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.

“The 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,” Perry said in a statement.

Hegar said in a statement the proposed law would “shield these preborn babies from inhumane and unnecessary pain.”
