A prayer and a primary win

I spoke with Marilinda Garcia a few months before she announced her bid for Congress. Passionately pro-life, she had just been named a “Rising Star” by the RNC.

I was impressed by Marilinda’s powerful articulation of pro-life values, so I encouraged her to run for Congress. “It’s funny you should say that,” she said, “I am indeed at a crossroads. I have to make that decision whether to run for Congress – will you pray for me?

Of course I promised to pray for her.

The SBA List endorsed Marilinda Garcia, and last week she won her primary by a landslide. This strong pro-life leader now goes on to challenge extremely pro-abortion, EMILY’s List-endorsed Rep. Ann McLane Kuster.

The SBA List will be with Marilinda every step of the way, all the way to Congress.

Congratulations Marilinda Garcia

We’ve endorsed nearly 40 congressional candidates this election year, and with Marilinda’s primary win, that includes 2 pro-life young women running for Congress in the Northeast – Marilinda Garcia (R-NH) and Elise Stefanik (R-NY). There are currently no pro-life women from the Northeast serving in the U.S. House… and we are going to change that.

We have helped elect 97 pro-life candidates to the U.S. House, 13 to the Senate, and 15 to statewide office. These leaders went on to pass historic legislation like the federal Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act and the recent tidal wave of pro-life state laws across the country.

This year we can elect even more pro-life leaders to state and federal office, where they will champion pro-life legislation to save babies’ lives.

To the finish line!

NYT: SBA List's "Assertive New Script to Fight Abortion"

Today the New York Times featured Susan B. Anthony List's proven strategy of electing articulate pro-life women leaders to fight the lie that abortion is somehow good for women.

Conservatives Write an Assertive New Script to Fight Abortion

It was not on the public schedule for the Republican National Committee’s spring meeting at the stately Peabody Hotel in downtown Memphis. But inside a conference room, a group of conservative women held a boot camp to strengthen an unlikely set of skills: how to talk about abortion.

They have conducted a half-dozen of these sessions around the country this year, from Richmond, Va., to Madison, Wis. Coaches point video cameras at the participants and ask them to talk about why they believe abortion is wrong.

They review the video, and critiques are rendered. “Rape is a four-letter word,” one of the consultants often advises. “Purge it from your lexicon.”

Another tip: Keep remarks as short as possible. “Two sentences is really the goal,” said Marjorie Dannenfelser, the president of the Susan B. Anthony List, the anti-abortion group that hosts the boot camps. “Then stop talking.”

Social issues have taken on added urgency since the Supreme Court’s ruling in the Hobby Lobby case last month ...
