From the hate mail stack: Angry moonbat loses it over uncomfortable Wendy Davis truths

Tinfoil Hat Area

Proceed with caution …

Someone named “Fiftycal” doesn’t care much for the truth when it comes to the inhumane procedure of abortion and TX Senator Wendy Davis’ record on it:

Ever heard of the Constitution? Supreme Court? Don’t like “abortion”? then get a Constitutional Amendment to “ban” it. Until then, STFU. Why is it that some snake handling religious superstitionists think it is THEIR BUSINESS what someone else does with their body? I am a CONSERVATIVE that wants LESS GOVERNMENT, not a “christian” that wants less government EXCEPT where I want MORE GOVERNMENT. So tell me snake handlers, which form of enforcement would you have if “abortion” was illegal? Soviet style or Chinese style? Would you make miscarriages murder? The one bit of truth the leftists have is the “war on women” meme. And Abbott will waste millions on the unconstitutional “anti-abortion” mess passed by the bible thumpers in the last session.

“Tolerant” far leftists and their fondness for a “new tone” type of dialogue strike again. Alert President Unicorn and the Civility Police! ;)

.@WendyDavisTexas continues to run away from her abortion record: “I am #prolife”

Wendy Davis' shoes

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.

Post-20 week abortion ban in Texas still stands – for now

Texas State Senator State Senator Bob Deuell

Some news reports erroneously reported early on today that HB 2 – the hotly debated Texas abortion law pro-abortion State Senator Wendy Davis (now a gubernatorial candidate) attempted to filibuster back in June – had been “blocked” in its entirety by a federal judge, leading to a lot of  misinformation being spread initially about the ruling … including by yours truly on social media.   While it’s true that parts of the bill HAVE been blocked for the time being, the post-20 week ban on abortions, which is set to take effect tomorrow, has not been blocked as of yet and wasn’t challenged in this case.  Via the Austin American-Statesman (hat tip):

A federal judge on Monday barred Texas from enforcing a key provision of an abortion law that was to take effect Tuesday.

U.S. District Judge Lee Yeakel’s opinion found that a provision requiring abortion doctors to gain admitting privileges at a nearby hospital “does not bear a rational relationship to the legitimate right of the state in preserving and promoting fetal life or a woman’s health.”

Yeakel also barred Texas from enforcing a provision regulating the dispensing of abortion-inducing drugs for “women for whom surgical abortion is, in the sound medical opinion of their treating physician, a significant health risk.” However, he allowed other parts of the provision, including a requirement for one extra office visit, to stand.


Abortion providers also complained that the law did not give them enough time. Hospitals have 170 days to rule on a request for privileges, but the law was to go into effect 90 days after the special legislative session ended in July.

In his ruling, Yeakel said the rule “places a substantial obstacle in the path of a woman seeking an abortion of a nonviable fetus and is thus an undue burden to her.”

Gov. Rick Perry said state officials will continue efforts to enact HB 2.


The case next heads to federal appeals court, where abortion-related Texas laws have recently prevailed:


One provision of the law, a ban on abortions at 20 weeks post-fertilization, was not challenged and will take effect Tuesday. The limit, with exceptions if the mother’s life is in danger and in cases of severe fetal abnormality, is four weeks earlier than current law.

Another HB 2 provision, requiring abortion clinics meet the same requirements as day surgery centers, does not take effect until Sept. 1, 2014 and is expected to be challenged in court in the future.

It’s anticipated that Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott, also running for Governor, will file an emergency appeal on the ruling with the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals in New Orleans,

#TeamWendy: Is @WendyDavisTexas running away from her pro-abortion record?

Wendy Davis' shoes

National Review’s Jim Geraghty noticed this from a fundraiser email sent out by Davis supporter and San Antonio Mayor Julian Castro:

Friend –

I just had a great meeting with my friend Wendy Davis here in San Antonio.

We talked about job creation and economic empowerment for all Texans — and I left reminded of her extraordinary determination to make Texas even better than it already is.

If you caught Wendy’s announcement speech last week, you saw why she’s been able to inspire so many people, both here in Texas and across the country. I’m going to do everything I can between now and next November to make sure she gets to the Governor’s Mansion.

Show Senator Davis she’s not taking on this challenge alone — add your name to say you’re with Wendy for governor in 2014.

Wendy is fearless.

She overcame a background of poverty to put herself through Harvard law school.

She once stood for hours to filibuster a bill that would have resulted in billions of dollars in cuts to public education for our kids.

