(CNN) - Texas Gov. Rick Perry called another special session of the state Legislature on Wednesday after a Democratic filibuster killed a bill that would have imposed strict new regulations on abortion providers in the state.

Probably should park your uterus there also.
If Perry has his way there will never be another abortion in Texas again.
The proposed legislation raises constitutional questions. Politically. this dispute pushes women away from the Republican party. It is a lose-lose situation for "social conservatives", and will hasten Governor Perry's descent into oblivion.
It is amazing that the media never calls out the GOP and their blatant disrespect for order and anything that does not fit their narrow agenda.
Why does the GOP and red Texas hate democracy so much?
An unrelenting commitment to stick it to women, eh? Well, we'll see how it works for you during national elections. Even the state elections might not be safe: the optics of this are TERRIBLE.
The GOP's war on women, and total disregard for job creation continues...
Wazzamatta Gub? Can't stand the rule of law or can't stand being bested. This is the type action that has turned Texas into a laughing stock. Relax, within a few weeks, after the supreme court ruling, you can just keep those pesky women from voting period. Proceed Gubaner, proceed.
Another brain dead conservative who should hold any office.
Oops... 'Should not hold office.'
Of all the politicians since W., this monster is the worst of all. The absolute most evil excuse for a human being, has yet to be elected to office.
Mr. Perry and his ilk will be the death of the GOP. They learned nothing from yesterday apparently. They can pass their mean little anti-woman law and win the battle. The war however may already be lost for them.
I wish these GOP scrubs would pay as much attention to jobs, jobs and jobs as they do trying to tell a women what to do, the unemployment rate would 3%. You give the GOP 20 weeks prior you can get an abortion then next year they will want it to be 10 weeks. Why is it that 99% are men telling women what to do with their bodies? Its like women going around telling men they have to get vasectomies. These men need to mind their own business. Unbelievable!!!
If at all possible, I'm going to avoid Texas. A state this backward doesn't need my business or patronage. These people are best left in the past. As far away in the past as humanly possible to leave them.
Perry is your typical Rethuglican politician, he preaches about too much government except when his right wing buddies want to press their ideals on everyone else.
He is stamping his little governor foot because he couldn't get his way. This makes little sense where they don't have medical insurance for the women who can no longer have a legal abortion. Where are the increases to adoption programs to take care of the children that will be born?
Stay the course Governer, your on the right side of morality and decency even , if we are outnumbered by hedonistic animals that care about nothing except for they're own convenience. You will lead the way, for others to follow- and your legacy will be that of, a great man fighting the great fight of our time – defending the most vulnerable and helpless amongst us – the unborn. God Bless
Texas is the home of Rick Perry. You have my sympathy. On the other hand, the citizens of Texas elected him, and they deserve him.
HUNTSVILLE, Texas — Texas marked a solemn moment in criminal justice Wednesday evening, executing its 500th inmate since it resumed carrying out capital punishment in 1982.
Rick Perry , more executions , less abortions .
Bye bye Perry your time is up dude.
If I were a Republican,. I would start preparing for the imminent time when Democratic constituencies are the solid majority and/or hold the statehouse. I would stop twisting the rules and process to try to force my views on others UNDEMOCRAtICaLLY.
One day soon Republicans will be groveling for some protections and I hope Democrats put a book on their necks.
Perry is as dumb as a doorknob. At least doorknobs serve a purpose.
I hope your motion fails, brainless cowboy.
