WASHINGTON, D.C. – Tonight, the Susan B. Anthony List celebrated endorsed Delaware U.S. Senate candidate Christine O’Donnell’s Republican primary victory over Rep. Mike Castle. The SBA List was the first national pro-life group to endorse O’Donnell this cycle.
“Christine O’Donnell’s win, combined with the successes of Carly Fiorina and Sharron Angle, continues building momentum for 2010 to be remembered as the ‘Year of the Pro-life Woman,” said SBA List President Marjorie Dannenfelser. “Christine O’Donnell’s come-from-behind victory is evidence that voters across America are hungry for conservative pro-life candidates.”
“In all human rights battles, the messenger matters. As the late pro-life champion Rep. Henry Hyde once told me, it is absolutely vital that we have women in Congress standing up for the truth that abortion is the ultimate exploitation of women. But with no pro-life women currently in the Senate, Barbara Boxer goes unchallenged telling our pro-life men they can’t speak for women.”
“That will change in the Senate this November when authentic pro-life women leaders like Christine O’Donnell are elected. Her victory is part of a new pro-life women’s movement making its way to the U.S. Senate. While her primary opponent held an explicitly pro-abortion voting record, O’Donnell expressed her strong determination to be a vocal advocate for women and unborn children on the floor of the U.S. Senate, a stance which clearly made a difference at the ballot box.”
Christine O’Donnell will face Democrat Chris Coons in the November general election.
The Susan B. Anthony List plans to spend $6 million on voter education in the midterm elections, including $3 million on key Senate races. The Susan B. Anthony List is a nationwide network of over 280,000 Americans, 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.
