Six possible Republican presidential candidates for 2024 will speak on Monday and Tuesday at the Pro-Life Leaders Summit organized by Susan B. Anthony List in Palm Beach, Florida.
Former President Donald Trump will headline the Monday session of the conference. He has repeatedly teased that he would run again for president in 2024.
Trump will be joined by Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis and Sen. Rick Scott for the Monday session. Both of them are considered by many as possible contenders for the next presidential elections.
Meanwhile, Sen. Tim Scott will be the one headlining the session on Tuesday. He is considered to be a rising star among GOP contenders following his rebuttal of President Joe Biden’s address to Congress last week. Scott’s rebuttal speech has earned rave reviews from many Republicans.
Also speaking on the Tuesday session are Sens. Mark Rubio of Florida and Ted Cruz of Texas. Both of them had already run in the 2016 GOP presidential race and both may possibly run again in 2024. Former Vice President Mike Pence, meanwhile, will deliver an address to the conference via video.
SBA List has said it aims to stop abortion by choosing the right national leaders and advocating for laws that would save lives. They also aim to promote pro-life female leaders. Because of their mission, SBA List’s events have attracted many potential White House hopefuls from the Republican Party. Social conservative individuals have long been a huge part of the GOP base.
Potential 2024 Republican Presidential Candidates to Speak About Protecting Life
As per excerpts in advance of the speeches they plan to deliver, DeSantis would focus on how he has chosen to appoint Supreme Court Justices in his state who have respect for the rule of law and for the people’s religious liberty. He will also mention how he has approved of legislation that is pro-family and pro-life.
Meanwhile, pence will choose to focus on thanking the organization for supporting the Trump-Pence administration as it has become “the most pro-life administration in history.”
On the other hand, both Cruz and Rubio will take aim and criticize the way Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris are currently running the country.
Cruz will point out that elected officials have the important responsibility of protecting the right to life. He would then call out Biden and Harris, claiming that they have failed to do this responsibility. He would also say both the president and vice president’s views on abortion are the opposite of what America wants.
Rubio, on the other hand, will argue that the current administration is mainly made up of “pro-abortion radicals” who aims to make it easier for people to “deny freedom” to unborn children. He would also highlight that he will never stop pushing to protect the rights of the unborn.
Other speakers at the engagement would also likely criticize Biden for failing to mention the abortion issue during his speech last week.
