Arkansas Congressional Candidate Cecile Bledsoe Gets Pro-Life Campaign Help

Little Rock, AR ( — Republican congressional candidate Cecile Bledsoe is receiving support from a national pro-life women’s group. The Susan B. Anthony List launched a one- week $20,000 independent expenditure campaign highlighting the strong pro-life leadership record of the third district candidate.

SBA List president Marjorie Dannenfelser emailed about the effort.

"Cecile Bledsoe is a dedicated pro-life leader with a history of passionate advocacy for women and unborn children in Arkansas and we know that she will bring that same passion to the House of Representatives," she said.

Susan B. Anthony List members are eager to support dedicated pro-life heroines when they need it most. With just ten pro-life women in the House of Representatives, now more than ever we need Cecile’s pro-woman, pro-life leadership in Congress," Dannenfelser added.

The SBA List is running a radio commercial that reads: "Life is precious. And no life is more vulnerable, more innocent, than an unborn child. It’s why Cecile Bledsoe has a perfect voting record with Arkansas Right to Life."

The ad continues: "It’s why she’s been a leader in the Arkansas Senate fighting for unborn children. It’s why Bledsoe sponsored legislation that required mothers seeking abortions be told about fetal development, and options for adoption. And it’s why Cecile Bledsoe led the fight to outlaw gruesome, partial birth abortions."

"With Washington politicians voting to use our tax dollars to pay for abortions… America and Arkansas have never needed leaders like her more," the SBA List spot says. "Cecile Bledsoe. The right choice for Congress in the June 8th Republican primary."

In addition to radio ads, the SBA List will place two rounds of automated calls, reaching 78,000 registered pro-life voters in the congressional district leading up to the primary election next week.

As a State Senator in Arkansas, Cecile Bledsoe sponsored the partial-birth abortion ban and a bill to help women seeking abortions learn of the risks and alternatives.

Arkansas’ runoff primary election is scheduled for June 8th, when Cecile Bledsoe will face Steve Womack for the Republican nomination.

The Susan B. Anthony List plans to spend $6 million on voter education in the midterm elections, including $3 million on key Senate races, $1 million in bundled direct candidate contributions from SBA List members and $1 million on its plan to target "pro-life" Democrats who voted for abortion funding in the health care bill.
