Washington, DC (LifeNews.com) — If the Susan B. Anthony List is successful, a new voter outreach program will connect 1.3 million voters in battleground states with information about where the presidential candidates stand on abortion. The pro-life women’s group hopes that will help make a difference in the results next month.

“Today the Susan B. Anthony List’s efforts to educate and mobilize over one million pro-life voters have kicked into high gear,” SBA List president Marjorie Dannenfelser told LifeNews.com on Monday.

With the mainstream media giving scant coverage to the issue of abortion and the clear divide that exists between Barack Obama and John McCain, pro-life groups like SBA List are taking the message directly to voters.

“The Susan B. Anthony List’s efforts will play an invaluable educational role over the next few weeks. While Barack Obama avoids his legislative record of opposing protections for abortion survivors, we are there to stand up for the truth," she said.

Dannenfelser told LifeNews.com the voter outreach project will also help pro-life candidates in key Senate and House races.

"While Senate candidates like Al Franken in Minnesota and Kay Hagan in North Carolina hide their extreme support for abortion on-demand from the voters, we are there to expose it," she said. "American voters deserve to know the truth about who really is – and isn’t – on the side of unborn children.”

The sophisticated voter education and mobilization program will target over 1.3 million pro-life voters through mail, radio and phone-banking across key battleground states.

Currently, educational ads are running on Christian radio in four states: Colorado, Minnesota, New Hampshire, and North Carolina and plans are in the works to expand beyond those states.

The program will target voters in nine battleground states soon, with a focus on Senate races in Colorado, Kentucky, Minnesota, New Hampshire and North Carolina and the presidential race in Colorado, Michigan, Minnesota, New Hampshire, New Mexico, Ohio, and Pennsylvania.

Dannenfelser concluded: "The future of women and their unborn children hangs in the balance with this election. And we are working overtime to educate voters about the candidates who are truly committed to defending innocent human life."
