Speaking of the ban on abortions after the 20th week – the ban that Wendy Davis unsuccessfully filibustered in the Texas state senate….
….we have this quote, from a Texas State Senator:
“I would have and could have voted to allow that togo through, if I felt like we had tightly defined the ability for a woman and adoctor to be making this decision together and not have the Legislature get toodeep in the weeds of how we would describe when that was appropriate.”
Boy, I bet Wendy Davis would have some choice words for this bozo. Imagine, supporting a ban on abortions from the 6th month on. Whoever said that is a monster!
…the person who said that was, er, Wendy Davis. I kid you not. Click here
and see for yourself.
And when you do, you will find that Ms. Davis, probably realizing she had just made mincemeat of herself politically, tried as best she could to get out from under her own words, by eventually following it up with this unintelligible subsequent comment:
“What I tried to convey there was that it\’s impossible for the Legislature to define artfully enough exceptions that will accommodate everyday situations that women are facing in that arena, and that it has to be left to a woman and her doctor”
That starts at having it both ways, and moves in multiple different directions from there.
This is who the Democrats of Texas think can wrest a Senate seat away from the Republican Party? Someone who starts behind the eight ball because of the state\’s political makeup, wins her party over by filibustering against abortion restrictions…and then says, well, actually, she could vote for the restrictions?
Which Wendy is running? And could either of them ever win? Don\’t bet on it.
