SBA List Will Work to Expose Beshear’s Record & Re-elect Bevin
Washington, D.C. – Tonight Attorney General Andy Beshear won the Democratic primary for governor of Kentucky. He will face incumbent Governor Matt Bevin in the general election on November 5.
The national pro-life group Susan B. Anthony List (SBA List) released the following statement in response to the primary results:
“Tonight Democrats doubled down on extremism, setting up a stark contrast between Governor Bevin – a fearless champion for life – and his opponent,” said SBA List President Marjorie Dannenfelser. “Andy Beshear is backed by the radical pro-abortion group NARAL. As attorney general he flagrantly sides against his own constituents, refusing to defend pro-life laws like Kentucky’s Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, which passed the legislature with overwhelming bipartisan support. Meanwhile Gov. Bevin stands with Kentuckians, proudly signing laws to protect unborn children from the moment their heartbeat can be detected, stop discriminatory abortions based on a child’s sex, race, or disability, end cruel dismemberment abortions, and more. Through Election Day SBA List will work to expose Beshear’s extreme record and re-elect Gov. Matt Bevin, a truly heroic pro-life leader.”
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.
