What the Midterm Results Mean for the Pro-Life Movement
Election day was filled with highs and lows, with some results still pending, but one thing is clear: candidates with strong pro-life convictions won the day. After Roe v. Wade was overturned, the abortion lobby invested nearly $400 million into the abortion debate to sow confusion and spread misinformation, which we saw play out on election night. Despite these best efforts, however, we saw pro-life candidates, particularly pro-life Governors who recently passed strong life-affirming legislation, have double-digit wins across the country.
We also anticipate having a new pro-life majority in the U.S. House of Representatives once all the votes are counted. We will work tirelessly with pro-life members of Congress to enact robust pro-life policies that protect both mom and baby.
Today, more than ever, we must also continue to march, both in Washington, D.C. and in the states, in order to change hearts and minds and combat the onslaught of abortion extremism. Marching in the states is increasingly critical, as we saw disappointing results on the ballot initiatives in California, Michigan, and Kentucky.
However, the efforts made by many of you who knocked on doors, phone banked, and educated your friends on these ballot measures made a difference. Even in a state like California, we saw an upward shift in people who identify as pro-life by nearly 10% following the campaign against Proposition 1, and those who identify as pro-choice dropped by nearly 7%.
The critical nature of our mission to be a voice for the voiceless in the public square is evident now more than ever, not only here on Capitol Hill, but in the critical battlegrounds in the states.
