WASHINGTON, Dec. 15 /Christian Newswire/ -- Today the president of the Susan B. Anthony List announced a nationwide grassroots campaign to fight the abortion industry bailout detailed in the recent report from over 50 abortion-rights organizations submitted to the Obama-Biden transition team last week:

"President-elect Barack Obama spoke of finding 'common ground' on abortion policy, but abortion advocacy groups clearly see an open door," said Susan B. Anthony List President Marjorie Dannenfelser. "After a decade of commonsense restrictions on taxpayer funding, the abortion industry thinks it deserves a bailout from President-Elect Obama. Today the Susan B. Anthony List launched its 'Stop the Abortion Bailout' campaign to mobilize thousands of activists across the country. Americans will send letters to their Senators with the goal of securing the 41 votes necessary to sustain a Senate filibuster of the abortion bailout. We look forward to delivering the votes Senator McConnell needs to ensure our hard-earned taxpayer dollars stay out of abortionists' coffers, especially since national abortion numbers are already on the decline."

Susan B. Anthony List activists can send letters to their Senators as part of the "Stop the Abortion Bailout" campaign at The goal of the campaign is to secure the 41 votes necessary to sustain a filibuster against measures promoting federal taxpayer funding of abortion. The Susan B. Anthony List will deliver letters to Senators and pass along the names of Americans opposing the abortion bailout to pro-life Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell.
