Perry calls second special session — abortion bill back on the call

Just hours after the Texas Senate failed to pass a package of strict abortion restrictions, Gov. Rick Perry on Wednesday said he is hauling the Legislature back in for a second special session set to begin Monday.

“I am calling the Legislature back into session because too much important work remains undone for the people of Texas,” Perry said in a statement.

The special session call Perry laid out Wednesday deals with the three bills that were left hanging in the Senate: a catch-all anti-abortion proposal, a bill for transportation funding and one dealing with sentencing guidelines for 17-year-olds convicted of capital murder.

“Texans value life and want to protect women and the unborn. Texans want a transportation system that keeps them moving. Texans want a court system that is fair and just,” Perry said. “We will not allow the breakdown of decorum and decency to prevent us from doing what the people of this state hired us to do.”

The Dems need to get as rabid as the repukes are, it's the only way, reason doesn't work with the whack job repukes. Get vicious.

If abortion is so wrong, and "Texans value life", how come the state has executed 499 people since reviving the death penalty less than 30 years ago ?

If life is sacred, it is not for mere men to judge one unborn life as worthy, and another lfe as unworthy.

This is going to get very ugly. Those stupid rightwingers were taken by surprise. Next time, the capitol police will either block entrance early on or start hauling people out at the slightest disturbance. Not only that, there will be maneuvering to keep any dems from filibustering.

It's all a fucking political game, abortion is a lightning rod issue that attracts the faux moralistic fools onto the team of haters. The rich repukes will arrange for their 'procedures', and have their foolish followers believe their rubbish.

Perry and the rest of the GOP are awfully stupid. They are alienating women, minorities and it will kill their party if we're lucky.

"The special session is for three different reasons: 1) Texans value life and want to protect women and the unborn; 2) Texans want a transportation system that keeps them moving; and 3) Texans want a, um.... they want to- that is they really value a strong... oh I give up. Oops"
