Washington, D.C. – Today the national pro-life group Susan B. Anthony List (SBA List) celebrated the continued surge of pro-life women in the U.S. House of Representatives as Julia Letlow declared victory in Louisiana’s 5th Congressional District. Letlow announced her campaign to fill her late husband’s seat in February.

“We celebrate alongside Julia Letlow and are delighted she will join the largest-ever class of pro-life congresswomen in Washington. Her authentic pro-life, pro-woman leadership will serve Louisiana well,” said SBA List President Marjorie Dannenfelser. “In announcing her campaign, Julia shared her desire to bring light where there is darkness. This strength and compassion could not be more needed in Congress today. Emboldened by Joe Biden and Kamala Harris, Pelosi Democrats are shameless in their drive to impose their radical agenda of abortion on demand through birth, paid for by taxpayers. SBA List looks forward to working with Julia and all these inspirational women, new and returning, to fight abortion extremism.”

Out of the now 20 new pro-life women elected to the House, 11 of them flipped seats previously held by pro-abortion Democrats. This brings the number of pro-life women serving in the U.S. House overall to 31, more than double the previous record.
