Susan B. Anthony (SBA) List, one of the country’s top pro-life organizations, offered its endorsement to Republican J.D. Vance in the U.S. Senate race in Ohio.
Vance, who edged out his Republican opponents in a crowded GOP primary, will face Democrat Tim Ryan in the November midterm election.
“J.D. Vance is a courageous and thoughtful pro-life advocate who has what it takes to defeat extremist Tim Ryan,” said SBA List Candidate Fund President Marjorie Dannenfelser. “J.D.’s life story is one of perseverance and success over adversity, yet he has not lost touch with his roots or his values. He knows the real-world struggles of hardworking families as well as the threats to innocent life coming from Washington. Today’s Democrat elites have forgotten their party once fought for the ‘little guy.’ After two decades in politics, Tim Ryan is no different. Ryan refuses to name a single protection for unborn children he supports, claiming it’s just too complex to figure out. J.D. will bring creativity and common sense to the Senate and stand up to Biden and Schumer so every child has the chance to live the American dream.”
When announcing their support of Vance, the group blasted Ryan over his refusal to support any limits on abortion.
Ohio Senate candidate @TimRyan couldn't tell @BretBaier a SINGLE restriction on abortion he would support.
The vast majority of Americans REJECT his extremism:

“SBA List has advocated for life and ending abortion in America for many years,” added Vance. “I am honored to have their support and will continue to fight for our shared beliefs and efforts protecting the unborn, innocents and all life when I get to the U.S. Senate.”
During the primary, the candidate also picked up an endorsement from Ohio Right to Life, a grassroots pro-life organization in the state.
Vance has repeatedly pronounced his unwavering dedication to the issue.
