Wyoming Congressional Candidate is Passionately Pro-life
Washington, D.C.—Today the national pro-life group Susan B. Anthony List (SBA List) announced its endorsement of Liz Cheney, who is running for Wyoming’s at-large Congressional District.
“Susan B. Anthony List proudly endorses Liz Cheney for Congress,” said former Congresswoman Marilyn Musgrave, Vice President of Government Affairs for the Susan B. Anthony List. “Liz Cheney will be an unwavering and outspoken advocate for unborn children and their mothers, and we look forward to her joining the ranks of our Pro-Life Women’s Caucus in Washington.”
Liz Cheney welcomed the endorsement saying, “I am proud to accept the endorsement of the Susan B. Anthony List. Their tireless efforts to save the innocent lives of unborn babies is admirable, and if I am elected to Congress, I will be a fighter for this terribly important cause. I believe deeply in pro-life values, and as the mother of five terrific kids, I live these values every day. Washington’s priorities must be refocused in support of a culture that celebrates life, strengthens faith and sustains healthy families. As a pro-life, constitutional conservative in Congress I will fight for the sanctity of all human life, including the lives of the unborn, and I will lead the effort to see to it that Planned Parenthood is defunded, investigated and shut down.”
SBA List noted that one of Cheney’s primary opponents, Leland Christensen, cast the deciding vote against a pro-life ultrasound bill in the Wyoming State Senate.
Cheney and her husband live in Wilson, Wyoming with their five children. Cheney is an attorney, Fox News contributor, and co-founder of the Alliance for a Strong America. She has also served in the U.S. State Department.
The Susan B. Anthony List and its Political Action Committees, the SBA List Candidate Fund and Women Speak Out PAC, spent $16.71 million in the 2014 election cycle to defeat pro-abortion incumbents and elect pro-life candidates to federal and statewide office. The 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 465,000 pro-life Americans nationwide.
