Washington, D.C. – Today the national pro-life group Susan B. Anthony List (SBA List) announced its endorsement of Jeanne Ives to represent Illinois’ 6th Congressional District.
“We are proud to endorse Jeanne Ives, a bold pro-life leader who will fight to protect unborn children in Congress,” said SBA List President Marjorie Dannenfelser. “Illinois recently passed one of the most extreme abortion laws in the country – legalizing abortion up to the moment of birth, allowing non-doctors to perform abortions, and even repealing the state’s ban on gruesome partial-birth abortions. As a state legislator, Jeanne worked hard to oppose laws forcing taxpayers to fund abortion. Illinois citizens deserve a passionate pro-life advocate like Jeanne who will stand up to the extreme abortion lobby in Washington.”
Ives is a former state representative who served for six years in the Illinois legislature. She is a West Point graduate and served in the United States Army. She and her husband, Paul, have five children and reside in Wheaton, IL.
SBA List is a network of more than 837,000 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.
