Pro-lifer: Smoother path for judges, rougher for legislation

I Vote Pro-Life (woman holding sign)Voters had their say on Tuesday but they have made it more difficult to pass pro-life legislation on a national level.

Coming out of the midterms, one positive sign for conservatives is that the Senate will remain in Republican control with a pro-life majority. Mallory Quigley of Susan B. Anthony List says that's important because it is the Senate that confirms President Trump's appointments to the federal bench – including the U.S. Supreme Court.

"We saw pro-life voters deliver margins key to victory in very competitive Senate battlegrounds like Missouri, Indiana, Florida, and North Dakota," she lists. (See SBA List's 2018 Election Report)

But Democrats now have the majority in the House, which Quigley says means a tough go for pro-life legislation.

"We know that the pro-abortion House will now set out to do anything they can to thwart President Trump's pro-life agenda," she laments. "So we'll need to be very active and engaged as a movement to make sure that we are defending against any attacks on the Hyde Amendment, conscience, and the myriad of other pro-life riders that are put in place."

If Congresswoman Nancy Pelosi (D-California) takes over as speaker of the House, she intends to put in place pro-abortion members in committee chairmanships to make sure the lives of preborn children are not protected – because, as she has stated openly, the right to abortion is "sacred" to her.
