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 Perry
In 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.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
