WASHINGTON – Pro-life Republican Michelle Fischbach Tuesday night defeated pro-abortion Democrat Rep. Collin Peterson in the race for 7th Congressional District. Michelle Fischbach was endorsed by National Right to Life.

“We congratulate Michelle Fischbach for her election to represent the 7th Congressional District in Minnesota,” said Carol Tobias, president of National Right to Life. “National Right to Life reached out to voters in the district to make it clear that their pro-life values would be best represented by Michelle Fischbach and voters responded.”

Michelle Fischbach is a proven and accomplished pro-life leader with a 100% lifetime pro-life voting record in the Minnesota State Senate. During her time in the legislature, she cast 149 out of 149 possible pro-life votes. For more than two decades, she has worked to advance pro-life legislation, authoring or co-sponsoring every major pro-life bill in Minnesota. As president of the Minnesota State Senate, she also took a leadership role in promoting pro-life legislation.

“National Right to Life looks forward to working with Michelle Fischbach in the House of Representatives to advance life-affirming, pro-life policies that protect unborn children and their mothers,” said Tobias. “Michelle Fischbach has been tireless in her commitment to the right to life and in her defense of unborn children and their mothers. She will be a valued ally in the fight for unborn children in the U.S. House of Representatives.”

Founded in 1968, the National Right to Life Committee (NRLC), the federation of 50 state right-to-life affiliates and more than 3,000 local chapters, is the nation’s oldest and largest grassroots pro-life organization. Recognized as the flagship of the pro-life movement, NRLC works through legislation and education to protect innocent human life from abortion, infanticide, assisted suicide and euthanasia.
