Texas Governor Rick Perry thinks Joan Rivers might still be alive if his controversial anti-abortion law was in effect in New York. The law requires clinics to meet hospital-level operating standards. It became law last year, but a judge recently put it on ice.

Perry was speaking at an event Sunday and randomly brought up Rivers, wondering if she would still be alive if Yorkville Endoscopy were subject to the tighter regulations.

We’re pretty sure … Joan would not approve.
