WANT PRO-LIFERS IN CONGRESS?
Catalyst January/February Issue 1999
Catholics who want to see more pro-life members in the House of Representatives and the Senate are urged to join the Susan B. Anthony List.
Its mission statement says that it is “organized to train and elect pro-life women candidates to federal office.” It is a non-partisan, non-profit, 501 (c) (4) venture: the organization gives to Republican, Democratic and Independent women candidates who are pro-life, and is connected to a political action committee (PAC) called the SBS List Candidate Fund.
Susan B. Anthony, who helped organize the first American women’s conference in Seneca Falls, New York in 1848, was an early feminist who branded abortion “child murder.” It is to her cause that this organization is dedicated. Founded in 1993, the Susan B. Anthony List was established to counter the influence of Emily’s List, an organization that funds pro-abortion women candidates.
Members who want more information, or would like to join, are encouraged to write to Jane Abraham, President, Susan B. Anthony List, 228 South Washington Street, Suite 105, Alexandria, Virginia 22314. You can call at (703) 683-5558 or fax them at (703) 549-5588. Catholic League officers such as Vice President Bernadette Brady and Board Member John Murnane are active in the organization.