“Stood for hours” in a filibuster over …. cuts in education funding?  Geraghty rightly calls foul:

Castro (or the staffer who wrote this) is just flat-out lying.  Davis made a one-hour-and-fifteen minute filibuster in 2011 about public education spending. The only time she stood for “hours” was in her 2013 filibuster to stop a bill that would ”ban abortions after 20 weeks of pregnancy, require abortion clinics to meet the same standards that hospital-style surgical centers do, and mandate that a doctor who performs abortions have admitting privileges at a nearby hospital.”

The Castro e-mail is attempting to blur the lines between the two filibusters, perhaps hoping they can fool people that the more recent and high-profile filibuster wasn’t really about late-term abortions but about education.

Nowhere in that email is the mention of abortion, and that’s not the only place you can’t find it.   Watch her four and a half minute “intro” video to the state of Texas. No mention of abortion. At all. In fact, she doesn’t even mention her party affiliation, which even the liberal LA Times noticed:

What’s missing in the four-minute-30-second spot? Any mention of Davis’ party affiliation, to wit, her affiliation with the Democratic Party.

The two-term state senator from Fort Worth is waging a decidedly uphill fight in the race to succeed Republican Gov. Rick Perry. It’s been more than two decades since Texans elected a Democratic governor,  and Republicans are riding a winning streak of more than 100 victories in statewide contests.

Although Davis vaulted to overnight celebrity on the strength of her June filibuster against antiabortion legislation, she can’t possibly win running as an abortion rights crusader or champion of the political left. That explains why she made no mention of her famous filibuster in last week’s announcement speech, focusing instead on education and accountability in Austin, the state capital.

It also explains the omission of the D-word — no, not Dallas — in her new campaign video.

But Texans needn’t worry. By the time the campaign is over, Republicans will have worked so hard tying her to the national Democratic Party that voters might think it’s Davis, not Joe Biden, who is President Obama’s understudy in the White House.

As they should. After all, hasn’t Ms. Davis’ name been mentioned as a possible VP candidate to Hillary Clinton, should the former Secretary of State decide to run for the Oval Office again? Yep.

This is all very interesting. Who would have ever thought that the “courageous” woman who “stood for hours in pink (actually rouge red) tennis shoes’ for the right to mutilate your unborn baby after 20 weeks would, in so many words, be running away from her now ‘legendary’ record on the topic – even going so far as to pose in a campaign photo with children who were fortunate enough to be born? Let’s hope she held on to those sneakers …

Late-term abortion proponent @WendyDavisTexas poses w/ kids to launch #TeamWendy Gov. campaign

The writing has been on the wall for weeks now, but yesterday late-term abortion champion Wendy Davis officially announced her campaign for Governor of Texas … with a picture of her with young children:

The irony of Ms. Davis posing with children after her now famous (infamous) attempted filibuster of a Texas bill – ultimately passed in the next special session – that would ban the brutal termination of unborn children after 20 weeks wasn’t lost on anyone. Clearly, Davis would like to put a happy face on the ugliest part of her “legacy” as a “heroine for women’s rights” – that legacy being the unconditional advocacy for the “right” to literally cut off the life of the most innocent among us before they’ve had the first chance to breathe on their own. But pro-lifers won’t be so quick to let it slide, nor will conservative Texans who will fight proudly to keep her out of the Governor’s chair.

Unsurprisingly, her close pal and Planned Parenthood President Cecile Richards – daughter of the last pro-abortion female Democrat Governor of Texas Ann Richards – holds a different view, and could not contain her excitement at helping Wendy Davis launch her campaign:

“Great news for women in Texas”? For the born ones, maybe, but surely not the unborn women Wendy Davis would accept being aborted during the later weeks of pregnancy where the development of the unborn child is undeniable.

Democrats are doing their darnedest to turn Texas blue, and they believe even if Wendy Davis doesn’t win next year that she’ll make significant inroads with the more “purple” citizens of Texas. Let’s hope the Lone Star State does the right thing by resoundingly rejecting Wendy Davis at the ballot box next year, sending a message to radical liberals everywhere: far left extremists need not apply.

Wendy Davis

Gov. Wendy Davis? I pray Texans will tell her to hit the door in November 2014.

Disturbing: Congress, staff members will get abortion coverage under #Obamcare exchanges


Shaking my head.

Quite simply … wow:

The Office of Personnel Management ruled Monday that members of Congress and their staffs will be able to buy health care plans that pay for abortions, even though the premiums are funded largely by taxpayer money — a move that conservatives say breaks federal law on abortion funding.

