Texas SB 5 by Laurie Filipelli

Texas Senate Bill 5 (or Texas SB 5), created on June 11, 2013 and discussed during the First Special Session of the Eighty-third Texas Legislature, is a list of measures that add and update abortion regulations in Texas. The controversial bill includes a mandate that a doctor who performs abortions have admitting privileges at a nearby hospital, as well as oversight of women taking abortion-inducing drugs. It was signed into law by Governor Rick Perry on July 18, 2013.
 Laurie Filipelli lives in Austin, TX, where she works as a writing coach. Her first book of poems, Elseplace, was released by Brooklyn Arts Press in 2013.
