My generation remembers the 1978 Enjoli perfume commercial featuring an attractive career woman’s sultry opening lyric, “I can bring home the bacon, fry it up in a pan.” Is Kellyanne Conway the mythical modern day “superwoman” who can do it all?
Kellyanne is the first woman in American history to lead a winning presidential campaign! She did this while being a wife, mother of four, operating her own business, serving as Donald Trump’s campaign manager, and always “quick on the draw” in high-profile television interviews. How did she keep all those plates spinning?
It helps being smart and Kellyanne is brilliant! She received her B.A. magna cum laude in Political Science from Trinity College (Washington D.C.) in 1989. While studying at Oxford University she was elected Phi Beta Kappa. In 1992, Kellyanne earned a J.D. with honors from the George Washington University Law School
After securing the election for Trump, Kellyanne has accepted the position as “counselor to the president” and will work with senior Trump leadership to effectively message and execute the President’s legislative priorities and actions. Will her presence help save the lives of America’s unborn?
Pro-life Americans should celebrate the refreshing news of having an unwavering pro-life champion so close to the ear of our new president and other senior staffers. This would not have happened in a new Clinton administration.
Marjorie Dannenfelser serves as president of the Susan B. Anthony List, a non-profit organization with over 350,000 members that exists to pass laws protecting the unborn and their mothers from abortion. Marjorie gives high praise to Kellyanne by saying:
I have known and trusted Kellyanne Conway my entire professional life. No one is better at understanding what real people are thinking and how to connect with them than Kellyanne. She and Steve both understand the importance of effectively communicating the pro-life position and leveraging the passion of the pro-life grassroots in winning elections. No two could be better positioned to help Donald Trump to take on and expose Hillary Clinton’s extremism in this general election (per LifeNews.com).
Dave Andrusho, National Right to Life’s(NRLC) editor, says that Kellyanne is “someone who has labored in the trenches for decades on behalf of unborn babies, someone who in the past has polled for National Right to Life …”
“Kellyanne has worked tirelessly throughout her career as an advocate for the pro-life movement,” says Rep. Marsha Blackburn, Chair of the Select Panel on Infant Lives.
During the campaign, the mainstream media put Tim Kaine, Hillary’s VP running mate, “on a pedestal” as being a “devout” Catholic notwithstanding his commitment to abortion-on-demand and same-sex marriage. Quite the opposite has been Kellyanne’s commitment to Catholic teachings. She has been a serious pro-marriage and pro-life advocate for decades.
Dave Andrusho (NRLC) also informs us that Kellyanne will not be the only pro-lifer in the new administration of Donald Trump. A partial list includes Sen. Jeff Sessions, as Attorney General; Rep. Tom Price, secretary of Health and Human Services; Chief of Staff Reince Priebus; Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos; HUD secretary Dr. Ben Carson; Secretary of Labor Andrew Puzder; former Texas Gov. Rick Perry to lead the Department of Energy; Rep. Mike Pompeo to be director of the CIA; Scott Pruitt who will be director of the Environmental Protection Agency; and Gov. Nikki Haley, who will be our nation’s ambassador to the U.N.
Abortion is a symptom of the love-life of America! It is proof that the love of many has grown cold. A heartless self-centeredness now calls the shots on evil and good. Many who say they believe in God must also believe that God has lowered His standards for our generation because we are “special.” God has not lowered His standards one iota.
As Kellyanne Conway takes her seat at the table of the Trump Whitehouse, many in the pro-life community now have higher hopes that her influence will play a positive role in fighting the evil of abortion. You go, girl!