Under the terms of Obamacare, lawmakers and their aides are required to ditch their government-sponsored plans and buy insurance on state-based health care exchanges, though unlike most people on the exchanges, the staffers and members will have most of the costs of their premiums paid by their employer — in this case, taxpayers.

Federal law generally prevents taxpayer money from being used to pay for abortions, but OPM said the health care plans offered through the exchange were private. The agency also said it will make sure the money is segregated so that the portion that pays for abortions comes out of the employees’ own contributions, which amounts to about a quarter of the premiums.

“While plans with such coverage may be offered on an Exchange, OPM can and will take appropriate administrative steps to ensure that the cost of any such coverage purchased by a member of Congress or a congressional staffer from a designated [exchange] is accounted for and paid by the individual rather than from the government contribution, consistent with the general prohibition on federal funds being used for this purpose,” OPM said in its ruling.

Rep. Christopher H. Smith, New Jersey Republican, said OPM is violating a law he wrote in 1983 that prohibits OPM from paying any expenses to administer plans that cover abortion, except in cases of rape or incest or when the mother’s life is in danger.

“You can’t break the law, Mr. President, and just issue a final rule as if somehow you’re comporting with the law,” Mr. Smith told The Washington Times. “We don’t want to subsidize abortion on demand, and the public is absolutely with us.”

Freaking amazing how often this  administration gets to pick and choose (and gets away with it!) what laws it wants itself and Congress to abide by and which ones they’ll ignore, while the rest of us peons have to follow the letter of the law and foot the bill as well, regardless of moral and/or religious objections.   Lonely Conservative writes in response (via):

President Obama had a press conference late this afternoon and again blabbered about how Obamacare is the law of the land and Congress should abide by it. That’s funny, because he’s constantly ignoring or scrapping the parts of the law that are politically inconvenient to him. (Not to mention all of the other laws he routinely ignores.)


The lawbreaking continues. Just today it was announced that lawmakers and their staffs can get abortion coverage under their Obamacare plans, which will be funded by the taxpayers. They say that the abortion coverage will only be funded by the share the employees pay, but how will they even separate that out?

In other news, the media continues to ignore his ongoing claim that there is no “widespread evidence” that Obamacare is hurting employment. So expect them to continue ignoring his lawlessness. By now it’s patently obvious that most of them are nothing more than another arm of the White House press office.

Move along here, nothing to see. :(

Moral Bankruptcy Continued: “Feminist” explains why sex selective abortions are “ok”

Another day, another example of the utter failure of the modern day “feminist” movement when it comes to the responsibility and accountability of women (hat tip):

When you talk about being pro-choice, sex selective abortion is often slung at you as the triumphant gotcha. “You love women so much you want them to be in charge of what grows inside their bodies, but what about the women who areaborted, have a go at answering that? ZING!”

The answer is actually remarkably simple, and it’s this: it doesn’t matter whether what’s growing inside you is liable to end up as a man or a woman. What matters is whether the person it’s growing inside – the person who is going to have to deliver the resulting baby, at not inconsiderable personal peril – actually wants to be pregnant and give birth to this child. In a world where it’s possible to end a pregnancy safely and legally, it seems like rank brutality to force anyone to carry to term against her will.

And as far as I’m concerned, it doesn’t matter why any woman wants to end her pregnancy. As the conscious and legally competent entity in the conception set-up, it’s the woman’s say that counts, and even the most terrible reason for having an abortion holds more sway than the best imaginable reason for compelling a woman to carry to term.

National Review writer Alec Torres comments:

[Writer Sarah] Ditum argues gendercide might actually be laudable. “What about when a pregnant woman lives in a society that gives her real and considerable reason to fear having a girl? . . . In those situations, a woman wouldn’t just be justified in seeking sex selective abortion; she’d be thoroughly rational in doing so,” she writes. Ditum doesn’t mention how societies where women are afraid to have female children will be served by protecting their right to kill babies of a certain gender.

Simple answer: Because the modern day “feminist” movement is NOT about “women’s rights” – it’s about abortion rights, no matter the reason – no matter the stage of pregnancy.  Once you understand this, everything else they say and do is illuminated quite revealingly.

Margaret Sanger would be darned proud of left wing tools like Ms. Ditum, wouldn’t she?  And yet leftists accuse US of being heartless, cold, uncaring ….

Daughter of Rep. Jamie @HerreraBeutler may be the first to survive Potter’s Syndrome

Rep. Herrera-Beutler’s little miracle continues to defy the odds. Via Fox News:

Doctors believe baby Abigail Beutler, the daughter of U.S. Rep. Jaime Herrera-Beutler and her husband, Dan, may be the first baby ever to survive Potter’s Syndrome, a prenatal condition affecting the development of a baby’s lungs.

