1. Hundreds of people converged on the Texas Capitol today to advocate for or against House Bills 60 and 16 and Senate Bill 5, legislation that would put new restrictions on abortion clinics and doctors in Texas. Many pro-choice advocates protesting against the bills wore orange, while some pro-life supporters of the legislation wore blue.

    Here’s a solid explanation and live blog from The Texas Tribune.

    Protests first broke out Thursday, when the bill went before the Texas House of Representatives State Affairs Committee. This Texas Observer article has the whole story. Hundreds signed up to make public comment on the bill, and the meeting stretched 11 hours before officials ended further testimony.
