EMILYs List Statement on Anti-Abortion Playbook for 2023 

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, anti-abortion extremist group Susan B. Anthony Pro-Life America announced their 2023 plans to target states to pass abortion restrictions — Florida, Nebraska, North Carolina and Virginia — continue to press Congress to take votes on anti-abortion policies, and require potential 2024 candidates to explicitly endorse a national abortion ban. In response, EMILYs List President Laphonza Butler released the following statement:

“It is infuriating — but not surprising — that extreme, anti-abortion organizations continue their crusade against reproductive freedom despite Americans resoundingly supporting the right to choose. They have their playbook and EMILYs List has our own: electing more Democratic pro-choice women to fight their dangerous agenda.”

EMILYs List, the nation’s largest resource for women in politics, works to elect Democratic pro-choice women up and down the ballot and across the country with a goal of fighting for our rights and our communities. Our work is centered around a fundamental vision: Run. Win. Change the World. EMILYs List has raised over $700 million in service to that vision and has helped Democratic women win competitive elections by recruiting and training candidates, supporting and helping build strong campaigns, researching the issues that impact women and families, running one of the largest independent expenditure campaigns for Democrats, and turning out women voters to the polls. Since our founding in 1985, we have helped elect the country’s first woman as vice president, 175 women to the House, 26 to the Senate, 20 governors, and over 1,500 women to state and local office. More than 40% of the candidates EMILYs List has helped elect to Congress have been women of color. Visit www.emilyslist.org for more information.
