Only one of those clinics provided abortion services.

How many times do we need to say it over and over? This is not about abortion, this is about women's health and the right to make your own decisions about health and the future. Stupid people believe every word said by stupid politicians. Try explaining this to the future.

This is about POWER over women; this is about CONTROL.

They continue to say there is no WAR ON WOMEN. This is abundant proof that the war is alive and well in TEXAS.

Rick Perry is the dolt who officially proclaimed the three-day period from Friday, April 22, 2011, to Sunday, April 24, 2011, as Days of Prayer for Rain in the State of Texas. I hope he officially proclaims three days of prayer for the women of Texas who have been deprived of their only source of medical care and contraception. They're certainly going to need all the help they can get! I can't wait until this incompetent fool is voted out of office!

Good news. We don't have to wait for (and/or hope that) Texans to vote Rick Perry out of office! According to an article in USA Today "Texas Gov. Rick Perry said Monday that he will not seek re-election next year, bringing an end to his record-setting tenure as chief executive of the Lone Star state. 'The time has come to pass on the mantle of leadership,' Perry, a Republican, said at a news conference in San Antonio surrounded by hundreds of supporters. "

The mantle of leadership? Good choice of words, actually. defines "mantle" as "something that covers, envelops, or conceals: the mantle of darkness."

Unfortunately, the article went on to state that: "Despite some voter fatigue over Perry, political observers said it will be hard for Texas Democrats to unravel the two-decade dominance of Republicans. 'The Democrats' problems in Texas are much bigger than Rick Perry,' Henson said."
