U.S. Election Results Hailed by Pro-life Group

WASHINGTON, D.C., NOV. 6, 2002 (Zenit.org).- A pro-life women’s political group hailed the results of Tuesday’s elections in the United States as a hopeful sign for the rights of the unborn.

The Susan B. Anthony List Candidate Fund said 22 of the 30 pro-life candidates it endorsed had won. One remained in a run-off. The wins increase the number of pro-life women in Congress to 12 from seven, the group said.

“This is a tremendous gain for the movement, and really demonstrates the strength of the pro-life message in these tight political races,” said Jane Abraham, the group’s president.

“We are very much looking forward to this new leadership in Congress, especially on important pro-life legislation like a ban on partial-birth abortion,” said Abraham.

Republicans will take control of the U.S. Senate with at least 51 seats, and strengthen their majority in the House of Representatives, the Associated Press reported.
