SBA List Endorses Chuck Grassley Against EMILY's List Pick in Iowa U.S. Senate Race

WASHINGTON, DCToday the Susan B. Anthony List announced its endorsement of incumbent Senator Chuck Grassley for U.S. Senate in Iowa.

“Chuck Grassley consistently votes to protect tax dollars from funding abortion and we’re proud to support his bid for re-election,” said SBA List President Marjorie Dannenfelser.  “His opponent, Roxanne Conlin, served as president of a pro-abortion group that opposed the Partial-Birth Abortion Ban.  Conlin’s pro-abortion views are out-of-step with commonsense Iowa values.  Chuck Grassley is the better candidate for women and all Iowans.”

Grassley earned a 100 percent rating with National Right to Life Committee in the 111th Congress including consistent votes against the pro-abortion health care bill and co-sponsorship of the Protect Life Act, a measure that would prevent tax dollars from paying for abortions.  He has been endorsed by National Right to Life.  Conlin has been endorsed by the pro-abortion EMILY’s List and served as president of the National Organization for Women (NOW)’s Legal Defense and Educational Fund.

A recent Rasmussen poll shows Grassley leading Conlin by a 55 percent to 37 percent margin.

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.
