Support a Culture of Life in Texas, Sign Our Petition

Thirty-six years ago, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled in the case of Roe v. Wade, and since then more than 49 million abortions have been performed in America.

As Governor, I have worked hard to promote a culture of life. I'm proud to have supported and signed a number of key bills that has helped reduce teen abortions in Texas by 26 percent.

Please take a moment to sign this petition supporting a culture of life in Texas, and if you can make it to Austin Saturday January 24th, I hope you will join me and thousands of our fellow Texans at the Texas Rally for Life on the Capitol steps.

God Bless,

Rick Perry
