Texas Anti-Abortion Bill Shot Down After Marathon Filibuster Falls Short!

Filed under: Legal MattersPolitik

wendy davis filibuster falls short but texas anti abortion bill shot down

A bill that would have put heavy restrictions on abortions in the state of Texas was declared dead early this morning, but it wasn't without its fair share of drama!

Senator Wendy Davis was at the center of it all yesterday when she attempted a 13-hour filibuster to block any voting on the bill. However, her effort fell three hours short after she was given third strike for violating rules when it was determined she had gone off topic!

A packed gallery full of protestors broke into boos chants of "Shame! Shame! Shame!" as the people took over where Wendy left off, and the room erupted into applause when the clock struck midnight and it looked as though the bill was officially dead!

See the controversial and INSANE final 10 minutes of the special session AFTER THE JUMP!!!
