Speaker of the House Republican Conference, Elise Stefanik, promotes Republicans’ commitment to the sanctity of life a year after the Supreme Court’s Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Org., which ushered in the landmark abortion case Roe v. Wade. fell over.
“This is a historic moment for the American people,” Stefanik told DailyMail.com in an exclusive interview Tuesday with the National Press Club, which unveiled his landmark deal with Susan B. Anthony’s Pro-Life America group.
“As the youngest mom in Congress, I gave birth to my son, Sam, almost two years ago. I know the importance of standing up and protecting the most precious and vulnerable among us, the unborn,” she mentioned.
Marjorie Dannenfelser, president of SBA Pro-Life America, said Stefanik is a strong “role model” and steadfast in her commitment to life. The group supported Stefanik when she first ran for Congress in 2013, when she was “really unknown,” the top lawmaker added.
“This is a historic moment for the American people,” Stefanik told DailyMail.com in an exclusive interview on Tuesday.
Dannenfelser told DailyMail.com that after Dobbs, the “most important” event for the pro-life movement is who is elected “President of the United States” in 2024.
The upcoming part of the debate “will be a very important part of the debate on the issue of abortion,” continued the SBA list president.
“Whoever sits in this Oval Office will be leading the country at a very important and tender time for women and children, so may the best man or woman win,” she said.
The SBA checklist has not been particularly supportive of the 2024 GOP primary and has threatened a marketing campaign for Trump or another presidential candidate who does not support the 15-week abortion ban.
Stefanik, who was a key member of the GOP leadership that pledged to help President Trump in 2024, says she still supports him despite his arrest last week on 37 federal charges related to his alleged mishandling of classified documents and obstruction of justice.
“I’m proud to support President Trump,” she told DailyMail.com on Tuesday. “I am proud that today’s Republican Party has such strong pro-life leaders at the federal level, at the state level, and of course in our presidential candidates.”
Stefanik said that Republicans, who represent the majority of the House of Representatives, have a “real opportunity” to indicate their “lifetime commitment.”
She then blasted Democrats, whom she called pro-abortion “radicals and extremists.”

SBA List President Marjorie Dannenfelser said Stefanik is a strong “role model” and unwavering in her dedication.
“As the youngest mom in Congress, I gave birth to my son, Sam, almost two years ago,” Stefanik said.
‘She on-demand abortions paid for by the taxpayer, including late-term abortions up to and after birth. It’s not a consensus in America,” she exclaimed.
“These are Republicans who stand for the consensus in America,” she added, detailing GOP laws that help increase child tax credit points and criticizing the Biden administration for its lack of child nutrition.
As for whether there should be a statewide abortion ban, Stefanik said there should be “common sense” that taxpayer money is not used for abortions.
She is a co-sponsor of a bill that would ban abortion after 12 weeks, except for rape, incest and the life of the mother.
Stefanik further added that continued congressional support for the Hyde Amendment, which prohibits taxpayer money from being used for abortions, is critical.
