The board of directors of the Susan B. Anthony List, a national pro-life organization, has voted unanimously to endorse Governor Romney for President. The announcement came as part of an op-ed published yesterday by the group’s president, Marjorie Dannenfelser, at National Review Online.
In June of 2011, some social conservatives showed concern that Romney had actually refused to sign the SBA pledge, but in doing so the Governor immediately released his own pro-life pledge with concrete commitments to govern as a pro-life leader. Dannenfelser identifies Romney’s pledge by saying, “Rather than just check the pro-lifebox, Governor Romney went on to make concrete commitments.”
The SBA President then names and expounds on what those commitments are. Namely:
- Defund Planned Parenthood and Big Abortion
- End U.S. support of abortion overseas
- Protect unborn children capable of feeling pain from abortion
- Appoint constitutionalist justices to the Supreme Court
- Select a pro-life vice-presidential running mate
Governor Romney has made it clear that he is the pro-life candidate in this race — which is why the SBA List Board of Directors voted unanimously to stand behind him in April. It is the responsibility of all pro-life voters to now unite behind Governor Romney. Together we can put a pro-life leader in the White House.
