The margin of pro-life U.S. senators must be increased in the upcoming midterm elections this November or else pro-life legislation will continue to be defeated on Capitol Hill. This was seen last month when the 20-week ban on abortion failed in the senate owing to turncoat Republicans.

Michael Voris, who's been reporting on such elections for 25 years, said, "Faithful Catholics must be very attentive to and participate in this year's midterm elections. It wasn't enough to stop the agenda of the Left in just one branch of government. It must be stopped in both houses of Congress as well."

The obstructionist Democrats and liberal media have been colluding to discredit the election process since President Donald Trump was elected last November. Concerning the collusion of the Left, Voris explained, "Having recovered from the shocking mauling they were handed when Trump won, they have regrouped and with the assistance of their media wing, they are looking to stall whatever momentum was gained in 2016 by the Right."

The defeat of the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act last month revealed that Republicans in the Senate were not trustworthy when it comes to pro-life issues. Republican Sen. John McCain of Arizona didn't vote, and two Republican women, Senators Susan Collins and Lisa Murkowski, both voted to continue abortions past the 20-week period.

Ten Democrats, however, are up for reelection in states that voted for Trump in the 2016 election. Sizing up this opportunity to increase true pro-life congressmen in the Senate, Voris commented, "There is a unique dynamic at play in these midterms with the Democrats having to defend so many Senate seats in states that President Trump won."

Considering also that Trump will need Senate approval for presumably one or more of his Supreme Court nominations, Voris stated, "Far from a victory for the Left, there is the potential for them to be further stunned and conservatives gain an enormous grasp on power, for the first time in a long time — but only if solid Catholics seize the moment."
