    Link: Texas Woman Vs Legislators - She speaks out and they drag her out. I wonder why they didn`t let her finish?

    I think they have a rule to address the legislator as a whole and not individuals or something. She broke it and finally gave them a reason to kick her out.

    I love the looks on politicians faces.
    The law says they have to hold public hearings so they do. It doesn`t affect the outcome at all, just something tradition says they must sit through. Until they change the law and then they won`t have to bother with us little people any more.

    These are the same people who, when taken outside, kept repeating, "Hail Satan!" while opposition was singing gospel hymns. Classy.

    The chairwoman keeps saying "You`re not allowed...you`re not allowed...you`re not allowed..." - Not allowed to WHAT? What isn`t she allowed to do? I genuinely want to know because she never said what it is that the speaker is not allowed to do.

    I think they`re not allowed to act like a complete lunatic and verbally attack individual legislators. You can speak your mind about the legislation, but once you start in with the ad-hominem attacks and yelling and screaming like an idiot, they haul you away with the rest of the trash.

    Wow, it`s the right of all Americas to voice their opinion at a public committee, even if they don`t agree with it. Texas law makers need to read the constitution.

    I`d personally be more afraid of the New York State legislature than that of Texas; one of the many reasons I left New York.

    How is it any less classy than the people singing gospel hymns outside of a government building? What happened to separation of church and state?

    danagamer-"Wow, it`s the right of all Americas to voice their opinion at a public committee"

    Actually, it`s not. Speaking before a committee is not a First Amendment issue. You still have to follow the rules established by the body or the law.

    The First Amendment say no law shall be made to limit free speech, but it does not require a committee to give them a venue. She could finish what she was saying outside.

    The second she started calling them out by name, she was in violation of the rules of committee and subject for removal.

    Beardofzeus: They shown her respect and allowed her to speak, until SHE decided to make personal accusations and attacks. There is a standard to debate, she decided to not follow that standard and she knew (or should`ve known) that her bad behavior would get her thrown out. I believe that`s what she wanted to do, make a scene and claim martyrdom for it.

    Funny thing about this abortion bill in TX is that there`s a good chance Rick Perry`s sister could make a ton of f*cking money from it. For some reason, people seem to be ignoring that.

    drworm2002-""and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances." Read it... "

    I have. Even more important, I understand it.

    There are established ways to petition the Government for a redress of grievances. Testifying as a witness in a Texas house committee is not one of them. When you are in that forum you are to abide by the rules, or you will face expulsion.

    Her rights were not trampled. She lost her time to speak due to her own stupidity and failure to abide by proper decorum. (and she made a fool of herself at the same time)

    What an obnoxious arrogant liberal twat. I`m sure that the people of Texas all torn up that she`s moving to New York. They deserve each other.

    Ya your arrests of EDL memebers on no grounds what so ever is so free... If she could behave like an adult perhaps they wouldn`t have to drag her out.

    Forcing themselves inside your womb? Yeah, I`m sure you they got you pregnant in the first place. What about you forcing your selfish murder upon the helpless baby who had no choice in any of this? Bogus science? What, that babies can live outside the womb within the time period this bill was requesting? That`s not bogus. It`s a proven, repeatable fact. You probably didn`t even read the legislation, you selfish brat.

    Pro-choice people are not all as angry as this woman, although I can`t blame her anger considering how much of a bunch of backwards twats the local Texas government seems to be.

    Never said they`re nice but they were also not breaking a law I see and not allowed to speak their mind.

    "Forcing themselves inside your womb? Yeah, I`m sure you they got you pregnant in the first place. "

    Women sure as hell don`t get pregnant on their own. They weren`t the only one to make the choice to have sex and yet conservatives put all the responsibility on women. Okay, fine. I get to decide what to do with my pregnancy and my body. What if I decide that I can`t afford to raise a child? Or that I don`t believe I`m mentally fit to be a mother? Should I still have that child?

    I was raised by a woman who had an abortion and regretted it forever. She made me terrified of sex because I could get pregnant. I haven`t gotten pregnant, but I`ve never considered myself as someone with a healthy attitude toward sex either. Sex isn`t just reproduction.

    Conservatives complain about unplanned pregnancies and single mothers living off welfare, but then they do everything they can to work against the two best solutions -- sex education and abortion rights. Tex

    Texas has it completely backwards.

    That being said, I really don`t appreciate that idiot woman being a voice for women`s reproductive rights. She was extremely selfish going off on a tirade like that.

    The point is that she has the right to speak her mind. She`s absolutely correct; it IS her government, and she was in the proper venue. If she cannot speak her mind there, where exactly, in this supposedly free nation, can one speak to her government without being removed/recriminated against when her views do not align with theirs?
