The pro-abortion movement suffered another election loss this week in Arizona when a George Soros-backed Democrat candidate for Maricopa County district attorney lost her race.
The Washington Free Beacon reports Republican candidate Rachel Mitchell beat pro-abortion Democrat Julie Gunnigle by 4 percent in the special election, and Gunnigle conceded Monday.
“Public safety isn’t partisan,” Mitchell said in a victory statement. “All Arizonans demand safe communities in which to live, work and raise their children.”
Her opponent refused to protect children in the womb. During the campaign, Gunnigle said she would not prosecute abortionists who abort unborn babies in violation of the state 15-week abortion ban, which Gov. Doug Ducey signed in March.
The pro-abortion movement supported Gunnigle’s campaign, including Soros, a leftist billionaire who donates millions of dollars to pro-abortion groups and political candidates. Two abortion facilities in the state, Camelback Family Planning and Desert Star Family Planning, also endorsed her.
In September, the Washington Free Beacon exposed connections between the Democrat candidate and unethical and potentially illegal abortion practices in the state.

Camelback Family Planning in Phoenix, which hosted a campaign event with Gunningle in 2020, has been accused of illegal activity. The facility allegedly sold aborted babies’ organs, told a woman how to get a sex-selection abortion and lied to patients.
Several years ago, Camelback was caught harvesting the livers and thymuses from aborted babies and allegedly selling them for $1,200 each to StemExpress between 2010 and 2015, a 2016 U.S. House Energy and Commerce Committee investigation found.
The abortion facility also deceives patients about their unborn baby’s development. In an August interview with the Los Angeles Times, a nurse at Camelback said she tells pregnant mothers that their unborn babies are just “pieces of goo”; the facility aborts unborn babies up to 24 weeks of pregnancy and premature babies have survived as early as 21 weeks.
Desert Star Family Planning in Phoenix, which Gunningle has helped with fundraisers, according to the Beacon, also was caught in an undercover investigation by the Center for Medical Progress that exposed the trafficking of aborted baby body parts.
According to the Beacon, “[Its] founder and president was caught on camera in 2014 discussing fetal organ harvesting and joking that she has to ‘hit the gym’ so her ‘biceps’ could carry out abortions of fetuses older than 20 weeks.”
In 2020, the abortion facility also took $43,117 in COVID-19 relief funds meant for struggling small businesses, according to Secular Pro-Life.
Many pro-abortion candidates lost elections in the midterms despite vastly outspending pro-life candidates. Although some races still have not been called, pro-life Republican lawmakers will re-take the U.S. House from pro-abortion Democrats in 2023.
