At about 10 p.m. Friday night, pro-life activist Abby Johnson posted this on her Facebook page:

Prolifers! Please get out of the Capitol…or find a safe place to go away from the proaborts. DPS is encouraging all prolifers to leave. Please be safe and get out now.

Shortly before midnight, blogger Adam Cahnman also confirmed that law enforcement is asking pro-life activists to leave or stay away from the capitol.

Cahnman’s Musings is currently holed up in an undisclosed location at the Texas Capitol. We are not in danger in any way shape or form. The Department of Public Safety has asked pro-lifers to stay away from the mob.

Other pro-life activists tweeted that they were being told to either hide out in offices or to get away from the capitol. There have been unconfirmed reports that a pro-abortion activist had been caught with a gun in or near the building. Whatever the cause, Rep. Steve Stockman (R-TX36) confirmed that police are telling pro-life activists to leave the capitol for their own safety.

It’s striking that no one feels the need to tell the other side that they should leave for their own safety.

Even as the threats escalated, the Senate continued to hear arguments on the bill. Late Friday night, Sen. Eddie Lucio (D-Cameron County) stood up to speak in favor of the bill. He noted that many of the Democrats who support taking such extreme actions to defend the woman’s right to choose an abortion would not help a mother choose which school she could send her children to.

The Department of Public Safety confirmed earlier Friday that it had confiscated jars of urine and feces during security inspections of the protesters who were attempting to get inside the capitol. That followed reports that the pro-abortion protesters were bringing tampons and condoms and other objects into the capitol to hurl at pro-life activists and Republican representatives and senators. When DPS started confiscating those, bricks, glitter and the aforementioned jars evidently became Plan B. Some media erroneously reported that all feminine hygiene products were being confiscated. That was not true. Police were only confiscating products in quantities that made it evident that the protesters who possessed them were going to throw them in protest, not use them for their intended medical uses.

The Texas Democratic Party has egged these protests on from the beginning. It has consistently hidden behind its phony “stand with women” rhetoric, ignoring the role in the debate played by women like Dr. Donna Campbell and state Rep. Jodie Laubenberg. It has encouraged the mob to descend on Austin and act up inside the capitol. It has not distanced itself from even the worst offenders on its side. Even after today’s revelations of discoveries of jars of human waste, the Texas Democrats found yet another low.

 

Nobody “wins” on a day like today.

Update: The bill passed the Texas Senate, 19-11, at 11:59 pm. It awaits Gov. Rick Perry’s signature to become law.

Update: After the vote, and after President Obama’s irresponsible reaction to it, the mob continued to occupy the Texas capitol. Well, Austin may be the blue dot in Texas’ red sea but it’s not New York. DPS is escorting them out.

It is time to lock and load not cut and run. It has been said "That evil exist because good men do nothing". If you principles are not worth fighting for, you are no better then the liberals that have no principles only agendas.

It's only going to get worse until someone get's shot... then things really will get worse really fast.

We have one side that not only publicly admits but proudly boasts that they are willing to break any law, and hurt any person who gets in their way. There is no debating, dealing, or bargaining with them.

We must hold our ground. We must fight like our lives depend on it...

...because they do.

Law enforcement advises peaceful demonstrators to hide or get out of town because the violent "pro-choicers" don't want them there? This is truly obscene!

And lefties wonder why the right is getting a wee bit irritable? God help this land.

I'm thinking that our Conservative State and National Reps need to do some pre-planning for the attack adds that Turn Texas Blue plans to run using the fiasco they manufactured. They need copies of video and photos from all the garbage the kooks have been doing and copies of their speeches for rebuttal ads. The message is quite simple, we came to the Capital to have a rationale discussion, they came to force a violent and non-productive confrontation. We did not give them what they wanted.

has anyone tested those potential biological weapons to see if they contain any lethal substances like aids, or ebola, or whatever?

biohazard (merriam-webster online): a biological agent or condition that is a hazard (danger) to humans or the environment.

something some group, say terrorists, would be caught using against Americans?

bioterrorism: terrorism involving the use of biological weapons.

now, maybe some warrants for some d.n.a. testing to see who supplied these weapons? lucky for us, our honest and most honorable u.s. attorney general, eric (destroy the files) holder, already has some serious experience w/ the illegal supply of weapons to bad people, and those potentially terrible and deadly consequences.

throwing this kind of stuff is meant to bring physical harm or psychological damage to the victims. that is assault w/ deadly weapons. where are the sheriffs? fed. government officials aiding and abetting deadly crimes again?

