AUSTIN (AP) - The fight over access to abortion in Texas resumes Monday with thousands expected to attend a marathon Senate hearing and a nighttime anti-abortion rally at the Capitol.

An abortion rights rally and a hearing in the House drew thousands of demonstrators and witnesses to testify on both sides of the issue. Now the Senate Health and Human Services Committee has scheduled a daylong hearing.

An anti-abortion rally is scheduled for the South steps of the Capitol about 7 p.m.

Texas is not the first state to move toward tough new restrictions on abortion. But it has become a flashpoint in the national abortion debate, sparked by a nearly 13-hour filibuster by Sen. Wendy Davis of Fort Worth that blocked the new restrictions from becoming law.
