Texas Governor Rick Perry has signed the abortion bill. Pro-aborts are not only changing their shorts over this because many abortion clinics may have to shut down but because polling indicates support for this move.

The SBA-List reports:

“This is a lifesaving victory for Texas women and unborn children,” said SBA List President Marjorie Dannenfelser. “We thank Governor Perry, the pro-life legislators, and the entire statewide coalition including Texas Right to Life, Texas Alliance for Life, Concerned Women for America of Texas, 40 Days for Life, and so many others for making this happen.

“Texas’ monumental new law sheds light on the urgent need for action in the U.S. Senate. Unborn children and women deserve federal protection from horrific late-term abortions. Polls consistently show that the majority of Americans support protecting babies and women late in pregnancy and Senate Majority Leader Reid should bring this to the floor for a vote. If he and his Senate colleagues stand with the American people against the barbarism of late-term abortion, they have nothing to fear from a Senate vote. Conversely, remaining silent on this – especially in the aftermath of Kermit Gosnell and other abortion clinic horrors – would be both a moral and political mistake.”

“Real lives are at stake,” continued Dannenfelser. “Washington, as well as the abortion lobby, must not be allowed to ignore the women and babies suffering barbaric late-term abortions nationwide.”

This is great news. Measure how great it is by the number of lives that may be saved by it. That’s a pretty good gauge, isn’t it? And also by how much it freaks out those profiting off the killing of the unborn. That’s also a good gauge.
