State Rep. Mary Gonzales (D-Clint) says an abortion is safer than a vasectomy. Is that a fact? Gardner Selby of the Politifact Texas fact-checking team has the answer.

In opposing a measure that would require hospitals to file reports with the state on complications associated with abortions, Gonzales made the claim that an abortion procedure is safer than a vasectomy, while questioning the bill’s author, Rep. Giovanni Capriglione (R-Southlake) on the House floor.
