Radical pro-abortion groups NARAL and Emily’s List pulled their support today from Senator Kyrsten Sinema after she voted against ending the filibuster.
Senate Republicans and two Democrats voted last night to stop pro-abortion Democrat leader Chuck Schumer from ending the filibuster to pass legislation that would result in a federal takeover of the election system. Their votes also prevented the Senate from forcing through pro-abortion legislation that would make Americans fund abortions with their tax dollars and overturn pro-life laws nationwide.
And that was the reason the pro-abortion organizations kicked the Arizona senator to the curb, even though she’s pro-abortion:
EMILY’s List, a political action committee that works to elect Democratic women in favor of abortion rights, said on Thursday that it had officially taken back its endorsement of Sinema. The group was by far the largest donor to the Arizona senator’s successful 2018 campaign, according to Open Secrets. Earlier this week, Sinema was warned that she would lose the endorsement if she did not change her stance on the filibuster.

“Last night, Republicans continued their concerted effort to undermine our freedom to vote,” a statement issued by EMILY’s List on Thursday reads. “As Democrats fought for a bill that would ensure voters can cast their ballots freely and safely, Republicans were unified in rolling back our rights. Unfortunately, two Democrats refused to support a path forward on the bill.”
“We believe the decision by Sen. Sinema is not only a blow to voting rights and our electoral system but also to the work of all of the partners who supported her victory and her constituents who tried to communicate the importance of this bill,” the statement continued. “As a result, as we noted earlier this week, we will no longer be able to endorse Sen. Sinema moving forward.”
NARAL also dropped its support.
“We are dismayed by the Republican-led effort to block legislation to protect the freedom to vote,” NARAL said in a statement shortly after the filibuster vote failed. “These senators put themselves on the wrong side of history this evening and we will hold them accountable…Make no mistake: The freedom to vote underpins our fight for reproductive freedom and every other freedom we hold dear.”
The decisions could make it easier for a pro-life Republican candidate to defeat her in the next election, if the left is divided over whether she deserves their support and votes.
Sinema has a 100% pro-abortion voting record and pro-life groups will certainly work hard to support her next general election opponent.
