PRO-LIFE VOTING: WANT TO KNOW HOW OUR PRESIDENTIAL TEAMS STACK UP TO FUTURE PRO-LIFE POLICIES? (Susan B. Anthony newsletter SEE BELOW)
|Dear Pro-life Friend,
This morning in a letter to pro-life leaders, Donald Trump added a fourth pro-life promise to his existing three commitments on the life issue.
He also announced in the letter that our own Marjorie Dannenfelser will serve as National Chairwoman for his Pro-life Coalition. (Check out a few of the news stories in The Hill, Politico, & USA Today).
In light of the letter – and Mr. Trump’s new commitment to protecting the conscience rights of pro-life taxpayers by making the Hyde Amendment permanent law – we put together the below graphic to show how the two presidential candidates stack up.
If you found this graphic helpful, I hope you’ll forward it to five friends to share with them just how different the two tickets are when it comes to abortion.

Good Pro-Life review regarding Mike Pence, Running Mate for Trump from Susan B. Anthony’s List:
Dear Pro-life Friend,
Greetings from Cleveland, Ohio!
Your SBA List team traveled to the Republican National Convention this week to be a strong voice for those without one. Yesterday – along with our friends at the Family Research Council, we held a “Celebrating Life & Values” event to honor the strong pro-life Congressmen, Senators and Governors who represent us – and even more importantly – the babies.
We were so encouraged when Governor Mike Pence took to the stage at the Convention to impress upon the gathering just how important our fight for the Supreme Court and the sanctity of every human life really is.
I wanted to make sure you saw yesterday’sTIME Magazine article which featured comments from Marjorie on Trump’s selection of Mike Pence as his running mate – here’s an excerpt:
Marjorie Dannenfelser was traveling to a Council for National Policy meeting last week with a longtime Mike Pence advisor when she heard the news that Donald Trump had picked the Indiana governor as his running mate.
Ever since Trump won Indiana in early May, the president of the Susan B. Anthony List and many other social conservative leaders have been weighing how Trump would handle their policy priorities, on everything from abortion to judicial nominees. But with Pence, there is no need to wonder—for the last two cycles Dannenfelser even tried to recruit him to run for president.
“Honestly, I began to breathe an exhale, and start to think, okay, we can accomplish this,” she says. “It’s really hard to run an election on reluctant ascent. If you can’t win your base, you can’t win. … It’s a whole new ballgame now.” [Continue Reading…]
Mike Pence truly is a trail-blazer for the Pro-Life Movement, leading the charge to defund America’s largest abortion business Planned Parenthood, and to protect every single human LIFE.
This makes Trump’s decision to pick him as his VP a clear reinforcement of the three key commitments the presumptive Republican nominee has made on our issue:
And your SBA List team will be right there, every step of the way to ensure that each of these three critical victories becomes a reality.
Please make a gift today to allow us to continue being a strong voice on Capitol Hill on behalf of pro-life constituents like you – and to get behind proven pro-life candidates who will advocate courageously for LIFE once they get into office.

Thank you for standing with us as we raise our voices together for the innocent victims of abortion.

