Texas abortion bill dies as confusion marks end of session

(CNN) - The Texas legislature's special session ended in chaos and confusion early Wednesday, when a marathon filibuster failed - but so did a Republican effort to pass a bill that would have greatly restricted abortions in the state.

The Republican-dominated Senate needed to vote 'aye' on the bill by midnight to send it to the governor to sign into law.

    Great.. If woman wants let her abort–give choice to her–quit your religion stuff in 21st century. It is nonsense. What if if woman can not afford to have a child? Can you feed THAT child?? Can society feed?? Like Medicare to foreign doctors with greedy universities, greedy hospitals???

    This single issue, is keeping the Republicans out of office. They cannot get the women's vote.

    Well so much for the abortion bill. I'm sure it will make it's way to the Supreme Court. Now about that Climate problem Obanma is spouting.

    It seems a lot of stuff has already been done to reduce polution over the last 20 or so years. But, hey, Chicken little is still alive and well out there.

    As hard as I've tried, so far I've found no way to feed hay in the front end of a cow and have clean air come out the back. No kidding.

    What lof course CNN fails to mention is that once again the democrat liberals squelch the desires of the majority of Texans who support the law. Kinda like the Obozocare that is about to destroy our lives.

    Good that the Bill had died a natural death. Why should anyone want to control someone's personal life? Those who want to control, why don't you provide: money, shelter, food, healthcare, transport etc. etc to every and each individual, so that you can gain the full control? Can you leave people live the life they want without interference?
