Gov. Perry Resurrects Texas SB5, Better Not Ban the Bleach

By Eric Allie – June 27, 2013

Gov. Rick Perry said that a filibuster and protests that kept the Texas Senate from passing SB5 were “nothing more than the hijacking of the democratic process,” but apparently for the janitors at the Texas capitol building in Austin, they were more than that.

They apparently left behind a heap of filth, just as liberal protestors did at the Wisconsin capitol building, and typically always do quite frankly. State Senator Kelly Hancock tweeted this morning that a room reserved for the protesters “was trashed with vomit and food throughout.”

Addressing the National Right to Life Convention on Thursday, Perry vowed his state will nonetheless push ahead to approve a ban on abortion after 20 weeks of pregnancy.

Democratic State Sen. Wendy Davis, with some last-minute help from filthy protesters in the public gallery, were successful in their albeit futile effort to kill a bill imposing new limits to abortion in Texas in the Legislature at midnight Tuesday.

But Perry called a second special legislative session starting Monday. That will give the Republican-controlled Legislature an extra 30 days to pass the new limits on abortion. State Senator Wendy Davis, in reality, did the GOP as a whole an incredibly big favor. Now, the cat is out of the bag on the left’s position on abortion.

While liberals herald her as a hero, they have exposed just how left they are of the American mainstream, as the federal “They Feel Pain” bill did not get the same press. Speaking of tweets, I think Laura Ingraham made the point:

Well? If you cannot explain how or why the decision to have an abortion cannot be made by the time babies are fully developed human beings – 5 and 6 months old, which is why they use weeks to dehumanize them – perfectly capable of survival outside of the mother’s womb, then you are going to have a serious problem when the independent expenditure groups come after you.
