Davis Is Pro-Life?
The Texas Democrat redefines terms.
“I am pro-life,” said Texas Democrat candidate for governor Wendy Davis. Of course, the new political star in the Lonestar State rocketed to fame for filibustering a bill to save the lives of babies older than 20 weeks gestation in the womb. And, after criticizing those who would seek political gain through abortion, she is now redefining the term “pro-life” for her own social justice ends: “I care about the life of every child: every child that goes to bed hungry, every child that goes to bed without a proper education, every child that goes to bed without being able to be a part of the Texas dream, every woman and man who worry about their children’s future and their ability to provide for that future. I care about life and I have a record of fighting for people above all else.” As long as those people are no longer in the womb.
