WASHINGTON — The Texas legislature is reconsidering a pro-life bill that was stalled by Texas Democrat state senator Wendy Davis.
Reuters reports that Texas Governor Rick Perry called a special legislative session so the state could pass a ban on abortions after 20 weeks of pregnancy and put into place safer medical standards for abortion clinics to follow.
Wendy Davis rose to heroine status among abortion activists and Democrats over her filibuster over the pro-life bill. Most of the liberal media praised Davis and focused on how she wore pink tennis shoes during her filibuster.
It looks like the measure will pass, as an overwhelming majority of Texans support this measure at 62%. Most Americans are against abortions in the second and third trimester of pregnancy at 27% and 14% approval respectively.
