Susan B. Anthony List

 

Susan B. Anthony List

DigiPo/Advocacy Group Investigation

 

The Susan B. Anthony List is a right-wing, anti-abortion[1] organization that  promotes legislation and funding priorities that reduce access to abortion. Current efforts focus on defunding Planned Parenthood clinics

 

Funding and Membership

 

Funding comes from multiple sources, but a large portion of the funding comes indirectly from the Koch Brothers, via the Center to Protect Patient Rights.

 

 

Name Controversy

 

Numerous people have objected to the use of the Susan B. Anthony name

 

The primary documentary evidence for Anthony’s "opposition to Restellism," a 19th-century euphemism for abortion, are a few diary entries; a newspaper editorial; and the fact that her short-lived feminist newspaper, the Revolution, declined advertisements for "quack medicines" including abortifacients.  (source)
