TX Gov. Rick Perry: Abortions after 20 Weeks is a Human Rights Issue!

Following a successful filibuster, Texas Gov. Rick Perry calls 2nd special session to pass abortion bill

Texas Gov. Rick Perry responded to the mob that shouted down members of the state Senate, who came a few minutes short of passing a bill that would ban late-term abortions and hold abortion clinics accountable for violating the health and safety of women.

“Even if they lose at the ballot box and come up short with stalling tactics, they will resort to mob tactics to force their agenda,” he said. He added: “the louder they scream, the more we know that we are getting something done.”

He said what the state witnessed Tuesday was nothing more than the hijacking of the democratic process and told pro-lifers to match their intensity but in a respectful and dignified manner.

The pro-life issue is too important and discussed his call for another special session to pass the 20-week abortion ban, saying, ”I am bringing lawmakers back to Austin to finish their business,” he said. “I put pro-life measures at the top of that list.”

Nearly 80,000 unborn children are lost to abortion each year in Texas. “It breaks my heart,” he said. “Abortion is a human rights issue and is a scar on our national conscience.”

  1. And the woman who fillibustered used a catheter which should not be allowed, so she could continue her fillibuster without having to go to the bathroom because she was going in a bag. Shameful!
