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.
