Pro-life Field Team Hits Historic Milestone in Effort to Defeat Clinton & Safeguard Pro-life Senator Marco Rubio
Washington, D.C. – The national pro-life group Susan B. Anthony List (SBA List) and its partner super PAC, Women Speak Out announced today its Florida ground team of 250 pro-life activists has knocked on more than 500,000 doors as part of a massive get-out-the-vote effort. Nationally, more than 700 pro-life canvassers with SBA List/Women Speak Out have knocked on the doors of 1,062,000+ homes in the battleground states of North Carolina, Florida, Ohio, and Missouri. This is double the previous record of half a million homes visited during the 2014 cycle.
SBA List president Marjorie Dannenfelser commented on this major milestone, saying:
“SBA List and Women Speak Out have been on the ground in Florida since last October. For the last year, we’ve been working with statewide pro-life activists on a massive scale to reach half of a million voters directly at their homes. Our door to door team cuts through the noise of television and radio ads, talking to voters about the importance of voting pro-life and the abortion extremism of Hillary Clinton and Patrick Murphy.
“We are talking to Florida pro-life voters who, without information on the pro-life positions of candidates, may not vote or may vote for the pro-abortion candidates. We’re also reaching Hispanic voters and Democrats who oppose the Clinton-Murphy plan to force taxpayers to fund late-term abortion on-demand. This ground operation is an unprecedented effort demonstrating the political muscle of the pro-life movement.”
SBA List and Women Speak Out PAC have also launched a $200,000 online ad component, as well as voter mail, in the final weeks of the general election. Through the digital campaign, SBA List will reach 550,000 pro-life, low propensity voters multiple times online.
A Marist poll released in July found that a majority of Americans (62 percent) oppose taxpayer funding of abortion including 45 percent of those who say they are “pro-choice” and 44 percent of Democrats.
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.
