Washington, D.C., November 4, 2020 (LifeSiteNews) — Today the national pro-life group Susan B. Anthony List (SBA List) celebrated the surge of pro-life women elected to Congress during yesterday’s election.

“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,” she continued. “We are ‘all in’ for Senator Kelly Loeffler’s runoff race in January and confident she will prevail.”

“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.”

A full breakdown of pro-life women victories and races yet to be called follows:
