FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
WILL THE REAL DR. TOM OLIVERSON PLEASE STAND UP?
It is expected that confusion reigns during election cycles, but really, how does a candidate for the Texas State House claim to advocate for Pro-Life while donating money to an organization that is intent on protecting abortion? In a recent announcement Texas Right to Life and Empower Texans endorsed Dr. Tom Oliverson in the race for Texas House District 130. Indeed, under the heading “Protecting the Unborn” on his webpage, Oliverson does claim the following:
“An unapologetic defender of life, Dr. Oliverson is staunchly opposed to abortion.”

Kebodeaux goes on to explain why the two organizations differ on issues of abortion, life sustaining fluids and DNR. Here is another excerpt from the article:
“TMA and Texas Right to Life differ on the definition of “anti-medicine.” Texas Right to Life’s definition includes feeding and treating patients, respecting advance directives, ensuring pregnant women are sufficiently informed before undergoing a life-changing and life-ending decision, and taking all measures allowable by law to protect the preborn….”
Having understood all this, in addition to the fact that, as an Alternate Delegate, he represented the TMA/TXPAC at the TMA Convention in support of the TMA values, could Dr. Tom Oliverson’s $6,000 donation to TMA/TexPAC have influenced the endorsement? Has he also donated money to the Texas Right to Life as a measure of counteracting his actions in support of an organization advocating abortions, while he espouses being a Pro-Life candidate? What is Dr. Oliverson’s real position on the key issues?
I guess the primary season is getting into high gear.
