Washington, D.C. – Today the national pro-life group Susan B. Anthony List (SBA List) announced its endorsement of Kay Ivey for governor of Alabama. The primary will take place on June 5, 2018.
“We are proud to endorse Governor Kay Ivey, a longtime friend of SBA List,” said former congresswoman Marilyn Musgrave, SBA List’s Vice President of Government Affairs. “An original member of our National Pro-Life Women’s Caucus, Kay exemplifies the pro-life, pro-woman leadership SBA List exists to promote. She has championed compassionate legislation to limit abortion after five months of pregnancy. She will fight to protect unborn children and their mothers and keep Alabama taxpayers out of the abortion business. We urge voters to re-elect Kay as governor of one of the nation’s most solidly pro-life states.”
Governor Ivey accepted the endorsement saying:
“I am a pro-life conservative who believes every life is precious, and I’m honored to be endorsed by Susan B. Anthony List, an organization that works tirelessly to save the lives of the unborn. As governor, I will always defend unborn life, starting at conception, and advocate for those who are unable to advocate for themselves. And with the support of Alabamians, I look forward to continuing to serve this great state.”
Ivey is a founding member of SBA List’s Pro-Life Women’s Caucus and was first endorsed by SBA List Candidate Fund in 2010.
Susan B. Anthony List and its partner 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, SBA List emphasizes the education, promotion, mobilization, and election of pro-life women. SBA List is a network of more than 630,000 pro-life Americans nationwide.
