American Bridge and NARAL Pro-Choice America investigated SBA List and what we found was shocking: SBA List is planning a massive state-by-state political operation dedicated to advancing politicians who share their extreme views on birth control and sex.
The first step in fighting back is getting the word out about SBA List's plans. That's why we're starting a petition telling SBA List: "You can't control women's bodies."
Add your name to the petition and share it on social media to spread the word about SBA List's plans.

Tell Susan B Anthony List: You Can't Control Women's Bodies
I support a woman’s right to choose. And I oppose extremist special interest groups that want to come into my state and pressure our chosen representatives into imposing an agenda that infringes on that right.
The real Susan B. Anthony devoted her life’s work to fighting to give women more choices, from the home to the ballot box. Today, "Susan B. Anthony List" has appropriated her name to push an archaic worldview that women can't make decisions about their own bodies.
Susan B. Anthony (SBA) List does not represent the best interests of women. One of their top legislative priorities is defunding Planned Parenthood, threatening access to critical health care for women across the country. During the 2012 election, SBA List came to the defense of Todd Akin, who said “If it’s a legitimate rape, the female body has ways to try to shut that whole thing down,” and Richard Mourdock, who claimed that pregnancies resulting from rape were “something that God intended to happen.”
Now, SBA List has stated their intention to use their support of Ken Cuccinelli in Virginia’s 2013 gubernatorial race as a “proving ground” for their 2014 election efforts. The goal is to advance SBA List President Marjorie Dannenfelser’s vision of an anti-choice “political machine” akin to the National Rifle Association (NRA). SBA List would use their disproportionate influence to back candidates like Akin, Mourdock, and Cuccinelli who share their radical views on issues like birth control and sex.
I will not let my voice be drowned out by extreme special interests. I will not stand for Susan B. Anthony List trying to control women's bodies.
