Texas State Senator Wendy Davis and a screaming mob of protesters may have successfully prevented a full vote on S.B. 5 last night, but Governor Rick Perry is not deterred. He has called another special legislative session for July 1 to give lawmakers another shot at defending the unborn:
From his office’s official statement:
“I am calling the Legislature back into session because too much important work remains undone for the people of Texas. Through their duly elected representatives, the citizens of our state have made crystal clear their priorities for our great state. Texans value life and want to protect women and the unborn. Texans want a transportation system that keeps them moving. Texans want a court system that is fair and just. We will not allow the breakdown of decorum and decency to prevent us from doing what the people of this state hired us to do.
The haters are already out in full force:
But ultimately, all the bile they spew is in the name of an unjust cause. Life is sacred, and we will never stop fighting for the unborn:
Thank you, Governor.
