SBA List Radio, Digital Ads Expose Bullock’s Extremism as a Part of $200K Campaign
Washington, D.C. – Montana Governor Steve Bullock today vetoed the Montana Born-Alive Infant Protection Act, legislation to protect babies born alive in failed abortions. The national pro-life group Susan B. Anthony List (SBA List) slammed the veto, and will continue an ongoing radio and digital campaign to expose Bullock’s abortion extremism. The ads are part of a $200,000 campaign that also exposes the extremism of North Carolina Gov. Roy Cooper, who also vetoed Born-Alive legislation.
“Once again Governor Bullock sides with abortion extremists, going so far as to veto compassionate, popular legislation designed to provide care for children who survive failed abortions,” said SBA List President Marjorie Dannenfelser. “Governor Bullock is no moderate when it comes to abortion, and we’re exposing his extremist record to the voters.”
Nationwide polling released by SBA List finds that 77 percent of voters, including 70 percent of Democrats, support legislation to ensure that a baby who survives a failed abortion be given the same medical treatment as any other baby born prematurely at the same age (55 percent strongly support.)
Nearly 200 members of Congress, including Montana At-Large Rep. Greg Gianforte, have signed a discharge petition filed by House Republican Whip Steve Scalise (R-LA) to hold a vote on the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act. House Democratic Party leaders have refused more than 35 requests by members to vote on the bill. If a majority of representatives sign the petition, it will force a vote by the full House. Earlier this year U.S. Senator Steve Daines spoke on the Senate floor in support of a companion bill which was blocked by Democrats, including Senator Jon Tester.
SBA List is a network of more than 700,000 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.
