AUSTIN — While state lawmakers continue to allow child mutilation operations in Texas, the Republican-controlled Texas House of Representatives is now celebrating activists who support those and other barbaric practices.
On Monday, the House voted to sweepingly approve a list of resolutions—a common occurrence in which they congratulate certain Texans for special achievements, memorialize those who’ve passed away, and highlight other noteworthy events.
On Monday’s list, however, several Democrat lawmakers (namely State Reps. Mary Gonzalez, Jessica Gonzalez, Erin Zwiener, and Julie Johnson) inserted nearly two dozen troubling resolutions to applaud individuals who promote abusive sexual behavior, legalization of baby killing, and disfiguring experimentation on children.
For instance, take the resolution for Adri Perez, a policy and advocacy strategist for the American Civil Liberties Union of Texas. Perez “establish[ed] West Fund, the first fund dedicated to providing access to abortions and reproductive choices for residents of West Texas.”
