About Patient Advocacy
The Texas Right to Life Patient Advocacy Program, operated by our in-house legal department, is designed to help individuals and families facing threats to medical decision making in Texas hospitals.
We work with a network of Pro-Life attorneys and a Pro-Life nurse consultant to advocate for vulnerable patients in hospitals across the state. Our services, fully funded by donations to our Patient Advocacy Fund, are free to every patient we assist.
