Women Leaders Headline #EmpowerWomenPromoteLife Rally
Washington, D.C. – Susan B. Anthony List president Marjorie Dannenfelser will deliver remarks at the #EmpowerWomenPromoteLife rally this morning outside the U.S. Supreme Court. The rally will be livestreamed. An excerpt of Dannenfelser’s remarks is as follows:
Friends, life is truly the most important human rights cause of our time. From abolition to suffrage to the civil rights movement, principled women and men throughout history have always stepped up to lead at pivotal moments like this.
The pioneers of the women’s movement clearly understood the violent, oppressive nature of abortion, and they adamantly opposed it.
From Susan B. Anthony’s newspaper The Revolution: “The act will burden her conscience in life, it will burden her soul in the grave. But thrice guilty is the one who drove her to the dreadful deed.”
Half a century of abortion on demand under Roe v. Wade, 63 million missing children and countless wounded mothers, and the brokenness and suffering that radiates through our whole culture has only proven her point.
That’s why the theme of this rally is “Empower Women, Promote Life.”
An opportunity this great to correct such a grievous injustice doesn’t come every day. This is America’s chance to step back from the brink of madness after all these long years. To turn the page on Roe’s onerous chapter and begin a more humane era – one where every child and every mother is safe under the mantle of the law.
Dannenfelser’s complete remarks as prepared for delivery are available online.
In Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, the Supreme Court will address whether all pre-viability abortion limits are unconstitutional. The case involves Mississippi’s Gestational Age Act, which limits abortion after 15 weeks.
SBA List launched a $2.5 million television and digital ad campaign, part of the group’s overall $10 million campaign to educate Americans about the stakes of the Dobbs late abortion case. Public opinion polls consistently show a strong majority of Americans reject pro-abortion extremism.
SBA List and its affiliates will spend $72 million during the 2021-2022 election cycle.
SBA List is a network of 900,000 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.
