Dannenfelser: Pro-life Americans Must Defeat the Most Pro-Abortion Presidential Ticket in History & Re-Elect President Trump;
Women Speak Out PAC Launches 5-Figure Ad Buy Exposing Biden-Harris Radicalism on Abortion
Washington, D.C. – In response to news that Joe Biden selected Senator Kamala Harris (D-CA) as his vice-presidential pick for the 2020 election, Susan B. Anthony List President Marjorie Dannenfelser, who also serves as national co-chair of Pro-Life Voices for Trump, issued the following statement:
“Kamala Harris is an extremist who supports abortion on demand through birth, paid for by taxpayers, and even infanticide – an agenda rejected by the overwhelming majority of Americans, including millions of Independents and rank-and-file Democrats. As attorney general of California, Harris conspired with the abortion industry to launch a politically-motivated shakedown of brave citizen journalists who exposed Planned Parenthood’s role in the harvest and sale of aborted baby parts for profit.
“It is no surprise Joe Biden chose such an extremist as his running mate. If elected, they will immediately begin rolling back President Trump’s pro-life gains, as well as longstanding policies like the Hyde Amendment. They will stack the Supreme Court with pro-abortion ideologues, setting the pro-life cause back for generations. Together, Biden and Harris constitute the most pro-abortion presidential ticket in American history.
“In stark contrast, President Trump and Vice President Pence have delivered win after win for the pro-life movement – stopping taxpayer funding of abortion, fighting for conscience rights, and transforming the courts with a record-breaking 200 constitutionalist judges. Ahead of Election Day, SBA List is working to reach 4.6 million battleground state voters – more than the last three election cycles combined – to expose the Democrats’ extremism, re-elect President Trump, and secure a strong pro-life Senate majority. The stakes are life and death and the choice is clear. Pro-life Americans must unite to defeat Biden-Harris.”
Additionally, Women Speak Out PAC today announced a five-figure TV ad buy in battleground states, launching a :30 spot exposing Harris’ extremism on abortion. The ad campaign complements the SBA List’s boots on the ground activity in the battleground states of Arizona, Florida, Michigan, Montana, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin and is part of the organization’s overall $52 million budget for the 2020 cycle. Thus far, SBA List and Women Speak Out PAC have made more than one million visits to voters in-person and more than 1.5 million live voter calls.
Polling released by SBA List in June of last year found that a majority (50%) of voters are less likely to support Joe Biden following his flip-flop on the Hyde Amendment, when he announced he supports using tax dollars to pay for abortions after decades of advocating against it. This includes 55% of Independent voters who say they are less likely to support him.
Additionally, Marist polling conducted earlier this year shows 44% of Democrats and 62% of Independents want to vote for a candidate who supports common-ground limits on abortion. SBA List is tracking the abortion extremism of the Biden-Harris ticket at www.LifeOnTheBallot.com.
SBA List is a network of more than 837,000 pro-life Americans nationwide, dedicated to ending abortion by electing national leaders and advocating for laws that save lives, with a special calling to promote pro-life women leaders.
