WASHINGTON, D.C. – Susan B. Anthony List is challenging Democratic Senators who claim to be pro-life to oppose the abortion language in the Party Platform approved this weekend by the DNC Platform Committee. For the first time, the platform language calls for the repeal of the Hyde Amendment, longstanding bipartisan legislation which protects the conscience rights of taxpayers by ensuring public funds are not used for abortion on-demand.

Marjorie Dannenfelser, president of Susan B. Anthony List will address this and more in a speech delivered Wednesday, July 13 at 10 AM in the Murrow Room at the National Press Club. Ahead of the speech, Dannenfelseroffered the following comment:

“When it comes to abortion, the platform Democrats are expected to ratify in Philadelphia is unrecognizable compared to twenty years ago, when the party claimed to ‘respect the individual conscience of each American’ on the abortion, including members of the party. The 2016 platform is dramatically out of step with the position previously taken by several Democratic Senators, including Tim Kaine, currently being considered as Hillary Clinton’s running mate.

The SBA List is dedicated to pursuing policies and electing candidates who will reduce and ultimately end abortion. To that end, the SBA List emphasizes the education, promotion, mobilization, and election of pro-life women. The SBA List is a network of more than 365,000 pro-life Americans nationwide.
