Washington, D.C. – The national pro-life group Susan B. Anthony List (SBA List) today thanked Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives Paul Ryan (R-WI) for his leadership as Ryan announced that he will not run for re-election.
“Speaker Ryan will leave behind a strong legacy of pro-life leadership,” said SBA List President Marjorie Dannenfelser. “He has been a champion for unborn children, for their mothers, and an articulate communicator who continually made the case for redirecting tax dollars away from America’s largest abortion business, Planned Parenthood, and championed conscience rights in health care. Under his leadership, the House achieved a major pro-life victory by passing legislation to stop late-term abortions after five months of pregnancy. We are saddened by his departure but look forward to continuing the fight with him no matter his next steps.”
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.
