- TweetStorm to STOP #SB5 in Texas.
- Texas introduced a bill (Senate bill 5) that aims to ban abortion after 20 weeks, force clinic doctors to hold admitting privileges at nearby hospitals and restrict abortions to surgical centers, measures that opponents say will virtually outlaw the procedure in the state and deny thousands of women vital medical care. http://www.salon.com/2013/06/24/texas_abortion_bill_sponsor_doesnt_know_what_a_rape_kit_is/singleton/
- “If this passes, abortion would be virtually banned in the state of Texas, and many women could be forced to resort to dangerous and unsafe measures,” Cecile Richards, president of Planned Parenthood Action Fund

- How to TweetStorm:
- 1. Use the #SB5 hashtag with whatever other tags you would like. Make sure #SB5 is tagged onto every tweet you use.
- 2. Tweet live updates, articles, quotes, personal stories, any and everything associated with #SB5 and standing in solidarity with the People's Filibuster.
- 3. DO NOT RETWEET! Copy and paste tweets with "RT" instead of clicking the Retweet button. If you click the Retweet button, it will not do anything to help #SB5 trend. So do not be afraid to steal tweets!
