It was always going to be an uphill climb in Pennsylvania.
Residents of the Keystone State are well aware of the immense challenge of trying to elect a statewide candidate who is not a Democrat, due to the Democratic strongholds of big cities Pittsburgh and Philadelphia.
Radically pro-abortion Democratic U.S. Senate candidate John Fetterman and abortion extremist Democratic Governor candidate Josh Shapiro have now been elected in PA.
Yet, there is a silver lining to the disappointing midterm election news in the Commonwealth.
Despite an overwhelming head wind created by millions of dollars poured into non-stop TV and Internet attack ads against pro-life candidates at the top of the ticket, a pro-life contingent of legislators in the Pennsylvania Senate remains strong. The state Senate will serve as a hedge of protection against anti-life policies put forward by pro-abortion Democrats.
No doubt about it–the political landscape in Pennsylvania will be challenging at the state level, with a divided government heading into 2023.
Because of an expected pro-abortion agenda coming from the new Governor’s Office, pro-life advocates must be more engaged than ever.
