In the aftermath of a singularly high-stakes election, as President Donald Trump fights to ensure that every legal vote is counted, Joe Biden claims to want to unify our nation and even “heal” our collective soul. There is ample reason for skepticism. By all indications, Biden and Kamala Harris have not changed their plans to lead from the extreme Left on issues like abortion, contrary to the will of the overwhelming majority of Americans.
A record-breaking 17 new pro-life women were just elected to Congress – further proof that, as Republican Sen. Steve Daines of Montana remarked upon the confirmation of Supreme Court Justice Amy Coney Barrett, “There is no American dream that women can’t achieve,” and we don’t need abortion to do it.
Move over, Nancy Pelosi: Pro-life women are driving the new Republican surge in Congress – an unmistakable rebuke to Democrats’ radical abortion agenda. With several races still too close to call, the number of newly elected pro-life women is up to 16. Seven of these candidates flipped seats held by pro-abortion Democrats.
The pro-life movement in Congress made big gains as more than a dozen new anti-abortion Republican women were elected to the House of Representatives on Nov. 3. The number of pro-life women in the House in the 117th Congress more than doubled, with other races still to be called.
“This historic surge of pro-life women in Congress is continued proof that life is winning in America,” said SBA List President Marjorie Dannenfelser. “Nancy Pelosi and pro-abortion Democrats are now up against a stronghold of pro-life women who will stand up to their radical agenda and fight to protect longstanding pro-life policies including the Hyde Amendment and others like it, along with our gains under President Trump.
“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,” Ms. Dannenfelser said. “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.”
