In Texas, a bill known as SB 5 is before the State Senate that would ban all abortions after 20 weeks. State Senator Wendy Davis is currently filibustering the bill— you can watch live here.

Davis began her filibuster at 11:18 am CDT. To derail the bill, she’ll have to make it to midnight CDT. She is not allowed to lean against something for support, or take breaks for the restroom or meals, for 13 hours. 

Above is a gif of a map of what the bill would do to abortion access for Texan women more than 20 weeks pregnant. Here is the full map
