Governor Perry's Remarks at Texas Right to Life Celebration

Thank you, Elizabeth, and thank you for all you've done on behalf of the unborn in the State of Texas.

There's no more noble cause than protecting those who can't protect themselves, and through your efforts, and the efforts of so many in this room tonight, we've made great progress toward our worthy goal.

40 years is a milestone by any measure, although it's bittersweet that the Texas Right to Life has been necessary that long.

Gov. Perry: Texas Will Continue to Build on Our Legacy of Life

June 27, 2013

With us today are several of our Texas heroes in this fight, Elizabeth Graham, Kyleen Wright, and Carol Everett.

I'm particularly glad to have you all here this week, of all weeks, as we witnessed the extremes the pro-abortion forces will resort to in order to further their cause. They demonstrated that, even if they lose at the ballot box, even if they come up short in attempts to stall on the Senate floor, they will resort to mob tactics to force their minority agenda on the people of Texas.

I'm all about honest, open debate, and parliamentary tactics are certainly nothing new, but what we witnessed Tuesday was nothing more than the hijacking of the democratic process.

This is simply too important a cause to allow the unruly actions of a few to stand in its way.

I have announced that I am bringing lawmakers back to Austin to finish the work and the will of the people of the state of Texas, and I've put pro-life measures at the top of the call list.

Former President George H.W. Bush and Former First Lady Barbara Bush Endorse Gov. Perry for Re-election

October 25, 2010

Join over 100 groups in supporting Gov. Perry for re-election

HOUSTON – Today Gov. Rick Perry received the endorsement of former President George H.W. Bush and former First Lady Barbara Bush for the general election. They were joined by representatives from more than 100 organizations and hundreds of leaders who have endorsed Gov. Perry’s re-election, highlighting his diverse, statewide support, which represents millions of Texans.

“Gov. Perry’s leadership and proven track record is an essential component in keeping Texas a national leader in job creation,” said former President George H.W. Bush. “Texas has become a prime example of what happens when you mix fiscal responsibility, strong leadership and a vision of moving a state forward. It is an honor to endorse Gov. Rick Perry for the general election.”

George H.W. Bush was sworn in as president of the United States in January 1989 and served until January 1993. During his term in office, the Cold War ended; the threat of nuclear war was drastically reduced; the Soviet Union ceased to exist, replaced by a democratic Russia with the Baltic States becoming free; the Berlin Wall fell and Germany was reunified with Eastern Europe; and he put together an unprecedented international coalition to liberate Kuwait.

Former First Lady Barbara Bush is a tireless advocate of volunteerism, helping countless charities and humanitarian causes. Today she and President Bush serve as Co-Chairs of C-Change, an organization that represents more than 150 individuals and groups that fight cancer. She also enjoys reading to children at schools and hospitals across the nation.
“I am deeply honored to receive the endorsement of former President George H. W. Bush and former First Lady Barbara Bush,” said Gov. Perry. “His devotion and leadership, to our country, has brought forth inspiration to us all.”

Gov. Perry’s endorsements highlight the broad-based support he has from diverse groups and industries, ranging from agriculture, health care and retail sales, to construction, law enforcement and education.

In his remarks, Gov. Perry emphasized the creation of 850,000 Texas jobs in the last ten years and the recent drop in the unemployment rate in Texas; leaving the national rate nearly two points above ours. He also touted our state’s low taxes, predictable regulatory climate, fair legal system and education efforts as crucial elements that have helped make it a national leader in exports and Fortune 1000 companies.
