One year ago today, I had the immense privilege of watching Governor Rick Perry sign House Bill 2 (HB2), one of the most significant pieces of pro-life legislation in Texas history. In addition to saving lives and protecting women’s health, its passage emphatically serves as a symbol of the rule of law, the will of a majority of Texans, and the capstone to more than a decade of passing pro-life legislation.
Ten years ago this week, the Texas Legislature took decisive action to improve access to healthcare and reduce frivolous medical liability lawsuits filed by personal injury trial lawyers. In passing medical liability reform, Texas strengthened the underpinnings of our economy, caught the attention of quality doctors from across the country and set a standard that our nation would be wise to emulate.
