Lupe Valdez on Abortion
Endorsed by Planned Parenthood
Valdez earned endorsements from the Victory Fund--a PAC devoted to electing pro-choice LGBTQ candidates--and Planned Parenthood Texas. [Opponent Andrew] White's position on women's health care in a state famous for its escalating attacks on
abortion rights may have pushed voters and more progressive organizations Valdez's way. He identifies as "pro-life," but said he would veto any anti-choice bills, calling abortion "a choice that my wife and I wouldn't take away from somebody else."
In a debate this month, Valdez strove to draw a distinction between her position on abortion rights and his. By saying that he and his wife "respect life,"
White suggests that he believes women who seek abortion care do not, Valdez said. "You owe an apology to these women," she continued.
