Both Defeat Pro-Abortion Radicals

Call it “the Pennsylvania Miracle.” In a stunning victory which has rocked the birthplace of American democracy , after 28 years of pro-abortion Democratic Presidential candidates carrying the Keystone State, the Commonwealth delivered its 20 electoral votes to the pro-life Republican standard-bearer, Donald Trump.
Yes, the margin of victory was as thin as a thread—one percentage point—but it was enough to change the course of history. The victory helped to propel a man to the White House who has pledged to appoint U.S. Supreme Court Justices who will strictly interpret the Constitution as the Founding Fathers wrote it, rather than re-write it, according to their own political preferences.
And the shock and awe of Election 2016 for the people of Pennsylvania did not end with the Presidential race. Republican U.S. Senator Pat Toomey, who has a 100 percent pro-life voting record, proved the pollsters wrong with his slim but momentous victory over the abortion industry-backed Katie McGinty.
McGinty was so radical on abortion that she even wrote an op-ed piece opposing a ban on the brutal practice of dismemberment abortion, in which an unborn baby is torn limb by limb from a mother’s womb.
Toomey’s triumph was instrumental in helping to retain Republican control of the U.S. Senate—a key to confirming stellar Supreme Court nominees and advancing pro-life legislation in the years ahead.
