Today the national pro-life group Susan B. Anthony List (SBA List) celebrated the announcement of Catherine Glenn Foster, M.A., J.D., as the new President and CEO of Americans United for Life.
“Catherine Glenn Foster is a longtime pro-life activist and SBA List is thrilled to see her take the helm at Americans United for Life,” said SBA List president Marjorie Dannenfelser. “Catherine is a formidable advocate for all human life and the dignity of women. The abortion industry should be worried with Catherine leading the charge at AUL. With passion, poise, and scholarship, she will take the battle to abortion activists at a crucial moment when the pro-life movement has unprecedented opportunities to advance lifesaving laws. We congratulate Catherine and our friends at AUL and look forward to working together.”
“Catherine is a dynamic woman with experience in every phase of pro-life legal advocacy,” added Chuck Donovan, president of the Charlotte Lozier Institute, SBA List’s education arm. “She will extend AUL’s proud tradition of leadership for life for years to come.”
