Ahead of the pivotal 2020 elections, momentum is building across America to revisit the 1973 Roe v. Wade decision that struck down laws protecting unborn children and their mothers nationwide. As Sarah Huckabee Sanders writes in the foreword, “The test of any civilization is how it treats the least among us, and defending life is what makes America special.” “Life is Winning” makes the case that the pro-life movement in America has never been stronger, and provides lessons for all conservatives on how to build coalitions that win elections and change national policy.
Pro-life movement leans into 2020 election to boost Trump, claiming issue ‘has gone from liability to asset’
The anti-abortion movement is pouring substantial resources into upcoming elections, having been galvanized by President Trump, who has purportedly shifted the political landscape to make the issue a winner in November. On Monday, canvassers for the Susan B. Anthony (SBA) List will deploy to Wisconsin — decided by a 0.77 percent vote gap in the 2016 presidential race — in an attempt to sway a narrow margin of voters to support anti-abortion politicians.
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.
EWTN Pro-Life Weekly Episode 176: Interview with Joseph Meany, Ph.D., President of the National Catholic Bioethics Center
In the latest episode of EWTN Pro-Life Weekly: Missouri Sen. Josh Hawley issues a new litmus test for Supreme Court nominees—he joins us to explain what he wants to hear from them about Roe vs. Wade. The House of Representatives approved a massive federal spending package last week which would repeal the “Protect Life Rule” – Autumn Christensen of the Susan B. Anthony List joins us with analysis… and much more!
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.”
