WASHINGTON, D.C. (LifeSiteNews) – A new ad released by Susan B. Anthony List (SBA List) and the Abortion Survivors Network features a woman who survived a failed late-term abortion, was adopted, and has a message for the U.S. Supreme Court ahead of December 1 oral arguments in the landmark case Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization: “My life mattered.”
Amy Miles is a wife and mother, a master’s level graduate, and occupational therapist who survived a late-term abortion at approximately 28 weeks in 1980, but like many abortion survivors, only in recent years did she learn the circumstances of her birth and receive detailed medical records. As a result of the abortion procedure, Amy sustained disabilities which brings her particular compassion to her life’s work with children. In sharing her story, she hopes to shed light on the trauma that abortion inflicts and promote the message that babies and mothers both deserve better.
PETITION UPDATE (12/16/2020) -
Operation Warp Speed—the HHS’s program to accelerate the development, manufacture, and distribution of COVID-19 therapeutics—has spent billions of our tax dollars to bring a COVID vaccine to market.
Now, the FDA has granted emergency approval to roll out the Pfizer/BioNTech vaccine, and people in the UK and the US are already receiving it.
Though the Pfizer vaccine was not designed or produced using aborted fetal cells, it was tested using the HEK293 fetal cell line to create humanized mice.
And, more unethical vaccines are reaching the finish line and are being funded and promoted by the HHS with our tax dollars.
We must continue to demand that this stop and that a fully ethical vaccine be brought to market instead!
SIGN and SHARE our petition with the Personhood Alliance to demand that the HHS stop using our money to support the grisly connection between abortion and biomedical science.
Operation Warp Speed—the HHS’s program to accelerate the development, manufacture, and distribution of COVID-19 therapeutics—is spending billions of our tax dollars to bring a COVID vaccine to market as quickly as possible.
Now, two of the Operation Warp Speed vaccines (one created by Pfizer/BioNTech and one created by Moderna/NIH) are nearing the finish line, soon to be applying for emergency FDA approval for mass distribution.
And, while LifeSite neither advocates for or against voluntary vaccination, there are several apparent problems with the vaccines being fast-tracked by HHS’ Operation Warp Speed.
First among the vaccines’ major problems: they were tested using aborted fetal cells.
Please SIGN and SHARE LifeSite’s urgent petition with the Personhood Alliance to demand that the HHS stop funding and promoting this unethical practice, and bring a fully ethical vaccine to market instead.
The production and testing of vaccines that use the remains of aborted children, regardless of when they were killed and at what point they were used in the process, is morally unacceptable and must be consistently opposed by the whole pro-life movement.
And, although the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines were not designed or produced using aborted fetal cells, the Personhood Alliance recently reported that the vaccines’ testing phases used the HEK293 aborted fetal cell line to create humanized mice.
This stomach-churning practice transferred immortalized cells from a child killed in 1973 into mouse embryos, so that when the mice were born, they had tiny human lungs that researchers infected with COVID to test the vaccines.
This type of Frankenscience has no place in a civilized society, certainly not one whose citizens are forced to fund it!
Sign our petition with the Personhood Alliance to demand that the HHS stop supporting the grisly connection between abortion and biomedical science.
We can make a difference if we raise our voices together, but we’re running out of time!
Thank you for SIGNING and SHARING this urgent petition today!

“Amy’s life has always mattered – both when she was subjected to a brutal abortion attempt, and now as a successful, professional, loving wife and mother,” said Melissa Ohden, founder of the Abortion Survivors Network, and a survivor herself. “Isn’t something wrong in our society when Amy, myself, and other abortion survivors are only alive today because an abortion failed to take our lives, and our government failed to protect us? Policies in our country should be life-affirming, not life-ending. It’s long past time that the humanity of preborn children be recognized in the law, and that support for women and their children be the norm, not the exception.”
SBA List President Marjorie Dannenfelser added:
“Amy’s witness speaks to the reality that abortion harms women and children – a truth the profit-driven abortion industry would rather keep secret – and the extremism of U.S. policy that allows late-term abortion on demand up to birth. Science tells us children in the womb are as human as you and me, with the capacity to feel pain by 15 weeks. When Americans understand the brutality of painful late abortions, they are eager to enact limits. It’s time to modernize our laws and protect babies and mothers.”
The ad is part of an overall $10 million campaign by SBA List to educate Americans about the stakes of the Dobbs late abortion case, in which the Court will address whether all pre-viability abortion limits are unconstitutional. The campaign includes $2.5 million in television and digital ads specifically around December 1 oral arguments. The ads highlight scientific advances that reveal the humanity of unborn children and the extremism of U.S. policy that allows unlimited late-term abortion up to birth.
The flurry of ad spots will air on broadcast and cable stations in the Washington, D.C. media market including CBS, ABC, NBC, Fox News, Newsmax, CNBC, and CNN networks. In addition, the ads will circulate via targeted text and digital ads in nine battleground states during the weeks of November 17 and November 29. The ads are part of an ongoing ad campaign and available for viewing at: modernizeourlaw.com.
Earlier this year, SBA List launched a nationwide campaign asserting the humanity of unborn children. Public opinion polls consistently show a strong majority of Americans reject pro-abortion extremism.
SBA List and its affiliates will spend $72 million during the 2021-2022 election cycle.
