Carson City, NV(LifeNews.com) — The national pro-life women’s group Susan B. Anthony List issued an endorsement today for Sue Lowden, one of the candidates seeking the Republican nomination to take on Sen. Harry Reid. He is the top Democrat in the Senate who pushed the pro-abortion health care bill.
Marjorie Dannenfelser told LifeNews.com Tuesday morning that the SBA List is excited to get in Lowden’s corner.
"The Susan B. Anthony List Candidate Fund is proud to endorse Sue Lowden for U.S. Senate in Nevada," she said.
"Sue Lowden is exactly the type of authentic pro-life candidate Americans are hungry for, and that’s why the SBA List Candidate Fund is prepared to highlight her race among a handful of priority contests in 2010," Dannenfelser added. "Right now there is a crying need for a pro-life woman’s voice in the Senate and Sue Lowden is committed to being that voice."
Dannenfelser continued: "If elected, Sue Lowden has committed to be actively engaged in advancing legislation that protects the unborn and women. Sue combines everything we are looking for: an articulate female spokesman with the courage to back it up with advocacy for the unborn and women."
The SBA List president says Lowden’s pro-life record spans back to her time as a Nevada state senator, where she championed a parental notification bill through committee to the floor of the Nevada State Senate.
The Nevada primary election is scheduled for June 8 and Lowden will face Danny Tarkanian and Sharron Angle — both of whom are pro-life candidates as well.
Whichever candidate emerges with the GOP nomination will face Reid in the November general election.
Dannenfelser said Reid, despite having a pro-life position in decades past, Reid holds a 0% voting record with the National Right to Life Committee for the 111th Congress.
She noted that in the recent health care debate, Reid refused to support authentic pro-life amendments. As a response, last Fall, the Susan B. Anthony List spent $100,000 on commercials asking Harry Reid to keep abortion out of healthcare.
Susan B. Anthony List Candidate Fund endorsements are promoted to the organization’s nationwide membership of over 280,000 Americans. The group endorses pro-life women as well as pro-life men who run against pro-life women candidates.
During the 2008 election cycle, the Susan B. Anthony List bundled over $1 million in direct candidate contributions from its members.
