|From the Texas Tribune|
We have a saying here in Texas “We do things bigger in Texas”. It isn’t really true, but its a cheap simple minded saying to make Texas seem like it’s something it isn’t. But Texas does have some of the biggest idiots elected to office. Case in point State Representative Tony Tinderholt.
This past session Tinderholt filed a bill that would completely ban abortions. From Elle:
Rep. Tony Tinderholt (R-Arlington) introduces the Abolition of Abortion in Texas Act, a bill so extreme that it would criminalize abortion and make women “personally responsible” for having sex. The bill, which went nowhere, would ban all abortions, even in cases of rape and incest. It would give law enforcement permission to charge women and their doctors with murder.
