SBA List Launches KaineFactsOnLife.com Exposing Abortion Record
Washington, DC ─ Today, the Susan B. Anthony List (SBA List) announced the launch of a combined $200,000 radio ad and mail campaign to expose Virginia senate candidate Tim Kaine’s support for President Obama’s extreme abortion agenda. The new ad directs voters to www.KaineFactsOnLife.com, a subsection of the SBA List’s newly launched website, www.ObamaFactsOnLife.com. The website serves as an educational tool for voters seeking to learn more about President Obama and those, like Tim Kaine, on his “extreme team” who stand for taxpayer funding of abortion and attacks on religious liberty and rights of conscience. The $50,000 radio ad campaign will run on Christian and conservative talk radio for two weeks beginning on Monday, while $150,000 will go towards voter contact mail.
“If elected to the U.S. Senate, Tim Kaine will do nothing more than rubberstamp President Obama’s expanding abortion agenda,” said Marjorie Dannenfelser, President of the Susan B. Anthony List. “A longtime abortion advocate himself, Tim Kaine even opposes common sense limits to abortion like parental notification laws to protect underage children from abortion. Tim Kaine fully supports the President’s expansion of taxpayer funding for abortion under Obamcare and has refused to support any efforts to protect religious liberty and the rights of conscience. Virginia women and families deserve better than Tim Kaine.”
A partial script of the ad follows:
Voice 1: Every child deserves the chance to do great things with their lives.
Voice 2: I would’ve been an inventor.
Voice 3: I would’ve been a teacher.
Voice 1: But for over 25,000 Virginia babies, we’ll never know their potential. Their lives were snuffed out last year by an abortion.
Voice 4: I would’ve been an astronaut.
Voice 5: I would’ve been a musician.
Voice 1: Tim Kaine wants to be your next U.S. Senator. If elected, he’ll be a foot soldier in Washington for the abortion industry.
Voice 6: I would’ve been a pastor.
Voice 7: I would’ve been a computer programmer.
Voice 1: Tim Kaine supports Obamacare even though it would pay for abortions with your tax money. And he backs President Obama’s plan to force religious groups to pay for abortion inducing drugs and sterilization…This November, protect innocent lives. This November, stop Tim Kaine.
Thus far in the presidential race the SBA List and the Women Speak Out PAC have spent a combined total of more than $1,025,000 on television ads exposing President Obama’s opposition to legislation to provide equal treatment to babies born alive after a failed abortion. This includes $295,000 worth of ads in the Richmond and Hamptons Road, VA media markets.
The Susan B. Anthony List, and its affiliated Political Action Committees, the SBA List Candidate Fund and Women Speak Out PAC, are dedicated to pursuing policies and electing candidates that will reduce and ultimately end abortion. To that end, the SBA List will emphasize the education, promotion, mobilization, and election of pro-life women. The SBA List is a network of more than 365,000 pro-life Americans nationwide.
