A record number of pro-life women will now be serving in Congress, including 13 new Republicans, seven of whom have replaced pro-abortion Democrat-held seats. These election victories mean the number of pro-life women in the House will double.

All 11 pro-life women incumbents won reelection, while at least 13 new pro-life women will join the House in January. Maria Salazar, Fla.; Yvette Herrell, N.M.; Michelle Fischbach, Minn.; Nancy Mace, S.C.; Stephanie Brice, Okla.; Ashley Hinson, Iowa; and Nicole Malliotakis, N.Y.; flipped Democrat-held seats. Six other pro-life women will replace pro-life men in the House: Lauren Boebert, Colo.; Lisa McClain, Mich.; Kat Cammack, Fla.; Diana Harshbarger, Tenn.; Mary Miller, Ill. and Marjorie Taylor Greene, Ga.

At least six pro-life women will also serve in the U.S. Senate in January. They are Sens. Joni Ernst, Iowa; Cindy Hyde-Smith, Miss.; Shelley Moore Capito, W.Va.; Cynthia Lummis, Wyo.; Marsha Blackburn, Tenn.; and Deb Fischer, Neb.

Eight races featuring pro-life women have not been called.

Liberty Counsel founder and Chairman Mat Staver said, “It is encouraging to know that despite the media-driven ‘blue wave’ lie, the number of conservative, pro-life women in Congress has doubled. These women who value the sanctity of life will now be serving in the U.S. House and Senate.

“These pro-life women will bring new energy to Washington to preserve precious preborn children. This is another important step to making the womb a safe place again in America.” {eoa}
