Man. We remember a time, long ago last legislative session, when all your state lawmakers wanted to do was talk about abortion and how much they hated it. They were super-duper against it, as they could not seem to stop talking about, so much so that they cheerily decimated the Texas Women's Health Program, which didn't provide abortions, pushing out the program's largest provider, Planned Parenthood, and forcing a bunch of poor ladies to either find a new doctor or just do without health care. Meanwhile, Texas lawmakers also passed that forced sonogram bill, to make sure that every woman having an abortion would get to feel just as violated as possible.
It was a magical time for Texas Republicans. But it seems to have slipped away. This legislative session, not a single anti-abortion bill has actually made it to the House or Senate floor.
