I Stand With Wendy

I can’t help but bust out a mid-workday post about the filibuster marathon going on right now in the Texas state senate. State Senator Wendy Davis is nearing the four-hour mark on an intended 13 hour filibuster of the heinous anti-woman, anti-health, SB5 which would ban abortions past 20 weeks and close down all but five of the state’s health clinics that provide abortions, as well as a wealth of women’s and family health services.

Senator Davis is reading the testimonies of thousands of Texas women who have had to make the gut-wrenching yet totally personal decision to have an abortion. She is not allowed to eat, drink, go to the bathroom, or even sit or lean on a piece of furniture while she does this, and she must remain speaking the entire time. The footwear she chose to power through this incredible day?

Running shoes.

Those look like Mizuna Wave Rider 16’s to me! (Pic by Bob Daemmrich.)
