Thirteen new pro-life women were elected to the U.S. House of Representatives on Tuesday. The House's 11 incumbent pro-life women also won their re-election races.

Seven of the 13 new pro-life representatives won seats previously held by Democrats.

"These gains are a repudiation of abortion extremism and further evidence that life is a winning issue in politics," said Marjorie Dannenfelser, president of the pro-life Susan B. Anthony List, in a statement.

Carol Tobias, president of the National Right to Life Foundation, said it is unlikely the pro-life representatives will be able to advance any legislation restricting abortion.

Eight additional pro-life candidates could still be added to Congress as their races have not yet been called.

🔦 A record number of women are set to serve in the U.S. Congress next year, with at least 129 women joining the House of Representatives and the Senate.
