The national pro-life group Susan B. Anthony List (SBA List) announced today its ground team of nearly 400 pro-life activists has hit more than 500,000 doors in the battleground states of Florida, North Carolina and Ohio. The campaign is a joint effort between SBA List and its partner super PAC, Women Speak Out.
SBA List president Marjorie Dannenfelser discussed the effort, saying:
Hillary Clinton has pledged to repeal the Hyde Amendment, longstanding bipartisan policy preventing federal taxpayer funding of abortion on-demand under Medicaid. The platform ratified by Democrats in Philadelphia, for the first time, explicitly calls for the repeal of this policy.
A Marist poll released last month found that a majority of Americans (62 percent) oppose taxpayer funding of abortion including 45 percent of those who say they are “pro-choice” and 44 percent of Democrats.
In 2014, Susan B. Anthony List and Women Speak Out knocked on more than half a million doors in North Carolina, Louisiana, Arkansas, and Kansas by Election Day.
