Clear eyes, full hearts, cast Connie Britton in the Wendy Davis biopic already

Last night’s filibuster in Texas makes a powerful feminist narrative. It’s the story of Wendy Davis, the inspirational figurehead. But it’s also the story of a broader movement, a feminist army that rose up in Texas and had Davis’ back the whole time. I so want that to be a movie. And of course Wendy Davis would have to be played by Tammy Taylor herself, Connie Britton. So I made this:

Poster shows Connie Britton speaking at a microphone. Tex reads: Clear Eyes, Full Hearts, Can't Lose. Let Her Speak: The Wendy Davis Story. Starring Connie Britton. Lifetime

The feminist army just defeated a massive anti-choice bill. We can totally make this happen.

First up on the new Congress’ agenda: Ban abortion after 20 weeks

On its very first day back in session, the new Congress got straight to work on the issue most important to the majority of Americans the small, vocal minority of anti-choice activists who control the Republican party: passing an unconstitutional ban on abortion. Representatives reintroduced the 20-week abortion ban that cleared the House in 2013 — and which now has a chance of making it through the Senate. ThinkProgress reports:

Texas crisis pregnancy centers exposed

If you follow Feministing, you probably know about crisis pregnancy centers. We’ve written on numerous occasions about these facilities run by anti-choicers that usually disguise themselves as health care facilities but serve the purpose of preventing folks facing unintended or unwanted pregnancies from accessing abortion services.
