Texas Gov. Rick Perry said Sunday that state Sen. Wendy Davisâ€™ attention-getting filibuster notwithstanding, the Legislature is going to approve restrictions on abortion when it gavels in another special session this week.
â€œWeâ€™re going to pass some restrictions on abortion,â€ he said on â€œFox News Sunday.â€ â€œTexas is a place where we defend life. I mean, thatâ€™s the powerful message here and thatâ€™s what weâ€™re focused on and politics will take care of itself.â€
â€œPeople have relayed to me that never in the history of Texas [have] they seen that type of mob rule come in and discombobulate a legislative session,â€ he continued.
Mr. Perry clarified that he was not referring to Ms. Davisâ€™ filibuster, but rather the decorum of the Senate chamber during the debate as â€œmob rule.â€
He also defended remarks he made recently at the National Right to Life Conference, where he described Ms. Davis as â€œa teenage mother herselfâ€ who eventually graduated from Harvard Law School and serves in the Texas Senate.
