SBA List’s Campaign Reached 1.6 Million Low-Propensity Pro-life Voters, Pro-life Democrats and Hispanics
Washington, D.C. – Tonight the national pro-life group Susan B. Anthony List (SBA List) declared victory when Donald Trump won the presidential race and pro-life Republicans maintained control of the U.S. Senate.
SBA List president Marjorie Dannenfelser offered the following comment:
“Both the presidential race and the control of the Senate came down to tens of thousands of votes in Florida, Ohio, and North Carolina. SBA List’s outreach to 1.6 million low propensity pro-life voters and persuadable Democratic and Hispanic voters in these three states sealed victory both for Donald Trump and the pro-life Senate candidates.
“This is an historic moment for the pro-life movement. There are four critical pro-life goals now within our reach: end painful late-term abortions, codify the Hyde Amendment, defund Planned Parenthood, and appoint pro-life Supreme Court Justices.”
Donald Trump and pro-life Senate candidates won in every state where SBA List engaged. Leading up to Election Day, SBA List reached 1.6 million pro-life voters, including 1.1 million voters contacted directly at their homes in the battleground states of Florida, North Carolina, Ohio, and Missouri.
Susan B. Anthony List and its connected super PAC, Women Speak Out so far have spent more than $18 million in the 2016 election cycle, knocking on more than one million doors 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, the SBA List emphasizes the education, promotion, mobilization, and election of pro-life women. The SBA List is a network of more than 465,000 pro-life Americans nationwide.
