Rep. Marsha Blackburn (R., Tenn.), who is vying for the Republican nomination to replace retiring Sen. Bob Corker (Tenn.) in the Senate, received a big endorsement Tuesday from the Susan B. Anthony (SBA) List.
Susan B. Anthony List, which was founded in the 1990s, is an organization composed of 333,000 advocates who help elect pro-life men and women to Congress. The organization’s goal is to reduce the number of abortions performed nationwide and ensure that pro-life voices are included in public discourse.
SBA specifically listed Blackburn’s pro-life record and her willingness to defund Planned Parenthood after the Center for Medical Progress released secretly-recorded online videos of the organization’s employees discussing the sale of baby organs.
“Marsha Blackburn is a tireless pro-life champion who never hesitates to go on offense on behalf of unborn children and their mothers,” Marilyn Musgrave, the organization’s vice president of government affairs, said in a released statement. “From fighting to hold Planned Parenthood and other abortion businesses accountable for their role in the gruesome baby body parts trade, to protecting babies born alive in failed abortions and left to die, to keeping taxpayer dollars out of abortion industry coffers, she has lead the charge in so many important pro-life battles.”
