Gov. Pawlenty issued a proclamation for the month of April as “Abortion Recovery Month.” The proclamation says:
Whereas: Abortion recovery programs help individuals heal by providing counseling, support groups, encouragement; and
Whereas: Abortion Recovery Month encourages and promotes healing opportunities and raises awareness of the aftermath of abortion experienced by individuals and families.
Pawlenty isn’t the only governor to issue a proclamation. Texas Gov. Rick Perry, a Republican, also issued a similar proclamation.
