Election Day 2020: The Highest Number of Pro-Life Republican Women Ever Headed to Washington

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.

“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:

U.S. Senate:

  • Cynthia Lummis (R-WY) won election
  • Joni Ernst (R-IA), Shelley Moore Capito (R-WV), and Cindy Hyde-Smith (R-MS) won re-election

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.