The Republican congresswoman from Washington was five months pregnant when she found out that her baby had no kidneys, and therefore was producing no fetal urine.  Doctors say that leads to little-or-no amniotic fluid, which ultimately prevents the lungs from developing.


Refusing to give up on their daughter, the Beutlers found a doctor at Johns Hopkins in Baltimore, Md. who was willing to try an experimental treatment that could potentially save Abigail’s life.

The doctor injected multiple doses of a saline solution into the congresswoman’s abdomen to try to create enough fluid for the lungs to develop.  The couple then waited to see if the treatment would work – and miraculously, Abigail was born on July 15th.

“When she came out and everybody was quiet, I think … a lot of these medical professionals were prepared for the worst. And she looked at us, and she cried, which means her lungs were functioning,” said Congresswoman Herrera-Beutler.  “I think that cry kind of startled everybody in the room.”

Doctors at Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital in California, where Abigail is currently being treated, say her weight has doubled since she was born, and she has “excellent lung function.”

According to Dr. Steven Alexander, a pediatric kidney specialist at Lucile Packard, Abigail will be on dialysis until she can get a kidney transplant in about a year or so, but he is confident about her prognosis.

“The kidney transplant success rate now is so good that we would predict a full adult life for her,” Alexander said.

Please continue to keep this family – especially baby Abigail Rose – in your thoughts and prayers.  Not only could the experimental treatment used on her prove ultimately successful in her case, but it could potentially be life-saving for other unborn children in the future as well.  May God continue to bless her!

When @WendyDavisTexas raises a nice chunk of change, what is she REALLY doing?

The Dallas Morning News reports in depth on fundraising numbers for new “feminist” media/liberal darling – TX state Senator Wendy Davis (hat tip):

In the six weeks following her headline-grabbing filibuster, Wendy Davis raised $1.2 million — nearly 40 percent of it from outside Texas. Davis drew national attention following the filibuster against an abortion-restriction bill that helped shut down the Texas Senate and prompted Gov. Rick Perry to call lawmakers back into another special session. In the wake of Davis’ new-found fame, Davis has been urged by some Democrats to run for governor next year. She says she will announce her political plans — whether to run for reelection as a senator from Fort Worth or as a Democrat for governor — in a few weeks.

Her latest finance report shows that between the June 25 filibuster through July, Davis raised $793,800 from Texas and nearly $470,000 from donors outside Texas. Her biggest donor states were California ($103,694), New York ($68,764) and the Washington DC area ($59,000).

No surprise there considering the liberal bent of CA, NY, and DC, but when you think about it, what is Ms. Davis really doing when she puts on her high heels and fashionable outfits to raise money for whatever her eventual future campaign will be (whether it’s re-election to the state Senate or Governor) ? She’s whipping up the masses into a frenzy and convincing them to donate to her campaign all the while walking all over the backs of past, present, and future aborted babies.  As a friend on Facebook put it:

That’s a powerful metaphor, ST. Wendy in her fashionable Louboutins trampling all those broken little bodies.

Yes. Remember that the next time you see Ms. Davis on MSNBC or some other similar left wing network / program being fawned over by whoever she is being interviewed by at the time.  Remember that when you read stories from the mediots about how “amazing” her fundraising talents are, how “bright” her future is.  All of it, every single bit of it, is because she “stood up” against people who wanted to protect unborn babies at the 20 week mark and beyond from being mutilated by the inhumane abortion procedure that would pull their little body parts out bit by bloody piece.  Sen. Davis stood up for the “right” for a women to kill their unborn babies for any reason – not just talking about life of the mother reasons here, which would be understandable, but for ANY reason.  How much “guts” does it take to stand up for a woman’s “right” to kill her unborn child when you know what glowing national press you will receive? It’s stark, and difficult to contemplate, but it must be said.

Wendy Davis essentially tap dances on the dead bodies and graves of the millions of aborted babies who will never get the chance that she was blessed with to find their way in the world, and people should never forget that, no matter how sharp her fashion style is.

Contrast: @WendyDavisTexas glamorizes abortion, while @KonniBurton humanizes the unborn

There’s much discussion and fanfare today over pro-abortion, filibuster-happy TX state senator Wendy Davis [D] being glamorously profiled on the pages of the far-left feminist magazine Vogue (the upcoming September edition).  The Politico gives us the short version of the puff piece:

The magazine’s upcoming September issue, known for being chock-full of fall fashion, features a glowing profile and a glamorous picture of Davis, a Democratic lawmaker from Fort Worth, Texas, who may be mounting a bid for governor. The piece offers a revealing look at Davis’s personal journey: how a struggling single mother went on to graduate from Harvard Law School and become a leading figure in the state’s Democratic politics, and recently garnering national attention.


