SBA List Will Score Petition Signatures Supporting Born-Alive Protections

“This petition will put every member of the new Congress on record for or against infanticide. In the two years pro-abortion Democrats have spent blocking this humane legislation, dozens of babies have been born alive after failed abortions, their fate largely unknown. Most Americans want to protect them – yet under the Biden-Harris White House, radical Democrats’ agenda of abortion on demand through birth will surely result in more abortions as well as more survivors.

“We are grateful for the heroic leadership of Whip Steve Scalise, Congresswoman Ann Wagner, Congresswoman Kat Cammack, and all our Republican allies. We hope colleagues across the aisle will find the courage to stand up to Speaker Pelosi for innocent children. Those who fail will be held accountable in the 2022 midterm elections.”

Biden-Harris Admin Steps Up Assaults on SCOTUS + Taxpayer Bailouts for Abortion Industry

“From day one, President Biden and his administration have sought to make good on his campaign promises to the abortion lobby – including expanding the Supreme Court to stack it with pro-abortion justices and bailing out abortion businesses,” said SBA List President Marjorie Dannenfelser. “These assaults on innocent life and the very foundations of our country are deeply unpopular and pro-abortion Democrats pursue them at their own political peril. Voters aren’t fooled by Biden’s ‘study’ commission – the destruction of the Court’s independence is a key plank of the extreme abortion agenda, as is forcing taxpayers to bankroll the abortion industry at home and abroad.

“Biden’s funding proposal further raises the stakes for inclusion of the Hyde family of longstanding pro-life policies. Under his radical Cabinet appointees, funding increases will translate to a payday for abortion giants like Planned Parenthood and Marie Stopes International, and greater complicity in human rights abuses around the world. We strongly urge our congressional allies to reject any budget that omits these vital protections.”

House GOP Leaders Will Push for a Vote on Born-Alive Protections

“We thank Whip Steve Scalise, Congresswoman Ann Wagner, Congresswoman Kat Cammack, and all our Republican allies fighting tirelessly to end infanticide in America,” said SBA List President Marjorie Dannenfelser. “Infants who survive abortion attempts are extremely vulnerable to being killed or left to die without medical care. The overwhelming majority of Americans want to protect these defenseless babies – yet Democrats in Congress have repeatedly blocked life-saving legislation, while pushing to expand abortion on demand through birth. We’ve had enough of radical pro-abortion Democrats’ obstruction – this bill deserves a vote.”

Nat’l Pro-life Group Urges Passage of AZ Senate Bill

“SBA List proudly supports S.B. 1457, which seeks to protect unborn children with disabilities and ensures the abortion industry cannot circumvent safety regulations by sending abortion pills by mail. We are mobilizing our activists to urge GOP Senator Tyler Pace to support this effort after he cast the deciding vote against the bill yesterday. We stand strongly with state Senator Nancy Barto and the Center for Arizona Policy as they work to get this life-saving legislation to Governor Ducey’s desk.”

SBA List Praises Sen. Manchin for Standing Strong on Filibuster, Against Party Pressure

“We thank Senator Manchin for remaining firmly committed to the filibuster in the face of enormous pressure from leaders of his party,” said SBA List President Marjorie Dannenfelser. “The legislative filibuster helps protect West Virginia’s pro-life values. Eliminating it would enable pro-abortion extremists to shut out West Virginians’ voice in the Senate and impose a radical, deeply unpopular agenda – including forcing taxpayers to pay for abortions, enlarging the Supreme Court to stack it with pro-abortion justices, and launching a federal takeover of elections to override state laws that have broad bipartisan support. We continue mobilizing our grassroots activists in the Mountain State to show their gratitude for Manchin’s courageous stance and encourage him to keep standing strong.”

S. 1 Undermines Election Transparency and Security, Makes Credibility Crisis Even Worse

“S.1 intentionally targets free and fair elections by attacking First Amendment freedoms and weakening protections against voter fraud. At a time when public trust and confidence in our elections has hit an all-time low, now more than ever we need greater security, transparency, and accountability – not a Washington takeover of state elections serving the interests of corrupt politicians over the people they are supposed to put first. Voters overwhelmingly support a simple and secure voting process, common sense voter ID requirements, and strengthening voting safeguards that prevent fraud – not eliminate them. But the reality is that this bill is so bad that it is unable to pass the Senate unless the rules are changed by Democrats to force it on the American people. It’s simply that bad.”

 The Election Transparency Initiative is a partnership between American Principles Project (APP) and the national pro-life group Susan B. Anthony List (SBA List). SBA List previously scored against the House version of the bill, H.R.1. SBA List President Marjorie Dannenfelser added:

“S.1 is an existential threat to our mission to elect lawmakers who will fight for protections for unborn children and their mothers. With this bill, pro-abortion Democrats are seeking to cement their power in Washington by putting the federal government in charge of elections in all fifty states, and change the bipartisan makeup of the Federal Election Commission, opening the door to fraud with impunity. We remain vigilant in fighting against Democrats’ attempts to change the rules and destroy foundational American principles, including the right to life.”
