Rick 'The Coat Hanger' Perry (Gov, R-TX) offered sage advice to Texas women last night at a fund raiser for a Republican Renaissance-Faire with an Inquisition theme.
When asked by a reporter what women, who require abortion medical services, should do if the bill passes, Governor Perry replied:
"I will tell you: There's three methods they can use after I sign this bill: A Coat Hanger, A Punch In The Gut and the -- what's the third one there? Let's see. ... OK. So A Coat Hanger, A Punch In The Gut and the -- ... The third medical procedure I would suggest -- I would suggest A Coat Hanger, the ... A Punch In The Gut and -- let's see -- I can't. The third one, I can't. Sorry. Oops." –Governor Rick PerryIn reference to his Bible readin' he added, "I'm an Old Testes-ment kinda guy.". Critics however contend that the Republican edition of the Bible is too heavily edited, especially since 'the Money Changers' are featured as heroes and references to 'helping the poor' are redacted.
Gov. Perry exhibits a state of the art medical device, approved and endorsed by the RNC Medical Research Division.
Snark Notice: Perry did not say any of this, although he might just as well have said it. This is presented as humor to demonstrate the effect of this bill on the women of Texas.
