A Look at the Fucking Ridiculousness of the Texas Abortion Debate

Big day! 

Wendy Davis had to filibuster all day and night in order to defend a woman's right to safe and legal health care. It was fucking ridiculous that her efforts were derailed because of a back brace. It was fucking ridiculous that women had to scream, scream, scream to be heard. “At what point must a female Senator raise her hand or her voice to be recognized over the male colleagues in the room?” was one of the best quotes of the night. ("Let's protect women's sacred wombs, but GOD FORBID they ever try to make their own decisions or speak or take care of their spine.")

Hi,

Did you hear about what happened in Texas last night? State Senator Wendy Davis launched a nearly 12-hour filibuster to block Republicans' extreme anti-abortion bill that would impact millions of women. The rules dictated that she couldn't break for food or water, she couldn't sit or lean on her desk the entire time, she couldn't even use the bathroom--but she succeeded! The bill has been tabled for now. She stood up for women in Texas and everywhere and she won.

This woman has some serious ovaries. I just signed a thank you card, will you join me?

Kill the bill Wendy Davis.
