“As a physician, Rep. Cassidy has a unique understanding of the value and dignity of every human life,” said Susan B. Anthony List Vice President Marilyn Musgrave. “Cassidy has a proud 100% pro-life record in the House and we cannot wait to have his pro-life leadership in the U.S. Senate. He co-sponsored and voted in favor of legislation that would protect unborn children after 5 months, the point at which they can feel excruciating pain. He’s also voted to end taxpayer funding of abortion on-demand, and has voted to end taxpayer funding of America’s largest abortion business, Planned Parenthood.”
Mitch McConnell (R-KY) has pledged to advance a vote on the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act in the next Congress. This compassionate, modest legislation to stop abortion after five months is the SBA List’s top legislative priority. The measure is supported by the majority of Americans – women in higher numbers than men.
The Susan B. Anthony List and its Political Action Committees, the SBA List Candidate Fund and Women Speak Out PAC, spent $15.25 million in the 2014 election cycle to defeat pro-abortion incumbents and elect pro-life candidates to federal and statewide office. The 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 365,000 pro-life Americans nationwide.
