The Moment When Texas's SB 5 Filibuster Went Insane

Posted By on Tue, Jun 25, 2013 at 10:27 PM

As of this writing, (10:21 p.m. Arizona time, 12:21 p.m. in Texas,) we still have no clear, firm idea of what's going on — allegedly, the Texas Senate vote on Senate Bill 5, which would place such numerous restrictions on Texas abortion providers that nearly all providers in the state would have to close their doors, took place after the session's midnight deadline.

Everything should be clearer in the morning (ideally), but for now, we have the image of Leticia Van de Putte asking a particularly relevant question on a night when a woman's right to choose whether or not she wishes to continue a pregnancy hung in the balance:

"At what point must a female senator raise her hand and her voice to be heard over her male colleagues?" - Texas State Senator Leticia Van de Putte

Update: This Vine from the Texas Legislature is insane:
