Washington, D.C. – Tonight the national pro-life group Susan B. Anthony List (SBA List) released the following comment:
“Two years ago Susan B. Anthony List identified Florida, North Carolina, and Ohio as battleground states critical to electing a pro-life president and maintaining a pro-life majority in the U.S. Senate. Tonight that decision was validated by the victory of Donald Trump and all of our pro-life Senate candidates. In addition, we are confident that our investment in Missouri will lead to another victory, solidifying a pro-life Senate,” said SBA List President Marjorie Dannenfelser.
“Not only did we work to turn out inconsistent pro-life voters, we identified and educated persuadable Democrats, including Hispanics, about Hillary Clinton’s support for forcing taxpayers to fund late-term abortion up until the moment of birth. Pro-life voters paved the way for tonight’s victories.”
Leading up to Election Day, SBA List reached 1.6 million pro-life voters, including 1.1 million voters contacted directly at their homes in the battleground states of Florida, North Carolina, Ohio, and Missouri.
Susan B. Anthony List and its connected super PAC, Women Speak Out so far have spent more than $18 million in the 2016 election cycle, knocking on more than one 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 465,000 pro-life Americans nationwide.
