Yesterday, Gov. Rick Perry outlined initiatives to strengthen the state’s ban on abortions, including promoting legislation to stop abortions after 20 weeks of pregnancy.
He was joined by Senator-elect Donna Campbell and pro-life groups at the Source Pregnancy Center in Houston.
“Over the last decade, Texas has taken extraordinary steps to protect the lives of the unborn, but when 80,000 lives continue to be lost to abortion each year in our state, we know our work is far from over,” Gov. Perry said. “In Texas, the Legislature meets for only 140 days every other year. As supporters of life, we have an obligation to make sure that every one of those days counts when it comes to protecting our most vulnerable citizens.”
