Pro-life Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) has been overwhelmingly reelected as Speaker of the House. Pro-life Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) was unanimously reelected Senate Majority Leader on November 16.

Today’s vote count for the Speaker position was 239 votes for Ryan and 189 votes for pro-abortion Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.).

Pelosi, who supports abortion on demand, will continue to serve as the minority leader – a clear indication that the Democrats still don’t understand what happened two months ago.
