Donald Trump's pro-life coalition has a new chairwoman: Marjorie Dannenfelser, president of the Susan B. Anthony List.

Dannenfelser, whose organization once said "Donald Trump is unacceptable," will now lead Trump's coalition against abortion. This announcement came with a statement from Trump pledging to fulfill four pro-life campaign goals if he's elected.

Trump vowed to nominate pro-life judges to the U.S. Supreme Court, to sign the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act to end late-term abortions, to defund Planned Parenthood as long as they perform abortions, and to enter the Hyde Amendment into law so as to end the use of taxpayer funds for abortions.

"For a candidate to make additional commitments during a general election is almost unheard of," Dannenfelser said, from The Washington Times. "The contrast could not be clearer between the two tickets, and I am proud to serve as National Chairwoman for Donald Trump's Pro-Life Coalition."

The Democratic party platform explicitly calls for an end to the Hyde Amendment.

"Hillary Clinton not only supports abortion on-demand for any reason," Trump's statement reads, "but she'd take it a step further: she wants to force the taxpayers to pay for abortions by repealing the bi-partisan Hyde Amendment. Hillary Clinton also supports abortion until an hour before birth. And she will only appoint Supreme Court justices who share this view."

California Planned Parenthood CEO Kathy Kneer told Capitol Weekly that "overall, from a national perspective, our biggest concern is that if Donald Trump becomes president he would take action to defund Planned Parenthood affiliates around the country."

Although Trump opposes abortion, he recently announced his support for over-the-counter birth control, saying "I think what we have in birth control is when you have to get a prescription, that's a pretty tough something to climb, and I would say it should not be a prescription — it should not be done by prescription."
