WASHINGTON, June 1 /Christian Newswire/ -- Today, the Susan B. Anthony List, a national pro-life organization, launched a one-week $20,000 independent expenditure campaign highlighting the strong pro-life leadership record of Republican candidate Cecile Bledsoe in Arkansas' third congressional district. SBA List President Marjorie Dannenfelser said of the efforts:

    "Cecile Bledsoe is a dedicated pro-life leader with a history of passionate advocacy for women and unborn children in Arkansas and we know that she will bring that same passion to the House of Representatives. Susan B. Anthony List members are eager to support dedicated pro-life heroines when they need it most. With just ten pro-life women in the House of Representatives, now more than ever we need Cecile's pro-woman, pro-life leadership in Congress."
 
Below is the script of the radio ad:
 
    Life is precious.  And no life is more vulnerable, more innocent, than an unborn child.  It's why Cecile Bledsoe has a perfect voting record with Arkansas Right to Life.  It's why she's been a leader in the Arkansas Senate fighting for unborn children.  It's why Bledsoe sponsored legislation that required mothers seeking abortions be told about fetal development, and options for adoption.  And it's why Cecile Bledsoe led the fight to outlaw gruesome, partial birth abortions...

    With Washington politicians voting to use our tax dollars to pay for abortions... America and Arkansas have never needed leaders like her more.

    Cecile Bledsoe. The right choice for Congress in the June 8th Republican primary.

In addition to radio ads, the SBA List will place two rounds of automated calls, reaching 78,000 registered pro-life voters in AR-03.

As a State Senator in Arkansas, Cecile Bledsoe sponsored the Partial Birth Abortion Ban and the Right to Know bill. She has a 100% pro-life voting record with Arkansas Right to Life.  Arkansas' runoff primary election is scheduled for June 8th, when Cecile Bledsoe will face Steve Womack for the Republican nomination.

The Susan B. Anthony List plans to spend $6 million on voter education in the midterm elections, including $3 million on key Senate races, $1 million in bundled direct candidate contributions from SBA List members and $1 million on its plan to target "pro-life" Democrats who voted for abortion funding in the health care bill. 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.
