RICHMOND, VA – Monday afternoon, Delegate Wren Williams (R – Stuart) voted to pass the following three Pro-Life bills through House Courts of Justice Subcommittee One, fulfilling his campaign promise to always fight for Life:
- HB1795 (Freitas) would require that life-saving aid be rendered to save the life of any unborn child who survives a failed abortion.
- HB2270 (Greenhalgh) would obligate physicians and nurse practitioners to obtain a pregnant mother’s informed written consent before they perform an abortion.
- HB2476 (Durant) would establish and create an informational website where pregnant mothers can discover adoption agencies, faith-based organizations, and other available resources and services, such as ultrasound imaging and heart monitoring.
Williams also made arguments against pro-abortion legislation and voted to table HJ519, which would create a referendum to amend the Constitution of Virginia to add a “right to reproductive freedom” for an individual to “effectuate one’s own decisions about all matters related to one’s pregnancy.” This would guarantee a right to abortion at any stage of a pregnancy, including point of birth.
The following statement can be attributed to Del. Wren Williams:
“My wife Britt and I are committed Christians and have always been Pro-Life,” Williams said. “Especially now as a new father, I have seen with my own eyes how precious Life is, and how these little ones are fearfully and wonderfully made. The unborn deserve our protection and I will always be a voice for them.
It is an honor to fulfill my campaign promises to fight for Life, protect the unborn, and support pregnant mothers. You can always count on me to stand for Life.”
Wren Williams is the sitting delegate representing Virginia’s 9th House District, serving on the Committees on Public Safety, Privileges and Elections, and Courts of Justice. Since redistricting, Williams is running for re-election in Virginia’s new 47th House District. Prior to his election as delegate, Williams served as chairman of the Patrick County Republican Committee (PCRC), where he increased membership, raised money, and flipped the board of supervisors and school board to Republican control – earning the Republican Party of Virginia’s “Unit of the Year” award. During the 2020 election, Wren traveled the country to help the Republican National Committee (RNC) and President Trump fight for election integrity in the courtroom in Wisconsin. In 2021, Williams made headlines when he challenged and defeated a 14-year incumbent by 26 points in the Republican Primary. Outside of politics, Wren lives with his wife, Britt, and son, Rhett, in Stuart, VA. Wren and Britt own and operate Schneider & Williams Law Firm.
