Gov. Rick Perry has led the charge in Texas to make it illegal to have an abortion after 20 weeks, thereby joining 10 other states that do the same. This is a state issue and the governor has listened to what Texans want.
Gov. Rick Perry today issued the following statement applauding the Senate’s passage of pro-life legislation, HB 2:
“Today the Texas Legislature took its final step in our historic effort to protect life. This legislation builds on the strong and unwavering commitment we have made to defend life and protect women’s health. I am proud of our lawmakers, and citizens who tirelessly defended our smallest and most vulnerable Texans and future Texans.”
