An eyewitness account of SB5 filibuster

Many of you may have heard about SB5, a Texas Senate Bill a pro-life bill that was vehemently opposed by pro-choicers through a filibuster this past Tuesday. This post written by Rita Suva, a friend of mine who was there at the Texas Capitol, explains what SB5 is and her experience of the filibuster crowd that disrupted the vote that night. Governor Rick Perry has called a 2nd special legislative session for July to hopefully take a valid vote and pass this bill.
