    I thank you though.

    I have been wishing for Texas to go ahead and leave the Union myself, and I've been vocal about it here lately, without realizing what an insult it is to those fighting for their freedom
     (and mine) in that place.

    Based on what Twigg has said here, it appears that the battle for women's rights in Texas is not unlike the battle for the ALAMO. They know they can't win, but they will battle to the last for their freedom, on principal.

    The brutal, despicable, arrogant, illegal behavior of Governor Perry and his Rethuglicans today will be repaid in full down the road.

    In the mean time I am sorry for my lack of sensitivity. Thanks to all who were in that chamber for all those hours to fight for women's freedom. Heroic Texas.  My apologies.

    (I still wish I could transport all the women in that place to someplace that will respect them and value them. Someplace free of religious zealots and misogynists.)
