WASHINGTON, D.C. – In response to comments by Indiana gubernatorial candidate John Gregg criticizing Governor Mike Pence for his support of a pro-life law that would have prevented babies from being targeted for abortion on the basis of disability, the national pro-life group Susan B. Anthony List (SBA List) issued the following statement:
“Science, medicine, and common sense tell us that life begins in the womb, and that unborn children with genetic disabilities deserve the chance to live, not lethal discrimination,” said SBA List President Marjorie Dannenfelser. “It’s quite sad that John Gregg calls himself ‘personally pro-life,’ yet can’t summon the compassion to support a law that would protect children with disabilities. John Gregg is trying to have it both ways on this life-or-death issue. It’s clear that Gov. Pence is a consistent, principled leader and John Gregg is just another flip-flopping politician.”
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.
