Pro-Life Group Heads to Midwest to urge Voters to Dump "Pro-Life" Democrats

Washington, DC (LifeNews.com) — With the repeal or de-funding of the pro-abortion health care bill becoming a clear campaign theme across the nation, a pro-life group is hitting the road to remind voters that the "pro-life" Democrats they thought they were electing sold out when it comes to the health care bill funding abortions.
Former congresswoman Marilyn Musgrave, a pro-life advocate from Colorado who is a spokeswoman for the Susan B. Anthony List, emailed pro-lifer supporters today with more about the upcoming road trip.
"With so much on the line on November 2nd including the fate of millions of unborn children threatened by the Obama-Pelosi agenda the Susan B. Anthony List is getting ready to take our campaign for Life on the road," she said.
"Starting next Tuesday, while members of Congress are home for their August recess, the SBA List team will travel across Pennsylvania, Indiana and Ohio to bring a message to the ‘pro-life Democrats’ and the voters in their districts," Musgrave continued. "We’ve done it before, but this time its different."
"Seven months ago we stood outside district offices across the Midwest with messages of thanks and encouragement, imploring Reps. Brad Ellsworth, Kathy Dahlkemper, Steve Driehaus, Joe Donnelly, Baron Hill and Marcy Kaptur to hold firm to their pro-life principles and honor the will of their constituents," she said. "But, as we all know, they chose to compromise their principles and pass a bill without sufficient language protecting the unborn and American conscience."
Musgrave said the Votes Have Consequences bus tour next week will mobilize pro-life voters across these districts and remind them that the only way to stop the pro-abortion health care law "is to make sure that authentic pro-life leaders are elected in November."
The campaign will take the pro-life group through numerous Indiana cities but also stops in Toledo and Cincinnati, Ohio as well as four stops in cities in Pennsylvania.
"We must grab the opportunity we have to deliver authentic pro-life leaders to Congress and to make sure those who betrayed us understand the consequences of their votes," Musgrave concludes in her letter.
"We must restore the pro-life standard in the Congress so that no one who abandons the unborn on a key vote like health care can continue to claim the mantle of ‘pro-life,’" she says.
