Annual Campaign for Life Gala to be held June 3rd in Washington, D.C.
Washington, D.C. – Today the national pro-life group Susan B. Anthony List announced that Nikki Haley will speak at the organization’s 12th annual Campaign for Life Gala. The event will take place Monday, June 3 at the Andrew Mellon Auditorium in Washington, D.C.
“We are proud to honor our longtime friend, Nikki Haley, for her strong pro-life leadership,” said SBA List President Marjorie Dannenfelser. “During her time as governor, Nikki signed landmark legislation to end brutal late-term abortions in South Carolina. President Trump then made a very wise decision in selecting her to serve as ambassador to the United Nations. In this role she was a fierce defender of unborn children and their mothers and of American interests in protecting the vulnerable. She stood up to the international abortion lobby and played a key role in advancing the Trump administration’s pro-life priorities, resulting in historic gains for life on a global scale.”
Former U.S. Ambassador Nikki Haley added:
“At the United Nations, America is often in the minority when we stand up for our values, but we proudly stand strong for them anyway, because it’s the right thing to do. At home, the Susan B. Anthony List reminds us of the importance of staying true to our values, and no value is more sacred than the right to life. On late term abortions in particular, America is too often falling short of our own values.”
As governor of South Carolina, Haley signed the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act into law. As ambassador to the United Nations, she championed the human rights of unborn children and their mothers. During negotiations at the Commission on the Status of Women, Haley notably worked to omit pro-abortion language from conversations concerning the family. She also promoted the expansion of the Global Protect Life policy, or Mexico City Policy, to stop taxpayer funding of the abortion industry overseas.
Previous speakers at the SBA List Campaign for Life Gala include President Donald Trump, Vice President Mike Pence, Sen. Joni Ernst (R-IA), Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC), Gov. Mike Huckabee (R-AR), Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI), and Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL).
SBA List is a network of more than 700,000 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.
