Emily's List Marred by 'Backwards-Looking' Views of Women

WASHINGTON, (christiansunite.com) -- Today, the Susan B. Anthony List criticized a new campaign by the pro-abortion group, EMILY's List, called "Sarah Palin Doesn't Speak for Me." EMILY's List called pro-life female candidates "backwards-looking" and criticized Gov. Palin's support of authentic women running for office.

"EMILY's List is running scared -- and it shows," said Susan B. Anthony List president Marjorie Dannenfelser. "Clearly, in this 'Year of the Pro-Life Woman,' which Sarah Palin helped make possible, women have found their political voices. Pro-life 'Mama Grizzlies' represent the majority of women across the country."

The Susan B. Anthony List's latest bus tour, which just returned from 23 cities throughout Indiana, Ohio and Pennsylvania, confirms that women are rejecting the abortion-centered women's movement model. A Rasmussen poll this week shows that 53 percent of women think that "abortions are too easy to get." The Susan B. Anthony List's candidates represent this majority of women.

"We are looking for women leaders who affirm the best in women -- who seek to include rather than exclude the rest of humanity as we find our fulfillment," said Dannenfelser. "EMILY's List is busy perpetuating what it purports to abhor: using women candidates with whom they disagree as punching bags. On the eve of the 90th anniversary of women's suffrage, the SBA List calls upon EMILY's List to come to grips with reality. Our academic panel next week, August 26th at the Yale Club on that anniversary will explore the roots of why Susan B. Anthony has influenced our views and why EMILY's List does not."

Since the 1992 so-called "Year of the Woman," the Susan B. Anthony List has elected 75 pro-life women to the U.S. House of Representatives, seven to the U.S. Senate and seven more to other statewide offices. At its breakfast event in May, Sarah Palin rallied the pro-life "Mama Grizzly" female candidates.

The Susan B. Anthony List is a nationwide network of over 280,000 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.
