SOME CONSERVATIVES BLAST DEWHURST FOR LEAVING SENATE DURING ABORTION DEBATE
“What’s up with that?”
raising some eyebrows by suggesting the point of SB 5 is indeed to shut down
abortion facilities clinics around Texas, Lt. Gov. Dewhurst today doubled down
on that message. He’s also starting to take some heat from his right for being
at a steakhouse during some of this week’s Senate debate on the abortion
restrictions that he asked Gov. Perry to place on the call.
abortion facility owners won't spend some of their ill-gotten profits to
protect women's health, they SHOULD be shut down," Dewhurst said on
Twitter today. That’s after GOP senators on Tuesday night went out of their way
to try to make it clear that the new facilities standards included in SB 5 are
meant to “raise the standard of care” for women, not to shut down facilities.
