Inside the State Capitol of Austin today as the new pro-life bill HB2 was filed in the Texas State House, anti-abortion activists sang “Amazing Grace” to demonstrate their support for the unborn. However, it wasn’t long before abortion proponents began to yell and chant over them, eventually coming up with a rendition of their own. With their matching orange shirts and “Stand With Wendy” signs, the pro-abortion crowd began to sing “Amazing Texas Women” to try and silence the pro-lifers in the rotunda.
In the midst of the sing off, a new Senate version of SB5, the bill which was now famously filibustered and stopped dead by State Senator Wendy Davis, was introduced to the Texas House along with HB2. The Texas legislature will reconvene Monday, July 8 to debate both bills.
