Democrats Ready To Filibuster Bill With Stricter Abortion Restrictions
Senator Wendy Davis, a Fort Worth Democrat, says she’s prepared to filibuster to block new restrictions on abortion.
Early this morning the House passed a bill that would ban abortions after the 20th week of pregnancy.
Senate Republicans who favor the restrictions were unable to suspend the rules to vote on the restrictions this afternoon.
That puts the Republicans in a race against the clock to pass the restrictions before the special session ends tomorrow at midnight.
The Senate takes up the contentious abortion issue again at 7:00 tonight.
