“As a strongly pro-life Democrat in a party increasingly hostile to values shared by most Americans, Pastor Chris Butler is a profile in courage and we are proud to endorse him for Congress,” said Hon. Marilyn Musgrave, SBA List’s vice president of government affairs. “Far too many Democratic politicians in Washington have lost their way, pushing to enshrine abortion on demand through birth with no limits, paid for by taxpayers, in national law – an agenda millions of rank-and-file Democrats in ‘blue’ states and districts nationwide reject. If members don’t toe the line on this divisive platform, they risk being kicked out. But Pastor Chris understands protecting children in the womb from lethal violence is about human rights and should not be a partisan issue. His voice and perspective are sorely needed. He will be a champion of the vulnerable and the marginalized, standing with both unborn children and their mothers. We urge Illinoisans to support Pastor Chris as he seeks to bring common sense back to Congress and the Democratic Party.”

The Susan B. Anthony List is a network of 900,000 pro-life Americans nationwide, dedicated to ending abortion by electing national leaders and advocating for laws that save lives, with a special calling to promote pro-life women leaders. Marjorie Dannenfelser and a group of pro-life women founded SBA List in 1992 as the political arm of the pro-life movement. Named after the influential pro-life suffragette, Susan B. Anthony List seeks to embody the spirit of their namesake through their leadership within the pro-life movement. They work cooperatively to meet the pro-life movement’s need to maximize election outcomes, and to enhance policy research and education for policymakers and the public. SBA List combines politics with policy, investing heavily in voter education to ensure that pro-life Americans know where their lawmakers stand on protecting the unborn, and in issue advocacy, advancing pro-life laws through direct lobbying and grassroots campaigns.
