This time when the Texas Senate takes up tough new abortion restrictions, the chamber's top Republican is determined not to let anything ? or anyone ? derail a vote. The Senate's leader, Lt. Gov. David Dewhurst, has scheduled a vote on the same restrictions on when, where and how women may obtain abortions in Texas that failed to become law after a Democratic filibuster and raucous protesters were able to run out the clock on an earlier special session.
