At least 17 pro-life women have been elected to congress during the 2020 presidential election in what pro-life advocates call a “historic surge,” making a total of 27 pro-life women in congress.
Republican Young Kim defeated her Democrat incumbent Gil Cisneros Friday, becoming not only the second Republican candidate to flip a Democratic-held seat in California, but also the 17th pro-life woman to be elected to Congress during this election cycle.
Nine out of the 17 women elected thus far have flipped seats which were formerly held by pro-abortion Democrat incumbents, the pro-life group Susan B. Anthony List noted in a press release. (RELATED: ‘The Year Of The Republican Woman’: Here’s A List Of GOP Women Who Won 2020 Elections)
SBA List President Marjorie Dannenfelser said the wins are “a testament to the power of the life issue to motivate voters and unify Republicans to build a broad, winning coalition,” noting that there is “universal recognition” in the Republican Party of the importance of protecting “unborn children and their mothers.”
We did it!
To everyone who has done so much for the campaign, thank you. Tonight’s victory wouldn’t be possible without your efforts.
