Activists in abortion debate fill Capitol ahead of Senate vote

Posted: Updated:

Hundreds of activists from both sides of the abortion debate lined the halls of the Texas Capitol more than four hours before debate was set to begin in the Senate.

A vote is scheduled for Friday in the Senate on tough new abortion restrictions that failed to become law last month after a Democratic filibuster and raucous protesters were able to run out the clock on an earlier special session.

Some activists arrived as early as 4:30 a.m. Friday and the crowds continued to line up at the security station to get in the building. As has been the case for the last two weeks, anti-abortion activists wore blue and abortion rights activists wore orange. Much of the early crowd appeared to be dominated by those wearing orange.
