What is the Powder Room?

Texas Abortion Bill is being filibustered right now by a total badass -- 3 hours and counting!

Wendy Davis took to the floor at 11:18 to filibuster SB 5, which Jez has covered pretty extensively this week — bans all abortions after 20 weeks, is based on fake "fetal pain" science, could close all but 5 clinics in the state, has been protested vigorously and awesomely by lovely Texas ladies (and gents!), and has taught us that Republicans are still hella creepy about anything sex related and hella stupid about rape.

The special session ends tonight, so if she can keep it up (she can't break to eat or use the restroom), this will prevent the bill from reaching the floor. You can follow on Twitter at @WendyDavisTexas, or watch live here.
