Invitation-Only Democracy

Well, well, well.

Invited testimony only during the hearing next week that Senator Charles Schwertner has called, no doubt at the urging of Governor Abbott:

[T]o examine the business practices and regulatory structure of Planned Parenthood affiliates in Texas, and to investigate whether state or federal laws are being broken by Planned Parenthood and/or its affiliates in Texas in regards to the donation and/or sale of fetal tissue. The committee will consider recommendations to strengthen regulations on abortion providers, including further restrictions on the sale of fetal tissue by these entities.

A pox on the person who asked me what else the legislature could possibly do post-HB 2 and HB 3994 that could make conditions any worse.

The good news? (1) They can’t keep witness lists secret. (2) No one needs an invitation to show up at the capitol.

Anyone free next Wednesday?
