“The pro-abortion extremists now controlling Washington want to eliminate the legislative filibuster so they can force taxpayer-funded abortions and expand the size of the Supreme Court, filling it with pro-abortion justices,” said SBA List President Marjorie Dannenfelser. “Senator Joe Manchin, who represents the overwhelmingly pro-life state of West Virginia, has been the voice of reason in his party, urging preservation of the filibuster. We thank him for his leadership and are mobilizing in West Virginia to ensure his constituents can thank him and encourage him to stand strong for their values.”
While we defend our federal gains and work diligently to win back the House and Senate, pro-life advocates should go on offense in the states. The “off year” between congressional elections is an ideal time to advance bold pro-life legislation. Work has already begun, for example, in Florida where SBA List is working closely with local allies to pass the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act and stop more than 900 late-term abortions in that state each year.
Chuck Donovan: If President Biden is serious about unity, he should (once again) support the Hyde Amendment
The wounds of this not-quite-past election are still sharp, and our divisions are not merely the results of the passions of ego and ambition. So how might Joe Biden act to foster healing in the land? An obvious answer would be to return to his previous, lifelong stance against compelling the American people to finance abortions.
“Pro-abortion majorities in both the House and Senate are eager to work with the Biden-Harris administration to check off the abortion industry’s wish list. SBA List’s scorecard will track each vote and legislative action in support of abortion on-demand to ensure constituents know just how extreme the anti-life agenda is,” said Marilyn Musgrave, SBA List vice president of government affairs. “Our National Pro-life Scorecard is also a powerful tool to empower pro-life leaders and ensure they receive due thanks and support for standing up for the unborn and their mothers.”
In the latest episode of EWTN Pro-Life Weekly: As Joe Biden is inaugurated the second Catholic president in U.S. history this week, pro-lifers voice concern over his abortion agenda which directly contradicts Church teaching… and much more!
It’s time that Congress take the next step and tell every baby, rich or poor, black or white, native-born or immigrant, that he or she will not be left on the cold steel of an abortion clinic table. It’s time to join hands across the aisle and make this protection national law.
