Pro-Life Bill Cassidy Wins U.S. Senate By A Landslide

Marjorie Dannenfelser, Susan B. Anthony List : Last night unborn babies were victorious yet again when pro-life Bill Cassidy defeated pro-abortion Senator Mary Landrieu – by a landslide!

As a doctor, Bill Cassidy has a unique understanding of the value and dignity of every human life. While he served in the U.S. House of Representatives, Congressman Cassidy was a consistent advocate for the unborn, and voted for the Pain Capable Unborn Child Protection Act. We look forward to seeing that legislation – the SBA List’s top legislative priority – be advanced by a pro-life Senate in the new year.

As you know, the SBA List’s partner, Women Speak Out PAC, was on the ground in the Bayou State starting in March, reaching out to pro-life voters unlikely to vote. Our field team of more than 200 pro-life activists worked tirelessly, going door-to-door to tell voters to truth about Senator Landrieu’s extreme abortion record.

Our team knocked on more than 190,325 doors and made more than 151,266 calls!

Pro-lifers had our work cut out for us this election cycle. We made incredible gains on Election Day last month, but the campaign wasn’t over until now.

And the Louisiana Senate race may have been the most important. Why? Because Senator Mary Landrieu actually represents herself as a pro-life Catholic.

Throughout her political career, Senator Landrieu has repeatedly sought to mislead pro-life voters about her record on abortion. She wanted to enjoy the reputation of a pro-life Senator while voting FOR taxpayer funded abortion and opposing compassionate, common sense legislation to protect babies who feel pain.

For years, Senator Landrieu got away with her double-life. Not anymore.

A recent New York Times video report cited abortion as “preeminent issue” accounting for the shift in Louisiana’s Catholic voters towards pro-life Republican candidates. Our pro-life canvassers (like this guy below) saw this on the ground. In fact, up to 91 percent of the voters we reached said they were less likely to vote for Senator Landrieu after learning about her pro-abortion record.

Pro-lifers came out strong for Rep. Bill Cassidy, a stalwart defender of unborn babies and their moms.

Remember, now it is time to leverage our electoral wins into legislative movement. Unborn children and their moms are counting on us to carry on the fight. Please keep praying and standing with us!
