Watch State Troopers Drag a Screaming Protester as Texas House Approves Abortion Restrictions
As expected, the Texas House passed new, restrictive abortion restrictions this afternoon, sending them on to the Senate for final approval, but not before Democrats could launch astatewide bus tour

dragged the demonstrator from the chambers, as you can see for yourself above.
