    And we are still fighting to maintain our federal right to safe abortion. It’s such a shame and women everywhere need to be aware of what is going on in their home states so they can make an informed decision come election time. Such is the case currently in Texas where Gov. Rick Perry has publicly declared his intention to limit abortion access severely in his end-game goal of eliminating it altogether. I’ve reported on these facts in my article on Examiner (http://www.examiner.com/article/rick-perry-s-agenda-to-shrink-women-s-rights). We cannot relax our guard. It’s time for women in red states to speak out by contacting their state representatives and just saying “NO” to anti-abortion legislation.
