Evidently they're not up-to-date on Wisconsin's legislation.

Texas must be flush with cash, they've spent millions on special sessions and will need millions more to defend it in court.

Unfortunately, the citizens of Texas (read middle class) will have to pay for Perry's abuse of power.

Send it to the rioters who -- egged on by Cecile Richards and the media -- disrupted the first vote.

When the hooligans failed to stop the second House vote, they went ballistic afterward: "After yesterday's vote, mayhem broke out amongst pro-abortion protesters, forcing Troopers to remove them from the gallery. Five of the boisterous protestors were arrested and held in custody for five hours..."

The real abuse -- that of lawfully conducted legislative proceedings -- belongs to the screaming harpies who disrupted the House's first vote.

The citizens of Texas, not to mention the whole country, want this kind of restriction on late-term abortion.

The most recent Gallup survey in December 2012, found that while 61 percent of respondents said that abortion should be legal in the first three months of pregnancy, just 27 percent thought it should be legal in the second three months and a mere 14 percent of respondents favored legal abortion in the last three months of a pregnancy.

** During first three months of pregnancy: 61 percent "Should be legal," 31 percent "Should be illegal"

** During second three months of pregnancy: 27 percent "Should be legal," 64 percent "Should be illegal"

** Last three months of pregnancy: 14 percent "Should be legal," 80 percent "Should be illegal"
