Last night around 9pm, President Obama tweeted: “Something special is happening in Texas tonight.”

He was referring to the one-woman filibuster by Texas Democratic Senator Wendy Davis to kill a sweeping pro life legislation known as SB5.

After hours of filibustering, the evening ended in a state of confusion as legislators tried to end the debate and bring the bill up for a vote while an unruly mob of abortion supporters shouted from the gallery.

Unfortunately the clock ran out as lawmakers battled over technicalities and the legislative special session came to an end before the vote could be tallied.

Cecile Richards, President of Planned Parenthood who was rallying her pro-abortion cheerleaders in the Capitol rotunda throughout the night, took to Twitter and proudly tweeted:

Cheers erupted in the halls of the Capitol as the more than 800 Planned Parenthood minions celebrated the death of the bill.

But what exactly was in this prolife omnibus to stir such passion among pro-abortion supporters?

The bill would ban abortion after 20 weeks of pregnancy and force many clinics that perform the procedure to upgrade their facilities and be classified as ambulatory surgical centers. Also, doctors would be required to have admitting privileges at a hospital within 30 miles.

These regulations are not much different than those we impose upon dentists, podiatrists and other out-patient clinics. And considering that vast majority of Americans support a ban on abortion after 20 weeks (the point at which the baby is said to feel excruciating pain), one is left wondering, why such a common-sense bill triggered such vitriolic reaction.

It’s interesting to point out that during the time that Davis was on the floor filibustering, over 1000 babies had been killed across the United States at the hands of abortionists. As Davis encased her arguments with innocuous terms like “women’s health,” and “individual rights,” she and her supporters were actually fighting to protect late-term abortionists like Houston’s Douglas Karpen, who has recently been accused by staffers of performing illegal late-term and partial-birth abortions.

Photos from Karpen’s abortion facility show babies that are huge, with gashes in their necks, indicating that these babies were likely born alive, then killed, just as Kermit Gosnell did at his notorious ‘House of Horrors’ clinic in Philadelphia. Gosnell was recently found guilty of murdering 3 babies, as well as one woman who died at his clinic when she was unable to receive care after an abortion went terribly wrong.

In fact, there are numerous similarities between Karpen and the Gosnell case, including the virtual nonexistence of complaints by the authorities which allowed both men to continue their illegal operations. Why the lack of complaints? Because when it comes to abortion, there is a severe lack of regularity oversight and accountability.

Which brings us back to the Texas House Bill that was filibustered last night.

Wendy Davis’ celebrated stand was not a coup for women’s health, or even individual choice. It was a covert operation to allow abortionists like Karpen to continue operating outside the bounds of law without any accountability. It was a victory for abortion clinics across the Lone Star State so that they might continue with less regulation and less government intervention than most nail spas and tanning salons.

This morning Davis will be celebrated as a heroine, but for those of us who refuse to demean the value of life in the womb, Davis represents a hideous but powerful lobby at the state and federal level which continues to sacrifice both women’s health and children’s lives at the altar of their golden calf – abortion.

Perhaps Abby Johnson, the abortion worker turned prolife champion put it best last night when she wrote:

If I were asked to filibuster on a bill that would save lives, I would do it. I would get a catheter, stand for an unlimited amount of hours, go without food and drink…whatever it takes to SAVE lives. It is sad to me that someone is willing to take these extreme measures just to ensure that MORE babies will be killed.”

President Obama probably didn’t realize the truth behind last evening’s tweet; but I couldn’t agree with him more. Something special did happen in Texas – liberal democrats in the Senate rejected the people’s voice and once-again sided with the pro-abortion lobby to allow the continued murder – both in the womb and outside the womb – of thousands of Texas children.

Late term abortionists, like Karpen, live to see another day. Tragically, the children they kill do not.

    We can only ask Governor Perry for another special session of the legislature to fix this travesty. I pray that he does so.

  • John Julian

    The accurate description is only slightly obscured above:

    “more than 800 Planned Parenthood minions celebrated…death.”

    What a HUGE embarrassment for Texas.

    it would be helpful to have someone stumping for the bill that understand the difference between a “rape kit” and an abortion. most times it’s better to have a single, knowledgeable spokesperson and have everyone else SHUT THE HELL UP. like a lot of legislation, your own side can sabotage you just as fast as the other side can. probably faster.

  • victorscarlo isme

    “Women’s Health”…. that term makes me so sick to my stomach. Anyone, ANYONE who knows the procedure being done to innocent lives and still decides to go “through with it” deserves to die the same way. This country is absolutely sick! The mindset of these people is barbaric and emotionless. I don’t know how Obama looks his daughters in their eyes at night and can live with himself knowing they could have been a statistic. He is a sick, sick demon who needs to be aborted!!!!

    A state, and those who condone the murder of the innocent will pay the price eventually,,,,nuff said

    Wendy Davis was a teenage mom. So, does she still have her child? This must have been a thrilling message to her/him, “If I had been able to have an abortion, I would not have had a kid as a teenager.” Gee, thanks mom, aren’t you swell. Texans please remember this broad…she has very high political ambitions, even a run at the office of Governor……don’t put this mess in Texas office; just say no.

    • Melissa Katsmom Votano

      Well she’s about as stupid as Chelsea Clinton and that’s a special kind of stupid you know. For some reason a liberal just can’t connect those dots.

  • Conservachique

    Very very sad. Wendy Davis should be ashamed of herself, but she’s not. How did so many people get so twisted? It’s such evil…why don’t they see that?

  • daveveselenak

    This communist regime, one of a culture of death, has assured that AMERIKA will incur the wrath of God. Misery and enslavement are just around the bend! The evil left will have to lie in their bed that they have made!

    I live in Texas and my husband and I watched this unfold last night. It was like watching a horror flick. This lady stood up there stating she was there so 1000’s of women’s voices could be heard, but what about those millions of babies voices? I have no words to describe how I feel and have been feeling. I weep for those innocent souls that never had a voice.

    • Julie

      Just an update, but Gov. Perry called a second special session for next Monday to do this thing the right way. Maybe next time they will escort the protesters out of the building. We were surprised that did not happen.

  • Wanda Gray

    Ah, but the liberals forgot “Don’t mess with Texas.” Governor Perry called a second special session of legislator for Monday at 2 PM. The abortion issue is on the list so the vote to enact this bill will be taken next week and passed.

  • Melissa Katsmom Votano

    Well I didn’t vote for her……get out of my Capital you mindless twit.

    • Flame

      Well said!

  • REDRUM777

    Since after-birth abortions are okay…maybe it’s not too late to abort Wendy Davis?!?!

  • blair152

    It was mob rule in Texas.
