Pro-life group endorses Romneyvows to spend $10M to defeat Obama

 Newscast Media WASHINGTON, D.C.The Susan B. Anthony List, a national pro-life group, announced on Thursday their endorsement of the presumed Republican presidential nominee, Mitt Romney, promising to spend millions to defeat President Obama in November.

"Now is the time to unite behind Governor Romney in order to defeat the most ideologically pro-abortion president in our nation's history," said Marjorie Dannenfelser, president of SBA List, in a written statement. "The SBA List is proud to endorse Governor Romney and plans to spend $10 to $12 million in senate and presidential battleground states mobilizing pro-life voters to ensure victory."

The endorsement of Romney signals that SBA and similar pro-life organizations are committed to defeating President Obama, whom they view as "unfriendly and dangerous" to the unborn.

But Romney has not always been seen as a Republican who was willing to fight for pro-life causes. In 1994 when Romney ran for the U.S. Senate against the late Sen. Ted Kennedy, he adopted a pro-abortion position with the permission of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

However, when he ran for governor of Massachusetts in 2002, he had changed his position to one of opposing abortion in most cases.

The group's unanimous endorsement of Romney was based on a number of factors, including his pledge to defund Planned Parenthood, to nominate pro-life judges to the federal bench, and to choose a pro-life running mate.     

"The difference between Governor Romney and President Obama couldn't be clearer, which is why our Board of Directors voted unanimously to get behind him," said Jane Abraham, chairman of the SBA List Board of Directors. "It is the responsibility of all pro-life voters to now unite behind Governor Romney. Together we can put a pro-life leader in the White House."       Add Comments>>
