Abortion Barbie now supports 20 week abortion restriction she filibustered against February 12, 2014

Wendy Davis just phoned to explain she realized she is running for Governor of Texas and not California.

This is too rich.  Wendy Davis, aka Abortion Barbie, aka Social Climbing Kid Abandoning Divorce Princess, has now announced that the very aspect of the bill she so famously filibustered last summer – the ban on abortions after 20 weeks – is sensible and acceptable to her*.  And, yes, she also first ran for office as a Republican, until a demonrat leaning district came open and she figured she had a better shot of getting elected as a dem.  This woman is one sad sack of pandering nothingness, isn’t she:

Davis, a Fort Worth senator and the likely Democratic nominee for governor, told The Dallas Morning News’ editorial board that less than one-half of 1 percent of Texas abortions occur after 20 weeks of pregnancy. Most of those were in cases where fetal abnormalities were evident or there were grave risks to the health of the woman.

“I would line up with most people in Texas who would prefer that that’s not something that happens outside of those two arenas,” Davis said.

But the Democrat said the state’s new abortion law didn’t give priority to women in those circumstances. The law allows for exceptions for fetal abnormalities and a threat to the woman’s life, but Davis said those didn’t go far enough.

“My concern, even in the way the 20-week ban was written in this particular bill, was that it didn’t give enough deference between a woman and her doctor making this difficult decision, and instead tried to legislatively define what it was,” Davis said.

Look, we all know that if Davis is elected, she’ll totally flip on this support and be the strident abortion diva she rose to prominence as.  Or maybe she won’t.  In her career, she’s made a habit of pandering to whomever she is speaking to.  But I wouldn’t trust her at all on this or any other issue, her sole goal in life seems to be satisfying Wendy Davis’ ambition.

Plus, the “exemption” of leaving the decision to a woman and her doctor is the same thing as saying she’s in favor of abortion after 20 weeks.  So, really, not much different here.

But it is absolutely delicious to see this woman squirm and flail as her campaign continues to sink.  I imagine Davis figures she can try to pander to the great majority of Texans who favor at least some restrictions on abortion, while assuming the radical pro-aborts know where her true sympathy lies.  But it’s becoming increasingly obvious to me, at least, that Davis is a woman who will do anything, say anything, to advance her own fortunes.  She is a veritable re-incarnation of Bill Clinton.

In which case, perhaps we should be all the more wary of her.  Clinton stood for nothing, and by doing so, managed to pander himself into two terms in the White House.  I really don’t think her foolishness will play in Texas, but who knows.

At the very least, now we can say “Even Wendy Davis supports restrictions on abortion after 20 weeks.”

I would like to assert that her campaign for the governorship of Texas is done, however, I know better. We must remain vigilant and never assume that our ‘guy’ or ‘gal’ will get in. Pray hard and work hard to ensure that Texas will be and remain a welcoming place for the young and old alike. Wendy Davis is the antithesis of a true Texian. If her kind are allowed to take the majority in our local, county and state offices, then you will know that Texas is done and it will be time to consider strongly the break up of even this great country, that is, the Republic of Texas in order to ensure that we have a place where we can manage our affairs and live our Catholicity free from any limitations imposed by a tyrannical system of governance.

I am not pleased with her popular contender either. I’d rather my good Catholic brothers and sisters consider Tom Pauken to lead our fair state.

I am so tired of the “woman and her doctor” line. When most doctors detect any potential abnormality in an unborn child, their first recommendation is abortion, as I learned while doing research for my book. Doctors want mothers to terminate problem pregnancies because they are worried about being sued for “wrongful birth” or, worse yet, “wrongful life” if babies are born anything shy of perfect. Dr. Mary Davenport of the American Association of Pro-Life Obstetrician-Gynecologists said doctors worried about their own liability have developed a “eugenic orientation.” Dr. John Bruchalski concurs. “We have become eugenicists overnight,” he says.
What I know from my work with Priests for Life is that very, very often, parents who are given a terrible pre-natal diagnosis but refuse abortion go on to have healthy babies. Tim Tebow was not an anomaly.

She’s a trial balloon for turning Texas blue through Julian and Joaquín Castro.
