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.”
Wendy is fighting a draconian bill for us. Sen. Davis announced her plans to filibuster on Twitter yesterday and added, “Stand with me tomorrow, and share your story with me so I can tell it from the Senate floor #SB5 #txlege.”
Use the hashtags: #SB5 and #txlege to give her support.