This summer, she led a 13-hour filibuster (wearing pink Mizuno sneakers [actually rouge red — ST] and a blue Escada coat, Vogue noted) that temporarily derailed a restrictive abortion measure, drawing national attention from major political players — including President Barack Obama, who tweeted support for her. While the bill ultimately passed, Davis’s newfound fame hasn’t diminished as she continues to weigh a gubernatorial bid.

“You won’t change things unless you are prepared to fight, even if you don’t win,” she told Vogue, adding, “But I do hate losing.”

The magazine notes that Davis, who has two daughters, now lives in a “Spanish-style townhouse” and is dating the former mayor of Austin, who launched the “Keep Austin Weird” initiative — a ubiquitous slogan today in the Texas capital. She raised nearly $1 million in the wake of her filibuster and made the rounds on political television, sparking national chatter about her future plans.

“Even if she wasn’t beautiful, even if she didn’t wear cute pink shoes, even if she didn’t have a perfect-seeming life, it would still be a very compelling story,” said Heidi Mitchell, a writer who penned the Davis profile. “None of those things hurt,” she added.

The story dishes about Davis’s unruly curly hair and impressive closet as it also outlines the challenging political landscape Democrats face in Texas and details her rise to prominence in the state’s political apparatus.

Isn’t that just lovely and sweet and all sugary and spicy? /sarc

What’s interesting about the article is that the word abortion doesn’t  appear at all in it, though “antiabortion” is in it in three different spots, but it makes clear what hot button issue helped her rise to national prominence, what’s gotten her cult-like supporters/fanatics hoping she’ll run for the TX governor spot: abortion, and Davis’ unapologetic enthusiasm for the grossly inhumane, immoral procedure which – at 20 weeks, where the pro-life bill Davis unsuccessfully filibustered says should be the cut off point for abortion – tears unborn baby body parts out of a pregnant woman piece by brutal, bloody piece. It should also be noted that Davis is on record as supporting the premise behind Roe v. Wade, which essentially says abortion should be available and unrestricted up until around the 24 week mark. That’s 4 more weeks of development that Ms. Davis would support ripping apart – literally.

Contrast that with the woman who could be her opponent in the state senate race (Fort Worth district SD-10), should she make it past the GOP primary – Tea Party candidate and adoptive mom Konni Burton:

Republican State Senate candidate Konni Burton Wednesday released a video online of one of her own two adopted daughters attacking Davis on abortion.

“I am thankful for the strength my birth mother had when she chose to place me up for adoption,” said 22-year-old Tori Burton in the video.

“Tori was more than happy to do that,” Konni Burton said. “It was a joy to do that with her.”

Konni Burton said the idea for the video actually began with a Facebook post by Tori, who was upset with Sen. Davis.

“We decided we needed to get the message out that my children are here because they were not aborted,” candidate Burton said.

She volunteered for years at the Edna Gladney Adoption Center, campaigned hard for Sen. Ted Cruz, and said Wendy Davis’ stand on abortion — which brought her attention — will ultimately be her undoing.

Let’s hope so. Here’s the powerful video Burton released featuring adopted daughter Tori Burton:


Powerful, especially when Konni Burton says this:

“Wendy Davis *says* she’s standing for women, but she has forgotten the women who will never have the chance to stand for themselves because their lives were taken while still in the womb.”

Ms. Davis rakes in thousands of campaign dollars – and continues to elevate her national profile – on the backs of dead, aborted babies.  This, in spite of her own life story, which is very much a pro-life story in and of itself.  Ms. Burton, on the other hand, wants the support of the citizens of SD-10 so she can fight for the very unborn lives Ms. Davis pretends don’t matter, to give them the chance at long, productive, fulfilling lives either with their birth parents or with adoptive parents like Konni and Phil Burton themselves, the proud adoptive parents of two daughters. These are the chances that Davis’ single mother gave her, that Davis gave to her own daughters. But it’s not a chance she’s willing to go to bat for when it comes to other unborn children. In fact, she does just the opposite.  She fights for the “right” to extinguish their lives.

Dunno about you, but if I lived in Texas and in that district specifically, I know who my choice would be to represent me.  Take a wild guess.

Wendy Davis

She’ll ‘fight for the same educational opportunities’ for ‘every child’ … but she won’t fight for their right to be born.  Instead, she stands for hours for the ‘right’ to terminate them.
