"In a speech to the conservative Heritage Foundation that year, Perry told a New York audience how three out of five Texas counties lacked an obstetrician.

"That's a hardship for many pregnant women in certain areas of our state, but especially women with high-risk pregnancies," Perry said.

Eight years later, that ratio is the same."

Same ol' lying Perry. He got anti-consumer legislation passed to supposedly "help" pregnant women, which DID NOT HAPPEN.

Wonder how much money Perry collected from lobbyists to get his anti-consumer bill passed?
