“We are proud to endorse Julia Letlow in the race for her late husband’s seat. In a time of unbelievable tragedy, Julia demonstrated incredible resilience and dedication to the vision that she and her husband Luke shared, which includes protecting our nation’s most vulnerable,” said the Honorable Marilyn Musgrave, SBA List’s vice president of government affairs. “She is 100% pro-life and remembers the moment she became a mother herself as one of the most important in her life. We believe she will be a tremendous addition to the pro-life women in the historic 117th Congress and a steadfast voice for the unborn.”
“Emboldened by Joe Biden and Kamala Harris, radical House Democrats are once again capitalizing on the COVID-19 crisis to expand abortion on demand, refusing to add Hyde Amendment protections to the relief bill. In addition, their bill creates a $50 million slush fund for Planned Parenthood – which violently ends the lives of more than 354,000 unborn children a year – and changes the rules for small business funding so that the abortion giant can tap into that money as well.
“This divisive move flies in the face of the ‘unity’ this administration promised to promote. The majority of Americans, including millions of Democrats and Independents, oppose using tax dollars to fund abortion and bail out the abortion industry.
“We thank Senator Manchin for standing up to preserve the legislative filibuster, despite immense pressure from the pro-abortion radicals that run the Democratic Party. His strong stand on this issue is one the most consequential and courageous acts of his time in the U.S. Senate to protect West Virginia’s pro-life values,” said Musgrave. “Recent polling shows that West Virginia voters, like most Americans, reject the radical pro-abortion agenda of the Biden-Harris administration which includes expanding the Supreme Court, codifying Roe v. Wade, and forcing taxpayers to fund abortion at home and overseas. We stand with Senator Manchin as he sticks up for pro-life West Virginians in Washington and encourage him to stay strong.”
“We are thrilled to see Montana enact strong laws to protect unborn children and their mothers,” said Sue Liebel, SBA List’s state policy director. “With pro-life Governor Greg Gianforte at the helm, our pro-life allies in the Montana Legislature worked swiftly to advance these pro-life protections, which reflect the will of the people. Montana is now the first state to place its own restrictions on dangerous chemical abortion pills – a vital safeguard to keep women informed about the risky business of chemical abortion, even if FDA safety standards on abortion pills should be removed, as has become increasingly likely under a Biden presidency.
“Under Governor Noem, South Dakota is a national leader in protecting innocent children – born and unborn. The overwhelming majority of Americans agree: babies who survive abortions deserve the same compassion and care as any other infant, regardless of the circumstances of their birth. Astoundingly, radical Democrats in some states and in Congress refuse to support legislation to protect these vulnerable little ones from being killed or left to die.
“We are proud of Governor Noem’s strong pro-life, pro-woman leadership – a model of what pro-life governors nationwide can accomplish. We thank her and all our pro-life allies in South Dakota, especially Reps. Fred Deutsch and Trish Ladner, a member of SBA List’s National Pro-Life Women’s Caucus, who worked diligently to get this law enacted. The pro-life movement will never tire until every child is protected under the law.”
“The deceptively named ‘Equality Act’ is the latest push by House Democrats to expand taxpayer-funded abortion on demand, against the will of the people,” said SBA List President Marjorie Dannenfelser. “This Trojan horse legislation makes a mockery of equality by enshrining a ‘right’ to abortion, the greatest violation of human rights today.
“Catering to the most extreme elements of the abortion lobby, the bill’s definition of sex discrimination equates abortion with pregnancy and childbirth. If Democrats succeed in rolling back even modest pro-life protections, health care workers and institutions will be forced to participate in abortions. We urge every member of Congress to reject this assault on the unborn and conscience rights.”
