On Wednesday, Gov. Kay Ivey received an endorsement for her re-election campaign from Susan B. Anthony List (SBA List), a Washington, D.C.-based, pro-life organization.
"Governor Kay Ivey is a trailblazer and a champion for unborn children and mothers in the deeply pro-life state of Alabama,” SBA List’s vice president of government affairs Marilyn Musgrave said in a statement announcing the endorsement. "Our support for Kay goes back more than a decade, and she has always been outspoken in defense of life.
"As governor, she has boldly challenged the national status quo of abortion on demand up to birth, signing some of the nation’s strongest legislation protecting unborn children throughout pregnancy. Her authentic pro-woman leadership powerfully counters the lies of the abortion lobby and their extremist political allies. We are proud to endorse her for re-election and urge all Alabamians to vote for her on May 24."
Although the endorsement was not totally unexpected, given Ivey is a founding member of SBA List’s National Pro-Life Women’s Caucus, it had a triggering effect on some, including Bill Prady, the creator of the long-running CBS sitcom "The Big Bang Theory."
Prady immediately took to social media on the heels of the announcement to call Ivey "antisemitic."
Hey, Gov. Ivey,— Bill Prady 🇺🇦 (@billprady) April 20, 2022
The @SBAList believes it should be illegal for Jewish women to follow the teachings of their religion. Is this the only antisemitic position you agree with, or are there others?
"Hey, Gov. Ivey, The @SBAList believes it should be illegal for Jewish women to follow the teachings of their religion," Prady wrote in a Tweet. "Is this the only antisemitic position you agree with, or are there others?"
Prady's "Big Bang Theory" had a 12-year run with 279 episodes. Its spin-off, "Young Sheldon," is also a product of Prady and is in its fifth season.
