Governor Rick Perry Signs Anti-Abortion Bill HB2 Into Law As Protesters Chant, “Shame! Shame!”

Sad day in Texas
Texas HB2 Protest

This morning, Texas Governor Rick Perry signed devastating anti-abortion bill HB2 into law behind closed doors in an auditorium at the Texas State Capitol. As Perry and his cronies congratulated each other on passing a piece of legislation that will undoubtedly result in the deaths of some of their constituents, protesters camped outside the doors shouted “Shame!”, chanted “The blood of Texas women is on your hands!”, and sang “We’re Not Gonna Take It.” Some protesters, like those pictured above, simply taped their mouths with duct tape and held signs in silent protest. Democratic superhero Wendy Davis, Planned Parenthood President Cecile Richards, and a multitude of Texas activists have vowed to continue fighting the law.
