Political action committees (PACs) are raising millions of dollars for candidates during this election cycle. One of these PACS is Emily's List.

If you look online you will discover that the Mission of Emily's List is "To build a progressive America by electing pro-choice Democratic women to office. "

By pro-choice, Emily's List means absolutely pro-choice! In 1998 Emily's List helped propel Arkansas candidate Blanche Lincoln to the U.S. Senate. A year later she was dropped like a hot coal because she voted in favor of Rick Santorum's Senate bill to ban the barbaric, late-term abortion procedure known as "partial birth" abortion.

A survey taken this year by the Marist Institute for Public Opinion indicated that seventy-nine percent of Americans, including both those who are pro-life and pro-choice, believe that abortions after the first three months of pregnancy should be illegal.

Emily's List supports Cheri Bustos in her attempt to unseat Illinois 17th District Congressman Bobby Schilling. Since this organization backs only female candidates who defend abortion from conception through the entire gestation period, do you really want to contribute to Cheri's campaign or vote for her? What does your conscience tell you? It's your choice.
