The lie perpetuated by most the abortion supporting crowd is that they oppose abortion when the fetus can feel pain. Texas tried to introduce such a law (SB 5) that would ban abortions after 20 weeks. Of course the democrats have claimed its a violation of “womens rights” and are now filibustering the bill. They do just want to kill babies, the “feel pain” myth is now officially busted.
Texas Democrats are attempting to block abortion legislation with a 13 hour filibuster on the state Senate floor.
Mark Jones chairs the political science department at Rice University and says even if Davis is successful with her filibuster, SB 5 may still be resurrected.
“I would fully expect Rick Perry, perhaps as early as tomorrow morning, to call a second special session in which he includes abortion-related legislation as one of the agenda items.”
“Assuming it passes some time in July, it’s going to be held up in the courts. The one component, the fetal pain portion which prohibits abortions after 20 weeks, is something that’s unlikely to be implemented any time in the near future.”
