Stand With Texas Women: Photos & Videos From Today’s Rally As Rick Perry Calls Special Session To Vote On SB5

Today, the Texas state legislature will vote on Senate Bill 5 in a special session called by Texas Governor Rick Perry, following last week’s successful filibuster of the bill, which would close the vast majority of abortion clinics in the state. Naturally, pro-choice activists came out droves, determined to show Perry and his cronies that they won’t take this assault on reproductive rights lying down. Check out what the scene was like in photos and videos posted to Twitter, Instagram and Vine.
