Wendy Davis describes Texas filibuster

Texas state Senator Wendy Davis spent 13 hours on her feet at the Texas Capitol during a filibuster of an abortion bill that would have greatly restricted abortions in the state.

"It was an amazing moment for democracy in Texas," Senator Davis said on AC360. The large number of growing supporters inside the capitol gave her a push of energy.

She told Anderson, "I underestimated how difficult it would be both physically and mentally. About two hours in, I realized I was in for a long day, my back started hurting pretty early on and began to really hurt as the hours ticked by."

On Wednesday Texas Governor Rick Perry vowed to try again. The governor will convene the Texas Legislature on July 1 for a special session to take up the abortion bill. FULL POST
