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 (FL), Yvette Herrell (NM), Michelle Fischbach (MN), Nancy Mace (SC), Stephanie Brice (OK), Ashley Hinson (IA), and Nicole Malliotakis (NY) flipped Democrat-held seats. Six other pro-life women will replace pro-life men in the House: Lauren Boebert (CO), Lisa McClain (MI), Kat Cammack (FL), Diana Harshbarger (TN), Mary Miller (IL), 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 (IA), Cindy Hyde-Smith (MS), Shelley Moore Capito (WV), Cynthia Lummis (WY), Marsha Blackburn (TN) and Deb Fischer (NE).

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.”
