[JURIST] Texas Governor Rick Perry [official website] signed a bill Sunday [press release] requiring parental consent to abortions for girls under the age of 18 and tighter restrictions on abortions for women who are more than 26 weeks pregnant. Before a crowd of 1,000 supporters in a high school gym at a Fort Worth evangelical Christian school [school website], Perry also gave ceremonial endorsement to a legislatively-endorsed resolution [JURIST report] to amend the Texas constitution to ban same-sex marriage in the state. Texas voters will decide the issue in a vote in November. About 350 demonstrators were also on hand, many to protest the measure to ban same-sex marriage. AP has more.
