WHY: Marilyn Musgrave states, “During the health care battle, the abortion issue was a pivot point for the passage or failure of the entire bill. ‘Pro-life’ Democrats chose a last-minute fig leaf over standing up for the pro-life American majority they claimed to represent. We promised then that their vote would have consequences and that we would work hard to inform voters of their betrayal. For not one minute have we let up on that promise and next week we will take this message on the road directly to the voters in a 23-city bus tour. Votes have consequences and, for these pro-life betrayers, it will be a quick downhill slide to defeat in November.”

The Susan B. Anthony List is focusing its efforts in the districts of “pro-life” Democrats Steve Driehaus (OH-01), Marcy Kaptur (OH-09), Brad Ellsworth (IN-08), Baron Hill (IN-09), Joe Donnelly (IN-02) and Kathy Dahlkemper (PA-03) as part of its $1.5 million voter education effort, which includes this 23-city “Votes Have Consequences” bus tour. During the health care battle, the SBA List spent over $3 million in the fight to keep taxpayer-funded abortion out of the health care bill. SBA List has committed another $1.5 million to defeat “pro-life” Democrats who voted for the bill. The first two victories of this effort were Rep. Bart Stupak’s (MI-01) resignation in April and Rep. Alan Mollohan’s (WV-01) primary election defeat in May.
