Note: For the purposes of these lists, "Pro-life" does not necessarily mean 100% pro-life in accordance with natural law and Catholic teaching. Many of the newly elected candidates listed above are 100% pro-life, but some are not. Check individual governors, senators and representatives-elect to be sure.
