Michigan: Exposing Rep. Bart Stupak’s Broken Promise

“Promised”—On April 6, 2010, the SBA List launched a $150,000 radio ad campaign in the districts of Reps. Steve Driehaus (OH-1), Kathy Dahlkemper (PA-3), Brad Ellsworth (IN-9) , Alan Mollohan (WV-1), and Bart Stupak (MI-1) to inform voters that their ‘Yes’ vote on healthcare reform forces taxpayers to pay for abortion:

“Leading up to the fateful vote on healthcare reform, the Susan B. Anthony List was working tirelessly to build up grassroots support and encouragement for self-labeled ‘pro-life’ Democrats, including Rep. Stupak,” said Marjorie Dannenfelser, President of Susan B. Anthony List.  “Since these Democrats instead traded their legislative power to prevent taxpayer funding of abortion for an Executive Order that did nothing to protect the status quo and address the fundamental taxpayer abortion funding problem in the bill, we have had to change course.  Now, with severe disappointment, we go back to their districts to tell voters that their representative ushered in the greatest expansion of abortion since Roe v. Wade.  We will make sure that their constituents understand the enormous gravity of this pro-abortion vote.”
