Grassroots Movement Grows To Resist Anti Abortion Bills

A showdown is expected in Texas today after a state senate committee approved a bill critics say would shut down nearly all of the state's abortion clinics and ban abortion at 20 weeks post-fertilization. An earlier attempt to pass the bill was thwarted last month when protesters raised their voices to drown out the proceedings following a nearly 11-hour filibuster by Texas State Senator Wendy Davis. Meanwhile in North Carolina, state house Republicans have advanced anti-choice restrictions by secretly attaching them to a bill on motorcycle safety. On Thursday, the state house voted 74-to-41 to approve the bill, which imposes a series of restrictions critics say are aimed at shutting down abortion clinics.
