Election 2016: Harry Reid plots to block potential 2016 foe
**Posted by Phineas
A little background: a few days ago, when pressed about late term abortion restrictions in the wake of Gosnell clinic horrors, Nancy Pelosi refused to consider any changes in abortion law, calling it “sacred ground.” The irony of this supposedly devout Catholic grandmother calling for the unrestricted right to kill unborn humans was lost on her. But, I digress.
Meanwhile, just yesterday, Texas State Senator Wendy Davis (D), who came to national fame for her filibuster in opposition to any reasonable reform of Texas’ abortion laws, decided to plant her flag next to La Pelosi’s. Via Hot Air:
During a speech and press conference today, pro-abortion Texas lawmaker Wendy Davis said she would consider running for governor. The abortion activist also pulled a page from Nancy Pelosi’s playbook by calling defending late-term abortions “sacred ground.”
“I’ll seek common ground – we all must – but sometimes you have to take a stand on sacred ground,” Davis said during her press conference — referring to her filibuster to stop a bill to ban abortions after five months.
Reporters asked Davis if she supported any limits on abortions and she responded that she did not — saying she supports current federal law.
Memo to Democrats: Do it!! Follow Nancy, stand with Wendy. Between now and November, you should be out, loud, and proud in your determination to defend sacred ground: the unquestioned right to terminate at any unborn boy or girl at any point before birth. Remember, this is sacred ground. SACRED. GROUND. And I want you out there proclaiming this to the American people, with all its implications of sanctity and holiness. Let them know that the killing of an unborn child on demand is so important to you that, yes, it is like a religious sacrament. I guarantee that, if you screw your courage to the sticking place and hew to the Pelosi-Davis strategy, you will make a strong impression on the rest of America.
