Presidential Nominee Must Advocate National Minimum Protections for Unborn Children
Washington, D.C. – The national pro-life group Susan B. Anthony Pro-Life America issued the following statement on the kickoff of the GOP presidential nomination fight:
“The pro-life movement has high expectations for 2024 GOP presidential candidates at a time when the life issue has been returned to the people to decide through their elected representatives,” said SBA Pro-Life America President Marjorie Dannenfelser. “Specifically, the pro-life movement needs bold advocates who pledge to fight for minimum national protections for the unborn, such as when they can feel pain or when their heartbeat can be detected.
“As the most recent midterm elections clearly demonstrated, we need a nominee who will lead by driving a sharp contrast between the pro-life position and the extreme Democratic position of abortion on demand without limit. What cannot be tolerated are any candidates who shy away from this fight and state that the life issue is now strictly for states to decide. That is political failure and amounts to support for unlimited abortion on demand in the many blue states that allow it. It is the opposite of the leadership needed in the greatest human rights battle of our time.
“SBA Pro-Life America looks forward to encouraging each candidate to put forward a bold vision and policy platform for the new Dobbs era so that pro-life voters know exactly where they stand.”
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.
