Texas Democrat isn't giving up on abortion class

The lone Democrat in the Texas Senate who backed the state's new abortion laws says he'll keep pushing for women to be required to complete an adoption course before terminating a pregnancy.

Sen. Eddie Lucio first proposed the measure in July, when Republican Gov. Rick Perry and GOP leaders made good on vows to pass tighter abortion restrictions previously stalled by an 11-hour Democratic filibuster and hundreds of shouting protesters.

The new laws ban abortions after 20 weeks in Texas and only allow the procedure in surgical centers. But Lucio wants the state to go further and mandate that women seeking an abortion complete a short course that would lay out options for putting the child up for adoption.

Critics call Lucio's proposal simplistic and burdensome. The Brownsville lawmaker told the Austin American-Statesman (http://bit.ly/15BIhRV ) that the requirement could help prevent more abortions.

1. there's nothing wrong with informing women of their options

BUT THAT IS WHAT PLANNED PARENTHOOD DOES - the problems with these assholes is they don't give a damn about the woman OR the fetus - their misogyny is strictly for political points and is SICKENING
