Pro-Life Champions Dominate Texas GOP Primary Election

Pro-Life leaders gained incredible ground in Tuesday’s Republican Primary Election in Texas. The night’s biggest wins came at the hands of candidates with deep personal ties to Pro-Life issues. 

Supreme Court Justice John Devine faced an aggressive challenger. This race had high stakes as powerful forces continuously attempt to legalize abortion again through state lawsuits. Devine has proven his Pro-Life stance time and again on the Supreme Court of Texas. Justice Devine said this issue motivated him to seek public office in the first place. His daughter Elizabeth was diagnosed with a life-limiting illness in utero and passed away shortly after birth. John Devine recognizes that a diagnosis does not take away a person’s God-given Right to Life. Devine won the primary election and will face a Democratic challenger in November.

Brent Money in northeast Texas won a high-profile rematch against Jill Dutton for state representative in House District 2. As a former foster father who has also adopted, Brent Money has a special appreciation for the gift of Life and what it means to fight for each and every child. Texas Right to Life is excited to see Money in the Texas House next year after he wins this deep-red district in November.

Caroline Fairly is a strong conservative leader with unique experience that will make her a Pro-Life asset in the Texas House if elected as state representative for the Texas Panhandle in November. Her service in healthcare has given her a heart for vulnerable patients whose lives are threatened by euthanasia. She has also volunteered with Hope Choice Pregnancy Center and ministered to pregnant women considering abortion. This background has given her firsthand insight into the importance of Pro-Life laws, and she has witnessed God’s love for those affected by abortion.

Marc LaHood is 100% Pro-Life, and this issue is personal to him since he adopted his eldest daughter. LaHood defeated incumbent Steve Allison for state representative in House District 121 (San Antonio). Allison publicly declared he would vote to expand abortion in Texas by adding dangerous loopholes to state laws. Voters preferred Marc LaHood’s Pro-Life stance that aligns with the community’s principles.

Voters in Parker, Palo Pinto, and Stephens counties ousted incumbent Glenn Rogers and voted for conservative Mike Olcott to represent House District 60. Olcott is fully dedicated to protecting babies from abortion and patients from euthanasia. He is a bold and principled local leader who has spent most of his life promoting conservative and Pro-Life values. Additionally, Olcott can go toe-to-toe with pro-abortion Democrats because of his background in biology. He spent his career serving people through life-saving medical research and holds a Ph.D. in biochemistry.

Representative Jeff Leach won in House District 67 (Plano), demonstrating his constituents’ continued trust in his Pro-Life record. While serving in Austin, Leach has been an outspoken voice for preborn babies, pregnant women, and vulnerable patients. Adoption agencies, pregnancy centers, and maternity homes received increased funding last year thanks to Jeff Leach! He passed a Pro-Life amendment to the state budget to help pregnant women and new families while pro-abortion Democrats tried to cut funding for alternatives to abortion.

Other Texas Right to Life PAC endorsed candidates will advance to the May Runoff Election: 

  • Pro-Life Champion Representative Stephanie Klick for House District 91;
  • A.J. Louderback for House District 30;
  • Andy Hopper for House District 64; and
  • Cheryl Bean for House District 97.

Texas Right to Life PAC celebrates these victories and looks forward to continuing to promote strong Pro-Life candidates in May and November.
