Pro-abortion thugs in Texas planned to attack legislators with urine and feces

The UK Daily Mail reports.

Excerpt:

The Texas Senate has given its initial approval for sweeping abortion restrictions late on Friday, sending them to Republican Governor Rick Perry to sign into law after weeks of protests and rallies that drew thousands of people to the Capitol and made the state the focus of the national abortion debate.

Republicans used their large majority in the Texas Legislature to pass the Bill nearly three weeks after a filibuster by Democratic Senator Wendy Davis and an outburst by abortion-rights activists in the Senate gallery disrupted a deadline vote on June 25.

As protesters came to the Capitol building in Austin on Friday, bottles of urine and feces, and even tampons were confiscated by state troopers as they tried to prevent anything from disrupting the debate.

[...]Those attending the debate were searched, and any item that could potentially be thrown from the gallery, including tampons, were confiscated, according to the Washington Post.

A senator later stopped security officials confiscating tampons, calling the move ‘bone headed’.

However, Texas Department of Public Safety officers were reported to have found one jar suspected to contain urine, 18 jars suspected of holding feces and three jars suspected to contain paint.

Four women who tried to chain themselves to a railing in the gallery were also arrested and a ten-minute break had to be called when another woman managed to chain herself to the railing.

The Senate’s leader, Lieutenant Governor David Dewhurst told officers to remove a group of protesters who started chanting ‘Give choice a chance’ as the debate resumed.

Outside the chamber, the crowd grew so loud that troopers were being issued earplugs, as protesters shouted ‘Shame! Shame! Shame!’ as senators gave their closing statements.

A recent poll found that the bill has the support of the American public.

Excerpt:

Most Americans would favor sweeping new national restrictions on abortion after the 20th week of pregnancy, according to a new HuffPost/YouGov poll. But the poll also shows many Americans remain conflicted in their views on abortion.

By a margin of 59 percent to 30 percent, respondents to the new poll said they would favor a federal law banning abortion after 20 weeks of pregnancy.

And that’s exactly what the Texas law does.

Isn’t it amazing that pro-abortion activists would be against such a common-sense bill restricting abortions on viable unborn children? (And chant “Hail, Satan” in order to disrupt legislators!)

    Here is a response to one man who was opposed to the new bill. I was amazed that he actually said some of this out loud.

    • So that guy thinks that a primary reason to support abortion is that not letting women have abortions will cause them to not have recreational sex with men. I’m speechless. Why would any woman in her right mind even speak to a man like that, much less have SEX with him? I don’t understand.

        Honestly. There was one comment after that post about “empowered women” getting abortions. Wrong. Empowered women know they are worth more than a fling.

        And the author of “Bro-Life” understands the real impact of limiting abortion-on-demand. “…don’t be surprised if casual sex outside of relationships becomes far more difficult to come by.” Exactly, Mr Hookup.
