A Message from Marjorie: Guess who is coming to dinner?
I’m thrilled to tell you that on April 11, 2013, former vice presidential candidate and pro-life rockstar Congressman Paul Ryan of Wisconsin will keynote the SBA List’s annual Campaign for Life Gala in Washington, D.C.!
In announcing that he will keynote the Gala, Congressman Ryan said:
“I’m honored to give the keynote address at the Susan B. Anthony List Gala. The SBA List and its 365,000 members across the country are leading the charge to protect life at all stages. I am committed to working with the SBA List and all Americans to defend the dignity of every human life and protect the freedom of conscience and religion. Elected leaders must fight in behalf of society’s most vulnerable, and I thank the SBA List for providing a voice for the voiceless.”
Not only does Congressman Ryan have a pristine pro-life voting record, he has proved himself to be one of the best communicators we have in the fight to defend Life.
In Washington and across the country, Congressman Ryan has repeatedly explained the pro-life position with clarity, compassion, and thoughtfulness. We are so pleased to have him participate in this year’s event – where we will also honor young women leaders who are also passionately advocating for the lives of unborn children and their mothers.
One of those women is Lt. Governor Rebecca Kleefisch, also of Wisconsin. Lt. Governor Kleefisch has been courageously leading the charge for Life in Wisconsin where the Walker-Kleefisch Administration has overseen the successful defunding of Planned Parenthood and the passage of numerous pro-life laws in Wisconsin.
In addition to Lt. Gov. Kleefisch, we also plan to honor a new generation of trailblazers who lead the pro-life movement forward by presenting them with the prestigious Susan B. Anthony List Young Leader Award.
Here’s where I need your help. If you know a young woman who deserves this award, please nominate her today!
Past awardees include those who advocate for laws that save lives in their state legislatures or in Congress like State Senator Rachel Burgin and Sarah Makin, others are one the front lines directing pregnancy resource centers like Chelsea Rearick. Even more past Young Leader Award winners include women who start pro-life groups on their college campuses or advocate for the unborn in the media.Read More

Finally, I know Washington, D.C. may be far away, but if you can attend, it would be great to see you this year at our Annual Campaign for Life Gala. We would love the opportunity to share our goals for 2013 and beyond.
If you are unable to attend, but know of a young woman leader who you would like to nominate for the Young Leader Award, please click here to download the nomination form.
I look forward to continuing this partnership with you in the fight for Life!

Marco Rubio: Life Begins at Conception
This week pro-life rockstar Senator Marco Rubio participated in POLITICO's Playbook Breakfast. At one point, reporter Mike Allen told Senator Rubio that he may run for higher office one day and have to answer difficult questions, after which he asked him, "When does life begin?"
Senator Rubio promptly and firmly replied, "at conception."
Going on, Senator Rubio said, "Science has definitively established that life begins at conception, I wish more people in this city understood that."
Check out the clip below -- as well as Senator Rubio's rousing speech at the SBA List Gala earlier this year. Thank you, Senator, for standing for life!

VIDEO: Siblings Together in the Womb
Check out this amazing video from researchers in London! Unborn babies pushing and kicking each other in utero -- another example how ultrasound technology is changing the way we see life in the womb.
Striking new MRI images show that for twins, sibling rivalry starts early–even before birth. Researchers in London were trying to find out more about a rare blood disease that can complicate the pregnancies for women carrying twins, when they captured video of what appears to be two fetuses pushing each other as they try to make more room.
The researchers say the study has provided unexpected insight into sibling relationships.
If these babies are considered "siblings" before they are born, surely they are considered live human beings with rights first and foremost?
