Wendy Davis Now Backs 20 Week Abortion Ban

From the Dallas Morning News:

Wendy Davis backs 20-week abortion ban that defers to women

By GROMER JEFFERS JR. | 11 February 2014 10:25 PM

Wendy Davis said Tuesday that she would have supported a ban on abortions after 20 weeks of pregnancy, if the law adequately deferred to a woman and her doctor… “I would line up with most people in Texas who would prefer that that’s not something that happens outside of those two arenas,” Davis said.


But the Democrat said the state’s new abortion law didn’t give priority to women in those circumstances. The law allows for exceptions for fetal abnormalities and a threat to the woman’s life, but Davis said those didn’t go far enough.

“My concern, even in the way the 20-week ban was written in this particular bill, was that it didn’t give enough deference between a woman and her doctor making this difficult decision, and instead tried to legislatively define what it was,” Davis said.


The provision was part of a sweeping bill the Legislature considered this summer to place new restrictions on abortion providers. Davis initially filibustered to stop the bill, drawing nationwide attention as a special session ended with a raucous crowd disrupting the Senate’s consideration of the bill. Eventually, lawmakers approved the law in another session. Parts of it are under court review, though the 20-week ban is in effect…

Davis said she could have supported a bill that contained only a 20-week ban, but the law’s restrictions on clinics and doctors have greatly curtailed access to the procedure in parts of Texas.

“It was the least objectionable,” she 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.” …

Ms. Davis is trying to disguise her outrageous flip-flop with a lot of gibberish. Bottom line: she is now saying she supports a ban on abortions after 20 weeks of pregnancy. When that ban was at the core of the bill that she gained ‘fame’ for filibustering.

Clearly, she is now so far behind in the polls, she is willing to say or do anything. For example, she has also recently come out in favor of ‘open carry,’ and taken to posing for pictures while holding guns.

    Wendy Davis now supports abortions after 20 weeks and does not want any abortion decided between a woman or doctor.

    In other words “Wendy Davis wants partial-birth abortions on full term 9 month pregnancies.”

    Basically Wendy Davis doesn’t want the law to interfere or with anything a woman and doctor decide in aborting a baby.

    Wendy Davis defines unborn babies as weeds and their growth is defined as how deep and high weeds have grown.

    Wendy Davis wants to “weed out babies”.

    The weed babies’ defects or their mother’s health has nothing to do with deciding if the more mature big baby weed’s should be cut with a “weed wacker”, brush hog, butchers knife, or
    a “weed mulch-er” that would suck up the weeds and shred them into pieces.

    “It was the least objectionable,” she 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.” …

    But, now it’s an anything goes in getting rid of those weed babies and how it’s done should only be decided by the mama growing the weeds and the doctor who get’s paid to get rid of the weeds.

      Wendy Davis not only said she is against any ban or limit on abortions,

      Wendy Davis announced she wants all marijuana legalized in Texas.

      Wendy said Texas should legalize marijuana and join the other states that have so that Texas could be a proud state with the other states who have already legalized it in that Texas could be part of a grand study and pilot program in studying the effects of legalizing weed.

      I guess Wendy Davis missed the study that Colorado is now having a marijuana epidemic in their schools, particularly in middle school. Young preteen students smoking on school grounds and weed droppings in the halls of schools.

      go to any state that legalized pot and the cops will tell you they have problems with enforcing laws pertaining to driving under the influence of intoxicants. no tests for pot. nothing yet to determine if one is CURRENTLY under the influence. tisk tisk.
      what will insurance companies do when an injury accident occurs and they can’t prove one driver was totally stoned.

    • canary says:

      That is my main objection in legalizing pot too. They need to be able to test someone driving.
      While I understand it stays in your urine a month, and longer in the body’s fats, one of my greatest concerns in what they are learning about the brain and growth spurts for example at 15 years of age which is the age most youth start is the worse time because of the big growth spurt and parts that grow it can harm their brains and it’s irreparable.

      There is a big difference between full grown brains and growing brains when it comes to be exposed to marijuana.

      Also, mental conditions such as schizoid or bio-polar doesn’t show up till in the twenties (late twenties) and these brains could possibly do okay and prevent the mental condition but taking
      marijuana and street drugs “just one time” can trigger psychosis.

      I learned a lot from working in the medical field and behavior science field and saw a lot of cases. A twenty year old takes a street drug like PCP their first time and they end up in the looney and it’s irreversible.

      I like kids and they are my main concern and it’s not good for the President of the US to rehash he spent most of his youth smoking dope and it’s a waste.

      How medically irresponsible for him to make a statement like that and go against his own medical appointees and medical doctors and dysfunctional families.

      Obama has lied about a lot of things. He was against same sex marriage, against legalizing marijuana and now he’s using his pen and word telling the banks it’s okay to do business with marijuana retails who prefer cash. lol.
