WASHINGTON, April 19 Today, Family Research Council Action PAC announced plans to raise and spend $500,000 to target the districts of 20 Democratic incumbents who voted for President Obama's abortion-funding health care bill.
"There are good reasons why organizations like ours decided to go the extra mile and create a political action committee as another arrow in its quiver," said Connie Mackey, President of FRC Action PAC. "The thousands of families that we represent are more energized than ever to replace these so-called 'pro-life' Democrats who voted for a health care bill that for the first time in three decades uses taxpayer funds for abortion on demand.
"As pro-life and pro-family voters, we must work together to change the Congress, state governments and ultimately the White House in 2012. We cannot afford to put hard earned dollars into campaigns of people who 'grow in office' or cannot see their way under the pressure of party politics. It's time to replace this Congress, repeal the government takeover of health care and restore our Constitutional freedoms.
"FRC Action PAC has spent many months researching those races we see as vulnerable and that will have pro-life, pro-family candidates to fill the void," concluded Mackey.
