The pro-life group Susan B. Anthony List is embracing a new name: Susan B. Anthony Pro-Life America — or SBA Pro-Life America.
“We've really kind of outgrown the ‘list’ part of our name,” Mallory Carroll, the vice president of communications, told CNA on Wednesday. “SBA Pro-Life America reflects both our history and our growth into the policy and political muscle, that arm that we've become.”
The group began in 1992 as a counter to EMILY’s List — which exists to get Democratic pro-choice women elected — by giving pro-life women a voice in politics.
“Thirty years ago, the loudest voices in politics belonged to the abortion lobby and America’s pro-life women were seldom heard,” Marjorie Dannenfelser, the president of SBA Pro-Life America, said in a press release. “Today, women are at the forefront of historic life-affirming change in state legislatures and in Washington, and the pro-life movement is at the threshold of a new era.”
