AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — Texas Gov. Rick Perry signed sweeping new abortion restrictions on Thursday that could shutter most of the state’s clinics that provide the procedure, a final step for the Republican-backed measure that has caused weeks of sometimes raucous protests at the Capitol.

Supporters credited God’s will and prayer as the governor signed the legislation, with protesters’ chants of “Shame! Shame! Shame!” echoing into the Capitol auditorium from the hallway. Opponents have vowed to fight the law, though no court challenges were immediately filed.
