Media Advisory: PRESIDENT TO SHUT DOWN GOVERNMENT TO KEEP PLANNED PARENTHOOD RUNNING

Conference Call on Budget Defunding Provision

Washington, D.C. – Today, the Susan B. Anthony List will be joined by Rep. Jim Jordan, Chairman of the Republican Study Committee (RSC) to discuss the effort to defund Planned Parenthood on a media conference call this afternoon.

“The President has singled out Planned Parenthood, a significant financial and political supporter for special attention and protection,” said Marjorie Dannenfelser, president of SBA List.  “It is extraordinary that the President sees federal funding for the nation’s number one abortion provider as more important than paychecks for federal workers and funding for our military.  When is the question going to be asked of President Obama and Senator Harry Reid, ‘Why is it reasonable to shut down the government in order to protect Planned Parenthood?’”

WHAT: Conference call combating attack campaign by Democrats and exposing Planned Parenthood’s corporate business model centered on abortion

WHO: Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH), Chairman of Republican Study Committee
Marjorie Dannenfelser, President of the Susan B. Anthony List

WHEN:Today, April 8, 2011, 3:00 pm EST

CALL-IN: 800-501-8979, access code: 8486972#

Call in at least 2 minutes before and announce name and media organization

The SBA List has spent more than $500,000 on a robust campaign to defund Planned Parenthood, which has included television and radio ads, a bus tour, grassroots mobilization and print ads.  The SBA List also has released statements by potential 2012 Republican presidential candidates in support of the defunding effort.

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.
