Press Release

Rep. Pete Olson (TX-22) today issued the following statement in support of today's annual March for Life in Washington, DC:

"Today, on the 43rd anniversary of Roe vs Wade, I have hope when I see so many Americans of all ages brave the cold and march in defense of life and respect for the unborn. This date represents a sad moment in American history, but I remain steadfast in my hope that we can change hearts and minds and restore the sanctity of life in our society.

“I will continue my efforts to defund Planned Parenthood and hope the Supreme Court will uphold Texas law that protects the health and well-being of women in need of care. We will continue to pray for the protection of all innocent life, and I applaud the courageous advocates who are standing up for life today and every day."
