Former Rep. Marilyn Musgrave Travels to AL to Endorse Pro-life Champion, Meet with Grassroots Pro-lifers of the 2nd District
MONTGOMERY, Ala. – Today the national pro-life group Susan B. Anthony List (SBA List) announced its endorsement of Rep. Martha Roby in her campaign for reelection in Alabama’s second congressional district.
Former U.S. Congresswoman Marilyn Musgrave, SBA List’s Vice President of Government Affairs, will join Rep. Roby for a series of events in the district, meeting with pro-life constituents.
“We are so proud to endorse Martha Roby for re-election. We can hardly imagine the House without her impassioned, articulate voice, stirring America’s conscience in support of one pro-life initiative after another,” said Musgrave. “Martha is a bold opponent of the abortion industry, fighting to keep our tax dollars out of the abortion business and to hold them accountable for the grievous injustice they commit. Whether advocating for vulnerable unborn children in floor debate or in the media, Martha speaks from the heart and seizes every opportunity to be a leader on life. We are excited to see her re-elected and work together again.”
Roby frequently speaks out in favor of greater legal protections for unborn children and their mothers and against the abortion industry. Roby was one of the first to speak out on the House floor to raise awareness of Planned Parenthood’s role in the harvest and sale of aborted babies’ body parts for profit. She has fought to redirect taxpayer funding from Planned Parenthood, the nation’s largest abortion business, to comprehensive health care alternatives.
Roby is a co-sponsor of the Protecting Life and Integrity in Research Act of 2017, which would ban federal funding for research using fetal tissue from abortion victims. Recently, she spoke in support of the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act. She also co-sponsored the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act and managed floor debate on the bill.
Susan B. Anthony List and its partner super PAC, Women Speak Out spent more than $18 million in the 2016 election cycle, knocking on more than 1.1 million doors in battleground states to defeat Hillary Clinton and maintain a pro-life Senate. SBA List is dedicated to pursuing policies and electing candidates who will reduce and ultimately end abortion. To that end, the SBA List emphasizes the education, promotion, mobilization, and election of pro-life women. The SBA List is a network of more than 630,000 pro-life Americans nationwide.
