House Democrats used parliamentary tactics to draw out the debate for 15 hours Sunday night and into Monday morning, pointing out technical mistakes in the process or trying to tack on amendments to fundamentally change the bill. Democrats also showed up more than two hours late Monday morning.

Supporters say the bill would improve women's health care. Opponents warn it would shut down 37 out of 42 abortion clinics in the state, leaving wide swaths of Texas without access.

 

Sunday night's debate was grueling, and the bill's sponsor stopped answering questions after she got into trouble denying Democratic amendments. When Rep. Senfronia Thompson, D-Houston, called for an exemption for women who were victims of rape and incest, Rep. Jody Laubenberg, R-Parker, explained why she felt it was unnecessary.

 

"In the emergency room they have what's called rape kits where a woman can get cleaned out," she said, comparing the procedure to an abortion. "The woman had five months to make that decision, at this point we are looking at a baby that is very far along in its development."

 

Her apparent confusion about "rape kits" — a phrase generally used to describe the equipment used by medical personnel during forensic examinations to gather physical evidence following allegations of rape or sexual assault — sparked widespread ridicule on social media sites. Laubenberg then simply rejected all proposed changes to her bill without speaking until the end of the debate

Out of embarrassment due to her complete lack of knowledge, the bill's sponsor simply shouted down all dissent.

 

How supremely conservative.

The proposal would ban abortions after the 20th week of pregnancy, require doctors to have admitting privileges at nearby hospitals and limit abortions to surgical centers. Other states have passed similar bills, but few have the full set.

 

See nothing wrong with those proposals...regardless of the confusion of the bill sponsor over that item.  Stone age?  Only one resembling ancient civilizations are those that promote the destruction of unwanted 20+ week old fetuses.  In light of the butcher mills that have been exposed, I think this is just fine.  Leave it to pro-aborts to argue the continuation of "nearly" unregulated abortion clinics being kept open.

oh look, another deep red state wants to force abortion providers to get admitting privileges for "patient safety" purposes.  we don't want more icky kermit gosnells, do we?

 

it isn't about that and it never has been.  everybody involved in this game knows that hospitals are hesitant to grant admitting privileges to abortion providers.  it's legislation crafted to railroad providers out of the state regardless of how qualified they are to perform the procedure.

 

the exact same thing happened in mississippi and the lieutenant governor in that state is on record that that was the aim of their bill:

 

The bill "should effectively close the only abortion clinic in Mississippi," said Lt. Gov. Tate Reeves in a statement. "This is a strong bill that will effectively end abortion in Mississippi." If the state's only abortion facility, Jackson Women's Health Organization, closes, Mississippi women seeking abortions would have to leave the state.

considering a federal district judge blocked all enforcement of the mississippi law i mentioned back in april, we may not have to.

There are plenty of places that agree with your assessments. Unfortunately they usually don't have 24 hour access to electricity or running water, so take your pick.

Anyone that has gone and have seen their own child in the womb at 20 weeks should not be ok with optional abortion at that time. It is obvious that at that time it is a human being.

Except in cases of the mothers health I don't think it should be legal. If you waited 20 weeks to make that decision after getting knocked up then that's on you. Have the baby and give up for adoption.
