Texas Capitol now center of larger abortion battle

AUSTIN (AP) - by WILL WEISSERT/The Associated Press

Hundreds of abortion rights activists ensured that the first special legislative session descended into chaos.

Now, Texas Gov. Rick Perry has convened a second one and urged abortion opponents to respond with mobilizations of their own.

That means the Texas Capitol will again be the center of an ideological battle over abortion when lawmakers return to work at 10 a.m. Monday. The bell the clerk rings in the House for members to register their attendance could be reminiscent of a boxing match—announcing round two of a larger political slugfest.

The Legislature’s Republican majority has vowed to pass wide-ranging abortion restrictions. Opponents plan more protests.

Perry has urged lawmakers to work faster this time. He wants abortion bills approved long before the deadline so a filibuster won’t work.
