Pro-Lifers Applaud Palin Pick

The influential pro-life Susan B. Anthony List is applauding John McCain’s selection of Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin as his running mate.

“Sarah Palin is the whole package. There couldn’t be a better vice presidential pick,” said Susan B. Anthony List President Marjorie Dannenfelser.

“Women voters are electrified, and Sarah is someone who is truly in sync with the way real American women think. She is a reform-minded woman who will give all Americans, born and unborn, the authentic leadership they deserve.”

“The majority of American women support commonsense restrictions on abortion. Adding Palin to the GOP ticket will resonate with independent women voters nationwide. By choosing the boldly pro-life Sarah Palin as his running mate, John McCain has taken his stand as the one true, authentic pro-life ticket.”

The Susan B. Anthony List is a nationwide network of over 147,000 Americans residing in all 50 states, dedicated to mobilizing, advancing, and representing pro-life women in politics.

In April of this year, Sarah Palin gave birth to her fifth child, Trig, who was born premature with Down Syndrome. Recent statistics cited by the Susan B. Anthony list show that in the U.S., approximately 90 percent of Down Syndrome diagnoses end with the mother choosing abortion.

Palin told the Anchorage Daily News about her family’s reaction to the diagnosis:

“We knew through early testing he would face special challenges, and we feel privileged that God would entrust us with this gift and allow us unspeakable joy as he entered our lives. We have faith that every baby is created for good purpose and has potential to make this world a better place. We are truly blessed.”

In 2006, Sarah Palin was endorsed by the Susan B. Anthony List Candidate Fund in her race for Alaska governor.

In addition to extensive fundraising for pro-life candidates, the Susan B. Anthony List announced that it will implement “When Women Vote, Pro-Life Candidates Win!”— a sophisticated voter mobilization program that will target over one million pro-life women voters across seven battleground states.

The organization plans to invest over $6 million in its 2008 election efforts.
