One of the nation’s leading pro-life organizations held its annual gala last night and announced that it plans to spend over $40 million dollars supporting President Donald Trump next year.
The Susan B Anthony List made the pledge to put significant amounts of money behind Trump and pro-life candidates during the crucial presidential elections in 2020. The investment is sorely needed given that dozens of radically pro-abortion Democrats have begun campaigns to replace Trump and they all support abortions up to birth and infanticide.
“We’ll work closely with our local allies on the most ambitious pro-life legislative agenda in history to aggressively challenge, erode, and finally overturn Roe v. Wade,” SBA List president Marjorie Dannenfelser said last night. “On top of this, we’ll be protecting our pro-life Senate majority, increasing our ranks in the House, and re-electing Donald Trump.”
Dannenfelser herself is a close ally of the Trump administration and served as the chair of the Trump campaign’s 2016 anti-abortion coalition, helping build support for him among voters who oppose abortion.
Going into 2020, Republicans and the Susan B. Anthony List will paint Democrats as extreme on abortion, pointing to recently passed bills in states like Illinois and New York that would ease restrictions on the procedure, Dannenfelser said.
“Going into 2020, abortion extremists are giving us an unlikely gift, are they not?” she said.
“They know that the Roe regime is unwinding and coming to an end. They are overreaching.”
“State lawmakers acting on their constituents’ will have been emboldened to advance pro-life legislation like never before,” she said, noting that they are some of the “strongest bills ever.”

Trump has fulfilled many of his campaign promises to pro-life voters. Many pro-lifers who were skeptical of his past pro-abortion stance have been pleasantly surprised by his administration’s efforts to protect the unborn.
Earlier this year, the Trump administration implemented a new Title X rule that cut $44 million in tax dollars from the abortion giant Planned Parenthood.
In one of his first acts as president, Trump also reinstated the Mexico City Policy, which prohibits international aid from going to groups that provide or promote abortions. That resulted in an additional $100 million in cuts to Planned Parenthood’s international arm, as well as cuts to other pro-abortion groups.
Other accomplishments include appointing pro-life people to key positions at the White House and federal courts, including the U.S. Supreme Court. His administration also stopped the HHS mandate that tried to compel faith-based employers to cover birth control drugs and devices that may cause abortions in their employee health plans.
During his first year in office, Trump also signed a bill to allow states to defund Planned Parenthood, the largest abortion chain in America.
Trump almost certainly will face a pro-abortion Democratic challenger in 2020. All of the prominent Democratic candidates so far support abortions for any reason up to birth, and many of them – including U.S. Sens. Kamala Harris, Cory Booker, Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders – voted against a bill to protect newborn babies from infanticide.
