National Pro-Life Organization Endorses Sen. Cassidy for Reelection
BATON ROUGE—Today, the pro-life organization Susan B. Anthony (SBA) List’s Candidate Fund PAC endorsed U.S. Senator Bill Cassidy, M.D. (R-LA) for reelection to the U.S. Senate, calling him “a bold voice for life.” Cassidy, who has an “A” rating on the SBA List’s National Pro-Life Scorecard, has been a leader in Congress defending the lives of unborn children and opposing the Left’s agenda to expand the practice of abortion.
“As one of three physicians in the Senate, Dr. Bill Cassidy is a dauntless champion for life,” said the Honorable Marilyn Musgrave, SBA List’s vice president of government affairs. “Dr. Cassidy has spent his career selflessly caring for others, serving the most vulnerable, and improving the lives of thousands of Louisianans – particularly children and the disadvantaged. He speaks with authority in refuting the lies of the abortion industry and advocating real health care. Unlike his extreme pro-abortion Democratic opponents, he is unashamedly pro-life and stands with the people of Louisiana, who have worked to enact common sense pro-life policies that protect women and babies from the profit-seeking abortion industry. He called the recent Supreme Court decision striking down Louisiana’s pro-life admitting privileges law ‘a strike against life,’ and we at SBA List could not agree more. We know Dr. Cassidy will continue to be a bold voice for life upon his re-election, and we are proud to support him.”
“I thank SBA List for their endorsement and will continue to represent Louisiana’s pro-life values in the U.S. Senate,” said Dr. Cassidy. “As a doctor, I know every unborn baby is a life deserving a future, and as your Senator, I will continue to fight for our unborn children and do everything I can to ensure your taxpayer dollars never fund the abortion industry.”
Senator Cassidy has introduced several pieces of legislation to protect the sanctity of human life, including the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act that requires medical services be provided for babies who survive abortions and the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act which would ban abortions after 20 weeks when babies can feel pain inside the womb. Democrats blocked both of these bills from passing during a vote on the Senate floor this year.
