Pro-life AG will Hold Abortion Industry Accountable
Washington, DC – Today the Senate Judiciary Committee will begin confirmation hearings for Senator Jeff Sessions (R-AL), President-elect Donald Trump’s nominee for Attorney General, and other cabinet-level nominees. Susan B. Anthony List president Marjorie Dannenfelser released the following comment urging Congress to confirm Sen. Sessions:
“Senator Jeff Sessions is a principled pro-life advocate who will bring a lifetime of experience to the role of Attorney General. He will enforce the law and defend the Constitution and fight for the constitutional right to life of every American, including the unborn, and for the civil rights and human dignity of every person, ” said Marjorie Dannenfelser, president of Susan B. Anthony List. “For eight years the Obama Justice Department, blinded by their pro-abortion bias, has failed to investigate the negligence and abuse endemic to the abortion industry. No more. As Attorney General, Jeff Sessions will hold the corrupt abortion industry accountable, protect conscience rights, and defend laws that save lives. We urge the Senate to confirm him without delay so the Justice Department can get to the important business of protecting the constitutional right to life of all Americans, especially the most vulnerable.”
While serving in the Senate, Sessions held a 100 percent pro-life voting record. He was a co-sponsor of the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, SBA List’s top legislative priority.
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.
