Senate Democrats Put Abortion Ideology Ahead of Trafficking Victims

“Democrats once again are putting abortion ideology first. The Hyde Amendment, which stops taxpayer dollars from going to fund elective abortion, has been a part of this legislation since January. Nearly 70 percent of Americans oppose taxpayer funding of abortion on-demand,” said Marjorie Dannenfelser, president of the Susan B. Anthony List.  “Minority Leader Reid is ignoring history and carelessly throwing victims of human trafficking under the bus in order to cater to the abortion industry. This is abortion politics at its worst and the most vulnerable among us – women and unborn children alike – deserve better.”

West Virginia Becomes 14th State to Enact Popular Five Month Abortion Ban

West Virginia has become the 14th state to enact a ban on late term abortion after five months – the point at which unborn children can feel pain.

“The House of Delegates vote to override Governor Tomblin’s shameful veto was the first veto override since 1987. This historic effort is emblematic of the momentum building nationwide to protect children and women in the late stages of pregnancy,” said Marjorie Dannenfelser, president of the Susan B. Anthony List.

6th Circuit: SBA List Did Not Make False Statements about Abortion Funding in Obamacare

“Moreover, given the debate prior to passage of the PPACA as to whether it includes taxpayer funding for abortion, the gist or sting of the statements appears to have at least some truth, to be substantially true, or to be subject to differing interpretations. Driehaus vocally opposed the PPACA because of his concerns about federal funding for abortions but he then voted for it anyway despite the absence of his desired language (the Stupak-Pitts Amendment) in the final version. The Executive Order adds language, but is not part of the PPACA and does not alter the statutory text. In fact, debate continues over the meaning and effect of the PPACA…For SBA List to overcome Driehaus’s defamation claim, it is enough that the statements had some truth, were substantially true, or were subject to differing interpretations. Driehaus’s own change of position demonstrates that they were.”

Gov. Scott Walker Announces Support of Popular Five-Month Abortion Limit

“Governor Walker is making his pro-life convictions concrete in his presidential platform.  His commitment to the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act in Wisconsin and nationally is the best first step for a pro-life candidate and one that is embraced by the nation. This popular legislation has been endorsed by almost every Republican hopeful for 2016. The only likely candidate who has not yet endorsed the measure is Governor Chris Christie. We encourage him to back up his strong statements at CPAC last week by taking this concrete action.

Pro-life Leaders Remember Dr. John C. Willke’s Legacy

Willkes“Jack and Barbara Wilke both had a deep and profound understanding that there were two lives in every abortion decision. Their conviction that we must  ‘love them both’ was convincing to me in my own pro-life conversion and, I believe, is the reason we are living in a new, hopeful, re-invigorated pro-life moment."

Gallup’s Abortion Poll Finds Americans Dissatisfied with Status Quo

“This latest Gallup poll echoes the 2014 midterm election results and the clear mandate given to the Republican Congress to pass the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, which would stop abortions after five months. Americans are eager to see the United States removed from the list of only seven countries to allow abortion on-demand past the point at which the child can feel excruciating pain. We urge the House Republican Leadership to move forward with a vote on this compassionate, sensible legislation so that Senator Lindsey Graham can advance the companion bill in the Senate. We will continue to work with both chambers to ensure the maximum number of votes.”
