This Catholic News Agency story reports on pro-life setbacks in the Nov. 6 election.

Kristan Hawkins, president of Students for Life of America, explained that the election "confirmed for every pro-lifer that we cannot rely on politicians to abolish abortion," since President Barack Obama was elected after committing himself to furthering taxpayer-funded abortion without restrictions.

Charmaine Yoest, president and CEO of Americans United for Life, said the election was definitely a loss for the pro-life movement, but "dramatic success" had been achieved in the past decade, and groups like Americans United for Life have a "clear, direct, and strategic plan" for moving ahead.
