BACHMANN TO SPEAK ON FINAL LEG OF “VALUES VOTER” BUS TOUR
State-wide Bus Tour Promoting SBA List’s Pro-life Presidential Leadership Pledge
Washington, D.C. ─ On Friday, August 12, 2011 the Susan B. Anthony List (SBA), along with FRC Action’s Faith Family Freedom Fund and the National Organization for Marriage (NOM), will stop in Ames, Iowa ahead of the straw poll as part of the “Values Voter Bus Tour” that will cover 1,305 miles in four days with events in 22 cities. Rep. Bachmann, who is a signer of the group’s Pro-Life Presidential Leadership Pledge, will join former Rep. Marilyn Musgrave and other speakers.
“President Obama is the most pro-abortion President in United States history and has threatened individual states for exercising their right to de-fund Planned Parenthood. SBA List will get the word out to straw poll and caucus goers on which candidates have taken their Pro-Life Presidential Leadership Pledge and can be counted on as a strong leader in defending human life,” said SBA List President Marjorie Dannenfelser about the importance of electing a pro-life President in 2012.
Six candidates have signed the pledge to date: Rep. Michele Bachmann, Gov. Tim Pawlenty, Speaker Newt Gingrich, Rep. Ron Paul, Sen. Rick Santorum, and Rep. Thaddeus McCotter.
