TX Gov. Rick Perry Claims Abortion Is a States' Rights Issue
The Note blog - ABC News: Rick Perry Categorizes Abortion as a States' Rights Issue, by Arlette Saenz:
Despite holding personal pro-life beliefs, Texas Gov. Rick Perry categorized abortion as a states’ rights issue today, saying that if Roe v. Wade was overturned, it should be up to the states to decide the legality of the procedure.
“You either have to believe in the 10th Amendment or you don’t,” Perry told reporters after a bill signing in Houston. “You can’t believe in the 10th Amendment for a few issues and then [for] something that doesn’t suit you say, 'We’d rather not have states decide that.'” . . .
