As has been previously reported, feminista darling-turned candidate for Texas governor Wendy Davis is running away as fast as she can from her abortion record.  Her “introduction” campaign video to the state of Texas last month didn’t mention the word abortion nor talk about the issue once, in spite of the fact that her rise to national prominence is based SOLELY on that one issue.

Yesterday in Brownsville, TX, the TX state senator took another giant leap away from her staunch abortion advocacy record by actually claiming that she – the one who tried to filibuster a bill that would make abortions illegal after 20 weeks – was pro-life.  Via the Valley Morning Star (bolded emphasis added by me):

But while in Brownville Tuesday, Davis revealed her campaign for governor isn’t based on her abortion filibuster and brightly colored shoes.

Her campaign stop at the University of Texas at Brownsville centered on a lesser-known filibuster of hers: one she conducted in 2011 in opposition to a budget that tried to cut $4 billion from public education.

Education, she said, was crucial to the fulfillment of what she called Texas’ promise.

“If you work hard you can become anything you desire to be in a place like Texas,” she said. “That promise was one that my state delivered to me when I was young, but the promise today really has been broken.”

Indeed, it has, ironically enough by pro-choice politicos like Wendy Davis who are perfectly ok with unborn children having the very opportunities she and her fellow Texans were given from the moment they were born away from them: The chance to be born and to have the opportunity to “become anything you desire to be.”

Continuing on:

Davis said her approach to job growth differs from the Republican plan just as her approach toward the goal of having zero abortions in Texas differs, characterizing herself as a reluctant participant in the abortion debate.

“The battle over reproductive rights and women’s health care that was waged on June 25 was not a battle I chose,” she said. “When I believe women’s health is in danger, I’m going to stand and fight to protect that.”

[...]

“This isn’t about protecting abortion. It’s about protecting women,” she said. “It’s about trusting women to make good decisions for themselves and empowering them with the tools to do that.”

[...]

“(I’m) a woman who wants desperately for others who are coming up in poverty to receive the same kind of partnership from the state that I once received so that they too can become a part of the success of Texas,” she said.

Davis suggested that her views on abortion access do not mean she does not care about life.

I am pro-life,” she said, borrowing from the label anti-abortion activists assign themselves. “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.

Only after they are born, though – not before. And that’s the problem, Ms. Davis. The unborn are people worth fighting for, too.

  1. All these little commiecrat deception games are an indication of the self-created backlash they fear. Davis’ denial of her celebrated abortion filibuster and Obhammud and his denial of what he said about being able to keep your insurance policy and healthcare provider are the most obvious examples.

    Answer this: How successful was Christine O’Donnell’s attempt to downplay her remarks about witchcraft?

    Drew – the downside for O’Donnell was that, with that one little remark, the MSM pounced like hyenas on a wounded (Republican) calf.
    A female commiecrat says that and it’s forgotten or laughed off instantly, no big deal because it’s ancient history and you’d not only be a misogynist you’d also be a hateful “Wiccanist” if you had a problem with it. ;)

    But yeah, this is typical commiecrat modis operandi – run toward the center during a primary and general, get elected and turn on a dime back to the leftist doctrine of destroying the fabric of American society.

    As a Texan, and I know it’s early, little miss baby killer shouldn’t have a snowball’s chance in hell to win. But then I also realize that the Dems #1 target is our state and they’re going to pull out all the stops to get her the governorship.
    Before it’s all over, Abbott will have been personally responsible for WWI, the Holocaust, Kennedy’s assassination, and globull warming. While Abortion Barbie will be Snow White.

    Although it is vey sad when you think of the 52 million babies that have been aborted or the fact that the Gosnell trial exposed how some of the aborted babies struggled so hard live, I do think Conservatives have a better chance of winning when they stay away from social issues. Look at the difference between the results of the 2010 election (which focused on limited government, less regulations, and balanced spending) and the 2012 election where the anti-abortion views of two candidates lost the election for them. All Tea Party or Republican candidates in 2014 and 2016 can expect to be condemned for their war against women. Unfortunately, too many women believe the Democrats’ fearmongering and lying about the Republicans are going to take away their birth control and ability to to get an abortion.
