APPF Honors Marjorie Dannenfelser for Her Work to End Abortion in America
WASHINGTON — Yesterday at its annual gala, American Principles Project Foundation (APPF) presented Marjorie Dannenfelser, president of Susan B. Anthony Pro-Life America, with its Jeff Bell Human Dignity Award, recognizing her decades of leadership in the fight to end abortion.
Since 1992, Dannenfelser has worked tirelessly to advance the group’s mission of ending abortion by electing national leaders and advocating for laws that save lives, with a special calling to promote pro-life women leaders.
“Jeff Bell was a friend and visionary who keenly understood the importance of fighting in the political and policy arenas for the foundational values about which we care so deeply. I am honored to receive this award that pays tribute to his legacy,” said Dannenfelser. “Because the pro-life movement engaged strategically using the tools of democracy, we are now poised to save millions of lives in this new era following the Dobbs Supreme Court victory. Our friends at American Principles Project are key allies in the social conservative movement and are using the same approach to prove our ability to win on the issues.”
APPF President Terry Schilling also released the following statement:
“Without Marjorie’s dedication, smarts, courage, and the team that she masterfully assembled, we would not be celebrating the Dobbs decision that overturned Roe this year. Over the years, Marjorie was willing to take calculated risks and stand alone in advocating political investment in the pro-life issue at times when many believed wrongly that it was unpopular or even impossible.”
The Jeff Bell Human Dignity Award is named for APPF’s co-founder, longtime policy director, and conservative movement pioneer Jeff Bell (1943-2018) and is given in recognition of extraordinary leadership in defense of human dignity and the family in the political arena.
