SBA List, Citizen Link, Indiana Family Action, PA Family Council Launch $240,000 TV Ad

WASHINGTON, D.C.Today, the Susan B. Anthony List, CitizenLink, the Pennsylvania Family Council and Indiana Family Action announced the launch of a $240,000 television advertising campaign consisting of two $120,000 campaigns that will air in Rep. Kathy Dahlkemper (PA-03) and Rep. Joe Donnelly’s (IN-02) districts, highlighting their votes in favor of the pro-abortion health care bill.  The 30-second ads will begin airing today and the average viewer in their respective districts will see them eight or nine times over the course of their ten-day broadcast. 

“Abortion funding was a key issue in the passage of the health care bill,” said SBA List President Marjorie Dannenfelser.  “Kathy Dahlkemper, Joe Donnelly and the self-proclaimed ‘pro-life Democrats’ had all the power over whether it passed containing real protection for the unborn.  But, sadly, Donnelly and Dahlkemper traded those protections for a worthless executive order from the most pro-abortion president in our nation’s history.  This campaign will remind voters that Kathy Dahlkemper and Joe Donnelly had the chance to protect their constituents from funding abortion, but caved to Speaker Pelosi and President Obama, ushering in the biggest expansion of abortion since Roe v. Wade.”

“The votes on the healthcare bill meant life or death for preborn children,” said Tom Minnery, Senior Vice President of CitizenLink, a public policy affiliate of Focus on the Family.  “The votes on Election Day will help undo that wrong, and that’s why CitizenLink is helping to spread the word about Rep. Dahlkemper and Rep. Donnelly’s real records on abortion.”

“Voters in the third Congressional district have consistently voted to send pro-lifers to Congress, and they thought they were doing so with Kathy Dahlkemper,” said Pennsylvania Family Council President Michael Geer.  “At least, that’s what she told them.  But actions speak louder than words — and her vote for Obamacare, which funds abortions, is a terrible action for which she must be held accountable.”

“It’s essential that voters understand the health care bill subsidizes abortion with tax dollars, and that they learn this fact before Nov. 2,” said Curt Smith, President of Indiana Family Action.

“Though they have tried to confuse voters, Kathy Dahlkemper and Joe Donnelly can’t hide from their records,” Dannenfelser added.  “We promised them that their votes would have consequences at the ballot box.  We promised to support them if they protected the unborn and to work hard to inform their constituents if they betrayed them.  Now, we are keeping that promise.”

The fate of Obamacare came down to a few key votes.

Legislation that uses our tax dollars to pay for abortions.

Protect life…

Kathy Dahlkemper betrayed you and voted for the biggest expansion of abortion in decades.

Votes have consequences, Congresswoman.
