What are your views on the topic of abortion?

I am strongly pro-life, and have been my entire life. I grew up in Catholic schools and have understood that life begins at conception for as long as I can remember. Seeing the sonogram of my first daughter was one of the most powerful events in my life and convinced me even more that it is every person's duty to protect the unborn.

My opponent has voted for the Mexico City plan and Obamacare, both of which use tax dollars to fund abortions and are inconsistent with his claim of being pro-life. I will never vote to spend tax dollars on Abortions.

The Texas Alliance for Life, one of the state's largest pro life groups, has endorsed me.
