Washington, D.C. – Today Susan B. Anthony Pro-Life America Candidate Fund praised its endorsed candidate Gov. Ron DeSantis on Florida’s primary night as Democrats chose pro-abortion extremist Charlie Crist as their candidate for governor.
“Governor Ron DeSantis is a fearless advocate for unborn children and their mothers and a staunch champion for the people of Florida. He won’t be intimidated by extremist Charlie Crist,” said SBA Pro-Life America President Marjorie Dannenfelser. “Thanks to Ron DeSantis’ strong leadership, thousands of unborn children are protected from abortion after 15 weeks, when they can feel pain, and he is an unflinching defender of the laws enacted by the people. Charlie Crist used to tell constituents he was ‘pro-life’ – after voting the opposite. Now he stands in lock step with the radical abortion lobby, promising to impose abortion on demand on day one as governor. Our pro-life team is on the ground in Florida working to ensure voters understand what’s at stake, and we look forward to continuing to stand with Gov. DeSantis in the fight for life.”
SBA Pro-Life America and Women Speak Out PAC have boots on the ground in Florida and their field team has visited over 430,000 homes to educate voters on the life issue. This election cycle, SBA Pro-Life America and its entities plan to spend $78 million to protect life across America. This includes reaching eight million voters across battleground states – four million directly at their doors – to elect pro-life leaders across America and in D.C.
Susan B. Anthony Pro-Life America is a network of more than one million 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.
