Texas lawmakers convene to revive abortion bill

Demonstrators rally at Capitol during session

AUSTIN, Texas — Thousands of demonstrators converged on the Texas Capitol on Monday, the majority expressing their opposition to new abortion restrictions that a Democratic filibuster and raucous protests derailed last week.

Lawmakers briefly convened a special legislative session aimed at reviving the bill that would limit where, when, and how women may obtain abortions in the state. Supporters say it will protect women’s health and fetuses, while opponents say it is designed to shut the state’s abortion clinics.
