Slams Male Colleagues During Abortion Filibuster

As Republican lawmakers suspended Texas state senator Wendy Davis' replica van cleef lotus earrings marathon filibuster of a contentious abortion bill late Tuesday night, a Democratic lawmaker replica van cleef & arpels alhambra earrings called out her male colleagues for silencing the legislature's female representatives.

"Did the President hear me or did the President hear me and refuse to recognize me?" state Sen. Leticia Van De Putte replica van cleef black earrings asked.

"At what point must a female senator raise her hand or her voice to be recognized over her male colleagues?" she asked as the chamber erupted in cheers.

Earlier in the evening, De Putte, whose father died in a car accident last week, helped run out the clock after Republicans suspended the filibuster on the grounds that Davis' discussion of mandatory ultrasound testing was not related to the abortion bill.

"Since I was not able to be here on the floor because of my father's funeral, I ask that you tell me the three points of order so that I may understand even in the most basic way the debate about to begin," she said.

She also challenged Republicans' grounds for stopping the filibuster, pointing out that mandatory ultrasounds place an additional burden on women seeking abortions.
