As the photo above indicates, the pro-abortion folks are acting as classy as they've been all session.
Last time we walked through the main part of the Capitol, there was a big crowd of pro-abortion folks screaming and a group of pro-lifers silently praying around them (apologies for the poor audio quality):
In other news, well....

The Texas Tribune has more here.The Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS) today received information that individuals planned to use a variety of items or props to disrupt legislative proceedings at the Texas Capitol.
Therefore for safety purposes, DPS recommended to the Texas Senate that all bags be inspected prior to allowing individuals to enter the Senate gallery, which the Texas Senate authorized.
During these inspections, DPS officers have thus far discovered one jar suspected to contain urine, 18 jars suspected to contain feces, and three bottles suspected to contain paint. All of these items – as well as significant quantities of feminine hygiene products, glitter and confetti possessed by individuals – were required to be discarded; otherwise those individuals were denied entry into the gallery.
In the interest of the safety and security of Texas legislators and the general public, these inspections will continue until the conclusion of Senate business.
According to a friend who has been in the Capitol all day, DPS also confiscated bricks, but Cahnman's Musings has yet to confirm this report.
