(LifeSiteNews) — Pro-life judicial candidates won big during Tuesday’s election in Pennsylvania, including winning seats on the Keystone State’s supreme court.

“Kevin Brobson will sit on the state Supreme Court; Megan Sullivan will secure a seat on the Superior Court; Stacy Wallace will win a seat on the Commonwealth Court; and Drew Crompton will continue to serve on the Commonwealth Court,” the Pennsylvania Pro-Life Federation (PPLF) announced Wednesday.

The National Right to Life affiliate announced victory over Planned Parenthood, which had worked to stop the election of the pro-life judicial candidates.

“Pro-abortion forces had advertised the statewide court races as a preview of coming attractions in 2022,” Legislative Director Maria Gallagher said. “Next year, Pennsylvania will be electing a new Governor and a new U.S. Senator, in addition to Congressional representatives, representatives in the 203-seat PA House, and half of the PA state Senate.”

Planned Parenthood’s political action committee spent almost $80,000 on the 2021 election, according to campaign finance filings.

The abortion advocacy group can be expected to try to elect pro-abortion candidates in 2022.

Planned Parenthood poured out $1.5 million in 2018 to help re-elect pro-abortion Gov. Tom Wolf.

Pro-life state judges can help ensure that Pennsylvania’s laws against abortion remain on the books and could help if pro-life laws are passed in the future.

Wolf, a Democrat, has vetoed a number of pro-life bills passed by the state legislature, which is majority Republican in both houses.

He vetoed a bipartisan bill in 2017 that would have protected babies from dismemberment and late-term abortions.

“SB3 is a vile assault on women’s ability to make their own decisions about their own health care,” Wolf said at the time. “SB3 is an attack on women. It’s an attack on their health, their freedoms, their choice, their liberties.”

The legislation could have saved at least 380 babies a year, according to pro-life advocates.

Wolf doubled down on his pro-abortion record in May 2021 and promised to veto any life-saving bill.

“While members of the Legislature continue to play politics around health choices, I will not let the commonwealth go backwards on reproductive rights or access to health care,” Wolf said, according to the Associated Press. “I will veto any anti-choice legislation that lands on my desk.”

State legislators were debating pro-life bills, including ending abortions that target babies with Down syndrome, and a heartbeat law.

Election night had other pro-life victories

Election Night 2021 delivered another victory for the pro-life cause, but at the federal level in a special Congressional election.

Republican Mike Carey defeated a pro-abortion Emily’s List-backed candidate in a special election in Ohio after the prior congressman left office to take a different job.

The dangerous ideas of Critical Race Theory (CRT) are being forced on students in public schools around the country.

This is wrong and parents have had enough! It's time to join them in saying "STOP!" to this harmful and racist propaganda.

Please SIGN and SHARE this urgent petition which says "No to CRT" in public schools, and "Yes to parents' right" to strongly protest CRT.

But, what is CRT anyway and why is it so dangerous?

Critical Race Theory is a hateful system of indoctrination which teaches that one race is either superior or inferior to another race, and that the United States is inherently racist.

CRT is dangerous and hateful precisely because it teaches children who are not white to despise and envy white children simply because of their skin color. And, as a result, it also teaches white children to despise themselves simply because of the color of their skin.

CRT also erroneously teaches that American society is inherently racist, and that different, detrimental policies (like reparations for slavery and race-based pay scales) should be imposed on the population to redistribute wealth from whites to non-whites.

This type of racist/marxist propaganda should have NO place in public, taxpayer-funded schools!

And, thankfully, American parents of EVERY COLOR are raising their voices and ballots against it!

Indeed, parents understand the destructive ramifications of CRT and, despite outrageous threats from Biden's Justice Department to prosecute them, they have been strongly protesting CRT at school board meetings across the country!

And now, in the first test of its kind, a candidate who was campaigning hard against CRT just won the governorship of Virginia in a huge upset victory.

That's great news, but we now need to contact every state legislature about this crucial educational issue.

And, we need to DEMAND that they BAN Critical Race Theory from every public school in their states - both primary and high schools, and colleges!

Whereas advocates of CRT seem more intent on vengence than on teaching children of every race to respect everybody, regardless of skin color, American parents of every race understand that it is not the color of one's skin that matters, but the content of one's character (to paraphrase Martin Luther King, Jr.).

Please SIGN and SHARE this urgent petition asking all state legislatures to BAN Crititical Race Theory from public schools in their respective states.

Thank you!

“Carey’s support for commonsense pro-life policies like the Hyde Amendment and protecting unborn babies from late abortions resonated with voters,” Carol Tobias of National Right to Life said. “Conversely, [Democrat] Allison Russo’s embrace of abortion without limits and funded by taxpayers proved to be a nonstarter.”

Election night also included a victory in Virginia for Republican Glenn Youngkin who ran on restoring parental rights in education and banning critical race theory.

“This is a moment for Virginians to push back on this left, liberal, progressive agenda,” Youngkin said prior to his Tuesday night victory.
