Pro-Life Bus Tour Targets President Obama & Tammy Baldwin in Wisconsin
WISCONSIN ─ Today the Susan B. Anthony List (SBA List) “Women Speak Out: Abortion is Not Health Care” 30-stop bus tour will make stops in La Crosse, Madison, and Waukesha, WI. The bus tour will draw attention to the extreme abortion record of President Obama and Senate candidate Tammy Baldwin (D). SBA List spokeswoman former Colorado Rep. Marilyn Musgrave and pro-life nurse and whistleblower Jill Stanek, who exposed then state-senator Obama’s refusal to protect children who survived the abortion procedure, will lead the tour. Wisconsin Lt. Gov. Rebecca Kleefisch will join a press conference in Madison. For a complete tour schedule, visit www.SBAbus.com.

Previously, the bus was in Iowa targeting President Obama along with abortion advocate House candidate Christie Vilsack. From Wisconsin, the bus will continue to Ohio, Virginia, and Florida, calling for the defeat of President Obama and pro-abortion Senate candidates Sherrod Brown (OH), Tim Kaine (VA), and Bill Nelson (FL).
The Susan B. Anthony List, and its connected Political Action Committee, the SBA List Candidate Fund, are dedicated to electing candidates and pursuing policies that will reduce and ultimately end abortion. To that end, the SBA List will emphasize the election, education, promotion, and mobilization of pro-life women.
