A major pro-life organization has announced the largest campaign in history to turn out pro-life voters for a presidential election.
Today Susan B. Anthony List (SBA List) and its partner super PAC, Women Speak Out PAC, announced plans for the 2020 Campaign that include boots on the ground, voter contact mail, phone calls, and digital ads, and is part of the organizations’ overall $52 million budget for the 2020 cycle.
The SBA List ground team has already visited more than 460,000 homes across battleground states this election cycle and is currently visiting voters in Arizona, Florida, and North Carolina. The team will expand in phases to Iowa, Georgia, Michigan, Pennsylvania, Texas, and Wisconsin and will make four million visits to voters overall before Election Day.
The massive campaign is designed to turn out as many pro-life voters as possible to support candidates, especially for President Donald Trump — who will face opposition from a radical Democrat nominee who wants to force abortions up to birth at taxpayer expense on the entire nation.
“The stakes of this election could not be higher. Democratic contenders for president are lining up to support abortion on demand, and even infanticide, and declaring war on even the most modest pro-life policies. Meanwhile, President Trump has governed as the most pro-life president in our nation’s history,” said Mallory Quigley, national spokeswoman for Susan B. Anthony List and Women Speak Out PAC’s independent expenditure campaign.
She told LifeNews.com: “Polls confirm what our on-the-ground experience and message testing show to be true: Democrats’ abortion radicalism is a liability for them at the ballot box. From now until Election Day, our team will go door-to-door visiting traditional Democrat voter groups who may simply be unaware of the Democrats’ support for extreme pro-abortion policies. Our focused, battle-tested voter outreach method will ensure we reach the voters who can provide President Trump and pro-life Senate candidates the winning margin on Election Day.”
Tim Edson, SBA List’s National Campaign Director, talked about the voter contact specifics.
“Over the last three election cycles, the SBA List and Women Speak Out PAC field team has visited more than 4.6 million voters with more than four thousand canvassers. Our state-of-the-art ground game played a critical role in electing President Trump to the White House and our current pro-life majority in the U.S. Senate,” he explained. “With nearly 10 months to go until Election Day 2020, our canvassers have already visited 460,000 voters in the critical swing states, educating them about the extreme pro-abortion positions of Democratic presidential candidates and Senate candidates bought and paid for by Planned Parenthood and the abortion lobby.”
When it comes to pro-life issues, there are plenty of reasons for pro-life voters to support Trump. He has taken a number of important actions to protect unborn babies since he became president.
In one of his first acts as president, he reinstated and expanded the Mexico City Policy, which prohibits taxpayer funding to international groups that promote or provide abortions overseas. The change defunded Planned Parenthood’s international arm of about $100 million in U.S. tax dollars.
Trump also repeatedly calls out the Democratic Party’s extreme position on abortion. During his state of the union address this year, Trump slammed the governors of New York and Virginia for promoting abortion up to birth and infanticide. He also called for Congress to pass a ban on late-term abortions on babies who are capable of feeling pain.
Trump and his administration have made a number of changes to protect those who morally object to abortions, expanding conscience protections for pro-life medical workers and increasing religious exemptions for Obamacare.
His administration also intervened to stop the United Nations from supporting abortion in a resolution about sexual violence. In 2018, under his leadership, the State Department removed references to the so-called “right” to abort an unborn baby from a global human rights report as well.
This spring, the administration also finalized a new Title X rule that requires health care entities to completely separate abortion from their taxpayer-funded services. Planned Parenthood lost about $60 million in taxpayer funding through the policy change.
Trump also has appointed dozens of conservative judges to federal courts, including two to the U.S. Supreme Court.
