Texas Right to Life’s Political Action Committee (PAC) endorses and supports candidates for public office who are committed to protecting the sanctity of innocent human life from fertilization until natural death.  Each endorsee completes an issue questionnaire to assess his or her position and his or her grasp of the myriad Life issues, including but not limited to personhood of human embryos, stem cell research, abortion, defunding the abortion industry, patient rights, denial of medical treatment, and government-sponsored health care rationing.  If a questionnaire is completed satisfactorily and returned, a personal interview is scheduled with each candidate and our PAC board. 
Our PAC does not take lightly our responsibility to the candidates, the voters, and the members of Texas Right to Life.  Thus, our endorsees have undergone a thorough and rigorous vetting process to ensure that they share the mission, goals, and legislative strategy of Texas Right to Life. 
Some candidates were unable to find a time to meet with our PAC Board at one of the seven interview days held across Texas. There may be additional candidates or incumbents who share our Pro-Life convictions but have not undergone our endorsement process, and therefore, they are ineligible to be listed in our voter guide.  Additionally, Pro-Life incumbents and candidates who are running unopposed may not be listed.
