortion facilities, permit late-term abortions to be performed in outpatient facilities, remove ultrasound requirements, and eliminate Virginia’s 24-hour waiting period.
SBA List is a network of more than 700,000 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.
