HOUSTON, TEXAS – It was nearly one year ago on June 25th that Texas State Sen. Wendy Davis stood on the Senate floor in Texas and filibustered for over 11 hours to fight for late-term abortions (at 5 months). Davis donned a back brace and wore running shoes that have now become famous. Although the President of Planned Parenthood, Cecile Richards, called Davis “a total fighter,” pro-lifers later dubbed her “Abortion Barbie.” Pro-lifers sang “Amazing Grace” while pro-abortion supporters yelled “Hail Satan!” YouTube videos of the frenzied mayhem went viral on the Internet.  The bill required “abortion clinics to meet the same health and safety regulations as an ambulatory surgical center, require[d] a doctor providing abortions to secure admitting privileges at a nearby hospital, and lastly, require[d] a doctor to personally administer the abortion-inducing drugs to the patient.” Texas Governor Rick Perry called a special session of the legislature to allow passage of the law. Lieutenant Governor David Dewhurst was criticized for his handling of Davis and the unruly crowd on the day of the filibuster. Those protesting SB5 in the special session were as unruly as those during Davis’ successful filibuster. SB 5 was signed into law by Governor
