Pro-Life Activists Rethink Strategy After Pro-Choice Majority Wins House: 'This Is a Fight We Have to Pick Up'
- On election night as activists watched
the number of pro-lifelawmakers grow in the Senate,
the wind let their sailsas they witnessed the House
flip to a pro-choice majority.
- We can't get aroundthe fact that this is
certainly a loss forthe pro-life movement.
That the House that's been a vanguard
is now gonna be back in the hands
of someone like Nancy Pelosi
who is absolutely an abortion radical.
- [Jennifer] Now instead of working to get
a late term abortion ban
and other legislation through Congress,
pro-life activists likeMallory Quigley are refocusing
on keeping tax dollars
out of the hands of Planned Parenthood.
- This is a fight that we have to take up,
a mantle that we haveto pick up every day.
- [Jennifer] Susan B Anthony Teams
started knocking on doors back in July.
Millions of visits later,
they convinced enoughvoters to make the Senate
- What we wanted was notjust a Republican Senate,
but a pro-life Senate.
The Senate is ground zerofor Supreme Court Justices.
We saw that with the fightto confirm Neil Gorsuch
and of course Brett Kavanaugh.
- [Jennifer] Now if thePresident gets to nominate
a third or even fourth justice,
pro-choice Republicans likeSenators Lisa Murkowski
and Susan Collins can'tblock the confirmation.
And of course, Donald Trumpis still in the White House.
The most pro-lifePresident America has seen.
In his campaign for the Presidency,
he sent this letter to pro-life voters
listing the actions he'd taketo protect life if elected.
And he's keeping his word.
In a matter of days,
the Department Of HealthAnd Human Services
will finalize it's protect life rule.
- That cut off $60 millionfor Planned Parenthood.
Their second largest stream of funding.
If they continue to do abortions,
they won't get Title 10 money.
It's a really encouragingtime to be pro-life.
- Soon Quigley saysteams across the country
will begin knocking on doors once again
to try and turn out thepro-life vote in 2020.
