While pro-life President Donald Trump's chances of staying in office for another term are questionable at the very least, pro-life advocates can at least celebrate the fact that 45 new pro-life congress members were sworn into the House of Representatives on Monday.

Of the new pro-life congress members sworn in on Jan. 4, 18 are women, 27 are men, and a total of 13 seats were flipped from pro-abortion politicians to pro-life ones. If challenger Claudia Tenney defeats pro-abortion Rep. Anthony Brindisi in New York’s 22nd Congressional District, that number will increase to 14.

“I’m very excited about the new GOP members in the 117th Congress!,” said Karen Cross, National Right to Life Political Director. “Every one of them is pro-life and will work with us to protect unborn children!”

While the new pro-life representatives are certainly good for the pro-life movement, they don't flip the House in favor of pro-lifers. All eyes are on Georgia's Senate run-off elections as they will determine which party (and likely which side of life issues) controls the senate during the upcoming administration.
