Nelson is an extremist who votes for abortion on demand through birth
Washington, D.C. – Today the national pro-life group Susan B. Anthony List (SBA List) announced its field team of 159 canvassers has visited more than one million Florida voters ahead of Election Day to elect pro-life Rick Scott and defeat incumbent Senator Bill Nelson. Additionally, SBA List has held 14 in-state media events.
“Senator Nelson presents himself as a moderate, but he is an extremist who votes for abortion on demand through birth,” said SBA List President Marjorie Dannenfelser. “SBA List’s field team has visited more than one million Florida voters who don’t consistently get to the polls, educating them about Senator Nelson’s repeated betrayals, including his votes to block Justice Brett Kavanaugh, send taxpayer dollars to abortion giant Planned Parenthood, and keep barbaric late-term abortions legal. The pro-life voters of Florida are horrified and out of patience with Senator Nelson. Floridians deserve better than a senator who sides with the radical abortion lobby over his own constituents. Nelson is out of step.”
SBA List’s field team of more than 1,100 canvassers visited 2.7 million voters this election cycle across the battleground states of Florida, Indiana, Missouri, North Dakota, Montana, West Virginia, Ohio, Arizona, and Tennessee. A complete list of SBA List’s efforts to mobilize the pro-life vote in the 2018 election cycle can be viewed here.
SBA List held three press tours in Florida to urge Sen. Nelson to vote to confirm each of President Trump’s Supreme Court nominees, Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh, and to announce the field program.
SBA List is dedicated to ending abortion by electing national leaders and advocating for laws that save lives, with a special calling to promote pro-life women leaders. SBA List is a network of more than 700,000 pro-life Americans nationwide.
