Marjorie Dannenfelser, president of the national anti-abortion group Susan B. Anthony List and its partner super PAC Women Speak Out, will speak Thursday, Jan. 15 at a Newsmaker's news conference.

In advance of the 42nd anniversary of the Supreme Court decision in Roe v. Wade and the annual March for Life, Marjorie Dannenfelser, president of the national anti-abortion group Susan B. Anthony List and its partner super PAC Women Speak Out, will review the movement's electoral victories and announce its legislative agenda on Thursday, Jan. 15 at a Newsmaker's news conference.

Dannenfelser will discuss anti-abortion expectations for the 2016 presidential race and how it plans to translate political wins into legislative victories at 10 a.m. Jan. 15 in the Bloomberg Room.

Both groups push for candidates and government policies that will curtail and ultimately end abortion. Since its founding, the SBA List has helped elect more than 100 anti-abortion candidates to the U.S. House of Representatives, 19 to the U.S. Senate, and 16 to other statewide offices across the country.

During the 2014 election cycle, the Susan B. Anthony List and its partners spent more than $15 million to defeat pro-choice incumbents and turn out voters through an unprecedented ground campaign. More than 700 activists knocked on more than 520,000 doors, making more than a million voter contacts in races critical to building a Senate majority.

Like all NPC Newsmakers events, this news conference is open to credentialed journalists and NPC members, free of charge. No advance registration is required.
