Susan B. Anthony List, a nationwide network of nearly one million pro-life advocates from across the country, today endorsed Congresswoman Claudia Tenney to represent New York’s newly drawn 24th Congressional District.
Claudia Tenney is a strong and compassionate pro-life advocate. As a member of Congress, she has consistently opposed left-wing efforts to enact radical abortion-on-demand policies. She continues to defend the longstanding prohibition on taxpayer funding for abortion and has led the charge in Washington to hold federal agencies accountable.
Susan B. Anthony List released the following statement in support of Congresswoman Tenney’s reelection:
“We are proud to endorse Congresswoman Claudia Tenney for re-election in New York’s 24th District. Rep. Tenney is a vocal and tenacious champion for life in the Empire State. From demanding that abortion giant Planned Parenthood repay taxpayers for illegally taking pandemic relief funds, to calling on the Biden administration to investigate recent attacks on pro-life organizations, Rep. Tenney fights relentlessly to hold Washington’s pro-abortion extremists accountable to the people. We’re so thankful for her leadership and look forward to continuing this important work together,” saidMarilyn Musgrave, SBA Pro-Life America’s vice president of government affairs.
In response to the endorsement, Tenney said:
“I am honored to have the support of Susan B. Anthony List once again. SBA List is leading the important fight to elect pro-life legislators. With the Supreme Court’s historic decision, I will continue to work in partnership with SBA List and, in the footsteps of courageous woman like Susan B. Anthony, work to protect the rights of the unborn and support expecting mothers and families. It is more important than ever for passionate advocates of life to come together to enact compassionate pro-life policies to ensure women and families have the tools, resources, and support they need to thrive.”
Susan B. Anthony List is made up of more than 900,000 pro-life advocates across the United States. SBA List previously endorsed Congresswoman Tenney in her 2020, 2018, 2016, and 2014 congressional races.
The group is named after suffragette Susan B. Anthony, who was strongly pro-life and has ties to New York’s 24th District. In 1872, Anthony voted in Ontario County, New York. She was later tried and convicted for doing so, since at that time it was still illegal for women to exercise their right to vote. Anthony was formally pardoned in 2020 by President Donald J. Trump for her courageous act of peaceful protest. In 2020, the street outside of the Ontario County Courthouse where she voted was formally renamed Susan B. Anthony Lane to honor the late suffragette’s courage and conviction to secure the full Constitutional rights of women.
