4th Circuit Blocks North Carolina’s Pro-life Law

“The 4th Circuit’s egregious decision illustrates exactly why Supreme Court review is needed. All states should be able to protect unborn children after five months of pregnancy – a point by which we know these babies can feel pain. North Carolinians, like most Americans, reject the extreme status quo of abortion on demand through birth and are eager to humanize our laws – advancing legislation this year to stop discrimination abortions and protect babies who survive abortions. Their efforts are part of a nationwide groundswell of almost 500 pro-life bills introduced this year alone, 89 of them and counting enacted in law. The circuit court is dramatically out of step with the consensus of the people.

“We thank our local allies fighting for the right to protect the most vulnerable and we look forward to seeing the case appealed.”

TODAY: Congressional Democrats Push for Federal Abortion Takeover in Deceptively Named “Women’s Health Protection Act”

“The deceptively named ‘Women’s Health Protection Act’ is an extreme federal takeover that would directly attack the rights of the American people to enact and enforce pro-life laws through their duly elected legislators,” said SBA List President Marjorie Dannenfelser.  

“Washington Democrats are dramatically out of touch when it comes to abortion. Americans nationwide want to humanize our laws by passing reasonable limits on abortion, not expand abortion on-demand by a federal mandate that would block existing protections for women and their unborn children.”

AG Cameron Fights for Unborn Children, Will Defend KY’s Law Against Dismemberment Abortions

“We are proud to stand with Attorney General Cameron as he fights for the right to defend Kentucky’s pro-life laws and values, all the way to the Supreme Court. Time and time again, science reveals the humanity of unborn children – including their capacity to feel pain, with pain receptors beginning to develop at seven and a half weeks. Kentucky lawmakers acted on the will of the people in banning the barbaric live dismemberment of tiny babies at a stage when they already possess fully formed arms, legs, fingers and toes, passing this legislation by overwhelming bipartisan majorities. Across the nation, momentum to humanize our extreme abortion laws is on the rise, with state legislators enacting 89 new pro-life laws and counting this year alone.”

Pro-life Victory: NC Senate Approves Ban on Discrimination Abortions

“We applaud the North Carolina legislature for prioritizing this compassionate bill to end lethal discrimination in North Carolina and call on Governor Cooper to swiftly sign it into law,” said SBA List President Marjorie Dannenfelser, a North Carolina native. “Across the nation, the people are sending a clear message to pro-abortion politicians and to the Supreme Court: the extreme status quo imposed by Roe v. Wade has been rejected. State legislators, acting on the will of their constituents, have approved more than 80 pro-life laws in this year alone. Governor Cooper should heed this historical groundswell and follow the will of the people he represents by signing this bill that will protect the most vulnerable in his state.”

8th Circuit Disappoints With Block on Missouri’s Pro-life Protections

“We’re disappointed the circuit court refused to let Missouri’s law stand, especially with a landmark U.S. Supreme court case already pending. Missouri lawmakers acted on the will of the people when they enacted some of the nation’s strongest protections for the unborn and their mothers in 2019. Since then, many other states have added to the groundswell of pro-life legislation enacted in recent years, with almost 500 bills introduced this year alone – 89 of them enacted in law. Americans reject the extreme status quo of abortion on demand through birth and are eager to humanize our laws.

“We thank our local allies fighting for the right to protect the most vulnerable and we look forward to seeing the case appealed.”

VA Dems Pick Pro-Abortion Extremist McAuliffe for Governor

“Terry McAuliffe is a longtime extremist and abortion industry ally who wants to enshrine abortion on demand through birth in the Virginia Constitution,” said SBA List President Marjorie Dannenfelser, a Virginia resident. “It’s no surprise McAuliffe is backed by Governor Ralph Northam, who shocked the nation by openly endorsing infanticide. The Biden White House has emboldened abortion extremists like McAuliffe, whose policy positions fly in the face of the pro-life American majority. We urge Virginians to reject McAuliffe’s extreme abortion agenda.”
