Eagle Forum Opposes the Misuse of Phyllis Schlafly’s Name
The so-called “Phyllis Schlafly’s Eagle PAC” has endorsed a pro-abortion congressional candidate in Wyoming and is spending $55,000 for the election of Rod Miller. Ed Martin created this Super PAC using Phyllis Schlafly’s name on the day she died (September 5, 2016). It is shocking that Martin would use the name and work of a great pro-life leader to promote abortion. Phyllis Schlafly would never have endorsed any candidate who favored abortion rights. Ed Martin should be ashamed to be trading on her name while undermining her legacy.
“I am appalled that this is the third time that Ed Martin has misused my mother’s good name to oppose pro-life congresswomen. Ed Martin should close his Super PAC that has nothing to do with Phyllis Schlafly,” said Anne Schlafly Cori, chairman of Eagle Forum.
Eagle Forum has no connection to Ed Martin or Phyllis Schlafly’s Eagle PAC. Martin was suspended from Eagle Forum by a court order nearly two years ago. Eagle Forum was founded by Phyllis Schlafly in 1975 and has always stood for conservative, pro-family principles, including the sanctity of life. Eagle Forum PAC has no connection to the Super PAC run by Ed Martin. Eagle Forum PAC is proud of the principled conservatives that we have endorsed. See our candidate questionnaire.
