Would Susan B. Anthony Vote for Senators McCain or Obama?

SBA List President Retraces Susan B. Anthony’s Historic Footsteps at Minneapolis Republican National Convention
ST. PAUL, Minn., Sept. 4 /Christian Newswire/ — The day after GOP Vice Presidential nominee Sarah Palin’s address at the Republican National Convention, Susan B. Anthony List President Marjorie Dannenfelser commented on Minneapolis’ historic connection to women’s leadership:

“The Susan B. Anthony List is eager to have a visible presence at this year’s Republican National Convention,” said Susan B. Anthony List President Marjorie Dannenfelser. “The last GOP convention held in Minneapolis in 1892 was historic for women – the first female delegates were seated, and Susan B. Anthony herself attended. This year’s election carries historic implications of its own, this time with the first ever female pro-life vice presidential nominee, Sarah Palin.”

The Republican National Convention of 1892 was the first convention of its kind to seat women delegates. Susan B. Anthony led a suffrage rally, which was attended by friend and fellow abolitionist Frederick Douglass. The convention was also the first to be addressed by a woman, J. Ellen Foster, chairman of the Women’s Republican Association of the United States. Foster promoted plans for women’s involvement in national politics, and told the delegates, “We are here to help you, and we are here to stay.”

“From Susan B. Anthony on, strong pro-life women’s leadership has positively impacted the Republican Party. Authentic women’s rights will never be built upon the broken rights of other human beings. Both parties would do well to observe, embrace, and benefit from the strong and documented pro-life trend in America. Would Susan B. Anthony vote for Senators McCain or Obama? Given her consistent and unyielding commitment to human rights including the right to life, I’d say she’d vote McCain.”
