No tampons will be allowed in the Texas Senate Gallery during abortion debate.
"...And while women in the crowd may have differing opinions, none of them have any tampons. Or feminine pads or tissues. Or condoms. Fearing that such intimate items could become missiles flung at the heads of policymakers by abortion-rights advocates, state troopers are confiscating such female necessities from attendees."
God bless Texas.
"Texas legislators overturned a temporary victory by state Democrats and standard bearer Sen. Wendy Davis, passing a bill late Friday that puts new restrictions on abortion procedures.
The bill passed the Republican-controlled Senate just before midnight, two weeks after the Legislature failed to put the restrictions to a successful vote in its first special session. The bill would ban most abortions past 20 weeks of pregnancy, place new requirements on which facilities could perform the procedures and limit a woman’s ability to induce an abortion by taking a pill."
