Posted on 07/02/2013 7:50:09 AM PDT by SeekAndFind
Republicans in the Texas legislature will try once again to pass sweeping abortion restrictions as they gather Monday for a 30-day special session. And this time, it just might work.
A spokesman for Democratic state Sen. Wendy Davis, who stood and spoke for more than 12 hours to help kill the bill last week, says she won't filibuster the legislation a second time.
"You can't have a 30-day filibuster," says spokesman Rick Svatora. "The point is [Republicans] mismanaged things so badly the first time around it allowed a filibuster to occur. The Lt. Gov. [David Dewhurst] has pledged he won't allow that to happen this time around."
Speaking at the National Right to Life convention this weekend, Dewhurst, R-Texas, said: "I am not discouraged. We will pass this bill out of the legislature." That doesn't mean the bill will pass without a fight.
Republicans were unable to pass the measures last week in large part because of Davis's filibuster, but also because hundreds of protesters crowded the Texas Capitol just before the midnight deadline and cheered to the point where senators on the floor could not hear over the noise.

Fighting for the right to wring the heads off babies. What courage!
My sister, who is trapped in Sheila Jackson Lee's district, said the silver lining from this fiasco is that RINO Dewhurst may have sent what little is left of his political career down the johnny-flusher.
Do other Texans feel the same way?
She probably still has a rash from the Depends.
I’m trapped in this abortionist’s district, and I’m going to work my butt off to get her canned next year.

A fellow right-wing wag has suggested to me that we start referring to her as a Peebagger.
The story was that she had a catheter inserted. It would have been attached to a bag which collected the urine, with the bag being secured to one of her legs. (Don’t ask me how I would know such a detail.) It would have been easily concealed by a dress. It enabled her to filibuster and pee to her hearts content - er - her bladder’s content.
Texas Sen. Wendy Davis dons urinary catheter for 11-hour abortion filibuster
"We must not allow the other side to remove from our health providers the ability to serve our needs in substandard front alley clinics!
Oh yeah, and don't forget to vote for me when I run for governor."
Since ‘ol’ Wendy dear” wore a Depends and, as reported, “a catheter”, for ‘the Cause’, there is no show-stopping, stupendous, and outlandish thing she could do, to degrade herself more fully, for her next appearance.
For the record:
I do not, have not, and will not, support the harming of life in the womb.
Dewberry AND Straus look like idiots on this. Straus for not passing this in the House, after it passed in the Senate (he and Boehner are competing for most dubious Speaker) and, Dewie for holding it til the end of the session.
I’m pretty sure that if Wendy Davis weighed about 20 or 30 pounds more than she does she in no way would be receiving all this adulation. People are so superficial and they are consequently easily bamboozled.
In my opinion, yes, as evidenced by Ted Cruz representing our state in DC.
