Pro-Life Group Runs Radio Ads Supporting Sue Lowden for Nevada Senate Seat

Carson City, NV (LifeNews.com) — A pro-life women’s group today announced it is unveiling a major radio advertising purchase to benefit Nevada Senate hopeful Sue Lowden. The Susan B. Anthony List issued an endorsement for Lowden in March as she seeks the Republican nomination to take on pro-abortion Democratic leader Harry Reid.
He is the top Democrat in the Senate who pushed the pro-abortion health care bill.
SBA List, a pro-life women’s group, launched a $50,000 radio ad campaign highlighting Lowden’s pro-life record, and the ad is part of a $1 million effort to urge Nevada voters to support her.
"Sue Lowden is a committed pro-life leader, exactly the kind of leader for unborn children and women that we urgently need in the U.S. Senate," said Marjorie Dannenfelser, president of the organization.
"Too often elected officials say one thing at home and vote another way in Washington," Dannenfelser told LifeNews.com. "The Susan B. Anthony List is committed to making sure that Nevada voters know that there is a clear contrast between Harry Reid, who calls himself ‘pro-life,’ and the true pro-life leader that Sue Lowden has proven to be in the Nevada state senate."
"Unlike Reid, Sue Lowden will forcefully defend unborn children and women in the U.S. Senate," she added.
The radio ad will run 70 times a day on weekdays through May 14 and says:
This is a pivotal moment for America. We’ve just seen the greatest expansion of abortion in decades. Harry Reid’s health care bill spends our tax dollars to pay for the death of unborn children.
More than ever, America needs committed pro-life leaders…leaders like Sue Lowden.
In the state senate Sue Lowden led the fight for legislation that required parents be notified if their teen daughter was seeking an abortion.
I know we can trust Sue Lowden to fight abortion. Call her at 702-302-4097, and thank her for being a pro-life champion.
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 Republican primary election is scheduled for June 8, 2010, where Lowden will face Danny Tarkanian and Sharron Angle.
Reid holds a 0% voting record with the National Right to Life Committee for the 111th Congress. In the recent healthcare debate, Reid refused to support authentic pro-life amendments.
SBA list has had an interest in dethroning Reid and 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.
