Washington, D.C. – Women Speak Out PAC, a partner of the national pro-life group Susan B. Anthony List (SBA List) today launched a $50,000 campaign to expose Rep. Ann Kuster’s (NH-02) record on abortion. SBA List Vice President and former Congresswoman Marilyn Musgrave was joined by local pro-life leaders as she announced the details at a press conference in the Legislative Office Building in Concord.
“Rep. Kuster’s attacks on her pro-life opponent Marilinda Garcia are an attempt to distract voters from her extreme record on abortion. Last year Rep. Kuster voted against compassionate legislation to stop abortion after five months – more than halfway through pregnancy. Polls show that a majority of Americans, women in higher numbers than men, support this modest legislation to protect babies after they feel the excruciating pain of abortion,” said former Congresswoman Musgrave. “She stands with the abortion lobby, not her constituents.”
The campaign includes a 60 second radio spot which starts running today on 14 Christian, news/talk, and country radio stations across the district for two weeks. A partial script follows:
Announcer: “When Ann Kuster went to Congress two years ago, you expected her to defend New Hampshire’s values. When she got there, she defended Obama’s values instead.
“Take abortion…Ann Kuster voted to use tax money to pay for abortions — even though it violates the faith and values of many New Hampshire taxpayers.
“Ann Kuster also voted to allow abortions after 5 months of pregnancy, so late that the baby experiences excruciating pain.
“The truth is, Ann Kuster supports abortion on-demand, even up to the moment of delivery. That’s beyond pro-choice. That’s extreme.”
The Susan B. Anthony List Candidate Fund previously endorsed Rep. Kuster’s opponent Marilinda Garcia in April.
“Marilinda Garcia is a rising star and we are proud to support her candidacy,” continued Musgrave. “Marilinda has proven track record in New Hampshire and we know she will continue to champion women, children, and families in Washington.”
The Susan B. Anthony List and its Political Action Committees, the SBA List Candidate Fund and Women Speak Out PAC, are 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.
