Texas Right to Life announced on Monday, August 11, support for Charles Perry’s bid for the Special Election for Senate District 28. The Special Election is slated for September 9 and is necessary after long-serving Senator Robert Duncan vacated the position to become the new Chancellor for the Texas Tech University System.

Perry removed his name from the House District 83 ballot in early August to bid for Senate District 28.

Elizabeth Graham, Director of Texas Right to Life, said Perry was the only strong pro-life candidate on the ballot.

"Charles Perry has a proven Pro-Life track record, and the voters of Senate District 28 should be confident that Charles keeps his campaign promises to protect life," said Elizabeth Graham, Director of Texas Right to Life. "Charles Perry played a key role in 2011 in Texas Right to Life's successful plan to remove millions of taxpayer funds from the abortion industry, and he has supported and co-authored all our bills to protect the unborn, including the landmark House Bill 2 from 2013. Charles advocates for patients and families' rights to be restored in Texas hospitals."

Texas Right to Life has joined with other organizations who have announced support of Perry including the Young Conservatives of Texas, Texans for Lawsuit Reform, Conservative Republicans of Texas and the Texas Home School Coalition.
