"Texas isn’t listening to families,” said Texas State Senator Wendy Davis, at a National Press Club luncheon on August 5, 2013. Explaining her recent 13-hour filibuster in the Texas Senate, Davis emphasized that the filibuster was not just about a bill challenging reproductive rights. “It is about the failure of our [currently empowered] state leaders . . . to really be connected to our Texas families,” Davis said, describing how families are struggling with lack of health insurance and defunded public education.
