Pro-Life Group, SBA-List Computers Seized as evidence in suit against ObamaCare supporter
By Royce Hood
Today I received a disturbing email from the SBA-list – stating that their computers had been seized.
The SBA-list or Susan B. Anthony List is dedicated to Advancing, Mobilizing and Representing Pro-Life Women. Specifically the organization is dedicated to electing candidates and pursuing policies that will reduce and ultimately end abortion.(1)
In an email to supporters, the SBA-List President, Marjorie Dannenfelser said the following,
Last week, SBA List’s lawsuit involving former Congressman — and ObamaCare supporter — Steve Driehaus heated up when many of the staffers at the Susan B. Anthony List had their computers seized as evidence. I hope they look carefully because they’ll find tons of information revealing an organization that is unapologetically exercising its First Amendment rights to fight for the soul of pro-life America.
The SBA-List has been locked in lengthy lawsuit against former Congressman Steve Driehaus since 2010. During the 2010 elections the SBA-List purchased a billboard advertisement int he district of Rep. Driehaus of Ohio that showed a photo of Driehaus and said, “Shame on Steve Driehaus! Driehaus voted FOR taxpayer-funded abortion.” The sign referred to Driehaus’s vote in favor of ObamaCare.(2)
Driehaus lost financial backing of the DCCC (Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee) and lost the election to Republican Steve Chabot, (52% to 45%). (3)
After roller-coaster ride of legal and political maneuvering Driehaus filed a law suit against the SBA-List claiming the group causes his “loss of livelihood” by “defaming” him. Before the suit the ACLU actually filed a brief on behalf of the SBA-List in support of the SBA List’s right to freedom of speech.(4)
Marjorie Dannenfelser continued in her email,
Too many politicians try to hide the truth. No politician, bureaucracy, or court should have the power to silence the right of citizens to criticize the votes of their elected representatives. This lawsuit is nothing more than a cowardly attempt to hide a vote for ObamaCare behind a panel of free speech regulators. No matter how they try to spin it, the facts are undisputedly on our side — ObamaCare provides for taxpayer funding for abortions and a vote for ObamaCare is a pro-abortion vote. This isn’t semantics; votes do have consequences. And pro-abortion politicians are fighting to keep America from learning the painful truth – that by passing ObamaCare our government is subsidizing the largest expansion of abortion in our lifetime.
