Moderators, Candidates Ignore Abortion during First Democratic Debate
Washington, D.C. – In response to last night’s first Democratic debate, Susan B. Anthony List president Marjorie Dannenfelser offered the following comment:
“Democrats got a free pass on their abortion extremism last night. Moderators failed to pose a single question on the candidates’ support for abortion on-demand, up until the moment of birth. Nothing on taxpayer funding of abortion. Nothing on Planned Parenthood. Nothing on late-term abortion and the GOP move to stop it. Nothing. This silence speaks. It says ‘Avoid. We are on the wrong side of the abortion debate.’”
Susan B. Anthony List and its Political Action Committees, the SBA List Candidate Fund and Women Speak Out PAC, spent $16.71 million in the 2014 election cycle to defeat pro-abortion incumbents and elect pro-life candidates to federal and statewide office. The SBA List is dedicated to pursuing policies and electing candidates who will reduce and ultimately end abortion. To that end, the SBA List emphasizes the education, promotion, mobilization, and election of pro-life women. The SBA List is a network of more than 365,000 pro-life Americans nationwide.
