#TXLEGE: How Jay Wiley's Son shaped Jay Wiley's pro-life convictions

“Before I formed you in the womb I knew you;
Before you were born I sanctified you;
I ordained you a prophet to the nations.”
Jeremiah 1:5

Jay Wiley is running for the Western Travis County house seat currently occupied by Paul Workman; Wiley explains how a vote Workman took last session to preserve a pro-abortion loophole would have impacted his family:


  • While his wife Sally was pregnant with their son Anders, they found out Anders had a heart defect.
    • Offered the option of abortion.
    • Obviously, they declined.
  • Instead, they had heart surgery performed on Anders in utero; that was followed by additional surgeries over the years.
  • Despite the challenges, today Anders is a thriving 10 year old.
  • Thus, Anders is a textbook example of the type of baby who could be legally aborted under the "fetal abnormality" loophole Paul Workman voted to preserve.
  • "Shamefully, liberal Republicans teamed up with Democrats to kill this amendment; Paul Workman was one of those Republicans.
  • Workman then had the nerve to make a "journal statement" changing his vote.
    • Wiley: "This is an example of the type of cowardice I'm running against in the Texas House."
  • "Anders life has no less value than yours or mine."
