Texas Special Session Begins


Both sides of the abortion debate get ready for an intense special session Monday in Austin.

Governor Rick Perry called for the 30-day special session after Texas Republicans failed to pass a restrictive abortion bill due to a democratic filibuster.

The bill aims to ban the abortion procedure after the 20th week of pregnancy, and could result in 37 of the 42 abortion clinics in the state shutting down.

Also on the agenda: transportation funding, and a juvenile justice proposal involving 17-year-olds.
