The originally scheduled vote on Texas’ ban on most abortions after 20 weeks was delayed after Sen. Wendy Davis’ 11-hour filibuster devolved into a midnight scream-fest. The Texas legislature was reconvened for a special session, and the state Senate closed in on another vote tonight. After 19 proposed amendments to the legislation were voted down and senators prepared for a final vote, pro-abortion protesters began chaining themselves to a railing in the gallery.
