Politics Breaking News: Republican Governor Perry Defends Texas Abortion Measure
Governor Rick Perry defended a measure passed by the Texas legislature to ban most abortions after 20 weeks of pregnancy, saying states - not the federal government - should decide such matters and rejecting criticism that the law would shut down most of the state's abortion clinics. President Barack Obama stepped into the fray in the U.S. Congress over immigration, urging Americans to press the Republican-led House of Representatives to approve a plan that is at risk of stalling. The U.S. Justice Department is to revise its policies for dealing with news reporters during the course of leak investigations following recent criticism from media organizations, a department official said on Friday.
