Today America’s largest abortion business, Planned Parenthood, announced it has endorsed Florida senatorial candidate Patrick Murphy. In response, Marjorie Dannenfelser, president of the national pro-life group Susan B. Anthony List offered the following comment:
“Patrick Murphy and Planned Parenthood, the nation’s biggest abortion business, are abortion extremists. They oppose even the most modest pro-life reforms, including a common sense limit on abortion more than halfway through pregnancy and longtime bipartisan legislation to keep taxpayer dollars from being used for abortion on-demand. This endorsement confirms that Murphy will put the interests of the abortion lobby over Florida women, families, and taxpayers.
“The SBA List and Women Speak Out PAC Florida field team has knocked on more than 250,000 doors across the state, laying the groundwork for a Rubio victory over Murphy in November. Not only are we working to turn out inconsistent pro-life voters, we’re talking to persuadable Democrats, including Hispanics, who are horrified to learn about Murphy’s support for forcing taxpayers to fund late-term abortion up until the moment of birth. His position is profoundly unpopular and we’re confident voters will reject it at the ballot box.”
To date, SBA List’s field team of nearly 400 pro-life activists has knocked on more than 600,000 doors across the battleground states of Florida, North Carolina, and Ohio. SBA List has more than 120 pro-life canvassers in Florida alone.
