Cecile Richards Reads a Message from Sen. Wendy Davis: ‘SB 5 Is Dead!’

In the very early hours of Wednesday, June 26, Cecile Richards, Planned Parenthood Federation of America president and daughter of former Texas Gov. Ann Richards, read a message from state Sen. Wendy Davis in the rotunda of the Texas capitol: “SB 5 is dead.” Sen. Davis led an 11-hour filibuster that resulted in delaying a vote on the bill just long enough to make the vote invalid.
