Texas senator filibusters against abortion bill
Sen. Wendy Davis of Fort Worth began the filibuster at 11:18 a.m. CDT Tuesday. In order to derail a vote in the GOP-dominated Senate, she must keep speaking on the bill until midnight - the deadline for the end of the 30-day special session.

Wanna bet these two things won't happen:(a) Governor Rick Perry will soon call a second special session, in which (b) SB 5 will pass easily?
It's understandable that pro-aborts are quaking in their Birkenstocks and gnashing their teeth over SB5, which assures that these publicly supported constraints on abortuaries will be enacted:
** Increase abortion facility safety standards to the level of ambulatory surgical centers to shut down Gosnell-like abortion providers in Texas,
** Require the 18,000 RU-486 abortions performed each year be done according to FDA safety standards,
** Require physicians who perform abortions to be qualified to treat life-threatening complications after botched abortions and have privileges at a local hospital, and
** Ban abortions on unborn children beginning at 20 weeks after fertilization, when scientific evidence clearly shows babies can feel pain.
