July 1, 2013 – Musical-activist Natalie Maines, famous of course for her dissing of Dubya back in 2003, joined thousands of activists surrounding the Texas Statehouse building as they protested the attempts by Republican state lawmakers who are currently trying to ram through legislation attacking women's reproductive rights. The Republicans tried to ram it through last Friday, but the great State Senator Wendy Davis mounted an 11-hour filibuster and the midnight deadline passed, and they couldn't get it voted on. Activists were worried that Republicans would once again try and strip away women's reproductive rights in the second special legislative session this week, so they staged a huge rally today featuring musicians, speakers, celebrities, activists, and of course State Senator Wendy Davis. Watch the videos below of Natalie Maines singing the national anthem, and "Not Ready to Make Nice". Read more on the rally on Reuters.com here.
