Record number of pro-life GOP women headed to Congress

Two days later, the presidential election remains unsettled, but one thing is certain: More pro-life Republican women are on their way to Congress. 

In news that must trouble Nancy Pelosi and the squad, the number of pro-life Republican women in Congress more than doubled and could still increase as there are still six candidates waiting to hear if they have won.

Pro-life wave

According to Marjorie Dannenfelser, president of Susan B. Anthony List, seven of the GOP candidates flipped pro-abortion seats:

“The surge of victorious pro-life women candidates in the U.S. House is a stunning blow to Nancy Pelosi and her pro-abortion agenda,” Dannenfelser noted. “So far, we have more than doubled the number of pro-life women in the House, with more races to be called. Seven pro-life women candidates flipped pro-abortion Democrat-held seats.”

In races yet to be called, eight pro-life women are awaiting results: Claudia Tenney (N.Y.-22), Victoria Spartz (Ind.-05), Beth Van Duyne (Texas-24), Esther Joy King (Ill.-17), Mariannette Miller-Meeks (Iowa-02), Young Kim (Calif.-39), Michelle Steel (Calif.-48), and Tiffany Shedd (Ariz.-01).

At least six pro-life Republican women will serve in the Senate: Joni Ernst (R-IA), Shelly Moore Capito (R-WV), and Cindy Hyde-Smith (R-MS) won reelection. Newly elected Rep. Cynthia Lummis (R-WY) will join Senators Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) and Deb Fischer (R-NB).

Senator Kelly Loeffler (R-GA) will be the seventh if she wins the run-off election in Georgia.

“The story of the night is the success of Republican women at the ballot box,” said Rep. Elise Stefanik (R-N.Y.) “For all these naysayers, we have proven that strong, Republican women are the best candidates to put on the ballot.”

Major win for America

Dannenfelser explained that the gains of pro-life candidates in the House and Senate indicate that Americans increasingly reject the radical abortion advocacy of late-term abortion on demand until the moment of birth as legislated in Virginia and New York.

This is a resounding victory for pro-life women everywhere and an enormous advancement of Susan B. Anthony List’s mission,” Dannenfelser declared. “We expect when all votes are counted and the races are called, we will have a record number of pro-life women serving in the next Congress. These gains are a repudiation of abortion extremism and further evidence that life is a winning issue in politics.”

As Hollywood celebrities and Democrat women run around shouting their abortions and states legalize what amounts to infanticide, the rest of the country grows more conservative and pro-life.

In fact, only 21% of Americans believe that abortion should be available for any reason, and up to the moment of birth. 70% of Americans believe abortion should only be available in the first trimester.

With more pro-life advocates in Congress and the Senate, and a Constitutional majority in the Supreme Court, the future is looking brighter for America as we get closer to ending the evil practice of abortion.
