Y’all should go fix this.
SIGNAL BOOST THIS SHIT
The anti-abortion bill in Texas is not dead.
That’s not how a filibuster works.
By preventing the final vote on the bill, state Senators Wendy Davis and Leticia Van de Putte forced SB5 to be delayed until the next session of the Texas state legislature. This was expected to be two years from now.
They did not kill the bill. It still has the potential to pass.
To make matters worse, Texas Governor Rick Perry has called a special session beginning July 1st; this means that the legislature is meeting again in less than a week.
SB5 might still become law.
If you still care, spread the word. Sign petitions, email Texas state Senators, organize a local protest even if you don’t live in Texas. Make sure that they’re hearing the voice of the people. Keep the media’s attention on this bill. Put pressure on Texas Republican politicians.
Do research: don’t just wait for more posts to show up on your dashboard. Go forth and Google.
You know who that is?
That’s fucking Senator Wendy Davis (D-TX), who is currently in the middle of filibustering a bill that would effectively close down most abortion clinics in the state of Texas.
The only way to block the bill would be to stall it, and the only way to stall it is to filibuster it.
Which means my girl Wendy has to speak non-stop. Without pausing to eat or go to the bathroom, or leaning on anything. She started at 11:18am CDT today and must go until midnight.
That’s about 13 hours in total.
LIKE. A. BOSS.
GET IT, GIRL.

Hey guys! Today is the last day to vote for Gunnerkrigg Court in this ComicMix contest, and since Tom Siddell is a really nice and talented dude who just made this extremely well-done comic his fulltime job, he could really use the money (which he’s planning on donating anyway) and the exposure this victory would get him. Do your part and help out because it will make me like you a lot, and if you haven’t already, you should actually read this comic from the start - it doesn’t take too long and both the art and plot get exponentially better with time.
