Activists in that movement are working towards a grand, and perhaps fantastical, vision: a world where abortion is not just illegal, but unthinkable, and where babies are much more common as a result. This future has felt more tangible since the election of Donald Trump, who appointed two justices to the Supreme Court, Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh, who are skeptical of the constitutional right to abortion laid out in Roe v. Wade.
Vice President Mike Pence, a key leader in the most pro-life administration ever, believes that Washington can play “an even greater role” in ending abortion, including in law where the 1973 Roe vs. Wade rules. Pence, long a national leader in the pro-life movement sparked by that Supreme Court decision making abortion legal, also feels that “life is winning,” but it hasn’t won yet. In a remarkable move by a sitting vice president, Pence authored the introduction of a new book on the pro-life movement written by Marjorie Dannenfelser, president of the Susan B. Anthony List, a leading anti-abortion group.
“Representative Ray Rodrigues is a tireless advocate for life in the Sunshine State,” said the Honorable Marilyn Musgrave, vice president of the Susan B. Anthony List Candidate Fund. “As a father and man of faith, Ray has consistently fought for Floridians’ pro-life values.”
“Life is winning in Florida and across the nation,” said SBA List President Marjorie Dannenfelser. “Sunshine State communities are working hard to build up pro-life resources to provide for the needs of mothers and their children. Meanwhile, SBA List has already made over 380,000 visits to Florida voters, educating Floridians about the stark differences between candidates on abortion. In contrast to the Trump administration’s pro-life leadership, Joe Biden and extremist Democrats advocate abortion on demand through birth, paid for by taxpayers. Their agenda is radically out of step with the majority of Americans who support common ground limits on abortion, including millions of rank-and-file Democrats and Independent voters.”
“More than 2.4 million Americans are alive today because of the Hyde Amendment – but Joe Biden, Ayanna Pressley, and fellow extremist Democrats have pledged to eliminate Hyde and other crucial pro-life policies, forcing taxpayers to fund abortion on demand through birth, said SBA List President Marjorie Dannenfelser.
“We are excited to endorse Dan Rodimer for Congress. He is a champion of America’s vulnerable children, including the unborn,” said the Honorable Marilyn Musgrave, SBA List’s Vice President of Government Affairs. “With a passion for service, strong work ethic, and unwavering pro-life convictions, Dan is an impressive candidate who has what it takes to defeat his extreme pro-abortion opponent.
