Washington, D.C. – The national pro-life group Susan B. Anthony List (SBA List) celebrated the confirmation of Mike Pompeo as Secretary of State:
“Mike Pompeo will make an outstanding Secretary of State. He is strongly pro-life and committed to upholding the dignity of every human being as America’s top diplomat,” said SBA List President Marjorie Dannenfelser. “The State Department is the first line of enforcement for President Trump’s pro-life agenda in foreign policy, from preventing American tax dollars from being used to promote abortion overseas, to defunding the UNFPA which has long been complicit in China’s brutal population control regime, to standing up to the international abortion lobby’s demand to declare abortion a ‘human right.’ We congratulate Pompeo on his confirmation and thank President Trump for nominating pro-life leaders to serve in his Cabinet.”
Ahead of this week’s vote, SBA List launched a five-figure digital ad and phone call campaign targeting key Senators and urging them to vote to confirm Pompeo. The campaign has reached and mobilized more than 100,000 pro-life activists, generating thousands of constituent phone calls and tweets.
Susan B. Anthony List and its partner super PAC, Women Speak Out spent more than $18 million in the 2016 election cycle, knocking on more than 1.1 million doors in battleground states to defeat Hillary Clinton and maintain a pro-life Senate. SBA List is dedicated to pursuing policies and electing candidates who will reduce and ultimately end abortion. To that end, the SBA List emphasizes the education, promotion, mobilization, and election of pro-life women. The SBA List is a network of more than 630,000 pro-life Americans nationwide.
