Pro-life groups claimed victory in the 2016 election, saying their army of foot soldiers helped power President-elect Donald Trump into the White House and protect the GOP majority in the Senate.

The Susan B. Anthony List said its efforts to get out the vote in Ohio, North Carolina, Florida and Missouri made the difference for incumbent Republicans running in tight races and helped Mr. Trump capture key battleground states.

“SBA List’s outreach to 1.6 million low propensity pro-life voters and persuadable Democratic and Hispanic voters in these three states sealed victory both for Donald Trump and the pro-life Senate candidates,” SBA List President Marjorie Dannenfelser said. “This is an historic moment for the pro-life movement. There are four critical pro-life goals now within our reach: End painful late-term abortions, codify the Hyde Amendment, defund Planned Parenthood and appoint pro-life Supreme Court Justices.”

The SBA List said that it contacted 1.1 million voters at their homes in Florida, North Carolina, Ohio and Missouri, where the group looked to educate voters on their doorsteps about Hillary Clinton’s record on abortion.
