TX Senate Has Passed Bill Banning Abort!ons After 20 Weeks Amid Protests With Urine and Feces

There has been a lot of tension in the air with regards to women’s rights; specifically their rights to make their own decisions about their bodies. While a huge part of Obama’s 2012 campaign was women’s rights and he got a lot of support from women’s groups, there was still a lot of push back from those who do not believe that women’s rights apply when it comes to abort!on.

The state of Texas has been drawing a lot of attention because of their push to ban abort!on and they have just had a major success in their efforts.

The Texas Senate has passed a controversial bill that prohibits abortions after 20 weeks of pregnancy and will force all but five of the state’s abortion clinics to close.

The bill was passed in a vote of 19-11.

Protesters on both sides of the issue took over the Texas capitol Friday because of the abortion bill.

The Texas Senate passed sweeping new abortion restrictions late Friday, sending them to Republican Gov. Rick Perry to sign into law after weeks of protests and rallies that drew thousands of people to the Capitol and made the state the focus of the national abortion debate.

Republicans used their large majority in the Texas Legislature to pass the bill nearly three weeks after a filibuster by Democratic Sen. Wendy Davis and an outburst by abortion-rights activists in the Senate gallery disrupted a deadline vote June 25.

Called back for a new special session by Perry, lawmakers took up the bill again as thousands of supporters and opponents held rallies and jammed the Capitol to testify at public hearings. As the Senate took its final vote, protesters in the hallway outside the chamber chanted, “Shame! Shame! Shame!”

Democrats have called the GOP proposal unnecessary and unconstitutional. Republicans said the measure was about protecting women and unborn children.

The Senate’s debate took place between a packed gallery of demonstrators, with anti-abortion activists wearing blue and abortion-rights supporters wearing orange. Security was tight, and state troopers reported confiscating bottles of urine and feces as they worked to prevent another attempt to stop the Republican majority from passing the proposal.

    I think this is a fair compromise!! Because after 20 weeks the child has evrything and can live outside the womb with new modern technology items.. A women has 20 weeks to.decide (4months) if you can't make up your mind by then well just have the child and place for adoption!.. This should force more women to have protected sex and guard your body more carefully!!!

  2. Leave it to a group of old ugly White men and a few terribly ugly White women to decide what other women can do with their bodies. White men just enjoy being in power over any and everyone. They want to be God so bad but that’s ok because a day of reckoning is coming for them. Then they will truly know who the boss is! If the rules don’t fit, just leave the state and have what you want done somewhere else and then go back home.

    • There are more Veterinarians than Women’s Health Clinics in America. And in Texas there will only be 5 Health Clinics in that huge state,, meaning more suffering and deaths for women in rural areas.

  3. “More Religious and Devout Young Women Have Abortions”
    http:***
    Before we know it, we’ll end up like Romania where our new Plan Parenthood dictates every aspect of a woman’s reproductive system like that of chickens & cows.

    Overplanned Parenthood:
    Ceausescu’s cruel law
    http***
    “a plan to increase Romania’s population from 23 million to 30 million by the year 2000. He began his campaign in 1966 with a decree that virtually made pregnancy a state policy. “The fetus is the property of the entire society,” Ceausescu proclaimed. “Anyone who avoids having children is a deserter who abandons the laws of national continuity.”

  4. Women want to have their cake and eat it too. Use birth control, and take steps to avoid pregnancy if you do not wish to have a child.

    • It’ll be KNEE GROWS eating that welfare cake, WHITE WOMEN will still get their ABORTIONS like Evolved Females do ALL OVER THE Civilized World. You see,, WHITES think God created them and Blacks have to be treated like child bearing SLAVES (or Livestock) since they came from monkeys.

  5. And guess what happens to lil knee grow babies that grow up without education and fathers?? After they infect more black females & males with AIDs,, they kill another Brotha or 2,, then they become $LAVE$ for the $tate Penitentiary or $erves for his Master in war games. THATS IT!!!

    All that $$$ goes to VIAGRA gulping white men that made ABORTION illegal again for people they can ENSLAVE the quickest, thank the BlueEye Blonde Lord!!

    I am pro-choice but is 20 weeks considered too restrictive? What was the law before? Women are seriously having abortions after 5 months? I would think the cut-off should be around 3 months – why would it take that long to decide if you want the baby or not? I am confused as to the uproar about this.

  7. People need to wake up what is killing off our black youth is black on black crime and may I add “Planned Murderers in the Hood” better known as Planned Parenthood, they have kept the black population to a 12-13% population in the guise of helping “poor black young girls” well I know a 50 cent condom is much cheaper and safer than an abortion where the pregnant female hires a “paid hit man” an assasin to kill her baby and they call it a “woman’s right there should be a before thought of protection before they need the morning after pill paid for by tax payers that did not have an opportunity to ingage in the sex act. this is not a woman’s right this is a murderous act an may I say there will be some of the women that will meet the aborted child face to face in the kingdom of God.
