Republicans cheat: Vote on abortion after midnight

Anyone following the abortion fillibuster/vote in Texas? #standwithwendy
Apparently the vote passed 17-12, but Dems are claiming that vote took place unconstitutionally post-midnight.

TEXAS SENATE GOP PASSES RESTRICTIVE ABORTION BILL


AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — Texas Republicans have passed new abortion restrictions expected to close almost every abortion clinic in the nation's second most populous state.

The Republican-controlled Senate voted for the bill while hundreds of protesters screamed from the gallery. Reporters and Democrats saw the voting begin after midnight, but Lt. Gov. David Dewhurst said it began just before.

Texas' special legislative session ended at midnight, and Democrats spent most of the day filibustering the bill. Republicans cited rules to eventually force a vote to end the filibuster.

The bill bans abortions after 20 weeks of pregnancy and requires that all procedures take place in a surgical center.

Doctors who perform abortions would also need admitting privileges at a hospital within 30 miles. The surgical center requirement would shut down 37 of Texas' 42 abortion clinics.

This is why I have a strong dislike towards Republicans. They have this if I can't win one way, I'll do it another.

Re: Republicans cheat: Vote on abortion after midnight

News outlets are reporting that the bill failed. It was established that the voting was recorded at 12:03 despite Republicans manipulating the official time stamp.

The U.S. has been a mess lately. Making my current location of China feel like less of a hot mess than it really is.

The system is fucking stupid. I don't see how it matters at what time they passed the bill. The outcome should be determined by the vote.

Yeah, I'm sure that's what the Republicons thought, too, cuz they don't give a damn about rules that don't serve them, either.

Re: Republicans cheat: Vote on abortion after midnight

It's failed, but Perry will just call another special session.

This bill wasn't even supposed to come up during this special session, which was supposed to deal with budget problems and our fine, unconstitutional job of redistricting to make sure that illegal immigrants, descendents of recent immigrants and blacks are underrepresented.

The Republicans tried to sneak it by when nobody was looking and got caught.

Yes, because winning via filibuster is the ideal way of things.

Not saying I'm for this bill, but seeing people cheer for a filibuster makes me queasy.

Well what else are they supposed to do to stop the Republicans from destroying women's health and right to choose by all but making abortion impossible to get for large portions of Texas?

So what are the women supposed to do until then? What is the rape victim in one of the areas where there won't be a way to get an abortion for hundreds of miles supposed to do? The way Republicans in the South are trying to get around Roe v Wade by doing every single thing besides make abortion outright illegal is beyond dishonest and disgusting. Filibusters (and I mean the talking kind like this, not the other one which is lazy and horrible) were designed to try and prevent tyranny of the majority which is what the Republicans have been doing in the South with all these abortion laws.

Most people that I've read on this are not cheering a filibuster; they're cheering having at least one more day where old white men don't set women's rights back closer to 1950. The fact that it was done by filibuster certainly made for good theatre, but was besides the point for those of us who actually give a shit about fighting misogyny.
