Report: Pro-Life Group Will Seek to Defeat McCaskill in 2018

After helping a pro-life Democrat win a primary against a pro-choice Democrat in Illinois this week, the pro-life Susan B. Anthony (SBA) List is turning its focus to defeating vulnerable Senate Democrats, Newsweek reported on Thursday.

SBA List’s efforts will include trying to oust Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-MO), the nation’s most vulnerable Senate Democrat.

The group will also go after some other more conservative Democratic senators on abortion, like Missouri Senator Claire McCaskill and North Dakota Senator Heidi Heitkamp. Both are Democrats in red states who have spoken out in favor of some abortion restrictions or voted for anti-choice legislation during their time in office. Heitkamp came out against late-term abortions during her 2012 Senate campaign, but later voted to filibuster a bill that would have made them illegal. McCaskill, meanwhile, has said she’d support a ban on “partial-birth abortion,” a common second trimester procedure known as dilation and evacuation, but has drawn ire from SBA List for voting against a 20-week ban.

NTK Network noted in February that SBA List would go after McCaskill in digital ads for her vote against a 20-week abortion ban.
