In 1985 a group of observant people noticed that a candidate receiving many donations early in a race helps to attract subsequent donors, and thus was started an organization called Emily’s List – where EMILY is an acronym that stands for Early Money Is Like Yeast” because “it makes the dough rise”. EMILY’s List bundles contributions to the campaigns of candidates in favor of abortion rights running in targeted races.
The success of Emily’s List has been phenomenal. By 2013 its membership reached 3 million who raised and spent more than $400 million through 2016 to claim 1400 election victories.

the Alliance Defending Freedom (adflegal.org),
National Right to Life (nrlc.org),
the Priests for Life (priestsforlife.org),
