Following the successful filibuster of the legislation by Democratic State Sen. Wendy Davis, Gov. Rick Perry recently announced that a second special session was convening to vote on the looming abortion bill.

If the abortion legislation passes, only five of the 42 abortion clinics in Texas will remain open.
