Susan B. Anthony List & American Principles Project Launch Multi-Million Election Transparency Initiative

“SBA List’s ability to win elections for pro-life candidates is predicated on a transparent, fair elections process,” explained Marjorie Dannenfelser, president of Susan B. Anthony List. “The integrity of our electoral system was severely compromised in 2020 when pro-abortion Democrats – utilizing the COVID-19 pandemic as an excuse – weakened state laws ensuring free and fair elections. While we vigorously oppose efforts to federalize election laws through bills such as H.R.1, we must also rally activists in battleground states to ensure pro-abortion Democrats cannot make their control of government permanent. We thank Attorney General Cuccinelli for stepping forward to lead this important effort.”

“The coalition we form will not only include national and state pro-life groups but will extend to the broader conservative and Republican-aligned groups, many of which are focused on defeating H.R. 1.,” added Terry Schilling, President and Executive Director of American Principles Project. “This disastrous legislation would force states to implement early voting, require automatic, same-day, and online voter registration as well as unlimited absentee balloting, and override voter ID laws.”

SCOTUS to Review “Protect Life Rule” Stopping Taxpayer Funding of Abortion Businesses Under Title X

“We are confident that Supreme Court will rule that the Trump administration and future pro-life administrations have the right to disentangle Title X taxpayer funding from the abortion industry.

“Abortion is not ‘family planning’ and a strong majority of Americans – including 65% percent of Independents and nearly one third of Democrats – oppose taxpayer funding of abortion. The Protect Life Rule honors their will and the plain language of the Title X statute by stopping the funneling of Title X taxpayer dollars to the abortion industry, without reducing family planning funding by a dime.”

National Pro-life Coalition Calls on U.S. Senators to Reject Nomination of Xavier Becerra as HHS Secretary

“Mr. Becerra is an enemy to every pro-life policy and law and has demonstrated complete disregard for the religious and moral convictions of those opposed to the brutal act of abortion. His radical record in public office as California’s Attorney General and member of Congress leads our organizations to ask you to reject Mr. Becerra’s nomination… Mr. Becerra’s confirmation would be divisive and a step in the wrong direction. We understand that the president needs to assemble a cabinet; however, Mr. Becerra has proven himself to be an enemy of the health of women and the unborn. He cannot be entrusted with our national health programs and policies and is not qualified to serve as Secretary of Health and Human Services.”

Planned Parenthood Abortion Numbers Hit a 15-Year High, Latest Annual Report Shows

“Planned Parenthood’s business is abortion, not health care. At a time when U.S. abortions overall have long been on the decline, Planned Parenthood is ending the lives of more than 354,000 unborn children a year,” said SBA List President Marjorie Dannenfelser. “With Joe Biden and Kamala Harris in the White House, we can expect this alarming trend to continue as Democrats seek to force taxpayers to bankroll abortion businesses at home and abroad, roll back FDA safety regulations on dangerous abortion drugs, and convert every pharmacy and post office into an abortion center – reversing decades of pro-life progress. The pro-life movement will work tirelessly to expose the Democrats’ extremism on abortion. We will never quit fighting to stop taxpayer funding of the abortion industry and provide the life-affirming alternatives women and families deserve.”
“There is a growing momentum in the states to welcome and protect unborn lives under the law. Many of these state initiatives are on a collision course with our nation’s current abortion jurisprudence. Someday soon we hope the Supreme Court will take the handcuffs off the states and allow them to pass pro-life laws – grounded in science and compassion – that reflect the will of their people.”

South Carolina Becomes 12th State to Enact Pro-life Heartbeat Legislation

“We applaud Governor McMaster’s pro-life leadership in signing this lifesaving legislation into law,” said SBA List President Marjorie Dannenfelser. “The beating hearts of unborn children should awaken the conscience of our nation to the tragedy and reality of abortion – which deprives innocent boys and girls of the fundamental right to life.

South Carolina Sends Heartbeat Bill to Governor McMaster’s Desk

“The beating hearts of unborn children should awaken the conscience of our nation to the tragedy and reality of abortion – which deprives innocent children of the fundamental right to life,” said SBA List President Marjorie Dannenfelser. “There is a growing momentum to protect life, grounded in science and compassion, by recognizing the humanity of unborn boys and girls. South Carolina lawmakers are acting on the will of the people in their state who want to protect life and to ensure women have true knowledge of the developing child within them.

“We thank Governor McMaster and Lt. Governor Evette for their leadership on behalf of life in South Carolina, and all our pro-life allies in the legislature for their tireless advocacy for this lifesaving measure.”
