During the debate about the 20-week late-term abortion ban in Texas, members of the pro-abortion mob made death threats on a number of officials. Now, Texas law enforcement officials are looking into tweets that called for the killing of pro-life elected officials, such as Governor Rick Perry.

From Brietbart:

Two Twitter accounts have had their records subpoenaed by the Texas Department of Public Safety for threats against Texas lawmakers during the recent debate surrounding the state’s new abortion regulations.

Though the reasons for the subpoenas were not specifically mentioned in the documents, a San Antonio, Texas paper retrieved the tweets from both accounts during that time period.

Both Twitter accounts have participated in heavy attacks on Andrew Breitbart and Breitbart News contributors in the past.

One Twitter account is anonymous, but the other, @DeniseRomano, is tied to a woman by the same name in Austin, Texas. The anonymous account, @PrisonForBush, received attention previously for celebrating the death of Andrew Breitbart

Perry wasn’t the only one facing death threats.  After threatening legislators and their children with rape, abortion activists in Texas made threats against pro-life elected officials.

Katie Pavlich of TownHall noticed the threatening tweet and noted how Lt Governor David Dewhurst has been at the forefront of the push to stop late-term abortions.

From the pro-abortion activist on Twitter:

There were dozens of crazy antics in the weeks leading up to passage and signing of the abortion ban.

A pro-abortion activist had to be removed from a hearing and another read a disgusting poem to legislators equating her vagina to a gun.

The protesters at the Texas capitol exploited children by making them hold signs supporting their protest against a ban on late-term abortions. And the Internet was abuzz with shock and disgust over another sign, along with a video showing abortion activists chanting Hail Satan.

Meanwhile, a little girl is shown in a picture along with pro-abortion protestors holding a sign saying, “If I wanted the government in my womb, I’d f— a senator.”
