Photos: Abortion rights protest at the Capitol

Posted: Updated:

On Monday thousands of people descended on the Capitol grounds to rally for abortion rights on the first day of the special session.  The Republican party is attempting to push through a bill that would severely increase restriction on abortions in the state.

Governor Rick Perry called the special session after lawmakers failed to pass abortion restrictions during the special session that ended last week.

In addition to those people rallying for abortion rights, many Pro Life demonstrators also showed up to the Capitol on Monday.
