VT: Rape is common in Texas, like oil or cockroaches.  Abbott has always been “soft” on rape, even child rape.  As Texas Attorney General, Abbott blocked rape arrests, gutted investigative units and opposed all efforts to protect children and the women of Texas from being raped or trafficked by cults like St. Hubertus and others run by big oil and the GOP’s bankster elites.

Raw Story: Fox News host Chris Wallace on Sunday grilled Texas Gov. Greg Abbott (R) about his promise to end rape in the state instead of giving abortion rights to victims of rape and incest.

Abbott recently made the promise to end rape after his state passed a law to ban all abortions after six weeks of pregnancy.

“In 2019, which is the last year that we have numbers for, almost 15,000 cases of rape were reported in your state of Texas,” Wallace told Abbott. “And almost everyone says that’s a severe undercount. There are a lot more cases that just aren’t reported.”

“Is it reasonable to say to somebody who is the victim of rape and might not understand that they are pregnant until six weeks, ‘Well, don’t worry about it because we’re going to eliminate rape as a problem in the state of Texas,'” the Fox News host asked.

“Survivors of sexual assault, they deserve support,” Abbott replied, skirting the question. “Texas is stepping up to make sure we provide that by signing a law and creating in the governor’s office a sexual assault survivors task force.”

“Governor, excuse me,” Wallace interrupted. “There were more than 15,000 rapes in 2019 when you were governor.”

The Fox News host went on to ask Abbott if he would sign a law allowing abortion in cases of rape.

“Will you sign it or not?” Wallace wondered.

“We’ve got to go back to the reason the law was passed in the first place,” Abbott said of abortion. “The goal is to protect the lives of every child with a heartbeat.”

“Including the child of a rape?” Wallace said.  Read more..

  1. I would definitely rank Texas as the least safe state. This has been known pretty much since it became a state. The goat ropers there, are very confused about manhood or human decency.
    Ask Sandra Bland, and thousands of others.
    The oil industry and white supremacist military there, are known for violent sexual tendencies. I fully support Texas secession and removal of our military bases. It has been a power center to no good end for far too long. Nasty. They have too much influence on textbooks also.
