About Our Speaker
The Honorable David Dewhurst, Lieutenant Governor of Texas
A native Texan, proud military veteran, successful businessman and rancher, Dewhurst has served as Lieutenant Governor and President of the Texas Senate since 2003. Through four regular sessions and seven special sessions of the Texas legislature, Dewhurst has consistently championed pro-life legislation.
He has overseen the passage in the Senate a number of landmark bills that eventually became law. Those include most recently the sonogram law, the bill to create the Choose Life license plate, and Senate Bill 7 which is the basis for defunding Planned Parenthood of as much as $29 million per year.
Other measures include the Parental Consent law and the prohibition on third-trimester abortions, both in 2005, and the Prenatal Protection (personhood) Act and the Women's Right to Know Act in 2003.
Gov. Dewhurst has also supported compassionate alternatives to abortion and has supported life-saving adult stem cell research and treatments.
He has spoken several times at the Texas Rally for Life and Texas Alliance for Life's Annual Benefit Dinner, where in 2011 he received Texas Alliance for Life's Courageous Defense of Life award.
