Urges Voters to Support Pro-Life Candidate Bryce Reeves for 17th District
WASHINGTON, D.C. – The Susan B. Anthony List today launched a combined radio, print and mail campaign in Virginia to encourage voters in the 17th State Senate district to cast their vote for Republican Bryce Reeves who is challenging incumbent Democrat Edd Houck. The radio ads will air on Virginia radio stations across the district beginning Wednesday, November 2 thru Tuesday, November 8.
“Senator Houck has a 100 percent pro-abortion voting record, jeopardizing the health of women and teens,” said SBA List President Marjorie Dannenfelser. “As Chairman of the Education and Health Committee, Senator Houck has consistently prevented pro-life legislation from even reaching the floor for debate. Voters in the 17th district and all Virginians deserve a representative who is willing to stand up and defend human life; that ally can be found in Bryce Reeves.”
The radio ad features the following script:
The facts about State Senator Edd Houck?
The National Abortion Rights Action League gave Houck a 100 percent rating for his pro-abortion voting record.
Edd Houck voted against making it a crime to coerce or use force to make a woman have an abortion. Houck voted against making abortion providers have the same level of health standards as a hospital, jeopardizing the health of women. And, Houck even voted three times against requiring abortion clinics to notify parents before an abortion is performed on their teen daughters.
Edd Houck: A 100 percent pro-abortion voting record, jeopardizing the health of women, threatening unborn life.
We need to make a change. Bryce Reeves: A pro-life champion we can trust to protect unborn life.
On November 8, Bryce Reeves is the right choice for State Senate.
In conjunction with the radio ad, the mail campaign will reach more than 12,000 voters in the 17th State Senate district, and newspaper ads will run in the Central Virginian, Orange County Review, and the Star Component. Both the mail and newspaper campaigns specifically target Senator Houck’s record of voting against pro-life measures. In total, the group plans to spend $25,000 on mail, radio and newspaper ads to encourage voters to elect Bryce Reeves.
The Susan B. Anthony List is a nationwide network of more than 330,000 Americans 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.
