Pro-life majorities continue in NC General Assembly, but without a super majority. The US Senate is still in Republican control, but the US House is now in the control of Democrats who support abortion on demand.

After the General Election on November 6, 2018, the NC General Assembly remains in the control of pro-life majorities, but those majorities are not a super majority needed to overcome Governor Cooper’s expected veto of pro-life legislation.  In the US Congress, the Democrats have retaken the House, but the Senate still remains in the hands of the Republicans.  Several senate race in other states are still being determined so whether the Republicans will have a 51 or 53 majority is unknown at this time.

In NC, all 10 pro-life congressional candidates won their races.  9 incumbents were reelected with newly elected Mark Harris (R-9) [who defeated pro-life Robert Pittenger in the primary] besting Dan McCready (D).

The reelected pro-life incumbents are: George Holding (R-2),  Walter Jones (R-3), Virginia Foxx (R-5), Mark Walker (R-6), David Rouzer (R-7), Richard Hudson (R-8), Patrick McHenry (R-10), Mark Meadows (R-11), and Ted Budd (R-13).
