WATCH: Pro-Life Group Releases New Ad Supporting Trump

As we enter the final hours of the 2016 campaign, the pro-life Susan B. Anthony List is making one last effort to nudge swing state voters toward Donald Trump.

In a new online ad released on Friday and currently running in Florida, Missouri, North Carolina and Ohio, SBA List highlights Trump’s criticism of Hillary Clinton’s extreme position on late-term abortion in the final presidential debate last month:

To Overcome Planned Parenthood Juggernaut, Pro-Lifers Must Support Our Cause!

Pro-life groups are in the final stages of reaching voters as early voting continues across the country. On Monday, the Susan B. Anthony List (SBA List) released new numbers for their grassroots campaign, announcing that more than 700 pro-life activists are working with them and their partner PAC, Women Speak Out, knocking on over 1 million doors over the 2016 election cycle.

Groups like SBA List are working overtime to reach voters — pro-life and pro-choice alike — while being out-spent by the abortion lobby.

This cycle, Planned Parenthood has spent over $30 million and in the final run of the cycle plans to have 1,500 paid staffers and 3,500 volunteers knocking on 500,000 doors in swing states such as New Hampshire, Wisconsin, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Nevada and North Carolina. This is the same abortion giant that receives over $500 million from tax-payers every year that covers their “preventative” measures such as condoms, STD testing, contraceptives, etc. While Planned Parenthood cannot spend taxpayer dollars on politics, money is fungible and resources they receive from the federal government free up other resources for politics. This gives them the opportunity to use their abortion proceeds and donor dollars to work to elect and defend pro-abortion politicians who will protect their federal monies and their unregulated abortion practices.

Over the last 40 years, pro-lifers have countered this effort, forming organizations such as National Right to Life and the Susan B. Anthony List to go up against the pro-abortion political strategy by electing pro-life leaders and supporting them and holding them accountable while in Washington, D.C.

Hey, RedState? Quit Viciously Attacking Good Conservatives.

I have a lot of respect for Leon Wolf and all the folks over at RedState. I really do. But I made the decision months ago to ignore their website — at least until Wednesday, November 9th — when they became so stubbornly committed to the #NeverTrump movement that they chose to support Gary Johnson, a pro-abortion, anti-religious freedom statist who is not remotely conservative.

Yuck.

It’s one thing to oppose Trump on a principled level, which I can understand. Several writers for The Pulse 2016 have been vocally #NeverTrump, including Maggie Gallagher, Michael Lucchese, and others. But attacking people — good people — who are trying to do their best to advance the conservative movement is beyond ridiculous for an ostensibly “conservative” website.

Enough, RedState. Stop it.

Kimberly Ross went on a vicious tirade today against Marjorie Dannenfelser, president at Susan B. Anthony List and a frequent contributor at The Pulse 2016, after news broke that Dannenfelser would be heading up Trump’s pro-life coalition:

In no way is Trump trustworthy on abortion or any other issue. He has shown little natural pro-life inclination since January. The only thing that has changed is he has moved up to the front of the pack.

Dannenfelser and others just don’t want to get left behind.

I truly believe the pro-life platform is a foundation on which to base other conservative ideas. Believing life is precious from conception through old age molds a person’s worldview.

Trump Makes Several Key Pro-Life Commitments, Launches Pro-Life Coalition

Donald Trump is doing everything he can to make it clear to the pro-life movement: “I’m With You.”

This week Trump tapped Marjorie Dannenfelser, president of the Susan B. Anthony List and a frequent contributor to The Pulse 2016, to head up his pro-life coalition.

Politico reports:

Dannenfelser will seek to mobilize “national and statewide anti-abortion leaders, with a particular emphasis on people in battleground states,” to activate their “spheres of influence” in support of the Trump campaign, said SBA List spokeswoman Mallory Quigley.

The addition of Dannenfelser, a onetime sharp critic of Trump, to a leadership role on behalf of his campaign is the latest sign that Trump has consolidated support from socially conservative leaders who were initially skeptical of him.

Susan B. Anthony List released Trump’s letter to pro-life leaders this morning. In addition to sharply criticizing Hillary Clinton for her radically pro-abortion views, Trump also committed to pursuing several pro-life goals if elected president:

Hillary Clinton not only supports abortion on-demand for any reason, but she’d take it a step further: she wants to force the taxpayers to pay for abortions by repealing the bi-partisan Hyde Amendment. Hillary Clinton also supports abortion until an hour before birth. And she will only appoint Supreme Court justices who share this view.

She doesn’t even try to hide her extremism. When asked on Meet the Press when unborn children have constitutional rights, Clinton bluntly responded, “The unborn person doesn’t have constitutional rights.” She is so committed to this view that she proclaimed in a speech that “religious beliefs… have to be changed” in order to advance her abortion agenda.

WATCH: Pro-Life Group Hammers Hillary’s Extremism in Powerful Ad

“For somebody to say that a baby at 20 weeks doesn’t have the right to live, I want them to see Micah…”

In a new TV ad, pro-life group Susan B. Anthony List confronts Hillary Clinton’s extreme position on abortion by telling the story of Micah, a premature baby.

At 22 weeks, Micah was delivered. But, with the help of medical professionals, he survived, and now is thriving.

Hillary Clinton’s abortion policies, if enacted, would endanger lives like Micah’s, driving home the need for pro-lifers to push back against the left-wing abortion radicalism of the Democratic nominee.

Walker Clarifies His Terrible, Horrible Interview on Life

Frank Cannon was the first to catch the terrible blunder Scott Walker made in his Sunday interview on abortion, where he seemed to suggest he was powerless and impotent in the face of the Supreme Court’s abortion rulings.  The Walker campaign appears to realize that this, unlike the contrived media about his alleged gaffes on evolution etc., was a real blunder.

He has released an open letter promising to fight to protect life and specifically committing to support the 20 week abortion ban, both in Wisconsin and federally. Kudos to the Susan B. Anthony List gals for posting the letter and to Gov. Walker for recognizing he can do something about abortion in this country: he can support a ban on abortions after the fifth month in pregnancy, a ban that SBA has spearheaded.
