The pro-life cause will be stronger this session in the U.S. House, where numerous pro-life voices are beginning their work as congressional lawmakers.
Carol Tobias, who leads National Right to Life Committee, says there is excitement because rookie lawmakers who are proudly pro-life number at least 45 in the House.
“The unborn babies are going to have even more voices speaking up for them in the House of Representatives this year,” she tells One News Now.
Lost among President Donald Trump’s loss was huge gains Republican candidates made on Election Day in the Democrat-led House.
“A record number of Republican women will serve in the House after the GOP ate into Democratic majority,” reads a post-election USA Today headline. The story goes on to report:
The incoming class includes Lauren Boebert, a Colorado gun-rights activist who knocked off five-term incumbent Scott Tipton in a GOP primary; Michelle Fischbach, a former Minnesota lieutenant governor who unseated 15-term Democrat Collin Peterson; and Native American businesswoman Yvette Herrell, who defeated Xochitl Torres Small, part of the Democrats' historic wave in 2018.
The 117th Congress began this week with 27 pro-life male freshmen and 18 pro-life female freshmen, all of them Republicans, Lifenews.com reported.
According to Tobias, the pro-life Republicans will have work to do thanks to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi. The liberal lawmaker is an outspoken pro-abortion Democrat who wants to repeal the Hyde Amendment, which would allow tax dollars to pay for abortion, among other pro-abortion plans.
“It's going to be a tough time in the House of Representatives,” Tobias predicts.
