(Jackson, MS) – Today, Mississippi’s Third District Congressman Michael Guest received an “A” rating from the new Susan B. Anthony List National Pro-Life Scorecard.
This “A” rating measures Congressman Guest’s record—including votes, co-sponsorships of key legislation, congressional letters and other pro-life work during the first session of the 116th Congress.
“The Susan B. Anthony List’s New Pro-Life Scorecard takes the pro-life movement to the next level, allowing us to show a dynamic, in-depth picture of each legislator’s record on life,” said Susan B. Anthony List’s President Marjorie Dannenfelser. “In a pivotal election year, when the Republican conference is united on the life issue and the stakes are higher than ever, merely voting pro-life is not enough – we expect and celebrate leadership. The Susan B. Anthony List National Pro-life Scorecard is a powerful tool to educate voters and empower them to hold abortion extremists accountable at the ballot box.”
“I’m very grateful to receive this ‘A’ rating for my work on pro-life issues and to be a voice for the unborn in the U.S. Congress,” said Congressman Michael Guest. “As a husband and father, I know that all life is a precious gift from God. Mississippians overwhelmingly support the right to life, and I will continue fighting for pro-life policies every day that I’m serving our state.”
The Susan B. Anthony List is a network of more than 837,000 pro-life Americans nationwide, dedicated to ending abortion by electing national leaders and advocating for laws that save lives, with a special calling to promote pro-life women leaders.
