Emily’s List, the group that aims to elect women who support abortion rights, has identified 50 congressional and Senate seats nationwide as part of their “On Notice” program to flip seats in the midterm election.

The group has identified seven California Republicans, the largest number of any state. They all occupy seats the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee has also prioritized. They are:

Emily’s List says the roster of priority seats is their biggest ever and that the incumbents who hold them have built “appallingly anti-woman, anti-family records.” A statement announcing the 2018 targets points out their votes to repeal the Affordable Care Act and to allow states to defund Planned Parenthood.

Last year, the only California incumbent the group put “on notice” was Denham. This year, the group has already endorsed challengers in two Republican-held districts: pediatrician Mai Khanh Tran, who is running against Royce, and UC Irvine law professor Katie Porter, who’s up against Walters.

While no women have filed to run in the districts occupied by Denham, Nunes or Issa, Emily’s List spokeswoman Julie McClain Downey says they are still recruiting female candidates for those seats.

    OK, California politicians, here is your chance. Double-down on love of life, of Christ. Go out and hit the hustings with purpose; tell your fellow Californians that you actually stand for something. Also vividly portray the evils of taking a life, a life of the innocent. And for what? So that women can feel fine about having sex without responsibility, without purpose, without morals.

    Standing up for life is also standing up for women. But, of course, few Californians that stand for office will say these things. Better to do anything to be re-elected.

    Delist Emily’s List then delist abortion funding right across America. America stand up for the unborn because after all they are human beings at the moment of conception. Sixty million unborn baby children have been killed by abortion since Roe versus Wade made this senseless slaughter of the unborn legal. Californians and all Americans only vote for pro-life politicians or face the divine retribution of Almighty God. End abortion now! Adoption is the loving option. Our Lady of Good Success pray for an end to this diabolical killing of unborn baby children.
