    I think now that it's futile to argue that the bill lacks majority support, they have to pretend that there are no female voters in Texas.

    The females who object to that bill were there, hanging and shrieking from the rafters. There were what, 50?

    If the capital of Texas wasn't here in uber liberal Austin, they may have gotten 5 or 10 shriekers.

    If it was the will of the people Roe v Wade wouldn't have lasted 40 years.

    SCOTUS isn't the will of the people.

    No, it isn't.

    It's a law that overrode the will of the people.

    Seems like the bozo is you (or you have been under the influence too long) and the rest of the conservatives who keep making racists remarks and laws against Hispanics. :lmao::lmao::lmao::lmao::lmao::lmao::lmao:

    You can't stop progress, at least not with such backward ideas as cons have presented. Major cities in Texas went blue in 2012 - so it's just a matter of time that the little rural areas with their backward thinking get shoved into oblivion.


    Republicans are certainly aware that change is afoot in Texas. “No less an authority than Karl Rove is known to have been worrying about the political future of Texas for years,” says The Hill. The GOP is at work hiring 24 “minority outreach” staffers and has more than put its support behind Senators Marco Rubio of Florida and Ted Cruz of Texas. But, as Parker notes, this could be another sign of the Republicans not quite realizing what they need to do. Rubio and Cruz are both Cuban-American; while non-Hispanics may not make much of this, it “significantly diminishes their appeal to Texas’ Latinos, who are primarily of Mexican heritage.”

    Progress would be to improve the standards of the clinics that are providing abortion.

    It appears you don't stand for progress at all.

    I don't understand why progressives are so adamantly opposed to bringing abortions out of the back alley and into mainstream medicine.

    They keep insisting that abortion IS about health...yet they steadfastly refuse to require them to provide up to date, medically acceptable treatment in clean, well outfitted clinics.

    Abortion allows women to shrug off the guilt of killing their baby. This is the cornerstone of why they want to keep it available.

    They like to spew craziness about "It's my body" or "I don't want Gov. in my personal life"..yada..yada....when if they preferred common sense and responsibility in favor of reckless sexual behavior, they wouldn't have to fight FOR abortion. It would just be a poriah of society and be something snubbbed by the masses of women and not embraced.

    Another indicator of the sick mental state the Abortion Lusters are in.

    I lived for over thirty years in El Paso, Harker Heights, Nacogdoches, Tyler, and in Panola County, as well as in western LA and FL.

    The old, insular, parochial, old timey religion hating power is almost over. The young evangelical and fundamentalist youth think their parents and grand parents are wrong about so many things on race, politics, marriage, and so forth.

    Allied with other youth and rising Hispanic power, Texas is destined to go blue in the next times years if folks like you do not look up and see what's coming down the RR track.
