Quietly, and under the radar for the most part, the pro-abortion PAC EMILY’s List has begun an “independent expenditure” political action committee discreetly called “Women Vote!”
So whereas EMILY’s List loudly touts that it supports only Democratic women who support abortion for any reason; government funding for abortion; and even partial-birth abortion, in a recent $400,00 ad buy Women Vote never mention the word “abortion.”
“Instead, they attack pro-life candidates – not on the issue of abortion – rather for being supported by “special interests,”” explains National Right to Life President and Pro-Life Perspective Host Carol Tobias. “As if EMILY’s List and Women Vote! are NOT ‘special interests!’”
A simple question quickly arises: Why? EMILY’s List must have
figured out that the American public is becoming increasingly pro-life. “The vast majority of the country is opposed to the vast majority of abortions and when candidates run on the issue of unregulated abortion for any reason, they are more likely to lose,” Mrs. Tobias explains.
You can hear today’s broadcast and any you may have missed this week at www.prolifeperspective.com. On today’s edition, Mrs. Tobias goes on to document how effectively National Right to Life’s Political Action Committee has performed. To just list a couple of important facts Mrs. Tobias highlights
1.According to a 2010 post-election poll, thirty percent of all voters said that abortion affected their vote. Of that 30%, 22% voted for pro-life candidates, while only eight percent voted for pro-abortion candidates.
2.In 2010, National Right to Life’s political action committee actively worked in 130 of the most competitive federal races nationwide. Eighty-eight of the 130 candidates supported by National Right to Life PAC won.
3.Eighteen of those candidates were in highly competitive races against candidates who were supported by the pro-abortion group, EMILY’s List, which raised and spent more than $38.5 million dollars in the 2010 elections. Despite being vastly outspent, the pro-life candidate supported by National Right to Life PAC won in fourteen of those eighteen races.
4.In 2012, EMILY’s List has eleven candidates running in the thirty-three U.S. Senate races, five of which are competitive races. Currently, they have 33 candidates running for the U.S. House of Representatives.
Whereas Women’s Vote rarely mentions abortion, National Right to Life PAC is there to ensure that voters understand the clear difference between candidates on life issues. And we don’t mince words. Mrs. Tobias ends today’s broadcast with this important reminder:
“The truth is that ever since 1980 when we elected Ronald Reagan President and carried the Senate, the work you do has been crucial in electing pro-life candidates to Congress.
“Whether it’s one life or a million lives, each life saved is precious. Each life saved is a family blessed with a baby, rather than cursed with despair and regret.
“The women behind EMILY’s List and Women Vote don’t understand that. And it’s why, despite all of their money and ad buys and fiery rhetoric, they will lose far more often than they win. Because in the end, life wins out.”
