WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today the Republican National Committee passed a resolution to combat the Democrat’s “war on women” narrative and calling upon candidates to speak more effectively in support of policies that advance the pro-life cause. Marjorie Dannenfelser, president of the national pro-life group the Susan B. Anthony List praised the resolution and its goals saying:
“Republican committeemen and women affirm what women know. It is time to be fearless, compassionate and purposeful in communicating our life-affirming views. To fail to do so undermines the purpose of running for office: winning so we can lead.”
Author and chief sponsor of the resolution RNC Committeewoman Ellen Barrosse previously said:
“The Republican Party is proudly pro-life and my resolution talks about successful strategies for connecting with American voters on the Life issue. The position on the life issue that Democrats have staked out is extreme, and we want our candidates to know how to fight back against Democrats’ deceptive, ‘war on Women’ rhetoric.”
The Susan B. Anthony List and its affiliated Political Action Committees, the SBA List Candidate Fund and Women Speak Out PAC, are 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 at all levels of government. The SBA List is a network of more than 365,000 pro-life Americans nationwide.
