SBA List Slams Taxpayer-Funded Abortion in So-Called American Rescue Plan

“Shame on Senate Democrats who exploited COVID-19 relief to expand taxpayer-funded abortion on demand, breaking with more than four decades of bipartisan consensus. The strong majority of Americans, including millions of rank-and-file Democrats, oppose forcing taxpayers to pay for abortions,” said SBA List President Marjorie Dannenfelser. “We thank Senators Daines and Lankford for their heroic efforts to fix this bill, as well as the three Senate Democrats who stood up to extremists in their party and voted with all their Republican colleagues in favor of Hyde protections, showing that life is not a partisan issue.

“Tragically, it was not enough to overcome radical pro-abortion Democrats emboldened under the Biden-Harris administration. The so-called American Rescue Plan is disastrous for unborn children and their mothers. Susan B. Anthony List will work tirelessly to educate voters so their senators are held accountable.”

SBA List to Score Senate Vote on So-Called American Rescue Plan

“Pro-abortion forces emboldened by Joe Biden and Kamala Harris are shamelessly exploiting the COVID-19 crisis to expand abortion on demand, paid for by taxpayers. By failing to include Hyde Amendment protections and forcing taxpayers to bail out the abortion industry, their so-called ‘rescue plan’ abandons some of the most vulnerable Americans – unborn children and their mothers. Their agenda will divide, rather than unite our nation as this administration promised.

“We are grateful to our pro-life Senate allies who are working hard to fix the worst anti-life aspects of this bill, with our team’s assistance. Susan B. Anthony List urges all senators to vote against any COVID-19 relief bill that expands taxpayer-funded abortion, and we will ensure that every American knows how their senator votes.”

S.D. Senate Sends Discrimination Abortion Ban to Gov. Noem’s Desk

“Down syndrome should never be a death sentence, especially in a society like ours that prides itself on diversity and inclusiveness,” said SBA List State Policy Director Sue Liebel. “While tremendous advances have been made toward full acceptance of individuals with Down syndrome, shamefully, they are on the verge of being eliminated in some parts of the world. Here in the United States, as many as 67% of unborn babies diagnosed with Down syndrome are aborted. It is time our laws caught up with basic compassion and overwhelming public opinion. We are proud of Governor Noem and South Dakota lawmakers who are leading the charge to end lethal discrimination, and we hope to see more states follow their example.”

AZ Senate Advances Landmark Pro-life Protections

“Arizona is a strongly pro-life state and we’re proud to see lawmakers acting on the will of the people to advance this bold legislation,” said SBA List State Policy Director Sue Liebel. “Across the nation, momentum is growing to humanize our laws and protect our most vulnerable children, including babies diagnosed with Down syndrome before birth who are all too frequently targeted for lethal discrimination. Among other crucial protections, this bill also stops the abortion industry from turning every post office and pharmacy in Arizona into an abortion center in the event that the Biden administration rolls back FDA safety regulations on these dangerous drugs.

Susan B. Anthony List to Score H.R. 1

“Free, fair, and transparent elections are fundamental to the ability of principled Americans to enact change. H.R. 1 would dramatically alter First Amendment protections by imposing onerous and unworkable regulatory standards on the ability of pro-life voters and the pro-life community to discuss policy issues with elected officials and the public. It would subject citizens who contribute to nonprofit organizations to harassment and intimidation by making their personal information available in a government-controlled data base, and through an expansion of the definition of ‘electioneering communications’ it would subject virtually all issue-related ads to burdensome disclaimer requirements.

“Susan B. Anthony List exists to elect pro-life lawmakers and to enact pro-life policies and laws. H.R. 1 directly targets our mission and the cause for which pro-life Americans care so deeply. Susan B. Anthony List strongly opposes and will score against H.R. 1.”

#STOPBECERRA: SBA List to Score Senate Vote on Abortion Extremist

“Xavier Becerra is a hardened pro-abortion activist unfit to lead HHS. During his confirmation hearings, Becerra refused to disavow his support for forcing taxpayers to fund abortion on demand, or his vote in favor of partial-birth abortion – a barbaric procedure during which an unborn child is partially delivered and then killed.

“We thank pro-life leaders in the Senate who have worked to expose the California attorney general’s pro-abortion extremism and urge all senators to reject his nomination. This vote will be reflected on SBA List’s National Pro-Life Scorecard and we will work tirelessly to inform Americans about how their senator votes on this important post.”
