Marjorie Dannenfelser is president of Susan B. Anthony Pro-Life America. With Dannenfelser at the helm of America’s largest grassroots pro-life political organization, the pro-life movement succeeded in electing a pro-life president and Senate, confirming three U.S. Supreme Court justices, and overturning Roe v. Wade. In the 2022 election cycle SBA Pro-Life America and its super PAC, Women Speak Out, raised more than $78 million and reached more than eight million pro-life voters through door-to-door canvassing, voter mail, texting, and digital communications. Previously in the 2020 cycle, their efforts helped elect the largest incoming class of pro-life congresswomen in history, with 19 new pro-life women and 30 total serving in the U.S. House of Representatives – more than double the previous record.
Called “the woman who brought down Roe” by the Los Angeles Times and others, Dannenfelser is the author of “Life is Winning: Inside the Fight for Unborn Children and Their Mothers,” which was ranked Amazon’s #1 New Release in NGO Policy upon its release in August 2020. She has also been published in TIME, the Wall Street Journal, Newsweek, USA Today, RealClearPolitics, The Washington Post, and National Review, among others, and profiled by New York Magazine, The Telegraph, The New Yorker, and The Washington Post.
In 2020 Dannenfelser was again named national co-chair of the Pro-Life Voices for Trump coalition, a role she held during the 2016 campaign after securing four groundbreaking pro-life commitments from the nominee. In 2017 she was appointed to the Women’s Suffrage Centennial Commission by U.S. Senate GOP Leader Mitch McConnell. In 2020, Dannenfelser served as a panelist on the President’s Commission on White House Fellowships. In addition, she served on Life Perspectives’ Task Force. She has been named to Politico’s Power List of 40 influential leaders for 2022 and Fox’s “rising political stars” for 2023. Previously she was one of Politico Magazine’s Top 50 Influencers, Washington Examiner’s top ten “Political Women on the Move,” Newsmax’s top 25 Most Influential Republican Women, and Newsweek’s top ten “Leaders of the Christian Right.” An alumna of Duke University, she and her husband Marty have five children.
