Extraordinary Lineup of Pro-life Convention Speakers Stands in Stark Contrast to Democrats’ Silence
Washington, D.C. – Tonight at the Republican National Convention, Vice President Mike Pence called out Joe Biden and Kamala Harris for supporting taxpayer-funded abortion on demand up to the moment of birth.
Pence’s remarks come as speakers at the Democratic National Convention last week avoided the topic of abortion. In contrast, the Republican National Convention has prominently featured pro-life speakers such as former Planned Parenthood director turned pro-life advocate Abby Johnson; Covington Catholic High School graduate Nick Sandmann; Sister Deirdre Byrne, a Catholic nun and medical doctor who served in the U.S. Army Medical Corps; former Notre Dame football coach Lou Holtz; activist Chen Guangcheng; and more.
The national pro-life group Susan B. Anthony List (SBA List) praised Vice President Pence’s comments and President Trump’s pro-life leadership in a statement:
“We are proud to have a president and vice president who stand unapologetically for life. The contrast to the Democrats is stark,” said SBA List President Marjorie Dannenfelser, who serves as national co-chair of Pro-Life Voices for Trump. “While Joe Biden, Kamala Harris, and other prominent Democrats spent their entire convention downplaying their radical agenda, Americans watching the Republican National Convention have heard the most explicit pro-life messages since then-candidate Donald Trump exposed Hillary Clinton’s extreme support for late-term abortion in the final debate of 2016. The contrast between the two sides could not be clearer. Life is winning and Americans support compassionate pro-life policies that safeguard the lives of unborn children and their mothers.
“This extraordinary moment would not be possible without the bold leadership of President Trump and Vice President Pence. Thanks to them, the Republican Party is unified and energized on this issue and life is winning in America.”
Dannenfelser is the author of “Life is Winning,” which details how the pro-life cause went from being perceived as a political “problem” to a winning issue. She also describes how pro-life advocates like Abby Johnson and citizen journalist David Daleiden have exposed Planned Parenthood’s role in the brutal harvest and sale of baby body parts.
