In the states, however, the situation is largely the same or has improved. Of the 12 state legislative chambers that changed party control, New Hampshire is the only state where it is no longer realistically viable to enact pro-life legislation. Alternatively, Alaska, Arkansas and Wisconsin have more viability for bills. Other states, such as Georgia, Indiana, Missouri and North Carolina, have pro-life supermajorities in charge.

Despite the gridlock in Washington, the states have had an extremely successful two years. With the current electoral situation across the country, that success will continue for the next two as well.

Dan McConchie is vice president of government affairs for Americans United for Life.
