No surprise.

Via The Hill:

President Obama on Tuesday voiced his support for a Democrat filibustering a controversial abortion bill in the Texas statehouse.

State Sen. Wendy Davis (D) filibustered for nearly 13 hours to protest a bill that would have banned abortion in the state after 20 weeks.

Democrats successfully blocked the bill from passing after midnight.

Texas Gov. Rick Perry (R) had called the special session to move the anti-abortion rights bill and could reconvene the legislature for another 30 days to resume efforts to pass the law.
