Abbott was first elected governor in 2014. Previously he served on the state Supreme Court and as Texas’ attorney general. He and his wife Cecilia are native Texans and have a daughter. As governor he has consistently advocated and signed pro-life legislation. In 2021 alone he signed 12 new pro-life laws, including the Heartbeat Act – which has saved the lives of countless unborn children and protects mothers while litigation continues in the lower courts – and safeguards against mail-order abortion drugs. He was one of 12 pro-life governors to file a brief in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, in which the U.S. Supreme Court will address the constitutionality of pre-viability limits on abortion. Under his leadership, the Texas Legislature also increased funding for the state’s Alternatives to Abortion program by $100 million. The program provides counseling, material assistance, care coordination and housing support.
He is a Texas native and he and his wife Cecilia have a daughter, Audrey.
