“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.”
