As a lifelong Texan, a proud conservative, and man of deep faith, Lt. Governor Dewhurst shares the average Texan’s passion for the sanctity of life, the strength of family, and the importance of liberty. Thanks to his efforts, the Texas Senate passed more pro-life legislation than ever before, strengthened traditional marriage, expanded adoption access, and promoted the expansion of adult stem cell research (as opposed to life-ending embryonic stem cell efforts).
With his heartfelt conviction that the family is the foundation for a functioning society, Dewhurst worked long hours and braved the slings and arrows of critics to strengthen that essential social unit.
Capping a furious battle that attracted worldwide attention, Lt. Governor Dewhurst led the Texas Senate to the passage of HB2, a bill that significantly improved protections for the health of women who chose to terminate a pregnancy while also outlawing abortions performed beyond the 20th week of pregnancy.
Affirming the value of life at every state of development, Dewhurst championed legislation that recognized an unborn child as a person in the event of assault or harm caused by an offender.
As an affirmation of his belief in the family as the core unit of society and an endorsement of a parent’s responsibility in raising their children, Dewhurst secured passage of a bill that required parental consent for abortions by their minor children.
Concerned by the abortion industry's misleading embrace of terminology that deemphasized the humanity of an unborn child, Dewhurst pressed for legislation that would simply require the full disclosure of medical information and alternatives for women considering an abortion.
With the life-respecting fetal stem cell research limitations instituted by President George W. Bush under threat from the White House, Lt. Governor Dewhurst worked diligently to protect unborn Texans by providing state funding for equally effective adult stem cell research while restricting state dollars from funding embryonic stem cell experimentation.
Defended the God-ordained definition of marriage as one man and one woman as a champion of the Defense of Marriage Act in 2003 and the passage of an accompanying Constitutional Amendment in 2005.
