    Greenberg Quinlan Rosner Research poll:

    A majority of Texans oppose the legislation currently being considered by the legislature that imposes restrictions on abortion and 80 percent do not want abortion to be raised during the special session of the legislature called at the end of May by Governor Rick Perry.

    Of registered voters, 63 percent say the state has enough restrictions on abortion and 71 percent thinking that the Governor and legislature should be more focused on the economy and jobs. A majority opposes the sort of legislation passed by the state Senate and being considered by the state House during this legislative Special Session, believing that it imposes further restrictions on abortion. Overall, only 34 percent trust the Governor and the legislature to make decisions about women's healthcare.

    •  We're electing Republicans (0+ / 0-)

      I'm sorry, but Texas is electing Republicans and this is exactly, precisely what Republicans do. Republicans in Congress, Republicans in every State Congress where they have a majority, even Republicans in the Texas Board of Education push abstinence over actual sex education.

      If Texas didn't want these types of laws to be passed, they'd stop electing Republicans to positions of power.

      I say this as a member of Battleground Texas and an active Democrat.
