Wendy Davis: Actually, I Can’t Support a 20-Week Abortion Ban
It is amazing that this lying flip flopper still is taken seriously.
Check it out:
Wendy Davis must be dizzy from all the spinning she’s done this week on the question of abortion.
Tuesday morning the Dallas Morning News reported that Davis had said she could support a 20-week ban on abortion, just not the specific one included in the bill she filibustered last June. Davis said “I would have and could have voted to allow that to go through, if I felt like we had tightly defined the ability for a woman and a doctor to be making this decision together and not have the Legislature get too deep in the weeds of how we would describe when that was appropriate.”
The reaction from some on the left was disappointment but the NY Times decided to take the lemons and make lemonade. In a story published Thursday they praised Davis’ nuanced position on the issue and assured readers “Ms. Davis and her aides had made similar comments previously.” In other words, Davis openness to a 20-week ban isn’t really news.
