CINCINNATI, Oct. 9 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- John Thune, U.S. Senator from South Dakota, has added his name to the list of candidates and office holders who have signed a pledge promising to support "no taxpayer funding of abortions."

The pledge is featured at, a website launched by Common Sense Issues, Inc., a 501(c)(4) grassroots citizens organization dedicated to pro-Life, limited government principles.

The site features a simple pledge that every federal officeholder can sign promising no taxpayer funding of abortions – a position with which a super-majority of Americans agrees.  If an elected official or candidate is willing to make this promise:

  • They can be trusted to cut spending when it comes to truly tough choices if they are willing to make this easy choice;
  • They understand that protecting and valuing life – every life – is foundational to who we are, how we treat one another, and our very freedom;
  • They choose to address the skyrocketing government debt threatening America; and,
  • They believe it is their duty to protect the right of Americans, whose faith and conscience condemns the taking of life, to oppose funding with their tax dollars the very act they abhor.

Citizens can download the pledge and ask U.S. House and U.S. Senate Members and candidates everywhere to sign it. The pledge can also be easily signed electronically in a matter of seconds.  The website has an easy-to-use map allowing citizens to click on a state and see what officials or candidates have signed the pledge. There is also a "blood money" tab where voters can see who has taken money from pro-abortion groups.  Go to to learn more.
