Gov. Perry Adds Two Issues to Special Session Call

Statement

By:
Date:
Location: Austin. TX

Gov. Rick Perry today expanded the special session call to include:

* Legislation relating to the regulation of abortion procedures, providers and facilities.

* Legislation relating to establishing a mandatory sentence of life with parole for a capital felony committed by a 17-year-old offender.

"The horrors of the national late-term abortion industry are continuing to come to light, one atrocity at a time. Sadly, some of those same atrocities happen in our own state. In Texas, we value all life, and we've worked to cultivate a culture that supports the birth of every child," Gov. Perry said. "We have an obligation to protect unborn children, and to hold those who peddle these abortions to standards that would minimize the death, disease and pain they cause."
