It Is Payback Time

April 7, 2010

The Susan B. Anthony List on Tuesday launched a $150,000 robocall offensive against Michigan Rep. Bart Stupak and four other anti-abortion House Democrats who wound up voting for health reform, calling their vote ‘the ultimate betrayal.’ From an SBA press release: ‘Today the Susan B. Anthony List will launch a $150,000 radio advertisement and automated phone call campaign in the districts of Reps. Steve Driehaus (OH-1), Kathy Dahlkemper (PA-3), Brad Ellsworth (IN-9) , Alan Mollohan (WV-1), and Bart Stupak (MI-1) to inform voters that their ‘Yes’ vote on healthcare reform forces taxpayers to pay for abortion: ‘Leading up to the fateful vote on healthcare reform, the Susan B. Anthony List was working tirelessly to build up grassroots support and encouragement for self-labeled ‘pro-life’ Democrats, including Rep. Stupak,’ said Marjorie Dannenfelser, President of Susan B. Anthony List. ‘Since these Democrats instead traded their legislative power to prevent taxpayer funding of abortion for an Executive Order that did nothing to protect the status quo and address the fundamental taxpayer abortion funding problem in the bill, we have had to change course. Now, with severe disappointment, we go back to their districts to tell voters that their representative ushered in the greatest expansion of abortion since Roe v. Wade.’
