Wendy Davis was busted a few days ago when it was proved that she had promoted a few 'career enhancing' lies about herself. I knew none of this last month when I named her the worst woman of 2013, a title she richly deserves.
Today is the annual Right-to-Life march in Washington, D. C. to protest the passage of Roe vs. Wade (Roe now admits she was not raped as claimed). Medical science has greatly advanced since the 1973 landmark decision, and it is quite, quite clear that by week 10 the heart is beating.
Yet Wendy Davis does not have a problem with aborting a baby after 20 weeks when it has a beating heart and can feel pain (not related but still pretty gruesome points). This woman really wants blood on her hands. Not just the blood of the infant but the mother as well. You see , last summer as a Texas state senator she became a leftist icon when she staged a filibuster in opposition to a Texas State Senate bill that essential did two things – mandated that abortion providers have admitting privileges at a nearby hospital, and prohibited abortion after 20 weeks. The bill did not prohibit all abortions and actually would save the lives of women who had abortions that went wrong.
To serve as cheerleaders for her filibuster and in an attempt to intimidate the Texas legislature demonstrators were bused in from other states. They won the skirmish, but lost the battle as the bill was passed in the end. They will probably lose the war as well.
As if all of this were not bad enough she then announced her bid to become the next Texas governor, and recently got in some real hot water when the Dallas Morning News revealed that she had lied about her background. To top that, in her denial of the truth she claimed that her Republican opponent Gregg Abbott “hasn’t walked in my shoes.” Well, no he hasn’t. In fact he has not walked for about 30 years as he was paralyzed in a freak accident at the age of 26 and has been wheelchair bound ever since.
That politicians lie is almost a given. But usually they stick close to the facts, at least the facts that can be verified. Wendy Davis didn’t even do that (a Harvard Law grad ought to at least know that much). She claims that she was living in a trailer with her daughter and was 19 when she divorced her first husband. Actually she was 21 and there has been no verification on her trailer life. Was it a double-wide, fully furnished high-end trailer on a friend or relative’s property? Or was it a tiny camper parked in a dump? It does make a difference.
Her second husband was 13 years older than her, and already a lawyer when they met. He paid for her tuition through the last two years of college and through Harvard Law School. By the time she left for Harvard she had had a daughter with him. But what kind of woman leaves two children with her husband to pursue a law degree half way across the country? The same kind of woman who files for divorce immediately after all the student loans were paid, which is exactly the behavior of Wendy Davis.
Her second husband got custody of both children in the divorce (plus $1,200 a month child support). Lucky them. Lucky that she didn’t get custody, and even luckier that she didn’t abort them – after all they were an inconvenience to her, and if there is one thing Wendy Davis objects to it is inconveniences, like the truth, or people (including helpless babies) that get in her way.
