I believe that every Republican should be forced to read Jennifer Floyd Engel’s article (See: “Standing with Wendy and staying Republican”). It is well-reasoned and points out fallacious political ideology.

Like her parents, I’m one of those “crazy idealistic liberals” and always believed in the right of a woman to make decisions regarding her body and her future. The R’s willingness to pass legislation that seriously restricts that right, yet refusal to pass legislation that deals with the potential consequences of that restriction, is hypocrisy.

Given that Gov. Perry refused to sign legislation to ban texting while driving because it controlled personal behavior, why did he happily sign this bill?

Am I missing something?