I know it's an old story, but this is what happens when the ignorant are led by a degenerate media. They think they can do as they please, including violence. Reverse the situation, say it's pro-lifers making threats, and it would be front page news, the 6:30 lead in, dominate the talk shows, a horrific scandal. Our media is both dominant and ugly.

Instead of wasting all that time, money and manpower on gently pulling those worthless piles of human debris to jail, I say while they're all stacked together in one tight mass like that to just mace the p!$$ out of the whole crowd and break out the rubber hoses and German Shepherds, maybe a few flash bangs and tear gas......nah, just dreaming a little bit ;) it would be funny, though.....nah, just kidding ;) mostly

I remember talking to a police sergeant after a fracas with some journalists, some famous international MSM types, who would not disperse the scene after a multiple homicide and were in the way of medical personel. After arresting a few, the police formed a line, got out their mace and sprayed the whole lot. The policeman said that it was sad that something horrible had to happen so that he could do what he always wanted to do with meddlesome busybody reporters—Lives are more important than your story.

Remember San Jacinto. Outnumbered, outmatched, outgunned and they still won.

Is this still TEXAS for God's sake? Really? The cops are telling law abiding, peaceful citizens to clear out and stay away from their JOBS to avoid hostile, threatening, LAW BREAKING CRIMINALS? W T blankety blanking blank F???? In the middle of the state capitol....I am trying not to scream when I type this. I fully understand the concept of diffusing potentially violent confrontations, but this is 100% one-side and 100% illegal when it transcends freedom of speech to violence and intimidation.

No, no, no and hellll no...you brave Texans stand your ground and force the cops to do their duty. God bless all of you; we need more guts and no more compromise with evil. The time has come. Each and every one of us needs to stand for right and stop allowing evil to take over our country.

Remember BENGHAZI!

There are quite a few Texans who will not back down over the threat of personal harm, pain or death. Many Texans will comply with the request not from fear, but because they respect and honor our law enforcement personnel.

Again we hear from the "It's for the children" party that has no qualms about snuffing out the life of an unborn child if 'mommy' so desires it because she forgot her pill.

Yeah that's right. Terrible optics for our great land. It's like there are two sets of laws. One for men and one for women and the women at some point got granted the right to commit murder. Couldn't be any simpler than that.

I suspect here is a reason for the left's chimp-like behavior. Once the Texas Republicans have had sh*t and p*ss thrown on them they will forever be viewed as having been chumped/punked by the left. Their dignity bubble will have been popped and their credibility as lawmakers vaporized. The leftist press will forever associate them w/ human waste. Their careers destroyed. The poop hurlers will forever be leftist icons around Austin.

This is how the Marxists (Pro-Aborts and other leftist ilk) win:
1. Threaten violence.
2. Authorities then warn the non-Marxists to run and hide.
3. Non-Marxists heed warning.
4. Only faces on evening news are the Marxists.
5. Obviously no one disagrees with the Marxist view, so it must be correct.

Methinks Marin Luther King Jr. would have opted to stand up to them in public, regardless of danger. Running and hiding gives the game to the enemy. Yes, I said enemy and I mean it. These people are the enemy within who are destroying our country.

Why not be pro-choice. Men should be demanding their rights! They need to be able to get back their half of the DNA. Equal protection. Not only is it a human right - it's a property right for men to demand women abort and the remains be divided.

I do not "get it". Reducing elective abortion from 6 months to 5 months is not depriving anyone of an abortion, merely making those wishing to abort a shorter time to make a decision. If done, should be a safe medical procedure not a botched job by nonprofessionals. If this is so important for these women, they may need to get a procedure that will negate the possibility of becoming pregnant. They do have to have children, they just need to make the decision to use birth control, tubal ligation, or abortion at an earlier date. This is advise for "elective" abortion.

A pregnant woman wants the extra time to vascillate while she weighs over the option that will hurt the potential "Baby Daddy" more, to show she has the power.

If he wants the child, if he wants to be a part of its life, she'll abort it in order to rip his heart out.

If he doesn't want the child, if he's "bro-choice" and wants it aborted, she'll have the child in order to milk him for child support and destroy him financially for the next 18 years. (Sure, he should be responsible, doubtless, but it's still an act of spite)

They want the extra time so that they can be sure they absolutely know which option will spite the man more and show him who has the power.
