Rick Perry Suggests Wife Misspoke About Abortion Rights

Texas Gov. Rick Perry (R) on Tuesday seemed to suggest that his wife Anita misspoke when she said abortion “could be a woman’s right,” according to Bloomberg News.

Speaking to reporters at a campaign event for Steve Lonegan, a Republican candidate for U.S. Senate in New Jersey, Perry said “from time to time we’ll stick the wrong word in the wrong place, and you pounce upon it,” as quoted by Bloomberg News.

Texas’ first lady said Saturday at the 2013 Texas Tribune Fest that abortion could be a woman’s right “just like it’s a man’s right if he wants to have some kind of procedure.”

“But I don’t agree with it, and that’s not my view,” she clarified.
