Ben Philpott was interviewed by phone about the special session of the Texas Legislature in which state Senator Wendy Davis (D-Fort Worth) filibustered for 11 hours to block a Republican anti-abortion bill. The legislation would have restricted abortions past 20 weeks illegal and put in place other regulations that would have shut down most abortion clinics in the state. The bill did not ultimately pass, but Governor Rick Perry called another session, and the bill was expected to pass.

A clip of Ms. Davis' appearance on “Meet the Press” was shown. close
