Texas Governor Rick Perry’s Wife: Abortion Is ‘A Woman’s Right’
Texas Governor Rick Perry has pushed through some of the toughest anti-abortion laws in the country, and yet he is married to a woman who believes it is “a woman’s right” to do with her body as she wishes.
When asked at an interview at the Texas Tribune Festival if she thinks the governor’s administration “got it right” on abortion policy, Anita Perry immediately responded, “Well, that’s really difficult for me.” And while she clearly expressed personal opposition to abortion, she twice referred to that choice as “a woman’s right.”
…INTERVIEWER: But your personal point of view is that it’s a person’s decision within the law to make that choice?
PERRY: Well I don’t really think that’s making news. I mean, I think that yeah, that could be a woman’s right. Just like it’s a man’s right if he wants to have some kind of procedure.
