Something astounding happened last night. History was made in the Texas State House.
Yesterday hundreds of Texans stood up to Governor Perry’s extreme anti
-women agenda.
 
They
said “NO” to the Texas Republican Party’s War on Women
.
 
They said “NO” to playing politics with the health of Texas women
.
 
They said “NO” to closing forty women’s health clinics across Texas, leaving just five to council millions of 
Texans.Over 700 T
exans showed up to create a Citizen’s Filibuster. And they stayed in our State House until nearly 4
 A.M., when the Republican Committee Chairman ultimately shut it down.
 
By the time they were done, the entire
world 
was listening.Word of this action spread across the United States and the world, trending on Twitter above all other topics.That's the first time that's ever happened to a bill in the Texas legislature. This is simply unprecedented!
What happened in Austin last night will be remembered as a turning point. As a moment when the trueface of Texas stood up and said: Governor Perry and extremist anti-women legislators do notrepresent us.
