Benjamin Clapper, Executive Director of Louisiana Right to Life, issued the following comments after election results were finalized Saturday evening:
"Louisiana Right to Life congratulates John Kennedy on his election this evening to the U.S. Senate. John has been clear about his pro-life position from day one of this election. He made strong commitments through his questionnaire responses, both to Louisiana and National Right to Life. We look forward to his pro-life votes in the U.S. Senate to confirm Supreme Court Justices, defund Planned Parenthood, protect unborn children, and more. We are thrilled that Louisiana will continue to have two pro-life U.S. Senators in Washington D.C.
"We applaud Representative-elect Mike Johnson for his election in the 4th Congressional District. Mike is a proven pro-life leader that has a bright future in Congress. We are looking forward to working with him to advance a pro-life agenda in Congress.
"We also commend
Clay Higgins on his election in the 3rd Congressional District. We are optimistic that Clay will serve as a solid pro-life vote in Congress.
"This evening's election results, together with the November outcomes, shows again that the pro-life issue is important to Louisiana voters. We thank these voters for remaining committed to electing candidates for office that are proudly pro-life."
