WASHINGTON (BP)--The pro-life Susan B. Anthony List has targeted 12 members of Congress up for re-election in 2010 who it says are out of step with their constituents.

The organization's effort will include the use of television and radio ads, as well as telephone conferences and online campaigns, to inform citizens of the voting records of their senators and representatives. The campaign especially will address the congressional members' votes on funding of abortion.

The "Votes Have Consequences" project will seek to educate citizens in the states or congressional districts of the following Democrats: Sens. Michael Bennett of Colorado, Blanche Lincoln of Arkansas and Harry Reid of Nevada, as well as Reps. Alan Grayson of Florida, Debbie Halvorson of Illinois, Suzanne Kosmas of Florida, Frank Kratovil of Maryland, Walk Minnick of Idaho, Glenn Nye and Tom Perriello of Virginia, Carol Shea-Porter of New Hampshire and Harry Teague of New Mexico.

The effort "will shine the light of the truth on legislators who favor government-backed abortion in health care reform," Susan B. Anthony List President Marjorie Dannenfelser said in a written release Sept. 2. "You can't get further out of sync with the majority of America than by advancing abortion-on-demand with taxpayer dollars."
