Gov. Rick Perry backs 20-week abortion ban in Texas
Texas Gov. Rick Perry (R) on Tuesday endorsed legislation that would prohibit abortion after 20-weeks of pregnancy.
State Sen. Glenn Hegar (R) and state Rep. Jodie Laubenberg (R) introduced the Preborn Pain Bill to the Texas legislature earlier in the day.
âThe state has a responsibility to prevent the needless suffering of our most vulnerable citizens, and these bills introduced by Sen. Hegar and Rep. Laubenberg are a vital step toward meeting that obligation,â Perry said in a statement.
Hegar said in a statement the proposed law would âshield these preborn babies from inhumane and unnecessary pain.â
