Republican state and federal legislators continually seek new opportunities to be spanked by the court system for their incredibly invasive and empathy-devoid, wholly self-serving, and blatantly unconstitutional policy proposals and legislative offerings.

Thank you, may I have another?

I feel this is between the woman and the lord, not the republicans. How Texas doing with the fertilizer plant that illegally stocked dangerous chemicals destroying a town, maiming and killing many. Oh I forgot that was owned by a man

Probably because the owners of those plants donate to the re-election campaigns.

"Supporters say the bills would make abortions safer." I think this is the furthest thing from their minds.

I'm not here to justify your labels

Yeah, why don't they just say that by forbidding all abortions it will make them safer... well, at least the legal ones...

Of course they did. Did anyone think for even a nanosecond they would stop this 40 plus year old waste of money. For any reason other than death of the GOP it will never end. LET'S VOTE THEM OUT OF EXISTENCE THE TIME IS ABOUT 40 PLUS YEARS PAST DUE.

I'd like to say "only in Texas", but unfortunately state actions to curb or eliminate abortion are happening increasingly in the red states.

Defending it will be expensive for Texas, and their debt is already climbing faster than the national debt.

That's actually old news.
As far as I know, nothing's changed.

These States can "pass" anything they want, but FEDERAL law trumps State law...and Abortion is LEGAL in this country. See "Roe vs. Wade".

Further, MOST of these attacks on women at the State level are and have been BLOCKED or OVERTURNED by courts at the local, state district, Federal, and Supreme court level.......so RIck Perry and his women hating THUGS in Texas will NOT be able to FORCE women to have babies if they CHOOSE not to.

Unfortunately some states are passing laws to negate federal law, like telling state officials to ignore certain gun laws. I fear abortion will be next.

State laws which negate federal laws will be struck down. Another waste of money.
