Pro-Life Women’s Group Launches New Abortion Outreach to Young Americans

Washington, DC (LifeNews.com) — A national pro-life women’s group has launched a new outreach to young people to encourage them to take a stand against abortion. The Susan B. Anthony List Education Fund’s new project, the Young Leaders Board, was created with a gift from its new spokeswoman.

Marilyn Musgrave, a former northern Colorado congresswoman, donated $50,000 from her congressional campaign committee to launch the new board.

“I am so pleased to support the Susan B. Anthony List Education Fund’s youth outreach efforts by supporting the new Youth Leaders Board,” Musgrave told LifeNews.com.

“As technology advances and sonograms continue to offer compelling visual evidence of the humanity of unborn children, we’re finding that the younger generation is more pro-life," she said.

"I’m confident the Susan B. Anthony List Education Fund will effectively marshal the energy and enthusiasm found among young pro-lifers to be a voice for women and the unborn for years to come," Musgrave continued.

The Youth Leaders Board will be comprised of young pro-life women leaders from across the country and will focus on youth leadership training with a emphasis on communications in order to train effective pro-life spokeswomen.

The Board will also permanently integrate a youth perspective into existing Susan B. Anthony new media outreach efforts, like Lia’s Challenge, the organization’s recent YouTube youth video contest.

Congresswoman Cathy McMorris Rodgers, a Washington state Republican, will serve as the Board’s honorary chairwoman.

“One of my priorities in Congress is to encourage women to get involved,” she said. “Through the use of new media and other communications tools, I look forward to helping the SBA List’s Young Leaders Board reach out to young, pro-life women.”

The new effort is an extension of Musgrave’s involvement with the Susan B. Anthony List. In March, she joined as the Director of Regional Outreach to run the organization’s new pro-life voter education effort, Votes Have Consequences.
