Watch Live: Dem Sen Wendy Davis fighting regressive anti-choice bill in Texas with a filibuster

June 25, 2013

In the Texas Senate, Senator Wendy Davis is in the midst of filibustering SB5, a draconian ant-choice measure. If Davis can keep this up for 13 hours, the bill will die.

Cecile Richards, president of Planned Parenthood Action Fund and daughter of the late former Texas governor Ann Richards said, “When combined in a state 773 miles wide and 790 miles long and with 26 million people, the measures would become the most stringent set of laws to impact the largest number of people in the nation. “If this passes, abortion would be virtually banned in the state of Texas, and many women could be forced to resort to dangerous and unsafe measures.”

      I’m sure he is trying hard to ‘spain how he needs a special cushy chair for his new office in the vagina’s of all women. One that won’t damage his neck when he sits on his head up his ass

        Sooo uncomfortable. I feel much better now that the one Dem supporting this bill just brought his religion into the debate. @ – @

          Texas proves devolution to neanderthal is possible in the 21st century – Wonder if they can make it back to single-celled creatures so we can step on them

            Smart ass, it was a 60 hour snake oil seminar that was rumored not to allow you to leave the room. People were crazy to find “the motorman’s friend” an accessory that riders used when taking long trips.. She could use one.

                So she wouldn’t need a bathroom break. It’s a contraption you wear under your clothes and a collection container straps to your leg.
