Former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum (left) talks with Texas state Sen. John Whitmire, Houston Democrat, in the Senate Chambers in Austin on July 11, 2013. A Senate committee pushed through new abortion restrictions, setting up a Senate vote before the weekend to send it to Gov. Rick Perry. The bill would require doctors to have admitting privileges at nearby hospitals, only allow abortions in surgical centers, dictate when abortion pills are taken and ban abortions after 20 weeks.
