To the Editor,

As children, we’re taught that cheating is against the rules, plain and simple. As adults, many of us work to instill this value in children. We want them to play fair, and follow the rules even if it doesn’t go their way. As the old adage goes, “Cheaters never win.”

Gov. Perry, Lt. Gov. Dewhurst and their allies in the legislature must have missed this lesson. And Texas women could pay the price. Perry and Dewhurst have resorted to cheating and deception to push their abortion bill that will hurt the health of many women across the state.

We demand that Governor Perry and Lt. Gov. Dewhurst stop changing the rules.

Cheating is no way to make laws for Texas. If the governor and his allies can’t pass a law fairly under the rules, we can’t let them cheat their way to victory. Here in Texas, cheaters never win.
