texas passes bill to put strict regulations on abortions

The state of Texas has just put the final approval on House Bill 2, which will ban abortions at 20 weeks and put some of the strictest regulations on abortion clinics and facilities in the entire country.

The House voted 98-49 to pass the Bill by a huge margin, and it must be approved once more at a later date to move on to the Senate.

Supporters of the Bill argue that it will help protect women and their unborn children while those opposed to it say it will make it nearly impossible for women to get treatment and force them to seek "black market" alternatives.

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!!!
