* Former GOP Congressman Bobby Schilling is pretty darned hardline on abortion, as this recent fundraising e-mail clearly shows…
Radical pro-abortion groups, including EMILY’s List—one of my opponent’s top financial contributors—are fighting to not only protect abortion, but to grow the abortion industry by leaps and bounds. Apparently claiming 1.2 million lives each year isn’t enough. EMILY’s List is fighting to increase access to third-term abortions, strike down parental notification laws, and increase taxpayer funding for abortion.
Folks, when you stop and think about it, EMILY’s List is downright disgusting. Their agenda is designed to promote young teenage girls getting third-term abortions paid for by the taxpayers without the parents ever finding out. That’s as radical as radical gets, and my opponent has pledged to stand with them on each and every issue.
EMILY’s List previously put me “on notice” because of my strong record on life, and that’s a badge of honor I wear proudly! Sorry, EMILY’s List, but genocide is not a right.
I stand with the unborn. I oppose all taxpayer-funded abortions, and I will continue to do everything in my power to protect life.
P.S.-My opponent has received hundreds of thousands of dollars from the radical pro-abortion lobby. Will you help us defeat her this November? Let’s stand for life together. Please chip in $25 to our campaign today!
Freshman Democrat Cheri Bustos’ campaign circulated the Schilling e-mail to their own e-mail list with a fundraising request: “Chip in $3 or whatever you can to help Cheri fight back against the nonsense and do what’s right for Illinois.”
Obviously, we can expect another rough and tumble race.
*** UPDATE *** From the Schilling campaign…
I saw your post on the pro-life e-mail we sent out last week.
I wanted to clarify Bobby’s position on the abortion issue. He is steadfastly pro-life. He also supports the “exceptions” — rape, incest, and when the mother’s life is at risk.
However, Cheri Bustos is incredibly extreme on abortion with no exceptions. Bustos has received hundreds of thousands of dollars from EMILY’s List. Last year she voted against the Pain Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, fighting to ensure that the government continues to subsidize abortions after 20 weeks.
Bustos highlighted the word “disgusting” when we were referring to EMILY’s List’s radical agenda.
So that begs a few questions:
Does Cheri Bustos think third-term abortion is not disgusting?
Does Cheri Bustos really believe parents shouldn’t be involved in their teenager’s crisis pregnancy?
Does Cheri Bustos really believe a baby isn’t alive at eight or nine months?
And does she support legalized, subsidized abortion up until the last week of the pregnancy?
These are simple questions she could answer. So far she has refused to. If she supports no exceptions, how is she anything but a radical pro-abortion extremist?
