Reminding all of us that he is considering another presidential run, Texas Governor Rick Perry announced his support for a plan to ban abortions after 20 weeks, a point at which he falsely claims fetuses can feel pain. But like lawmakers in Nebraska, Arizona, and elsewhere, he is clear that though the allegations of pain is the cover story, the real goal is just to ban abortions any way he can.
Via ABC News:
Perry said he would like "to make abortion at any stage a thing of the past," but since that isn't possible under federal law, the Legislature has an "obligation to end that kind of cruelty" when an unborn child can feel pain.
