Texas Right to Life is extremely pleased with Senator Dan Patrick’s Primary victory today.
Dan will protect and build upon our recent Pro-Life successes, such as the passage of the pre-abortion Sonogram Law, $64.2 million of taxpayer money slashed from the abortion industry, and 13 Planned Parenthood closures.
The abortion and pro-death medical lobbies fought tooth and nail to defeat candidates like Dan this election season, but voters saw through the rhetoric and elected the best person for the job.
Dan has been a staunch defender of Life in Texas for years. He earned a 138 percent Pro-Life voting score for his help in making the 2011 82nd Legislative Session the most successful session to date by sponsoring the landmark Sonogram Law, which has been recognized as the strongest sonogram law in the nation. Dan has always been more than a “yes” vote, taking decisive action to defend Life in the legislature.
Dan earned Texas Right to Life PAC’s endorsement by meeting our stringent requirements on issues such as abortion, euthanasia, defunding the abortion industry, stem cell research, hospital Death Panels, and the rights of patients to direct their own healthcare.
Texas Right to Life looks forward to continuing to fight side by side with Dan in Austin to protect innocent human life from fertilization to natural death.
