Pro-life Conference Keynote Speaker Recently Signed $500 Million Check To Planned Parenthood
The Susan B. Anthony List is a non-profit pro-life organization that works to elect politicians with a life-affirming agenda and bring an end to abortion. 2018 marked the 11th year that the organization held its Campaign For Life Gala. It is a chance to showcase the work accomplished and future goals.
In an interesting turn of events, this year's keynote speaker recently authorized $500,000,000 ($500 million) of funding for Planned Parenthood, the largest abortion provider in America. Less than 60 days after putting his signature on the omnibus spending bill that included the half billion dollars of funds, President Donald Trump stood before the Susan B. Anthony list and told the attendees how important it is to put people in office who will defund Planned Parenthood.
In a moment of corporate amnesia, the President stated, "When I ran for office, I pledged to stand for life, and as president, that's exactly what I have done and I have kept my promise and I think everybody here understands that totally." The attendees cheered and promised to vote against leaders who would continue to fund Planned Parenthood... present company excluded.
Marjorie Dannenfelser, president and an original organizer of Susan B. Anthony List was asked if it was appropriate to have as keynote speaker a man who authorized so many hundreds of millions of dollars to go to an abortion organization. Her response, "Well, it is less than 3% of what the President does."
