Washington, D.C. – Today Vice President Mike Pence tweeted a statement of support for Diane Black in her race for governor of Tennessee. The national pro-life group Susan B. Anthony List (SBA List) responded saying:
“We are honored to stand with Vice President Mike Pence in supporting pro-life champion Congressman Diane Black as she runs for governor of Tennessee,” said SBA List President Marjorie Dannenfelser. “Susan B. Anthony List is proud to endorse Diane and we are so encouraged that the Vice President has highlighted her exceptional courage. From investigating America’s largest abortion business, Planned Parenthood, for its role in trafficking baby body parts, to stopping taxpayer funding of the abortion industry, to speaking out against late-term abortion, she is a true champion of the defenseless unborn who deserves the vote of every pro-life Tennessean. We look forward to seeing Tennessee make even greater strides to protect the most vulnerable under her leadership.”
Rep. Diane Black is a former clinical care nurse who has represented Tennessee’s sixth congressional district since 2011. She is a member of both the House Pro-life Caucus and the Pro-life Women’s Caucus. She served on the Select Investigative Panel for Infant Lives, tasked with investigating the abortion industry’s role in the harvest and sale of aborted babies’ body parts for profit, and is the chief sponsor of legislation passed by the U.S. House that defunds Planned Parenthood.
Black is an outspoken supporter of both the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act and the Born Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act. She also authored the pro-life Conscience Protection Act. In 2017 she received the Marilyn Musgrave Defender of Life Award at SBA List’s tenth annual Campaign for Life Gala.
Susan B. Anthony List and its partner super PAC, Women Speak Out spent more than $18 million in the 2016 election cycle, visiting more than 1.1 million homes in battleground states to defeat Hillary Clinton and maintain a pro-life Senate. SBA List is dedicated to pursuing policies and electing candidates who will reduce and ultimately end abortion. To that end, SBA List emphasizes the education, promotion, mobilization, and election of pro-life women. SBA List is a network of more than 630,000 pro-life Americans nationwide.
