Summary

On June 25, 2013, Texas Senator Wendy Davis filibustered for nearly twelve hours in order to block the passage of Senate Bill 5, a bill which would greatly impact access to reproductive healthcare in the state of Texas. Though her filibuster successfully blocked SB5, the bill was repackaged and passed in a second special session as HB2.

This work contains transcripts of almost 64 hours of debate and testimony on the Texas Senate and House floors, starting with Wendy Davis' filibuster of SB5, including the proposed House and Senate amendments for HB2, and ending with powerful citizen testimony on these bills.
