Former Republican vice-presidential candidate Paul Ryan, a pro-life Wisconsin congressman, will headline the annual gala for the Susan B. Anthony List.
Ryan will keynote the Susan B. Anthony List’s sixth annual Campaign for Life Gala on Thursday, April 11, 2013 in Washington, D.C., the group announced today in a statement to LifeNews.
“I’m honored to give the keynote address at the Susan B. Anthony List Gala. The SBA List and its 365,000 members across the country are leading the charge to protect life at all stages,” said Congressman Paul Ryan. “I am committed to working with the SBA List and all Americans to defend the dignity of every human life and protect the freedom of conscience and religion. Elected leaders must fight in behalf of society’s most vulnerable, and I thank the SBA List for providing a voice for the voiceless.”
Marjorie Dannenfelser, president of the Susan B. Anthony List, told LifeNews she is elated Ryan will headline the event.
“Not only does Congressman Ryan have a pristine pro-life voting record, he has proved himself to be one of the best communicators we have in the fight to defend Life. In Washington and across the country, he has repeatedly explained the pro-life position with clarity, compassion, and thoughtfulness,” she said. “Congressman Ryan respects the dignity of all human life and is committed to protecting women and unborn children, as well as our conscience rights and religious freedoms. We are honored to have this principled leader speak at this year’s Campaign for Life Gala.”

To that end, the SBA List emphasizes the education, promotion, mobilization, and election of pro-life women.
