The abortion issue is not a partisan issue. No matter what one’s political stripe, the destruction of the lives of unborn children in abortions is wrong. And while most Republicans are pro-life, polls consistently show one-third of Democrats oppose abortion as well.
But their representatives in Congress don’t vote that why.
The national pro-life group Susan B. Anthony List (SBA List) today revealed the latest Susan B. Anthony List National Pro-life Scorecard, a tool for holding members of Congress accountable for their legislative records on abortion and highlighting leadership in the fight to protect unborn children and their mothers.
Notably, 249 members of Congress received an A+ grade: 201 representatives and 48 senators. 269 members received an F grade: 220 representatives and 49 senators.

Republicans almost unanimously received an A+ grade except for abortion advocates like Lisa Murkowski and Susan Collins.
But every single Democrat in the the House and Senate received an F grade except one, Joe Manchin. Not one single Democrat other than the West Virginia senator could vote for reasonable pro-life measure or vote against forcing Americans to fund abortions. And one of the Democrat members of the House could bring themselves to sign a discharge petition to request a vote on a bill to stop infanticide. That’s how radical the Democrat Party has become.
“With the Supreme Court poised to decide the Dobbs late abortion case, potentially returning abortion policy to the people and their elected representatives, the life issue will be front and center in this year’s midterm elections,” said Hon. Marilyn Musgrave, SBA List’s vice president of government affairs.
“In contrast to Republicans who are more united than ever in support of life, nearly all congressional Democrats support the radical Biden agenda of abortion on demand up to birth, well past the point when unborn children can feel pain, and even infanticide. Our National Pro-life Scorecard reflects that record. The overwhelming majority of Americans reject pro-abortion extremism. They deserve to know where their elected officials stand so they can hold them accountable and elect a pro-life majority to Congress this November.”
Their radical pro-abortion agenda is turning off Americans. Polls already show Americans want Republicans to run the House and Senate and with Joe Biden and Democrats looking so bad int he pro-life, a new pro-life Congress may be forthcoming.
