Texas human beings are continuing the hard-fought battle protecting what little bodily autonomy women have there, with Sen. Wendy Davis at the helm. Thousands of supporters are descending upon the Capital for this second special session as called by Governor Rick Perry who as the meme goes, is so prolife he executed 234 people. You know, it's different and stuff. Well, yes, it IS different. To show a little support from around the world, we gathered a few pictures of those who could not be there in person, but donned orange to lend their voices to the mix, as best they could. And on a Monday, on the first of July, these people found whatever orange they could, and posted them, slice-of-life style.
