This is an incredible video that they made over at HuffPo, and it REALLY shows just how heroic State Senator Wendy Davis was, and I found it very inspiring. And the brutality that the protesters endured in the attempt to have their voices heard.
This is the kind of leadership that we need in the Democratic party, and this is the kind of dedication that it takes to hold the Republicans at bay.
There is of course every chance that this law will still pass, but Wendy Davis has opened the eyes of the women of Texas and re-energized those who perhaps felt they could not stand against the Republican juggernaut in that state.
Winning a battle does not win a war, but if women want to maintain control over their own reproductive organs they need to start turning out to fight every bill that would turn them back into breeders and strip them of their right to control their own destinies.
