Nov. 29 @ 11:30am: SBA List Hosts Press Conference With Gov. Kristi Noem, Gov. Kim Reynolds, & Ambassador Nikki Haley
Washington, D.C. – Ahead of oral arguments in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, Susan B. Anthony List president Marjorie Dannenfelser will host a virtual press conference with South Dakota Governor Kristi Noem, Iowa Governor Kim Reynolds, and former U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley to discuss the pro-life movement and role of state lawmakers in protecting life. The Dobbs case involves Mississippi’s Gestational Age Act, which limits abortion after 15 weeks. The Supreme Court will address whether all pre-viability abortion limits are unconstitutional.
SBA List launched a $2.5 million television and digital ad campaign, part of the group’s overall $10 million campaign to educate Americans about the stakes of the Dobbs late abortion case. The Court will hear oral arguments on December 1.
Members of the media: RSVP to Prudence Robertson at [email protected] to receive a link to register for the event.

“Nikki Haley, Kristi Noem and Kim Reynolds exemplify strong pro-life, pro-woman leadership – championing pro-life legislation in their states with courage and compassion. They represent thousands of women lawmakers nationwide – from statehouses to Congress – who are poised to lead fearlessly on the life issue as Roe v. Wade is finally dismantled,” said SBA List President Marjorie Dannenfelser. “In almost 50 years since Roe, women have achieved historic gains in representation, no thanks to the seven unelected men who imposed abortion on demand until birth on America under the guise of women’s rights. Women’s voices are heard now more than ever, as legislatures acting on their constituents’ will advance hundreds of new pro-life laws a year, including limits on late-term abortion when unborn babies can feel pain. It is time to modernize our law and let the people and their elected representatives protect vulnerable women and children.”
SBA List along with nearly 79 women lawmakers representing 45 states filed an amicus brief in the Dobbs case, joining the state of Mississippi’s merits brief in calling on the Court to reverse Roe and Planned Parenthood v. Casey. The brief highlights the significant advancement of women in state legislatures since the 1970s, now representing a “critical mass” of more than 30% of state legislators overall, and urges the Court to give greater deference to these legislators in making abortion policy.
Earlier this year SBA List launched a nationwide campaign asserting the humanity of unborn children. Public opinion polls consistently show a strong majority of Americans reject pro-abortion extremism.
SBA List and its affiliates will spend $72 million during the 2021-2022 election cycle.
SBA List is a network of 900,000 pro-life Americans nationwide, dedicated to ending abortion by electing national leaders and advocating for laws that save lives, with a special calling to promote pro-life women leaders.
