Press Release

WASHINGTON, D.C. Congressman Roger Williams (R-TX-25) received an “A” rating from the Susan B. Anthony List’s first-ever national scorecard, which reflects pro-life votes and actions taken in the 116th Congress.

“I am unapologetically pro-life and I believe that every child is a precious gift from God. During my time in Congress, I've worked to protect the most vulnerable among us, voting at every opportunity to defund Planned Parenthood and prevent federal funds from being used in the barbaric act of abortion,” said Rep. Williams. “It’s an honor to receive an “A” rating from SBA List’s first-ever pro-life scorecard, and I’m proud to stand strong alongside many other pro-life champions as we continue the uphill battle for life under the abortion-obsessed Democrat House majority.”

“When it comes to standing up for the unborn and their mothers, we can always rely on Congressman Williams’ vote. We are proud to award him with an “A” on our National Pro-Life Scorecard,” said Jamie Dangers, Legislative Director of the Susan B. Anthony List.
