Students for Life of America Celebrates Pro-Life Win in Illinois Race
“Opposing abortion is the human rights issue of our day, no matter a person’s political affiliation. Life should be a bipartisan choice, and Illinois voters understood that,” said SFLA’s Kristan Hawkins
NEW YORK CITY (03-21-18) – Students for Life of America President Kristan Hawkins commended the voters of Illinois for choosing Rep. Dan Lipinski in a hotly contested primary race.
Hawkins made the following statement: “Opposing abortion is the human rights issue of our day, no matter a person’s political affiliation. Life should be a bipartisan choice, and Illinois voters understood that. Representative Lipinski’s victory shows that the moneyed interest and the abortion establishment can’t stop a well-liked, pro-life Democrat who stuck to his beliefs. His victory should send a message to other pro-life Democrats that you do not have to give in to the current Democratic Party line on abortion in order to get elected. And Representative Lipinski’s Democratic colleagues should take it to heart that Millennials, now the largest voting bloc, are more pro-life than even their parents. Life is a winning issue.”
