For nearly 13 hours Texas State Senator Wendy Davis stood and spoke in the senate chamber of the Texas house to filibustered a bill that, if passed, would have been the most restrictive of any other anti- abortion bill in the country. Rules of the filibuster state that she was to remain standing, not lean on her desk, or take any breaks - even for meals or bathroom. From 11:18am to 12:00am that night the senator spoke about her stance on abortion and a woman’s right to choose just narrowly defeating the bill after its final vote at 12:02. This one woman both literally and figuratively stood for what she believed in for herself and millions of other women in Texas and prevailed. Someone give her a fucking medal!
