AUSTIN – Last week State Representative Phil King (R-Weatherford) was listed among the top ten rated pro-life legislators in the Texas House of Representative by Texas Right to Life. King was ranked the sixth highest pro-life legislator out of 150 in the Texas House, receiving a score of 140%.

“This past legislative session was the most pro-life session in Texas’ history, and Texas Right to Life is pleased that Representative King stood with us at each chance to protect life,” stated Director of Texas Right to Life Elizabeth Graham, “He did more than press the green button on the floor, and his willingness to go the extra mile helped pass the strongest protections for the most innocent among us.”

The top 11 pro-life House members earned scores greater than 100% based on their willingness to do more than just cast a pro-life vote. According to the organization, the top 11 made a concerted effort to ensure the strongest possible legislation passed.
