Longtime Pro-Life Ally Positioned to Advance President-Elect Trump’s Pro-Life Commitments
Washington, DC – This afternoon Congressman Paul Ryan (R-WI) won the nomination of House Republicans to continue serving as Speaker of the House. In response, Susan B. Anthony List president Marjorie Dannenfelser offered the following comment:
“We congratulate Speaker Paul Ryan, a close and longtime ally of the pro-life movement, on his unanimous nomination to serve once again as Speaker,” said Marjorie Dannenfelser, president of Susan B. Anthony List. “We look forward to working with Speaker Ryan to advance the pro-life commitments made by President-elect Donald Trump: defund America’s abortion giant Planned Parenthood, pass into law the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, and enact a permanent Hyde Amendment. Ryan’s unanimous nomination is a crystal clear sign that House Republicans are united and ready to enact laws that save lives.”
Susan B. Anthony List and its connected 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 465,000 pro-life Americans nationwide.
