SFLAction Congratulates Mike Reichenbach on His Victory in Republican Primary Special Election for SC Senate District 31

“Mike’s victory is a victory for the pro-life movement.” said SFLAction Grassroots Political Coordinator Titus Folks. “As we anticipate a Post-Roe America, pro-lifers can’t afford to have politicians who are wishy-washy on the most important human rights injustice of our lifetime.”

FLORENCE, SC. (1-25-2022) –Media reports indicate that pro-life Mike Reichenbach has won the Republican Primary for the Special Election in South Carolina’s State Senate District 31 with all precincts reporting. Reichenbach responded to Students for Life Action’s Pro-Life Accountability Program pledging to vote 100% pro-life, while his opponent, State Representative Jay Jordan, failed to address his mixed record on abortion by refusing to return SFLAction’s survey.

Through voter engagement including personally texting and calling thousands of pro-life voters in the 31stdistrict, Students for Life Action exposed Rep. Jay Jordan’s record of voting repeatedly for taxpayer fundingfor abortion, his refusal to return SFLAction’s survey, and highlighted Reichenbach’s pledge to vote 100% pro-life if elected.

“The Post-Roe Generation refuses to settle for candidates and politicians dodging the life issue. If you won’t pledge in writing to defend life during campaign season, then why should pro-lifers trust you to vote pro-life once you’re elected?” Titus Folks concluded.

Students for Life of America recently released a poll of Millennials and Gen Z who now make up one-third of the electorate, and who want a voice and a vote on abortion. An astonishing 8 in 10 want to vote on abortion policy in their states – UP from 66% last year. On taxpayer funding, 54 % of Millennials and Gen Z support Hyde Amendment protections that limit abortion funding to rape, incest, and when the mother’s life is in danger, and 55% oppose funding abortion worldwide.
