A leading pro-life organization, Susan B. Anthony Pro-Life America, hopes to reach 8 million voters by November with information encouraging them to support pro-life candidates for office.

The Christian Post reports SBA Pro-Life America plans to spend $78 million on voter outreach ahead of the midterm election, including mail pieces, advertisements and door-to-door campaigns.

The election will determine which party controls the U.S. House and Senate and whether pro-life or pro-abortion legislation will pass. Key races include U.S. Senate seats in Arizona, Florida, Georgia, Michigan, New Hampshire, Nevada, North Carolina, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin, as well as a number of governors’ races.

Both pro-life and pro-abortion groups are investing huge amounts of resources into Senate races in Arizona between pro-life Republican Blake Masters and pro-abortion Democrat Sen. Mark Kelly, in Georgia between pro-life Republican Herschel Walker and pro-abortion Democrat Sen. Raphael Warnock, in Ohio between pro-life Republican J.D. Vance and pro-abortion Democrat Tim Ryan, and in Pennsylvania between pro-life Republican Dr. Mehmet Oz and pro-abortion Democrat John Fetterman.

Mary Owens, the communications director for SBA Pro-Life America, told the Christian Post that they have “boots on the ground” in these and other states to “educate voters on the life issue and expose the Democrats’ pro-abortion extremism.”

“This election cycle, SBA Pro-Life America and its entities plan to spend $78 million. We are on track to reach 8 million voters across battleground states,” Owens said. “We will reach 4 million voters directly at their doors. The rest of the voters we will reach via TV and radio ads, digital ads, and direct voter mail.”

Among Democrat leaders’ top priorities if they win a few more seats in the Senate is a radical pro-abortion bill nicknamed the Abortion without Limits Up to Birth Act. The legislation, the so-called Women’s Health Protection Act (WHPA), would force states to legalize abortions for basically any reason up to birth, end bans on sex-selection and taxpayer-funded abortions, and get rid of laws requiring parental consent and informed consent.

Polls consistently show a strong majority of Americans oppose such extreme measures.

Because the U.S. Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade in June, abortion has become a major issue of the election. Carol Tobias, president of National Right to Life, which also is working to support pro-life candidates in key swing states, told the Christian Post that they have seen more voter interest in the issue recently.

She said they “fully expect, as in previous years, that pro-life people will turn out and make the difference for pro-life candidates.”

“Democrats have already shown their determination to establish a federal law that allows abortion on demand for all nine months of pregnancy for any reason, even as a method of birth control,” Tobias said. “And they want tax dollars to pay for it. If they maintain control of the U.S. House and add one or two more seats in the Senate, their goal will become a reality.”

Currently, pro-abortion Democrats control the U.S. House and, more narrowly, the U.S. Senate. Election experts predict Republicans will win back the House in November, but Democrats will maintain control of the Senate.

Whoever wins the majority will determine the types of abortion legislation that Congress may pass in the near future, such as a national ban on abortions after 15 weeks on the pro-life side or taxpayer-funded abortions through all nine months of pregnancy on the pro-abortion side.
