2012: Palin to Keynote Susan B. Anthony List Breakfast

Sarah Palin will be the keynote speaker for an anti-abortion group's fundraiser in Washington, DC in May: the Susan B. Anthony Lists announced today that Palin will keynote its Celebration for Life Breakfast May 14 at the Ronald Reagan Building.

SBA List President Marjorie Dannenfelser gushed: "Susan B. Anthony would be proud of Governor Palin's consistent, passionate witness for women and the unborn, and especially her commitment to the families of children with special needs...Governor Palin is the modern personification of the authentic leadership modeled by early women's rights trailblazers like Susan B. Anthony and Elizabeth Cady Stanton. Our nation's earliest women leaders understood that women's rights could never be advanced at the expense of the broken rights of innocent unborn children."

Tim Pawlenty, meanwhile, keynoted an SBA List dinner in Washington last night.
