Champion of ‘Micah’s Law’ Will Play a Key Role in Protecting Pro-life Policies
Washington, D.C. – Today Representative Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) was elected to serve as Minority Leader of the U.S. House of Representatives. The national pro-life group Susan B. Anthony List (SBA List) praised McCarthy in a statement:
“Congressman Kevin McCarthy is a great friend to the pro-life movement and we congratulate him on his election to serve as House Minority Leader,” said SBA List President Marjorie Dannenfelser. “Congressman McCarthy is one of the foremost champions of ‘Micah’s Law,’ compassionate, popular legislation to stop painful late-term abortions after five months of pregnancy, which passed with overwhelming support in the House last year under his leadership. Having a strong pro-life ally like McCarthy in this key position will be important to safeguarding pro-life policies that will come under attack by pro-abortion House Democrats who seek abortion on demand, funded by the taxpayers. We congratulate Leader McCarthy and look forward to continuing to work together to advance the pro-life cause in the U.S. House.”
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.
