.- The Susan B. Anthony List has launched a campaign effort to educate Hispanic voters about what it considers to be the pro-life qualifications of California U.S. Senate candidate Carly Fiorina.
Marjorie Dannenfelser, president of the Susan B. Anthony List, said that Latino voters are an increasing percentage of voters and polls show an âoverwhelming majorityâ of them consider themselves to be pro-life.
âWe've been waiting for Carly Fiorina since the day Barbara Boxer was elected. Carly embraces and advances the rights of women and unborn children, following in the footsteps of the earliest women in politics. This is important to all Californians and especially to the Hispanic community," Dannenfelser commented in a Tuesday press release.
The Republican Fiorinaâs Democratic opponent, Sen. Barbara Boxer has long been a leading advocate of permissive abortion laws.
The Susan B. Anthony List reported that the $100,000 effort will include a bus tour to predominantly Hispanic areas as well as a bilingual Google ad campaign targeting California Latino voters concentrated in eight congressional districts.
Organizers claim the Google ad campaign has the potential to reach three million Hispanic voters.
Fiorinaâs campaign website describes her as pro-life and says she believes life begins at conception. It also cites her âAâ rating from the National Right to Life Committee (NRLC). However, according to the Los Angeles Times, she supports legal abortion in cases of rape, incest, and when the motherâs life is endangered.
The candidate supports the death penalty. She considers border security a priority in addressing illegal immigration, while supporting an âeffectiveâ visa program and temporary worker program.
Fiorinaâs website says she believes marriage is âbetween a man and a woman.â She reportedly supported Proposition 8, the ballot measure which restored the legal definition of marriage to be between a man and a woman.
Dannenfelser said that the Susan B. Anthony Listâs efforts aim to help pro-life Latinos understand there is âno greater contrastâ between Fiorina and Boxer, deeming the latterâs âpro-abortion agendaâ to be âincreasingly unpopular.â
"Paired with her consistently pro-abortion voting record, Boxer's support for the federal health care bill including taxpayer-funded abortion should tell Latino voters everything they need to know about which candidate does and does not represent their views," Dannenfelser added.
The Susan B. Anthony Listâs effort is conducted in conjunction with the Latino Partnership for Conservative Principlesâ $1 million effort.
