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

“Mike Pence is the definition of an unapologetic pro-life leader, a longtime friend of unborn children and their mothers. He has always believed ‘life is winning in America’ and has spent decades working to restore this foundational right in our law – as governor of Indiana, in Congress, and as vice president in the most pro-life administration in history, laying the groundwork for the historic Dobbs victory,” said SBA Pro-Life America President Marjorie Dannenfelser. “He understands that science, compassion and the will of the people are on the side of life and that it is the human rights issue of our time.

“Pence knows the boldness this moment requires more than ever. He has been crystal clear in his support for national protections for unborn children when they can feel pain by 15 weeks, at a minimum, and on the need to serve mothers and families. With 25 states now having passed laws to protect life no later than 12 weeks, it is the Democrats who are extreme and wrong on this issue. Across the nation, Americans reject the up-to-birth abortion policies of China and North Korea and of today’s Democratic Party. Yet too often, the Democrats get away with hiding their extremism behind ambiguous slogans and rhetoric, and too many babies still face the same brutality of late-term abortion as before.

“All presidential candidates should embrace the will of Americans, and it’s essential that they are clear about where they stand. Winners lean into being pro-life and go on offense, they don’t shy away. We’re looking for a national defender of life who will lead and advocate the consensus position. Millions of voters are watching and deserve to see a clear contrast. We welcome Pence and other presidential contenders further outlining their pro-life vision and policy platform as the 2024 cycle continues.”

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.
