Today a very dedicated woman stood on the floor of the Texas Senate and fought for a woman’s right to choose. Wendy Davis, a Democratic senator, undertook a mammoth task – to speak for thirteen hours in order to prevent the Republican majority from passing a bill that would severely limit access to abortion for Texan women.
I have nothing much to say about this that won’t be covered by myriad bloggers over the next couple of days, but I wanted to say that this woman and those that continued the fight when she was silenced have my highest respect. She very literally stood up for a woman’s right to choose. What she did to help the women of Texas is truly impressive.
