Into the wee hours of Wednesday morning, June 26th, we watched as Texas Senators Wendy Davis, Leticia R. Van de Putte, state Representatives Senfronia Thompson and Jessica Farrar rallied young people, women and activists from across Texas in the face of one of the worst anti-choice bills ever proposed.
A story like Wendy’s 11-hour filibuster is, in a word, invigorating. The sea of orange shirts rallying around our advocates and filling the halls of the capitol in Austin is a beacon of strength to those of us who live fearing that we’re just a few steps from returning to the back allies and the days before Roe.
