I am a fully committed to Pro-Life principles and priorities. If elected, I look forward to carrying this banner to the Texas House of Representatives.
While the out-right legality of abortion must first be decided by the US Supreme Court before individual states can pass measures banning the practice, there are still steps to be taken to reduce its frequency. Texas has great informed consent laws in place that require women seeking abortions to have full information before them about the decision they are about to make, including the associated health risks, available alternatives, that a sonogram must first be performed and that a minor seeking an abortion must first gain their parents’ consent. I support all Texans having full information on this matter so that they can understand the gravity of the decision they are about to make.
As your State Representative, I will adamantly oppose any attempts to weaken or out-right strike down Texas’ informed consent laws. Further, I will work to continue the recent direction of our legislature to de-fund organizations and clinics that perform abortions.
Texas must also continue to seek out alternatives to abortion to provide to its citizens, such as our Baby Moses Project. Created in 1999, this first in the nation program has helped almost 100 mothers of an unwanted pregnancy in Texas find a positive resolution for both them and their child. It has since been modeled after by all states and, if elected, I look forward to helping to enact the next innovative alternatives that will save the lives of innocent children in Texas.
