Des Moines, IA – Women Speak Out PAC, a partner of the national pro-life group Susan B. Anthony List, today announced a six-figure independent expenditure campaign, together with The FAMiLY LEADER, to mobilize pro-life voters across Iowa to support the re-election of Governor Kim Reynolds and educate them about the extreme pro-abortion record of her opponent, Fred Hubbell. SBA List President Marjorie Dannenfelser will speak at the 2018 Family Leadership Summit today in Des Moines, Iowa.
Governor Reynolds is also being endorsed today by the Susan B. Anthony List Candidate Fund.
“Kim Reynolds is a courageous pro-life champion,” said SBA List President Marjorie Dannenfelser. “Kim showed principled leadership in signing legislation to protect unborn children beginning at their first heartbeats. As a state senator and then as lieutenant governor, she fought to stop taxpayer funding of the abortion industry and shepherded crucial pro-life bills like the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act through the Iowa legislature. Her opponent, Fred Hubbell, is a longtime former board member of Planned Parenthood, America’s largest abortion business. We are committed to exposing Hubbell’s extremism and supporting Kim’s re-election bid. She is an outstanding governor who deserves the vote of every pro-life Iowan.”
Bob Vander Plaats, president and CEO of The FAMiLY LEADER, said:
“Gov. Kim Reynolds has demonstrated strong leadership and a firm commitment to defending the lives of the most defenseless Iowans by signing the Heartbeat Bill into law. And today, her candidacy stands in stark contrast to an opponent, Fred Hubbell, who was once the chairman of the board of Planned Parenthood of the Heartland and still audaciously advocates for abortion providers. The choice for Iowans, and the choice for The FAMiLY LEADER, couldn’t be more clear: A governor who understands the preciousness of a baby’s life, versus an opponent who will work to ensure that babies’ lives can be snuffed out before birth.
“We know that pro-abortion forces outside Iowa will be pouring big money into making sure Fred Hubbell will carry out their extremist agenda. But Iowans know our children’s lives are worth more than Planned Parenthood’s profits. We would encourage all Iowans to join us in supporting Gov. Kim Reynolds for life, for babies and their mothers, and for governor.”
Kim Reynolds became the first female governor of Iowa in 2017, succeeding Governor Terry Branstad, after serving as lieutenant governor for six years. Prior to being elected lieutenant governor, she was a state senator. SBA List first endorsed Reynolds in 2010, and in 2013, she became a member of the Leadership Team of SBA List’s newly-formed National Pro-life Women’s Caucus. In August of 2017 she was inducted into the Iowa Women’s Hall of Fame, along with U.S. Senator Joni Ernst.
Susan B. Anthony List and its partner super PAC, Women Speak Out spent more than $18 million in the 2016 election cycle, visiting more than 1.1 million homes in battleground states to defeat Hillary Clinton and maintain a pro-life Senate. SBA List is dedicated to pursuing policies and electing candidates who will reduce and ultimately end abortion. To that end, SBA List emphasizes the education, promotion, mobilization, and election of pro-life women. SBA List is a network of more than 690,000 pro-life Americans nationwide.
