Thanks to the 2020 election, the number of pro-life Republican women in Congress has doubled dealing Nancy Pelosi a “stunning blow” to her power.
Susan B. Anthony List celebrated the election achievement in a Wednesday statement noting that this surge of pro-lief, female members of the House is a “resounding victory” to the pro-life movement.
“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,” said SBA List President Marjorie Dannenfelser. “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.”
“We are also very encouraged by the hard-fought re-election of Sen. Joni Ernst (R-IA) and the re-election of Sen. Cindy-Hyde Smith (R-MS), while welcoming Senator-elect Cynthia Lummis (R-WY) to the ranks of pro-life women in the Senate. We are ‘all in’ for Senator Kelly Loeffler’s runoff race in January and confident she will prevail,” Dannenfelser added.
Did SCOTUS make the right decision on medical mandates for large businesses?
“This is a resounding victory for pro-life women everywhere and an enormous advancement of Susan B. Anthony List’s mission. 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,” Dannenfelser concluded.
All 11 of the earlier pro-life representatives were re-elected. But an additional 13 new members were elected. And another 8 races have yet to be called, so this number may yet go up.
The list of pro-life Republican women in Congress includes:
- Cynthia Lummis (R-WY) won election
- Joni Ernst (R-IA), Shelley Moore Capito (R-WV), and Cindy Hyde-Smith (R-MS) won re-election
Kelly Loeffler (R-GA) advances to a runoff to take place January 5, 2021
Six pro-life women will serve in the U.S. Senate next Congress, seven if Sen. Loeffler wins the runoff and returns to the Senate.
