Texas Right to Life has criticized Raney’s vote against a failed amendment to SB 8 that would have that would have eliminated a woman’s right to have an abortion after 20 weeks of pregnancy if it was determined that the fetus had severe abnormalities. Raney said the “very dangerous amendment” was unconstitutional and could have put the entire bill at jeopardy. Texas Alliance for Life, another anti-abortion group backing Raney, also defended the vote in an email sent via Raney’s campaign, saying the measure had “no chances of surviving a federal court challenge” and would have “saved no lives from abortion.”
