About a week after State Rep. Wendy Davis filibustered for 13 hours and the people helped stop more Anti-abottion legislation, Governor Rick Perry called another special session. He is determined in his Pro-Life opinion to stop women from having abortions. He spoke about Texas appreciating the sanctity of life right around the same time Texas killed its 500th person with the death penalty.
Texas is again doing away with the 2/3s majority vote in an attempt to undermine Democrats. He and his Republican cohorts are determined not to lose again. They are pulling out all of the stops. This special session will be a month long and they are starting on HB2 immeadiately. They also need to get it done beford midnight regardless of the number of speakers. The room it is being held in is not large enough for a of the lawmakers and citizens. These are some of the Democrats concerns.
It seems that Governor Perry does not care about the will of the people. He continues in his quest to alienate voters through his totalitarian way of running the state. The Filibuster that stopped the original bill is going to be hard to repeat. This has become the Republican partys issuevof choice. They have abandoned creating jobs, helping the economy, in fact doing anything constructive in order to control Womens reproductive rights.
While Republicans spout off about the 2nd Amendment and how their party protects the U.S. Constitution they stomp all over our 1st Amendment rights. In the United States we do not have a State Religion, in fact it is illegal for the government, state, local or federal to force religious beliefs on anyone. The Texas Governor is guilty of this as well as the whole Republican party. Apparently they misinterpreted tg e Constitution.
