On Eve of State of the Union, Pro-Life Leader Confronts Pro-Abortion Administration
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Susan B. Anthony List (SBA List) President Marjorie Dannenfelser delivered her second-annual video address on Monday, January 23, nearly forty years after the Roe v. Wade decision, the group announced today. Ms. Dannenfelser hailed the groundswell of support for pro-life policies in Congress and among the Republican presidential candidates, who are united in their fight against “the most committed ideologically pro-abortion president in history.”
The complete video is posted online at www.sbaprolife.org/StateoftheUnborn on Monday. Key excerpts follow:
“All candidates in the Republican primary field have reacted AGAINST the most committed ideologically pro-abortion President in history by uniting in support of three prolife policies:
“First – Only nominating those who are committed to judicial restraint and the original meaning of the Constitution to the U.S. Supreme Court
“Second – Advancing and signing into law a Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act to protect unborn children who are capable of feeling pain from abortion.
“Third – The complete and permanent end of all taxpayer funding for abortion and abortion providers both at home and abroad.
“Along with presidential nominees’ commitment, the US House of Representatives is united in ending taxpayer funding of Planned Parenthood, the largest abortion provider in the nation and a willing enabler of human trafficking.
“An organic grassroots movement is now defunding Planned Parenthood state by state and enacting pro life legislation in an historic wave of state based initiatives. Over 60 pro-life bills were enacted last year in state legislatures across the country.”
The SBA List has been at the forefront of the fight to expose Planned Parenthood (PPFA). In reply to PPFA’s recently released 2009-2010 annual report, the SBA List circulated a fact sheet highlighting that for the first time the entity has topped $1 billion in total net asset, while receiving 46 percent of their annual revenue ($487,400,000) from U.S. taxpayers in the form of government grants, contracts & Medicaid reimbursements.
