Mariannette Miller-Meeks Victory in Iowa Adds to Record Surge of Pro-Life Women Elected to Congress

Washington, D.C. – Today the national pro-life group Susan B. Anthony List (SBA List) celebrated the victory of Mariannette Miller-Meeks as her race was certified in Iowa’s 2nd congressional districtMiller-Meeks is the 18th new pro-life woman elected to the U.S. House of Representatives this year, joining 11 returning incumbents.

Of the 18 newly-elected women, ten have flipped seats formerly held by pro-abortion Democrats.

“A record 29 pro-life women will serve in the House of Representatives in the next Congress: continued proof that life is winning in America,” said SBA List President Marjorie Dannenfelser. “These pro-life champions will serve as a brick wall against the radical pro-abortion agenda of Speaker Pelosi and pro-abortion Democrats dead set on taking out even modest protections for pro-life Americans such as the Hyde Amendment and similar legacy riders.

“The exponential growth of pro-life women in the House is reflective of the fact that life has gone from being viewed as a political problem to a winning issue. These women have already done important work to expose the extremism of their radical pro-abortion opponents and we look forward to working alongside them to depend lifesaving law and policy in Congress.”
