A Texas-Sized Life-or-Death Battle
They say everything’s bigger in Texas and that was true in the battle surrounding major pro-life legislation. With the support of a Texas majority, pro-life legislators and staff fought to pass a bill that would put restrictions on late-term abortion and protect women’s health by bringing all abortion facilities up to a standard level of medical care. After a first special session failed to pass the bill due to chaos caused by the opposition, Governor Perry called for a second session. And this time, the pro-life support was out in full-force helping legislators reach a victorious vote.
