FORT WORTH, Texas -- In a ceremony filled with religious references, Gov. Rick Perry signed a bill at a church school gymnasium Sunday that imposes more limits on late-term abortions and requires minor girls to get written parental consent for abortions.
"And it has been a tragedy of unspeakable consequences that for decades activist courts denied many Texas parents their right to be involved in one of the most important decisions their young daughter could ever make -- whether to end the life that was growing inside her," Perry told a crowd of about 1,000 people gathered at the Calvary Christian Academy. "For too long, a blind eye has been turned to the rights of our most vulnerable human beings -- that's the unborn in our society."

During the 1 1/2-hour program, Perry also signed a resolution to amend the Texas Constitution by banning same-sex marriages.

Even though this bill is not yet law and will need to be voted on by the Texas voters, why would a government official ignore protocol?
What happened to the separation of church and state? It would seem that Governor Perry is attempting to polarize various religious sects by this performance.
As most objectors top this bill are those of faith, why would he sign a bill like this in a place of worship. Is this a “thumbing of his nose” to those of faith?
I personally am against abortions for the most part. Abortions should only be allowed in such cases as rape, or when the woman’s health would be endangered.

I have to say that since the "original sin" women's uterus has been the condemnation of woman in this world of, politics, relgion and lies.

Get ready ladies, our sexual and reproductive organs will be The Property Of the Federal government and regulated by the individual states.

It's not so much the federal goverment I'm worried about, it's the state goverments I don't trust. Not to stereotype but doesn't it seem like all the seperation of church and state violations come out of Texas these days? I'm not really an abortion supporter but this is just nuts, add in doing this in a church too. I think it's obvious that the churches are gaining far too much power these days.

Actually CyberDude, this would be against religion as christians as a whole, are against abortion. The signing of the bill in a church as basically sayng to Heck with the church.

Actually this bill is anti abortion. By putting limits on abortion they're getting one step closer to completly outlawing it. I'm somewhat anti-abortionist (not because of the churches in anyway), but I think that by signing this stuff in a church is showing how much influence they have.

Not the way I read it. It is more pro religion then against, since it tightens the rules on aboortion. Roe v Wade made abortion legal yet they are now putting more controls at the state level. And let us not forget the other bill that he signed during the same session which was anti Gay legislation which again supports the majority feelings of most churches.

I agree, signing in the church is showing the rest of the states that religion is in charge and very much dictating policies in the state government.

Kind of risky to me but it should be a warning to the rest of American as how things are to be conducted in our nation.
