Republicans have won a majority in the U.S. House with at least 218 seats even with the final count pending in 14 outstanding races. That means pro-life Republicans have wrested control of the Congressional chamber from Nancy Pelosi and pro-abortion Democrats.

“There are still at least a dozen races left to be called, but the election number crunchers have seen enough. The Republican Party will retake the House, fire Nancy Pelosi, and kill the Biden agenda. The GOP win in Arizona’s sixth congressional race killed Democrats’ hopes for keeping the House,” reports Town Hall.

In late-breaking races decided today, Juan Ciscomani (R) defeats Kirsten Engel (D) in #AZ06. And Rep. David Schweikert (R) wins reelection in #AZ01, defeating Jevin Hodge (D).

In Oregon, Republicans flipped a House seat that Democrats had held for many years. The AP reports pro-life Republican Lori Chavez-DeRemer won the competitive race for the open 5th Congressional District and will be the first Latino congresswoman from Oregon. National Right to Life endorsed her.

Other victors Tuesday included pro-life incumbents Reps. David Schweikert, of Arizona, and Michelle Steel and Ken Calvert, of California, all of whom received endorsements from National Right to Life.

Calvert’s seat in the 41st Congressional District was one of the most closely watched races of the midterms, but he defeated his Democrat challenger, Townhall reports.

“This election demonstrated that Riverside County voters are more interested in people serious about solving our challenges, than personal politics,” Calvert said in response to his victory. “It’s clear that this district, like our country, is narrowly divided on a partisan basis. I am proud of my record of delivering results for Riverside County by working in a bipartisan manner throughout my career.”

Two more Republicans also won open, competitive seats: Juan Ciscomani in Arizona and Brandon Williams in New York, according to Politico. Williams is pro-life and received endorsements from National Right to Life and SBA Pro-Life America.

These victories mean Joe Biden and Democrat leaders almost certainly will not be able to pass a radical pro-abortion bill that would force states to legalize the killing of unborn babies in abortions again. A few weeks ago, Biden said the bill would be his top priority for 2023 if Democrats win a few more seats in Congress.

On Monday, however, Biden admitted the bill probably will not pass because it appears Republicans will capture the House.

“I don’t think there’s enough votes,” he said.

The bill, which Biden claims would “codify Roe,” actually would go much further. Nicknamed the Abortion Without Limits Up to Birth Act, it would force states to legalize abortions for basically any reason up to birth and force taxpayers to pay for them. The bill, which Democrats named the Women’s Health Protection Act, also would end parental consent for minors and jeopardize conscience protections for doctors and nurses who refuse to abort unborn babies.

Polls consistently show that Americans support limits on abortion, including parental consent and bans on taxpayer funding for elective abortions.
