I didn't quite have time today to make some snazzy pink shoe art to honor Senator Wendy Davis of Texas for her actions last night so this quick meme will have to suffice. Every now and then an election official rises to the occasion to support her constituents in their needs and human rights. Texas officials yesterday attempted to pass a bill which would have limited abortions in the state by extreme measures while shutting down the vast majority of abortion clinics in the state. Senator Davis stood in opposition of this bill for over 11 hours without a break in her now-iconic pink sneakers. Even when the Republican majority shut her down, it was just a few minutes too late for their vote on the bill to count. Protesters chanted, "Let Her Speak, Let Her Speak!"
