By: Governor Greg Abbott

AUSTIN – Governor Greg Abbott today announced that his call for pro-life insurance reform is generating growing support across Texas. Pro-life insurance reform is part of the Governor’s 20-item agenda for the ongoing special legislative session.
“We applaud Governor Abbott for taking a strong pro-life stance by adding pro-life insurance reform to the special session call. Insurance providers in Texas, specifically those affiliated with local and statewide governments, should not cover abortion procedures unless it is to save the life of the mother.” – Joe Pojman, Ph.D., Executive Director, Texas Alliance for Life

“For several years, the eyes of the nation have been on Texas, and not by accident,” said Joe Pojman, executive director of the Texas Alliance for Life, at the dinner. “Gov. Abbott’s leadership on the pro-life issue has been invaluable. As we get ready for the next legislative session in January, Gov. Abbott is already contacting his staff in the middle of the night with ideas. I know this because they contact me to get our help.”

“There is a lot that we need to do next session,” Gov. Greg Abbott told the Texas Alliance for Life.

He says he will introduce a ‘life initiative’ in the 2017 session, which will focus on restricting the sale of fetal body parts, which was the subject of a series of controversial undercover videos of Planned Parenthood in Texas and elsewhere last year.
