Gov. Abbott to Rethink Abortion Law After Finding Out Texas Has Fallen Behind Oklahoma in Per Capita Executions

The lede:

Between 1976 and 2020, the Lone Star State has posted a measly 1.97 executions per 100,000 residents compared to the towering 2.83 executions per 100,000 pace set by the Sooners - a stat called “unacceptable” by Abbott.

Closing the death gap

Our senior hyperlocal correspondent spoke with the Assistant to the Deputy Undersecretary on the Committee for Bodily Autonomy, Austin Spurlock, who told us Abbot is considering not only reversing his decision on legal abortions but also charging unintentionally conceived fetuses with one count of attempted grand larceny for potentially “stealing a pregnant teen’s youth,” one count of smuggling, and one count of illegal entry by “crossing the US border without proper documentation at a designated port of entry” - a combination of offenses, we’re told, will soon be punishable by death.

How far is he willing to go?

Spurlock told us Abbott is willing to carry the policy all the way to term as the Committee for Bodily Autonomy is currently recruiting bump-ty hunters who’ll periodically enter Texas’s public middle, high, and post-secondary educational facilities to acquire female urine samples for testing. They’re also in talks to set up what they’re calling the "suction fund" that’ll payout $10,000 to any Texan who turns in a pregnant youth attempting to subvert the authorities by birthing the child.

But wait... there’s more

There are also rumors circulating through the state capitol that Abbott is close to enacting a slate of legislation. The first will make cows legal citizens. Once citizens, they’ll be charged with recklessly polluting the environment and be sentenced to the slaughterhouse. Abbott is also tackling video piracy as those who transmit or otherwise distribute “any use of the broadcast or account of the game without the express written consent of the National Football League” will be punished by firing squad - a move Jerry Jones has called “long overdue.” Lastly, in a move he’s calling a “reach across the aisle,” Abbott has been in contact with Andrew Cuomo to join the Governor as the state's first Secretary of Assisted Living and Elderly Care.
