The Texas House and Senate reconvened Tuesday for a brief special session called by Gov. Rick Perry House to discuss timekeeping measures. A recess was called until July 9, after the Independence Day holiday.
Nothing much happened, but there was plenty of interest, as abortion advocates in orange shirts lined up to protest proposed limits on abortion after 20 weeks and stricter safety standards for abortion clinics.
It would be difficult to argue that the pro-abortion crowd wasn’t an “unruly mob” — last week protesters shut down proceedings by screaming from the gallery and used social media to debate the legal consequences of rushing the floor. One protester was reportedly arrested after punching a state trooper who was clearing the gallery.
Texas blogger, Adam Cahn was there, and has a report and video from the scene where pro-life women shared their abortion related testimonies, and the pro abort mob responded with repeated chants of “hail Satan.” He notes that they had been chanting those words all day, but it took awhile to catch it on video.
Honestly, I don’t think there’s a clearer indication than this report, of who is on the side of the angels in the abortion debate, and who isn’t.
Wow, Hail Satan is trending on Twitter.
Good job, pro aborts!
Leftists seem torn between “it was ironic!” and “it was right-wing plants!” Re: #HailSatan

Twitchy: ‘Hail Satan’: Abortion supporters troll pro-lifers outside Texas capitol
The same orange-clad abortion rights supporters who sent children to #StandWithWendy in Texas today holding signs like “Stay out of my mommy’s vagina” didn’t limit themselves to strictly scientific arguments for unrestricted access to abortion. Groups of protesters also countered pro-life groups’ prayers with chants of “Hail Satan.”
