The Abortion Olympics

Susan B. Anthony List
Hi Pro-life Friend —

Did you watch the Sochi Olympics at all?

If so, you know it was a pretty tough winter for Team USA. We left with only nine gold medals – coming in fourth place for the gold medal count.

It was a tough break – but here’s something tougher: If late abortion was an Olympic category, the U.S. would get a silver medal.

You see, we are 1 of 7 shameful countries to allow unrestricted, brutal late abortions after 20 weeks – that’s after the 5th month of pregnancy and the point at which research shows the baby feels pain.

Our research arm, the Charlotte Lozier Institute (CLI), compiled the report on international abortion laws which found that the U.S. is far outside the international norm – and in bad company. After investigating 199 countries with a population of a million or more, CLI found that:

  • The laws of 140 countries protect unborn babies to some extent.
  • Nearly sixty countries permit elective abortions but with some baby-protective limits.
  • The United States, Canada, China, North Korea, Vietnam, Singapore, and the Netherlands are the only 7 countries to allow elective abortions of unborn children who are twenty weeks and older.

If those 7 countries are ordered by population size, the U.S. gets a silver medal in the category of late abortions, outranked only by China.

Pro-life Friend, this is yet another reason why it is critical we ramp up our lobbying efforts to have the U.S. Senate vote on and pass the historic Pain Capable Unborn Child Protection Act and the advance similar legislation in the states.

Will you make your most generous donation right now to fund our life-saving efforts? Your donation will be matched dollar for dollar by generous friends of the SBA List (details below).

A silver medal for extremely permissive abortion laws is nothing to be proud of. We’ve got to get the CLI data and other research into the hands of Senators and urge them relentlessly to take up this important legislation.

The Pain Capable Unborn Child Protection Act would save the lives of more than 18,000 children per year.

>>>> Not only will your donation go towards working to save those 18,000 lives, it will also be DOUBLED. A generous couple – longtime friends of the SBA List – has offered to match every donation that comes in towards our efforts on this up to $50,000.

Please don’t miss this chance to have your donation doubled, Pro-life Friend.

Right now in the United States, the law permits elective abortions – even on babies more than halfway through pregnancy. According to the pro-abortion Guttmacher Institute (formerly the research arm of Planned Parenthood), 23 percent of U.S. abortionists will do these brutal abortions

At this late stage of pregnancy, abortions are carried out by either D&E (Dilation and Evacuation) abortion, where the baby’s arms and legs are broken off with manual force, or saline injection abortion in which the baby is stabbed with a needle and injected with saline solution, which burns the developing skin before killing the unborn child.

I’m sorry to be so graphic, Pro-life Friend, but this is the reality.

Will you help the Susan B. Anthony List fight back against this barbarity? We need your immediate donation right now in order to fund our efforts to pass this compassionate, life-saving legislation nationwide. 

Remember that thanks to the generosity of our friends, your gift will be doubled.  

The majority is on our side, Pro-life Friend. Poll after poll confirms that most Americans are simply horrified by our nations’ extremely permissive laws and support ending abortion after 20 weeks.

That’s why thirteen state legislatures have already voted on related legislation to protect 20 week babies. And as Emily told you last week – similar bills are already moving in 4 states. Your SBA List is involved in every fight, working to protect babies everywhere we can.

That’s why our generous friends – who wish to remain anonymous – offered to double every donation up to $50,000 in order to help us advance these lifesaving fetal pain bills.

Don’t miss this chance to have your donation DOUBLED, Pro-life Friend. Just $20, $40, $60, $100, or even $250 would make a huge impact on our ability to effectively lobby the U.S. Senate and state legislators in key states.

I look forward to keeping you updated in this fight. Thanks again for your generosity and partnership in our efforts to protect the unborn.

For Life,

Marjorie Dannenfelser
President, Susan B. Anthony List

P.S. If late abortion were an Olympic category, the U.S.A. would sadly win a silver medal. This is nothing to be proud of. In fact, our permissive abortion laws are simply barbaric. As Emily told you last week, your SBA List is involved on the ground in four states as well as in Washington working to pass legislation to protect babies after 20 weeks. In that late state of pregnancy, abortions are carried out by either one of two very brutal methods.  Your immediate donation will be DOUBLED – and will help us fund our efforts to pass lifesaving legislation!
