  •  I don't dare believe it is true. I certainly hope (7+ / 0-)

    it is after this heroic performance by Wendy Davis.  The rest of the Dems and the gallery had her back.

    I hope it is true and that no further Republican maneuvering can revive it.

    Will Perry call another special session just for the abortion bill? Or do they see the writing on the wall?

    •  Other bills as well (5+ / 0-)

      Transportation & education bills were also left unfinished. Probably to have more cover for calling another special session. However the dust clears in the morning, it ain't over by a long shot.

        We don't have time (or funding) for that in Texas, Gov. Good hair and the GOP Lege tell us.  But plenty of time and imposed funding to screw with women's health.

        Further rounds to come, no doubt.  Hide and watch.

        On second thought, don't hide, but come watch the Texas Lege do its work, and make it public and transparent for all to see. The cowards can't keep it up for long when the people are watching.
