SBA List Candidate Fund Endorses Sarah Steelman for Governor
WASHINGTON, May 27 /Christian Newswire/ -- Today the Susan B. Anthony List Candidate Fund, a national pro-life Political Action Committee, announced their endorsement of Sarah Steelman, Republican candidate for Missouri Governor.
Susan B. Anthony List Candidate Fund President Marjorie Dannenfelser commented on the endorsement:
"The Susan B. Anthony List Candidate Fund is proud to endorse Sarah Steelman for Missouri Governor. From her pro-life leadership in the State Senate to her Life is Precious Initiative today, Sarah Steelman is truly dedicated to representing all Missouri citizens, born and unborn. Sarah is a passionate advocate for women and unborn children and we are pleased to support her candidacy for Missouri Governor."
Susan B. Anthony List Candidate Fund endorsements are posted on the website, www.sba-listcf.org, which allows Susan B. Anthony List members to bundle contributions for endorsed candidates, access political updates about key political races, register to vote and engage in pro-life advocacy efforts. The SBA List Candidate Fund supports pro-life female candidates, as well as pro-life male candidates who run against pro-choice female candidates.
"Susan B. Anthony List members are eager to support dedicated pro-life heroines when they need it most," said Dannenfelser. "The consequences of disengagement are dire. The lives of women and their unborn babies are on the line, and the Susan B. Anthony List Candidate Fund is ready to defend them at the ballot box in Missouri and across the country."
As a Missouri State Senator, Sarah Steelman co- sponsored legislation to ban partial-birth abortion, sponsored the Adoption Awareness Law and sponsored legislation to create the Missouri Respect Life license plate. Her recently announced Life is Precious Initiative calls for a special session of the Missouri legislature to consider legislation to ban coercive abortion in Missouri. The initiative also calls for bans on sex-selection abortions and the abortions of unborn disabled children.
Sarah Steelman is a Republican candidate in the race to replace retiring Governor Matt Blunt (R). She will face Rep. Kenny Hulshof (R) in the Republican gubernatorial primary on August 5, 2008. The winner of the Republican primary will go on to face Democratic Attorney General Jay Nixon, who supports abortion rights, in the November general election.
The Susan B. Anthony List is a nationwide network of over 145,000 Americans, residing in all 50 states, dedicated to mobilizing, advancing, and representing pro-life women in politics. Its connected Candidate Fund increases the percentage of pro-life women in the political process.
