Gov. Rick Perry's statement on Judge Yeakel's HB2 ruling

Aug. 29,2014
"House Bill 2 is the product of a deliberative legislative process and represents the will of Texans. Today's decision exposes Texas women who choose to pursue an abortion to potentially unsafe conditions, especially if an emergency occurs. I'm confident the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals will act to affirm Texas' right to determine what is in the best interest of Texans."

Gov. Rick Perry Statement regarding the decision by the Travis County Grand Jury

Aug. 16, 2014
AUSTIN – Gov. Rick Perry today made the following statement regarding the decision by the Travis County Grand Jury: “As governor, I took an oath to faithfully uphold the constitution of Texas, a pledge that I have kept every day as I've worked on behalf of Texans for the last 14 years. This same constitution clearly outlines the authority of any governor to veto items at his or her discretion. Just as I have following every legislative session during my service as governor, I exercised this authority to veto funding for an office whose leadership had lost the public's confidence by acting inappropriately and unethically. “I wholeheartedly and unequivocally stand behind my veto, and will continue to defend this lawful action of my executive authority as governor. We don't settle political differences with indictments in this country. It is outrageous that some would use partisan political theatrics to rip away at the very fabric of our state's constitution. “This indictment amounts to nothing more than an abuse of power and I cannot, and will not, allow that to happen. I intend to fight against those who would erode our state's constitution and laws purely for political purposes, and I intend to win. I will explore every legal avenue to expedite this matter and bring it to a swift conclusion. I am confident we will ultimately prevail, that this farce of a prosecution will be revealed for what it is, and that those responsible will be held to account.” <script type="text/javascript" src="http://video.foxnews.com/v/embed.js?id=3733362080001&w=466&h=263"></script><noscript>Watch the latest video at <a href="http://video.foxnews.com">video.foxnews.com</a></noscript>
