This afternoon, the Texas State Senate is debating House Bill 2, a hugely restrictive anti-abortion bill that would ban late-term abortions. A vote may take place tonight, so the capital gallery is currently at full-capacity. Meanwhile, state troopers have been searching through bags to confiscate tampons, feminine pads, and tissues before spectators have been allowed inside:
I just asked DPS myself: NO TAMPONS OR MAXI PADS IN GALLERY. "Nothing that can be thrown at Senators" #HB2— Jessica W. Luther (@scATX) July 12, 2013
I also do not advise bringing children to the Capitol tomorrow. Proaborts are looking for trouble.— Abby Johnson (@AbbyJohnson) July 12, 2013
There was also a rumor that "proaborts" were planning to flash their "lady parts" in the senate gallery. So far, vaginas have not been confiscated. Don't worry, there's still time.
