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.”

3. States can still base legislation off junk science promoted by evangelicals?

Whenever I hear about shitty bills that come out of southern state legislatures I think to myself, "hey maybe Ted Nugent was right! It wouldn't be so bad for those states to secede after all!"

5. I have heard about how a lot of "post-born" children are treated in Texas.

Inhumane and "suffering unnecessary pain" sums it up pretty well. But I'm sure these fine officials, Hegar, Laubenberg and Perry, are very concerned about that, and working hard to make sure they're shielded by ensuring children's services agencies are well staffed and funded.

Or more likely, not so much.

I weep for those kids!

7. Ok, Prick Perry,

if "The state has a responsibility to prevent the needless suffering of our most vulnerable citizens...", does that mean that all of a sudden Texas will start paying for all medical care for the disabled?
