I just wanted to make sure everyone here knows this woman's name, and what an amazing impact she made by literally saving the abortion rights of most Texas residents.

Also, thanks to all the protestors who showed up to give there support. I wish I could have been there.

It was an incredible day of action. Wendy Davis did something almost superhuman and I was thrilled to see the action of so many protesters supporting her.

Wow, talking non-stop for almost 13 hours. Good on you, Wendy Davis! (Good on you or "goodonya" just means well done in an Australian-themed way. [Smile] )

I was glued to Twitter last night following the end of the filibuster and the run up to midnight. Senator Davis was amazing AND I think it's good to note all of the support she had. It was a group effort and a really inspiring one.
