By now Senator Wendy Davis' name has ricocheted from coast to coast and is becoming a household name, but the MSM reporting left a huge part of the story out... She didn't do this alone! Texas Democrats, men and women turned out to support her by the thousands!
More than just turning out... those demonstrators actually saved the day and carried Wendy across the finish line. The bill would not have been stopped without them!
Rachel Maddow did an outstanding report last night and explained what happened and showed the footage that tells the whole story and how the people of Texas played a significant role in the victory:
Additionally she did a follow up interview with Cecille Richards of Planned Parenthood who was there and it shows more footage of the massive crowds that turned out to support Senator Davis:
The Teabagger Talibaptist that created this monstrosity of a bill got into office by and large in the 2010 election because progressives and independents didn't turn out.
The battle for women's healthcare rights, for equal rights for the LGBT community, and voting rights for us all will be fought at the state level. All politics are local as the saying goes and we can not... must not forget this1
If progressives and independents don't turn out in 2014 to vote against the baggers in the state elections... you can kiss equal rights and women's rights and voter rights good bye.
