CALIFORNIA PROLIFE ANNOUNCEMENT

Final results for the 2014 California General Election will not be fully tallied and confirmed until after November 5th. Yet almost 50 pro-life candidates secured their seats in this election! Please look below for a listing of all the races we won this year. While there were some pro-life losses on election day -- most of them from VERY long-shot races -- there were many MORE victories for pro-life candidates in California competitive races.

California Prolife Council would like to thank you for voting pro-life in yesterday's election. We would not be celebrating this victory without you.

"This election has given us an opportunity to change the pro-abortion stranglehold in Sacramento, and impact the larger debate on defending innocent lives," said Anissa Gallegos, California ProLife spokeswoman. 

As Brian Johnston points out in his upcoming book, Restoring the Right to Life, "Successful pro-lifers understand that the civic process brings many opportunities. They don't make the mistake of thinking,  'It is only THIS candidate, or only THIS measure that can change things'... Working on what you can change, right now, where you are, is how all successful political and social issues move forward." 

And we are clearly moving forward. With just under 50 total pro-life victories, this election cycle was a success and includes the following candidates and ballot measures (percentage of vote won is in parenthesis):
