The number of new pro-life Republican women elected to Congress last week more than doubles the total number of pro-life GOP women in the House in 2021.
At a Capitol Hill press conference on Friday, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D‑Calif.) was asked whether she agrees with Republicans who are calling it the year of the Republican women because of the record number of GOP women elected to Congress.
While Pelosi said she’s excited to have more women in the Congress, “that doesn’t mean we have shared views.”
“I’m excited that we have more women in Congress. That doesn’t mean we have shared views, but hopefully, we can find common ground on some issues that related to domestic violence, of course, how the women’s caucus in a bipartisan way came together in the beginning,” she said.
“Issues that relate to teen pregnancy have been a bipartisan focus over time, reducing that, so let’s see. Let’s be optimistic, and let us see, but I congratulate and welcome each and every one of them,” the speaker said.
