Potential Presidential Contenders Show Support For Twenty Week Abortion Ban

The Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act is one of the most important pieces of pro-life legislation since Roe v. Wade. Susan B. Anthony List is strongly encouraging potential Republican presidential candidates to publicly support the bill. Today the Brody File had the exclusive.

Brody File Exclusive: Exclusive: Potential GOP Presidential Contenders Show Support For Twenty Week Abortion Ban

Some potential GOP presidential candidates are showing their support for a piece of controversial abortion legislation. The Brody File has obtained letters from many of them backing a bill that would ban abortions in America after twenty weeks. 

Pro-lifers say the bill is one of the most important to come along in quite some time. It’s a federal attempt to ban all abortions after twenty weeks, the halfway point of pregnancy. It’s commonly referred to as the fetal pain bill, because of the prevailing medical opinion that an unborn baby can feel pain by then. Senator Lindsey Graham is the main sponsor of the bill. “If you’re telling parents to sing to the baby because they understand your voice, should we really be aborting a child at the stage of the pregnancy?” Graham tells The Brody File. “I don’t want anybody carrying the republican banner that doesn’t get this. If you don’t get this, then you’re the extremist.”

That’s why Graham, along with pro-life groups like the Susan B Anthony List (SBA-List) and National Right to Life are pressuring possible republican presidential contenders to get behind the bill, even though many democrats and pundits will consider it toxic. And the response so far?  “Great response,” Graham says. “All the major candidates, I think will be with us. I couldn’t be more pleased.”

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!
