Let's Keep this Ball Rolling

A Tennessee law that bars insurance plans on the newly created public exchange from covering elective abortion was signed into law yesterday by Governor Phil Bredesen.  This makes Tennessee the second state behind Arizona to pass a law of this sort.  The law was passed in reaction to the recently passed healthcare reform bill that allows insurance plans subsidized by the government to cover elective abortion.  This is one of the many pro-life contentions with the bill.

Tennessee and Arizona are very wise to be proactive in passing this measure before the new healthcare law goes into effect in 2014.  Mississippi and Florida are awaiting their governor’s to sign similar legislation.

The vast majority of Americans don’t want their tax dollars to fund abortion.  Encourage Members of your state legislature as well as the federal legislature to follow in the footsteps of Tennessee and Arizona and prevent tax dollars from funding insurance plans that cover abortion.

Go here to find your local Right to Life chapter with guides to contacting local legislators.  Also, contact your Member of Congress here and tell him or her to support H.R. 5111 the Protect Life Act which will ensure no federal funds flow toward elective abortion in the healthcare bill.

California Pro-Life Group Endorses SBA List Candidate Carly Fiorina


Yesterday the California Pro-Life Council endorsed Carly Fiorina in the California Republican Senate primary.  This exciting news follows Susan B. Anthony List’s April 27 endorsement of Carly.

Carly will be the best candidate to defeat Barbara Boxer and we’re excited to work with CPLC to help her accomplish this win.

The Senate needs a strong pro-life woman and the California Pro-Life Council recognizes this.

From Brian Johnston, Executive Director of California Pro-Life Council:

“Carly Fiorina is clearly the only pro-life candidate who can beat both Tom Campbell and Barbara Boxer. She is 100 percent pro-life, she understands the tragedy that abortion brings into peoples’ lives and she is committed to working for policies that will restore legal consideration for the innocent and vulnerable. California Pro-Life is proud to endorse Carly Fiorina for U.S. Senate.”

Let’s all get behind Carly and elect a great pro-life woman to the United States Senate!

Radio Ads in Rep. Mollohan's District

With a week to go till the West Virginia Democratic Primary, the Susan B. Anthony List is going back up on the radio waves to remind pro-life voters that Rep. Alan Mollohan (WV-01) went against his own principles, the will of his constituents, and the unborn when he voted for pro-abortion healthcare reform in March.

SBA List President Marjorie Dannenfelser said that "In the days leading up to the healthcare reform vote, we warned all Members of Congress that a vote for the bill was a vote for federal funding of abortion.  So-called ‘pro-life’ Democrats led by Rep. Bart Stupak, including Rep. Mollohan, shrunk from their principles and cast a vote resulting in the greatest expansion of abortion since Roe v. Wade.  We promised Rep. Mollohan that we would make his re-election incredibly painful if he voted ‘yes’ on the bill—and we are following through on that promise."
