She exercised her choice to carry her child to term.  See how that works, Rick?

If only Rick Perry's mother had chosen differently.

Does that argument actually make sense to the people who use it?

Wow. She chose have a child without Rick Perry there to tell her what to do. How DID she manage to make that decision all by her pretty little self?

What, again, exactly, is so important about the 20-week mark?  Why not 22 or 24?

At any rate, I, for one, am "meh" on the concept of banning late-term abortion. I understand that sometimes they're medically necessary.  However, the draconian requirements Texas wants to put on PP is baffling to me.

I'm not even sure it's an argument.  Seems more like a poor, one-dimensional attempt a hypocrisy accusation.  Though I'm sure people do accept it as a valid argument.

As someone who could claim the same thing I still would never impose my own will on someone else's body. Stop trying to tell people who to run their lives.

Perry is actually bald. His beautiful wavy locks are in reality the outside portion of a parasite that is slowing dissolving the governors brain.

Perry had no problem presiding over an extremely late-term abortion yesterday. So much for "every life matters."
 
2013-06-27 01:38:16 PM  
The "what becomes of a child" argument seems quaint coming from the guy who's state just hit 500 executions.

Is that the game you'd like to play, Mr. Perry?

Well, I mean, I'm sure she was able to find some man who could hold her hand and gently tell her what to think and how to navigate her life. How else do you explain her success?

"Studies" from the same type of "researchers" who say gays can be cured if they pray hard enough and Hispanics have smaller brains.

She was the daughter of as single woman, she was a teenage mother herself. She managed to eventually graduate from Harvard Law School and serve in the Texas senate. It is just unfortunate that she hasn't learned from her own example that every life must be given a chance to realize its full potential and that every life matters.

Glad to see that Gov. Perry thinks it appropriate to tell others what lessons they should learn from their own life experiences.

I heard (but don't have a link to the figures) that a very high percentage, well over 90%, of abortions performed after the 20th week are done because of the mother's health or because the fetus is so badly malformed that it will not survive. So they are trying to stop a problem that doesn't exist... unless they plan on forcing women to sit by while their fetus kills them or endure 3 or 4 months more of a pregnancy knowing that the child won't survive.

/off to look up the source of the info

She went to Harvard law. Along with their bullshiat affirmative action, I'm sure they gave her a free pass too. It's the only answer.

It's a piety thing. I've lived here my entire life, and the relentless facade of religiosity knows no bounds. "Nice girls" just go away for a bit and the family hushes it up, unless you're poor in which case you're a slut and a whore. Disgusting.

That's what they think they can get away with using their bogus studies and transparent lies. If they succeed, they will move it back or add some other additional restriction. And late term abortions are not common and are not done on a whim as they like to imply. And they are absolutely necessary to be allowed and are an important part of women having control over their own bodies, choices, and lives.

TheOmni: At least all this further exposes the lie that the bill was about women's health.


(Lt. Gov) Dewhurst went on record claiming the bill was about "protecting unborn babies." That quote is definitely going to come up when reproductive rights groups sue and argue that the regulations are about stopping abortion and not about protecting women's health. Link

He's going to weasel out by saying it's about the health of the baby.

What does that have to do with a bill that only made getting an abortion safer? We were told this countless times the other night by proponents of the legislation

I cannot even express my contempt for this worthless bit of human garbage. F*CK YOU RICK PERRY!!

You are a clown. You're stupid, uneducated, and foolish. You made yourself and your state look ridiculous on a national stage last year, and anyone with even a hint of self awareness would have slunk off into the shadows after your absurd introduction to prime time.

You are the reason people like me will never, ever vote for a Republican. Good job. You lost a generation.

The fact that Rick Perry's mom carried him to term is perhaps the best argument in favor of abortion.

Only 1.5 percent of the 1.21 million abortions each year, or about 18,000, occur later than 20 weeks after conception, and many of these involve medical emergencies, said Ms. Nash of the Guttmacher Institute.


OK, the 90+ figure I got was from the number of abortions that occur before 20 weeks.

Still, these laws are not about saving any babies. They are about political grandstanding, showing the base that they are the party of life or some such bullshiat.

It's about controlling women's bodies and choices. There's a lot of political grandstanding involved as well as showing off to the base, but none of this has to do with life, it's entirely about control.

No, they don't want to stop all abortions at all. They don't mind people getting sick and dying from backalley abortions. They never protested that. They want to punish women for daring to be sexually 'uncontrolled.'
