Greg Abbott


Biography

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.