Planned Parenthood Offices: PP’s 59 independent affiliate-owned businesses enjoy $58 million in profits annually. Our local PP businesses in Seaside and Salinas are part of Planned Parenthood Mar Monte which owns 33 centers in CA and receives $96 million in taxpayer money or (83%) of their income.
Birth Control Profit Model: Most people do not realize that PP also makes a tremendous profit from selling birth control pills to young women. Normal pharmacy purchases one month’s supply of birth control for @$22 and sells for @$28; PP purchases one month’s supply (as a non-profit and for a volume discount) at @$1.50 and sells for @$18
CA Birth Control Laws for Minors: In CA it is legal for an eleven year old girl to receive birth control, a 5yr Nor-plant injection, or an abortion during school hours, or young men to access condoms, without a parent’s permission or knowledge, even though a school nurse could not administer an Advil or Tylenol to the same student, because of a law that enables a minor to receive unlimited access to “reproductive health care.”
Planned Parenthood “religion” of Secular Humanism: PP promotes their religion of “secular humanism” to our youth, thereby decreasing their interest in a God-based faith and the practicing of their parents’ religion. This has happened in Germany, France and Denmark so that church attendance between 15-19 year olds has plummeted from 80% to 8% in a generation!
Planned Parenthood National Goals: PP is currently losing business nation-wide and has failed to successfully launch PP “mega-centers” (10,000 sq ft. clinics) in malls and other prominent locations. Only one of 18 mega-centers has launched successfully. PP has current business plans to “beautify” each office to increase business and profits. We can shut off funds to PP including limiting their exposure to our youth in schools, Girl Scouts, and 4H clubs, thereby, reducing their business so that they will be shut down in our communities. When members of our House of Representatives no longer have a PP in their jurisdiction, they lose interest in funding them. Since PP is accountable for 1/3 of all abortions in the US annually, we can make great strides in reducing the number of abortions in CA. As well, we can help prevent PP from infiltrating our schools and youth groups, as well as reduce our tax-payer contributions to PP in CA. (Please note these funds can be re-directed to other pregnancy and health care centers to provide the services people need.)
Reference Materials: Jim Sedlak, has written a book called “Parent Power” (which can be downloaded on his website for free) to explain how we as parents and grandparents can take control back over our children and grandchildren and limit the indoctrination that our young people are receiving from the culture and especially PP. Also, on the American Life League website there is a “Culture of Life Studies” Program for parents, church leaders, and Sunday school teachers “that teaches the truth about the value of all human beings, the sacredness of the sacrament of marriage, and the necessity of the family as the building block of society.”
Here are some PP terms meant to deceive us and our youth:
WE ACCURATELY CALL IT THEY CALL IT
A corporate business with franchises/affiliates “non-profit health care org”
Profit “income after expenses”
fetus/unborn baby/developing human “product of conception”
separate human with unique DNA “my body, my choice”
PP TRY’S TO UNDERMINE GOD’S COMMANDMENTS WITH SECULAR HUMANISM
#1 priority =God #1 priority = sex
Honor thy Mother and Father Confidentiality from parents
Thou shall not kill “terminating a pregnancy/ blob of tissue”
Thou shall not commit adultery sex anytime, anywhere
Report: END OF LIFE OPTION ACT (AKA ASSISTED SUICIDE BILL)
On Friday April 29th, I attended Senator Monning’s Town Hall meeting on what California is calling the “End of Life Option Act” which will become law in about one month. I will state upfront that I am repulsed by the suicide “cocktail” as they are euphemistically referred to by our Senator and extremely cynical about all of it’s apparent “safeguards.” Unfortunately, this like all the other laws that initially allow Doctors and hospitals to “opt out” of compliance because of conscience, it will only be a matter of time until all doctors and hospitals are forced to comply and our tax money will be used to pay for the lethal mix of poisons as a “medical treatment.” I also believe as this becomes more and more commonplace in our society, the sick and elderly will receive considerable unspoken pressure to end their lives and spare the expense, time and care associated with their end of life needs. This is as far from “Compassionate Care” as abortion is, and the same rhetoric of “choice,” “control,” “comfort,” “compassionate relief from suffering” are all used to describe the new law. I have attached the Bill at the bottom of my email if you wish to read it in it’s entirety. If you have the opportunity, please prepare your loved ones and yourself in advance for this “alternative” (that will by law need to be presented to those in “terminal” situations) that is unfortunately so contradictory to true compassion and true care.

Planned Parenthood-Stalking Brazilian Zika Babies to Kill
A California Parental Notification of Abortion Initiative (#15-0025) has been approved for circulation in California as a contender for the November 8, 2016 ballot, as an initiated constitutional amendment.
The measure, upon voter approval, would require parental notification in order for a minor to have an abortion.
Prayer for the Protection of Religious Liberty
O God our Creator, from your provident hand we have received our right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.
You have called us as your people and given us the right and the duty to worship you, the only true God, and your Son, Jesus Christ.
Through the power and working of your Holy Spirit, you call us to live out our faith in the midst of the world, bringing the light and the saving truth of the Gospel to every corner of society.
We ask you to bless us in our vigilance for the gift of religious liberty. , Give us the strength of mind and heart to readily defend our freedoms when they are threatened; give us courage in making our voices heard on behalf of the rights of your Church and the freedom of conscience of all people of faith.
Grant, we pray, O heavenly Father, a clear and united voice to all your sons and daughters gathered in your Church in this decisive hour in the history of our nation, so that, with every trial withstood and every danger overcome—for the sake of our children, our grandchildren, and all who come after us—
this great land will always be “one nation, under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.”
We ask this through Christ our Lord.
