Governor Greg Abbott Pledges to Keep Texas Pro-Life

Texas has been and will continue to be a leading defender of unborn babies in America, Gov. Greg Abbott told a large crowd Saturday in Austin.

Abbott spoke to the Texas Rally for Life, which drew thousands of people to the state capitol to mark the anniversary of the infamous U.S. Supreme Court case Roe v. Wade, the Houston Chronicle reports.

“It’s been 45 years since Roe v. Wade, and since then, Texas has become the national leader in defending life,” Abbott said. “As governor, I will fight for every child to have a chance at life.”

The pro-life governor shared a personal story about choosing life for his daughter, Audrey, 21 years ago. Abbott said his daughter recently made the dean’s list at her college, according to the report.

Abbott and his administration have been dedicated to defending unborn babies. They currently are fighting a series of legal challenges by the abortion industry.

In 2017, the state legislature passed a ban on brutal dismemberment abortions that tear unborn babies limb from limb while their hearts are beating. While abortion activists are challenging the protective law, Abbott’s administration is expected to defend it all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court, if necessary.

This year, Texas lawmakers also strengthened a ban on the sale of aborted babies’ body parts by requiring that abortion facilities bury or cremate the babies’ remains. They cut off additional funding streams to the abortion giant Planned Parenthood as well. . . . Read More
