Washington, D.C.Today the national pro-life group Susan B. Anthony Pro-Life America responded to Chris Christie’s announcement of his 2024 presidential campaign:

“Chris Christie has proven throughout his career that life is a winning issue,” said SBA Pro-Life America President Marjorie Dannenfelser. “He defied the political establishment view that an unabashedly pro-life candidate couldn’t win in New Jersey. He defeated the incumbent Democrat, was an unapologetic pro-life governor and won re-election. With this experience, he played an instrumental role in partnering with us to prepare governors for the Dobbs decision, discussing how to communicate boldly and go on offense.

“Convinced of the humanity of the unborn child after seeing a 13-week ultrasound of his daughter and hearing her heartbeat, Christie understands that the Democrats who would not protect a single unborn baby at any stage of pregnancy – even up to birth – are the true extremists on abortion. He is well poised to expose and contrast their position with the consensus among Americans that there should be significant limits on abortion. We encourage Governor Christie and all presidential candidates to embrace, at a minimum, national protections for the unborn by 15 weeks when they can feel pain – a standard 72% of Americans support.

“We’re looking for a fearless national defender of life who will lead on this issue and work hard to gather the votes necessary to advance protections in Congress. We look forward to Christie and other presidential contenders further outlining their pro-life vision and policy platform as the primary election unfolds.” 

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.
