.- The Susan B. Anthony list has begun airing a radio ad in Northern Michigan and in Pennsylvania thanking Rep. Bart Stupak and Rep. Joe Pitts for their courageous efforts to exclude publicly funded abortions from the house health care bill.

This fall, Representatives Bart Stupak (D-MI) and Joe Pitts (D-PA) co-sponsored an amendment to the House health care bill which excludes government funding for abortion and for health plans that cover abortion. Against all expectations, the Stupak-Pitts amendment  passed the house 240-194. 

Despite recent polls that demonstrate that the majority of Americans do not support government money going toward abortion, pro-choice advocates have reacted negatively to the Stupak-Pitts amendment and sought to tear down Stupak and his pro-life allies.  According to the SBA list, the abortion advocates have even resorted to sending coat hangers to Democrats who supported the amendment. 

"Congressman Bart Stupak is a courageous pro-life Democrat in the mold of former Governor Bob Casey," said Susan B. Anthony List President Marjorie Dannenfelser. "Susan B. Anthony List members are thankful for his partnership with Congressman Joe Pitts to ensure that health care reform legislation is not used to usher in massive government-funding for abortion."

Therefore, the SBA List has aired radio ads funded by nationwide grassroots donations in  Stupak's and Pitts' districts. The ads thank the representatives for their dedication and pro-life efforts. They also attempt to get the word out so that more people will be aware of what exactly Stupak and Pitts did.

“This holiday season, the people of Northern Michigan can be thankful that they are represented by a principled and effective congressman: Bart Stupak. Congressman Stupak had the courage to lead the fight in the House of Representatives to stop federal dollars from being spent for abortions. We can trust Bart Stupak to protect unborn children and women. And for that, we can be thankful. ” reads the radio ad.
