Electrified Crowds Greet Wendy Davis & Company Tour In Houston (VIDEO)

Senator Wendy Davis and her colleagues from the Senate, Senator Kirk Watson, Senator Rodney Ellis, Senator Sylvia Garcia, and Senator Jose Rodriguez are touring Texas by bus. Their intent is to rally and educate Texans in order that they will take corrective action for the current fraud that is the current legislature.

There were over 1000 souls in attendance even after a downpour followed by a very muggy humid heat. Attendees did not mind the heat, wet, or the mud. They gave the Senators and Cecile Richards of Planned Parenthood a fiery hot welcome. This rally exceeded expectation just as did last night’s rally in Austin and last week’s rally.

All of the attendees knew exactly why they were there. “I feel strongly about this issue,” said Linda Walker, a veteran that served the country. “I didn’t serve this country to   be treated as a second class citizen.”

Laura said that she was out rallying with everyone else because “I feel like women’s rights are being taken away. It’s not fair. It’s not constitutional and that’s not what special sessions are for, it’s for emergency situations; not for something that is related to a woman’s body,” she said. “My grandmother fought for this. We shouldn’t still be fighting for this,” said Kara.

“Men need to stay out of our bodies, especially politicians. They have no say in what we do with our bodies,” said Mandy. Mandy’s friend Amanda said she has been registered to vote since she was 18. “They better bet their sorry butts that I will remember each one of my representative who voted no because they are not voting for me. They are not representing me,” she said.

The roar of the crowd could be heard for several blocks in Downtown Houston. Following the event, the Senators mingled with many in the crowed for a while before returning to the bus.
