Texas Governor Rick Perry has become the latest presidential candidate to sign the Susan B. Anthony List Pro-life Presidential Leadership Pledge.
Governor Perry joins Michele Bachmann, Thad McCotter, Ron Paul, Tim Pawlenty, Rick Santorum, and Newt Gingrich in committing to be a true leader for Life in the White House if elected President.
In signing the Pledge, Governor Perry remarked:
"I not only pledge to protect unborn life, but have a record of doing so in Texas. I have long advocated adoption as an alternative to abortion in order to protect unborn children."

As you know, the SBA List has asked all declared presidential candidates to sign our Pro-life Leadership Pledge. Signers commit to:
- Nominate only constitutionalist Judges,
- Select only pro-life appointees for relevant Cabinet and Executive Branch positions,
- Permanently end all taxpayer funding of abortion both at home and abroad, including defunding Planned Parenthood abortion providers, and
- Advance and sign into law a Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act to protect unborn children who are capable of feeling pain from abortion.
James Pat, when pro-life presidential candidates swept the Ames Iowa Straw Poll earlier this month, the message could not have been anymore clear to the media, the Republican Party, and the rest of the nation: Life matters, and only an authentic pro-life leader will be able to defeat President Obama in 2012.
That’s why we’re going to need all hands on deck in laying the groundwork for a pro-life victory in 2012.
Will you start by signing the Pro-life Citizen’s Pledge and then sending an email to at least 10 of your pro-life family, friends and neighbors asking them to sign as well?
We’ve got to swell the ranks of the pro-life army if we’re going to achieve victory next November. Getting another candidate Pledge-signer is a great step, but now it’s time for the grassroots to answer the call and sign the Citizen’s Pledge.
Thank you for your continued partnership in the fight for Life.
