Life is Winning 2020
About Life is Winning
Ahead of the pivotal 2020 elections, momentum is building across America to revisit the 1973 Roe v. Wade decision that struck down laws protecting unborn children and their mothers nationwide.
Life is Winning tells the story of how the pro-life cause went from an orphaned political “problem” to a winning issue embraced at the highest levels of the Republican Party, thanks to a small-but-ambitious group of pro-life women. These women took on Washington’s consultant class and in the process built a multimillion-dollar campaign and lobbying powerhouse with more than 900,000 grassroots members nationwide.
Marjorie Dannenfelser, president of Susan B. Anthony List and leading architect of the pro-life strategy that helped propel then-candidate Donald Trump to his stunning victory in 2016, gives inside perspective on how her own pro-life conversion – and the President’s – resembles the national sea change happening today, and why the end of abortion and restoration of life in America is closer than ever before.
Praise for Life is Winning
“In these pages, Marjorie has precisely captured how far the pro-life movement has come and how much we stand to achieve at this pivotal moment. It has never been more critical for each of us to continue to stand up and speak out.”
– Vice President Mike Pence
“Since 1993 the naysayers have more than met their match in Susan B. Anthony List and its heroic leader Marjorie Dannenfelser. Life Is Winning proves that we don’t have to compromise our pro-life principles or stay silent about the things that matter most.”
– Sarah Huckabee Sanders
“In this book, you will see what courageous leadership looks like as you learn how Marjorie has led the fight for the most basic of all human rights – that the vulnerable and marginalized must be protected. She challenges us to consider a moral choice – will we stand together and recognize the dignity of the unborn? Will we renew our commitment to life and liberty for all people? This is hard work. Life is Winning shows you how it is done.”
– Cheryl Bachelder
“Life is Winning provides a key to making sense of the pro-abortion Left’s endless campaign to remove President Trump and the vitriol directed at Justice Brett Kavanaugh. Political events like these are virtually inexplicable without reference to Roe v. Wade’s noxious influence and faulty foundations.”
– Mollie Hemingway
“As Marjorie so persuasively argues, despite growing extremism on the pro-abortion side, the pro-life movement is stronger than ever. This is a battle we must win—and by God’s grace and thanks to the tireless work of pro- life advocates across America, we are winning.”
– Senator Steve Daines (R-MT)
“Through honest reflection and personal insight, in Life Is Winning, Marjorie shows us not only why she has been a moral leader for decades but why she is one of our country’s most savvy political forces.”
– Nikki Haley

“I commend Marjorie for having the courage to follow the truth, to share her story and insights in this enlightening book, and most importantly, to act and speak out for those who have no voice.”
– Abby Johnson

– Penny Young Nance
“If you want to understand why we have the most pro-life president in our history, and how a strong pro-life movement can elect him again, read Life Is Winning. You’ll understand how the pro-life message wins elections, and will be inspired with lessons from a woman with whom I’ve been privileged to collaborate for decades!”
– Fr. Frank Pavone
“Life is Winning is a story of turning back toward fundamental truth, and our nation’s founding principles told with compassion and keen insight by a pro-life trailblazer in her own right.”
– Tony Perkins
“Marjorie has spent decades fiercely devoted to empowering the pro-life grassroots and promoting courageous leaders in elected office who will fight for legal protections for our preborn brothers and sisters.”
– Lila Rose
“A deeply perceptive analysis of the political and cultural forces that propelled President Trump to victory, to the surprise and chagrin not only of pro-abortion elites, but also a consultant class that wrote off the ‘social issues’”
– Mercedes Schlapp
