Left Side of the Aisle #117 - Part 7

Update: Texas passes new abortion restrictions

A couple of weeks ago, I gave a Hero Award to Texas state Senator Wendy Davis for her 11-hour filibuster of a special legislative session that prevented passage of new, more severe, restrictions on abortion in the state, including banning abortions after 20 weeks and imposing new requirements that would force most abortion clinics in the state to close down.

I also noted that Gov. Rick "Oops" Perry had already said he was going to call another special session to ram through his bill.

Well, he did, and despite the best efforts of opponents, opponents that, significantly but unimportantly to the wackos, included the Texas Medical Association, the Texas Hospital Association, and the American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology, that bill has passed.
