Response to Coyotl (Original post)

45. Burnt Orange Report (Liberal Texas Blog)

The first session ended with the now-famous filibuster by State Senator Wendy Davis, who read testimonies cut off by Cook and others submitted via email and engaged in debate with her colleagues on the Senate floor for over 11 hours, until she was silenced by Republican points of order. Her Democratic colleagues debated those points of order until with less than 15 minutes to go, the Senate Gallery erupted into shouts and screams against the bill and the gross abuse of Senate rules that was facilitating its passage. The clock ran out on the special session, and after it was ascertained that the bill did not pass, Perry called everyone back to do it again.

So that's where we are: back for a second special session to pass unwanted abortion restrictions that a galvanizing citizen-led effort helped shut down the first time.

This page will serve as BOR's information hub over the next few weeks, centralizing our coverage of the session and ongoing efforts to chronicle the Texas war on women. Below, check out all of our coverage to date, follow along with our live-blogs, and keep your eyes on us as we keep our eyes on Texas politics.
