Texas Gov. Perry Calls for 2nd Special Session to Finish Pro-Life Work

Published on

Texas pro-Life champ Governor Rick Perry called a second special session to start on July 1st, and in doing so, prioritized new protections on the sanctity of life.

Late Tuesday night, the entire world watched the angry mob of abortion activists disrupt the proceedings of the Texas Senate, screaming, stomping, and chanting so loudly from the gallery that the Senators could not hear the proceedings on the Senate floor below.   Senate Bill 5, the Pro-Life omnibus bill, did pass, but the formal processing of that final vote was not finished before the midnight deadline.

In his press release Wednesday afternoon, “I am calling the Legislature back into session because too much important work remains undone for the people of Texas.”

The same three issues that died on Tuesday night have been added to this special session’s agenda, including pro-Life measures.  Each special session is 30 days long, and the Governor has the power to call as many sessions as necessary.

“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,” emphasized Governor Perry in response to the violent outbursts from the abortion mob.  Several members of the State House who advocate for unrestricted abortion incited the crowd from the Senate floor by raising their arms and pumping up the crowd as the clock neared midnight.

“Through their duly elected representatives, the citizens of our state have made crystal clear their priorities for our great state,” Perry said. “Texans value life and want to protect women and the unborn.”

Perry addressed the crowd at the National Right to Life Convention Thursday morning, coincidentally held in Dallas this year.  He reiterated his priority for new prolife measures during the special session, giving special attention to the Preborn Pain Bill.

“In the four decades since Roe v. Wade, more than 50 million children have lost their chance at life. Faced with this scar on our national conscience, Texas has pursued policies to protect unborn children, and the laws we will pass in the coming weeks will build on that legacy of life.”

Text the word LIFE to 21824, and the Office of Governor Perry will send text updates during the upcoming special session – soon to be known as the most Pro-Life legislative session that Texas has ever seen.
