Beto O’Rourke calls on people to understand “true cost” of Texas’ abortion ban with no rape or incest exceptions.

We all need to understand what the true cost of this decision is. This decision that Greg Abbott made a year ago to sign the most restrictive Abortion law in the country is no exception for rape. No exception for incest. A governor who promised when asked by one of you, what he was going to do about the fact that rape victims were now going to be forced to carry their rapists child and he said, don't worry about it, we will eliminate rape in the state of Texas. More women have been raped in this state than any other state in the Union on On his watch. The ability to bring perpetrators to justice has declined by half on his watch, there are more than 3,000 untested rape, kits at DPS Headquarters in Austin on his watch right now. The only way through this is to defeat him but also to understand who is bearing the brunt of this attack on the women here in Texas.
