The reality of this bill is not to make women safer … it’s to force the closure of facilities across the state of Texas that would provide proper care to women. Partisanship and ambition are not unusual in a state capitol … (but) right here, in Texas, right now, it has risen to a level of profound irresponsibility and the raw abuse of power. The actions intended by our state’s leaders hurt Texas; they hurt Texas women and their families.

- Texas State Sen. Wendy Davis, on “a GOP-led effort that would effectively close most abortion clinics across the nation’s second most-populous state”

GO, WENDY, GO! ♥

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.

GET IT, GIRL.
