Abortion Barbie is our conscience on abortion
The Daily Beast announced Tuesday that “Wendy Davis became America’s conscience on Abortion.” She didn’t flip-flop they contend though it was only last year that she filibustered for more than 11 hours for abortion until the moment of birth.
A Daily Beast writer says her only sin is that she committed a small gaffe by telling the truth.
The gaffe aka flip-flop is this: In a conversation with the Dallas Morning News editorial board, Davis said that she was open to supporting a ban on abortions after 20 weeks, one of the measures included in the bill she famously filibustered.
“Fewer than 2% of abortions occur after 20 weeks, and while they are uncommon, it is important that a woman and her doctor have every medical option available,” she said, indicating there should be no time limits on abortions if the woman and her doctor are not in agreement.
Her deliberately evasive use of language is merely a “gaffe.” Just like the healthcare.gov site only has “glitches.” These extremist candidates all use the same play book.
We are now to believe that Davis is flexible on the issue of late-term abortion though it is clear she wants no restrictions placed on the doctor and reluctant mother.
To be clear, this is what was in Texas Senate Bill 5 which she opposed:
The bill banned abortions after twenty weeks of gestation, something she said she found to be the “least offensive,” though obviously still offensive. She told The Dallas Morning News that “It was the least objectionable…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…”
It mandated that a doctor who performs abortions have admitting privileges at a nearby hospital.
The bill required clinics meet the same standards as other health-care facilities in the state.
That is what she objected to for more than 11 hours.
Only last year, Kermit Gosnell was convicted of murdering born-alive babies in his abortion house of horrors because the clinic was not investigated for decades. Davis opposed those standards that would have stopped a Kermit Gosnell. Using inductive reasoning, we can logically say that she thought the standards more “offensive” than late-term abortions. She also opposed having a doctor with some semblance of credibility, why?
Her goals match those of this woman from Planned Parenthood, it’s between the woman and her doctor with the father having no role:
Her conscience is that of Planned Parenthood, not of anyone who has seen a sonogram.
