Dannenfelser Reacts to Republican Presidential Debate

Following tonight’s 5 PM Republican presidential debate Susan B. Anthony List president Marjorie Dannenfelser offered the following comment concerning the winner of the debate:

 “It was encouraging to see that Carly Fiorina, who has strongly promoted her pro-life views on the campaign trail, clearly stood out among the candidates. She is being hailed as the winner by pundits from George Will to Kirsten Powers. There could not be a bigger contrast between Carly Fiorina and Hillary Clinton, who continues to defend Planned Parenthood despite mounting evidence of their callousness and brutality.” 

On the evolution of the pro-life issue within the Republican Party:

“The pro-life issue is playing a vastly different role in this campaign than any previous election cycle. Tonight for the first time, Gov. George Pataki, who called abortion a ‘distraction’ in a New Hampshire ad this spring, gave a passionate endorsement of the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act. This reasonable legislation to stop abortion after five months is supported by a majority of Americans, women in higher number than men.”

“Republican candidates can no longer just call themselves ‘pro-life,’ they must, at a minimum, support this common sense legislative proposal to remove the United States off the list of only seven nations to allow abortion on demand after five months.”
