Chuck Morse Makes Clear That He Will “Carry… Out in This Country” Nationwide Abortion Ban

During the NH GOP Senate debate hosted by New England College tonight, U.S Senate candidate Chuck Morse proudly bragged about receiving an endorsement from the Susan B. Anthony List, an extreme anti-choice group that wants to ban abortion nationwide. Morse specifically said that he won the endorsements because the group is confident that he will “carry… out in this country” their agenda of passing a nationwide abortion ban. Watch the clip here. “Once again, Chuck Morse has made it absolutely clear that if he were in the U.S. Senate, he would be a yes vote for a nationwide abortion ban,” said New Hampshire Democratic Party spokesperson Gates MacPherson. Morse said, “You know, I got a 100% rating from Cornerstone. I got endorsed nationally by Susan B Anthony. There's no question where I stand on the issue,” and added, “There's nothing clearer than the fact that I got a 100% rating from Cornerstone and that Susan B Anthony endorsed me, on this stage, to make sure that I carry that out in this country. BACKGROUND ON THE SUSAN B. ANTHONY LIST: Susan B Anthony List Website: “SBA List's Mission Is To End Abortion.” “SBA List's mission is to end abortion by electing national leaders and advocating for laws that save lives, with a special calling to promote pro-life women leaders.” [Susan B Anthony List, About, accessed 12/23/21] SBA List President Called Rape Exceptions For Abortions “Abominable.” ‘Susan B. Anthony List president Marjorie Dannenfelser, who moderated the press conference and whose organization has been a prominent backer of the 20-week ban in its current form, said that she believes that rape exceptions are ‘abominable.’ ‘I agree. I agree that the rape exception is abominable,’ she told LifeSiteNews. ‘I also know that with it, we were able to move forward, and we have the potential of saving 15,000 to 18,000 children a year. No one should give up or give over a rape exception unless there is simply no chance of saving those other children. I really believe that.’’ [Right Wing Watch, 6/12/15] When Asked About A Federal Abortion Ban, Dannenfelser Said “It Is Our Job To Be As Ambitious As We Can.” “MS. CALDWELL: Do you think that Congress should pass a federal ban on abortion or a federal six-week or twelve-week– MS. DANNENFELSER: My answer– MS. CALDWELL: –or whatever it is?MS. DANNENFELSER: Yeah. My answer is the same. It is our job to be as ambitious as we can be in building consensus in every legislature. The Congress is a legislature also.” [Washington Post, 6/27/22] When Asked If Outlawing Abortion Was The Ultimate Goal, Dannenfelser Said “Now The Door Is Open, So Of Course We Will Walk Through It.” “HOST: You attribute part of your success to compromise — promoting 20-week limits — but surely your ultimate goal isn’t compromise? It’s to outlaw abortion across the United States? You’ve spoken privately with possible Republican presidential contenders, including Trump, about a federal ban. DANNENFELSER: Now the door is open, so of course we will walk through it. After nearly 50 years, this is an opportunity to allow the people to speak through their laws through their elected representatives. And so every legislature in the country, including Congress, is now entrusted with this really heavy moral weight to get it right. And so we will be as ambitious for life and for mothers in every single state as consensus will allow.” [LA Times, 6/24/22] SBA’s President Said Exceptions For Rape And Incest Are “Just Wrong.” “DANNENFELSER: Regrettably, there is a rape and incest exception. It was the only way it was going to be allowed onto the floor by the leadership. I mean, I say regrettable. I really mean, any child at any stage should be protected from conception -- and certainly at 20 weeks. Excepting anyone -- It's just wrong.” [Caffeinated Thoughts Radio Podcast, 5/16/15] SBA’s President Said Doctors Who Provide Abortion In States With Trigger Bans Should Be Prosecuted Because They Are “Knowingly Circumventing The Law.” “ANCHOR: Let me ask you about the trigger laws that would effectively, in about half the states across the country, would go into effect almost immediately if Roe were to be overturned. We're looking at a map right now. Are you concerned about what will become a patchwork? And I guess the follow up question to that is, what do you think the punishment should be for someone who performs an abortion or who has an abortion in these states? DANNENFELSER: A doctor a doctor who performs an abortion or a person who mails chemical abortions through the mail is knowingly circumventing the law.” [MSNBC, 5/3/22] (VIDEO)
