Texas Governor Rick Perry Signs Late Term Abortion Ban Bill Into Law


Following huge protests, which included participants chanting “Hail Satan” and having jars of urine and feces, which were to be used against their opponents, confiscated, Texas Governor Rick Perry signed into law legislation passed in the Texas House and Senate that would put heavier restrictions upon abortions in the Lone Star State,

The Washington Times reports:

More than 100 Republican lawmakers attended the signing ceremony with a small band of protesters outside dressed in black and holding a sign that read, “Shame.” The legislation had sparked weeks of protests at the state Capitol.

The new law bans abortions after the 20th week of pregnancy and dictates when abortion-inducing drugs can be taken. But it also requires abortion clinic doctors to have hospital admitting privileges and restricts abortions to surgical centers. Only five of Texas’ 42 abortion clinics currently meet the new requirements.

The battle has been long and hard and is not over, but the fight for the lives of the unborn is alive and well and this is a step in the right direction. Ultimately, the murder of the unborn needs to be completely eliminated. I’m glad there are those still willing to fight for those unable to fight for themselves.
