Democrats succeeded in keeping stringent new abortion restrictions off the books in Texas early Wednesday — but that victory may be short-lived. Gov. Rick Perry (R) is calling the legislature back into session to deal with the abortion bill, among other issues.

"We will not allow the breakdown of decorum and decency to prevent us from doing what the people of this state hired us to do," Perry said, a reference to the protests that kept the abortion bill from becoming law during a special session Tuesday.
