As we head into the homestretch of the election, we have a large, and unprecedented announcement to make —
Today, SBA List released a letter Donald Trump wrote announcing his decision to team up with SBA List President, Marjorie Dannenfelser, to Chair his campaign’s Pro-Life Coalition.
In his letter, Trump not only re-iterates the three pro-life commitments he made early in his campaign, he adds a fourth, pledging to make permanent the Hyde Amendment, which protects American taxpayers from funding of abortion. Here are his pro-life commitments included in the letter:
- Nominating pro-life justices to the U.S. Supreme Court.
- Signing into law the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, which would end painful late-term abortions nationwide.
- Defunding Planned Parenthood as long as they continue to perform abortions and reallocating their funding to community health centers that provide comprehensive health care for women.
- Making the Hyde Amendment permanent law to protect taxpayers from having to pay for abortions.
You helped SBA List capture a pro-life Senate in 2014. Since then, SBA List has been on offense, working tirelessly to put the pieces in place to pass real, impactful, national pro-life laws that protect unborn children and their mothers from abortion. Donald Trump’s public statement, and Marjorie’s role, are unprecedented steps forward toward this goal. Below you can find the article that was featured in USA Today highlighting this major announcement.
Thank you for making our work to save lives possible.
