Really, Rick Perry?


Rick Perry

Another "Ahhhhh" moment.

Here's the words of Rick Perry as he attacked Wendy Davis, the Texas State Senator:

"Even the woman who filibustered the Senate the other day was born into difficult circumstances. She was the daughter of a single woman, she was a teenage mother herself. She managed to eventually graduate from Harvard Law School and serve in the Texas senate," Perry said Thursday in a speech to the National Right to Life Convention. "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."

Now Rick, you really don't believe that, do you?  If you do, then using your same argument, some people would say that you're mother used poor judgement in not aborting you.  You have reached your full potential (Oh, and congratulations on the 500th person put to death in Texas under capital punishment).  You've set another record  and in doing so, exemplify why your never having existed would have been better for Texas.

What's good for the goose is good for the gander, so they say in your parts... Whatever planet those parts are from. Can't you realize, from the noise this vote has brought up, that you wasted state money for this special session that just concluded and you're wasting more more on a ordering up a new session, just to pass a bill that's as unpopular as your are nationally?  You couldn't get this bill passed in normal session.  You couldn't get it passed in the first special session.  Why are you still trying?

Put that money to good use, not another additional session.  Fix a road, or a bridge, or use the money to educate some needy students.  Or even better, to feed some starving children.  You so want to do away with abortion.  Then feed the product of your affections. Don't force them into the world and then make them suffer.

No one is forcing anyone to have an abortion.  But Roe v. Wade according to the Supreme Court, says it is legal.  So put your efforts and the state's money into fighting crime, not creating new criminals.
