Watch Texas Sen. Wendy Davis’ filibuster, fight for abortion rights

As I write this, Texas Sen. Wendy Davis is making a last stand for women’s reproductive freedom in the Lone Star State. The Badass Hero of the Year nominee has been filibustering for hours trying to run down the clock on a Texas Legislature special session, called by Gov. Rick Perry almost exclusively to pass a 13-week abortion ban that would close all but a handful of clinics in the second largest state* in the union.

(PS: Hey mainstream media, that’s how you do a non-sexist lead sentence! Didn’t mention hot pink shoes once!)

Watch the livestream video here:

*And because I know there will be a few readers thinking, “second largest state?” Yep. Don’t forget about Alaska!
