Congressman Williams’ statement on passage of Texas House Bill 2

Today, U.S. Congressman Roger Williams (TX-25) released the following statement after Gov. Rick Perry signed into law House Bill 2, which protects unborn babies beyond the 20-week mark in pregnancy.

“Today marks a huge victory in Texas by standing up for the sanctity of life.  I commend the hard work of the state legislators who put an end to the barbaric, unconscionable practice of aborting babies who are 20-plus weeks old.  Every life is precious, and we have an obligation to protect it at every stage.  ‘Before I formed you in the womb I knew you.’  Jeremiah 1:5”
