Last night, David Dewhurst sent an email to his campaign list complaining about the “angry throng” practicing “Obama-style, mob-rule politics” on Tuesday night. He accused them of “attack[ing]the sanctity of life”. Dewhurst is referring to the coalition of Texans from the all over the state who came to the Capitol to ensure that Texas women have access to safe abortions, family planning services, and keep their constitutional right to choose.
David Dewhurst, Rick Perry and Texas Republicans are trying to shut down all but five abortion clinics in the state, forcing women into back-alley abortions, creating a black market for ad-hoc abortion pills, and denying women the family planning services provided by these clinics. Who's attacking the sanctity of life? There's no debate: Texas Republicans are attacking the livelihoods of Texas women.
