Anthony List’s Votes Have Consequences Bus Tour will make stops in Terre Haute, Vincennes, Evansville, and Jasper, Indiana, as part of a 23-city tour and national voter education effort in the home districts of Members of Congress with the message that “votes have consequences.” Each tour stop will feature local and state pro-life leaders and focus on educating voters that their representative voted for a health care bill that includes taxpayer-funded abortion and betrayed their pro-life constituents.

WHY: Marilyn Musgrave states, “During the health care battle, the abortion issue was a pivot point for the passage or failure of the entire bill. So-called ‘pro-life’ Democrats chose a last-minute fig leaf over standing up for the pro-life American majority they claimed to represent. We promised then that their vote would have consequences and that we would work hard to inform voters of their betrayal. For not one minute have we let up on that promise and next week we will take this message on the road directly to the voters in a 23-city bus tour. Votes have consequences and, for these pro-life betrayers, it will be a quick downhill slide to defeat in November.”
The Susan B. Anthony List is focusing its efforts in the districts of so-called “pro-life” Democrats Steve Driehaus (OH-01), Marcy Kaptur (OH-09), Brad Ellsworth (IN-Senate), Baron Hill (IN-09), Joe Donnelly (IN-02) and Kathy Dahlkemper (PA-03) as part of its $1.5 million voter education effort, which includes this 23-city “Votes Have Consequences” bus tour. During the health care battle, the SBA List spent over $3 million in the fight to keep taxpayer-funded abortion out of the health care bill. SBA List has committed another $1.5 million to defeat so-called “pro-life” Democrats who voted for the bill. The first two victories of this effort were Rep. Bart Stupak’s (MI-01) retirement and Rep. Alan Mollohan’s (WV-01) primary election defeat in May.
The Susan B. Anthony List is a nationwide network of Americans, over 280,000 residing in all 50 states, dedicated to mobilizing, advancing, and representing pro-life women in politics. Its connected Candidate Fund increases the percentage of pro-life women in the political process.
