Pro-Life Perspective on the 2022 Midterm Election

Pro-Life Perspective on the 2022 Midterm Election

Pro-abort pundits are blaming pro-life for defeating a so-called “red wave” — that’s clearly political spin designed to discourage.

A Washington Post/ABC News poll released one day prior to the election reported 64% of Americans reject abortion on demand up to the moment of birth. A CNN exit poll taken on election day showed 75% of voters said inflation was their number one issue.

In 2022, thirty-six states held elections for governors, many of whom championed limits on abortion. In states with abortion restrictions, pro-life gubernatorial candidates who boldly proclaimed the sanctity of life won.

  • Oklahoma enacted a near total ban on abortion and pro-life Gov. Kevin Stitt was reelected.
  • Texas’ Heartbeat law bans abortion after six weeks and, there, pro-life Gov. Gregg Abbott sailed to victory along with many other pro-life candidates.
  • In 2019, Georgia enacted a law banning abortion after six weeks. Gov. Brian Kemp trounced Stacey Abrahams who campaigned on the lie that “there’s no such thing as a heartbeat at six weeks,” while claiming ultrasound is part of some grand conspiracy to control women’s bodies.
  • Florida enacted a fifteen week abortion ban and Gov. Ron DeSantis and Senator Marco Rubio and many other pro-life candidates won re-election easily.

 

California’s own Kevin Kiley and Mike Garcias won their bids for Congress, officially ending pro-aborts’ control of the House. There are now enough pro-life House members to stop any attempt to codify Roe v. Wade.
