When we conservatives hear the word Texas, we tip our imaginary cowboy hats at nothin’ and let an easy smile creep up. Don’t we just get all warm and fuzzy? Texans are our people. Texas is the same state that had a White House petition going last year, requesting to secede from the United States based on Constitutional violations by the Obama administration. Mmm.

There are currently 12 states that have the 20 week abortion ban.
