*Sent to Donna Garner on 6.6.13 at 1:06 P. M. – Excerpts taken from:
Dear Texas MoveOn member,
I’m Candice Adams Roma, a MoveOn member in Austin, TX, and I started a petition to Rep. Mary Gonzalez (TX-75), Sen. Wendy Davis (TX-10), and the Texas Legislature which says:
The people of Texas are asking to you to continue to protect women’s reproductive health and safety by denying a quorum during the Second Special Session of the Texas Legislature.
[Gives link to petition]
There are only 19 Republican Texas state Senators. Without the participation of Democratic lawmakers, they cannot have the quorum necessary to do business.
A special session can run for as long as 30 days, so there is no chance of a filibuster or parliamentary delay to prevent the passage of a draconian anti-choice bill that would severely limit women’s reproductive health options in Texas…
