Texas House sets vote on abortion restrictions

Advocates rally, prepare for days of long hearings

Activists for and against the proposed restrictions descended on the Capitol for the hearing. Antiabortion demonstrators staged a rally Monday, and abortion rights activists march through downtown Austin about the same time.
