In response to President-elect Donald Trump’s decision to appoint Rep. Tom Price (R-GA) as Secretary of Health and Human Services, Susan B. Anthony List (SBA List) president Marjorie Dannenfelser offered the following comment:
“Representative Tom Price is an excellent choice for Secretary of Health and Human Services. He has an 100 percent pro-life record and is well positioned to champion truly comprehensive health care. He helped lead the charge to defund Planned Parenthood through budget reconciliation, setting the stage for President-elect Trump and a pro-life Congress to reallocate those funds to support comprehensive women’s healthcare. As HHS Secretary, he will play a key role in developing a robust health care reform proposal that protects life and consciences, while promoting options for low-income individuals and families.”
SBA List Vice President of Government Affairs, former Congresswoman Marilyn Musgrave also stated:
“Dr. Price has that wonderful combination of great ability and humility. He is staunchly pro-life and never wavers from his principles. He’s an ideal choice for heading up HHS.”
Susan B. Anthony List and its connected 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 465,000 pro-life Americans nationwide.
