Exit polling on Election Day 2016 found that 21 percent of voters identified the Supreme Court vacancy as their most important issue. These voters overwhelmingly supported Donald Trump (57 percent to 41 percent) who promised to nominate only pro-life Supreme Court justices.
Activists nationwide are mobilizing online at prolifecourt.com to send messages to their U.S. senators. The campaign, coordinated by the national pro-life group Susan B. Anthony List, includes email and phone call campaigns to offices, in-state demonstrations targeting key senators, and a digital advertising campaign.
SBA List’s field team of more than 400 pro-life canvassers has visited more than one million homes in the battleground states of Indiana, Ohio, Florida, and Missouri and is expanding to West Virginia and North Dakota as part of a historic effort to educate and mobilize voters for the 2018 midterm election. SBA List canvassers are on track to reach two million homes by Election Day.
Susan B. Anthony List and its partner super PAC, Women Speak Out spent more than $18 million in the 2016 election cycle, visiting more than 1.1 million homes 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, SBA List emphasizes the education, promotion, mobilization, and election of pro-life women. SBA List is a network of more than 630,000 pro-life Americans nationwide.
