Pro-Choice Voter Guide: Texas Senate
Ted Cruz (R) is anti-choice.
In response to the question "are you pro-life?," Cruz replied: "Absolutely and I have a proven record of fighting for Life. As the Solicitor General of Texas I led a coalition of states before the US Supreme Court defending the federal partial birth abortion ban act and we won 5-4. I led another coalition of States before the Supreme Court defending the state of New Hampshire's parental notification act and we won unanimously and in Texas the state legislature passed a bill called the Rider 8 which prohibited tax payer funds from going to organizations that provide abortions. A federal district court struck that down, we appealed it to the US Court of Appeals. I personally argued the case before the US Court of Appeals and we won unanimously reinstating that law."
