Both po­lit­i­cal par­ties seek to woo the elu­sive un­de­cided vot­ers, a phe­nom­e­non that pro-life fans watch with keen in­ter­est. In some races, more un­de­cided vot­ers iden­tify them­selves as pro-life than pro choice, a fac­tor which could sway close Se­nate races in states like Arkansas, Louisiana and North Carolina. New poll find­ings from the Susan B. An­thony List, for ex­am­ple, find that 20 per­cent of the vot­ers in the Tar Heel State are un­de­cided about a choice be­tween in­cum­bent Demo­cratic Sen. Kay Ha­gan and Repub­li­can Thom Til­lis. Out of that num­ber, 21 per­cent are pro-life, 14 per­cent pro-choice.

“Se­na­tor Kay Ha­gan is an abor­tion rad­i­cal whose stances in support of tax­payer funded abor­tion and late term abor­tion after five months are deeply un­pop­u­lar,” says Mar­jorie Dan­nen­felser, pres­i­dent of the afore­men­tioned List, an or­ga­ni­za­tion de­voted to elect­ing pro-life can­di­dates.

“A sig­nif­i­cant por­tion of pro-life vot­ers are still un­de­cided,” she says, adding that the List has now part­nered with the po­lit­i­cal ac­tion com­mit­tees of Women Speak Out and Cam­paign for Amer­i­can Val­ues,both pro-life and val­ues driven.
