Washington, D.C. – In response to the confirmation of President Biden’s Supreme Court nominee Ketanji Brown Jackson, the national pro-life group Susan B. Anthony List (SBA List) issued the following statement:
“Ketanji Brown Jackson’s confirmation fulfills President Biden’s promise to the abortion lobby and raises the stakes of this year’s critical midterm elections,” said SBA List President Marjorie Dannenfelser. “As we await a decision in the Dobbs case, momentum is growing nationwide to protect unborn children and their mothers. Americans of all stripes want to modernize our extreme laws that allow abortion on demand up to birth, well after science shows babies in the womb feel pain. More than ever we need pro-life champions in the states and Washington who act on the will of the people and represent their values.
“We thank all our pro-life Senate allies who questioned Jackson about her radical anti-life views and voted against confirmation. We will work tirelessly to take back the House and Senate this November and we will never stop fighting to hold pro-abortion politicians accountable at the ballot box.”
Before the vote SBA List announced it would score against Jackson’s confirmation. Previously a coalition of nearly 40 national and state pro-life leaders spearheaded by SBA List also sent a letter to Senate Judiciary Committee leaders detailing the nominee’s hostility toward pro-life Americans.
A recent Wall Street Journal poll found that 48% of Americans support a 15-week abortion limit, compared to 43% who do not. Polling consistently shows a strong majority of Americans reject abortion extremism. SBA List is tracking the extremism of the Biden-Harris administration at sba-list.org/biden-harris.
SBA List is a network of 900,000 pro-life Americans nationwide, dedicated to ending abortion by electing national leaders and advocating for laws that save lives, with a special calling to promote pro-life women leaders.
