Laughing at Rick *Oops* Perry O Day- Joan Rivers Abortion and Indictment Edition


Laughing at Rick *Oops* Perry O Day- Joan Rivers Abortion and Indictment Edition

22 September 2014 at 1:55:21 PM

Duh. Again, proof that glasses don't add brains. Rick Perry tried to use Joan Rivers to push his restrictive abortion law

Rivers was undergoing a routine procedure at a New York outpatient surgery center when the 81-year-old entertainer went into cardiac arrest and died earlier this month. Health officials in New York are investigating.

"It was interesting that Joan Rivers and the procedure that she had done, where she died, that was a clinic," Perry said. "It's a curious thought, that if they had that type of regulations in place whether or not that individual would be still alive."

Except that the clinic Joan Rivers was in IS an ambulatory surgical center. Oops

Totally missed @amanbatheja reporting earlier: Clinic where Joan Rivers died *is* an ambulatory surgical center

Also from Bloomberg about Yorkville Endoscopy Center,

Guess what Joan Rivers would have said about Rick Perry

“Anyone who doesn't believe in Planned Parenthood is a moron,” - 

LOVE this- from Tod Robberson

If the law truly is designed to increase the safety of women, then Perry truly should apply it to all clinics in Texas, regardless of the surgical procedure being contemplated. Because you just can’t be too safe. Men included.

Want that mole removed from your arm? Please measure those clinic doors and hallways ahead of time, because we might have to rush you out of here. Want that lip stitched up from the fall off your bike? Better make sure your doctor has admitting privileges at Baylor. And we will have to do an ultrasound of your lip ahead of time, just to be on the safe side. Do you live out in West Texas in a rural area where the closest hospital is 150 miles away? Well, I’m sorry, but your infected hangnail can’t be treated at this clinic because we don’t meet the regulations. It’s for your safety, you understand.

This lack of logic and consistency in Texas law is ultimately what will bring down the tightened abortion-facility regulations in federal court. When you drill down to the real reasons behind the regulations, it’s not for the safety of the women undergoing the procedure. Because if safety were the issue, there would be no reason to limit those regulations only to this single, specific procedure at a single, specific type of clinic. The real reason for the regulations is to deny access to abortion services. And the last time I checked, the Supreme Court still regards access to abortions as a constitutional right.

Don't forget Rick Perry's sister's connection to ambulatory surgical centers.

Rick Perry prosecutor hires Austin lawyer to join him

A Travis County grand jury in August indicted Perry on felony charges of coercion of a public servant and abuse of official capacity, both felonies for which he faces up to 109 years behind bars.

The indictment stems from Perry’s threat in June 2013 to Travis County District Attorney Rosemary Lehmberg that he would veto $7.5 million in funding to her office if she didn’t step down following her drunken driving arrest. The money was appropriated for Lehmberg’s Public Integrity Unit, which investigates ethics complaints against state officials.

Podcast from Craig McDonald of TPJ - 

Addressing charges that the indictment is a direct attack on Perry’s constitutional veto powers, McDonald says it was never about the veto per se. “We actually filed our complaint prior to his vetoing [funding for] the Public Integrity Unit.” “It was about coercion and abuse of power,” he says. It was about Perry “holding the veto over [Austin DA] Rosemary Lehmberg’s head if she didn’t step down.”

Fact Checking Rick Perry's Spin Machine.

Hahah! Perry says that Texas *adequately* funded schools on my watch-maybe he's using the dictionary definition "barely sufficient" The judge that recently said Texas educational system is unconstitutional would not agree with Oops.
