Wendy Davis: Actually, I support banning abortion after 20 weeks with a few exceptions

posted at 11:21 am on February 12, 2014 by Allahpundit

Via Charles Cooke, who notes that between this and her newfound support for open carry, Davis would probably qualify as a tea-party candidate in a blue state like Connecticut.

At the rate we’re going, she’s going to end up filibustering a pro-choice bill before November.

Davis, a Fort Worth senator and the likely Democratic nominee for governor, told The Dallas Morning News’ editorial board that less than one-half of 1 percent of Texas abortions occur after 20 weeks of pregnancy. Most of those were in cases where fetal abnormalities were evident or there were grave risks to the health of the woman…

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…

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.

In other words … I don’t know what she’s saying. She’s saying, I guess, that she opposes no-questions-asked late-term abortion for the sake of convenience, but she wants women to be able to invoke the health exceptions essentially on their own say-so. The definition of abnormality or health risk would be subjective, not objective via legislative language — i.e. no questions asked. How many women in their third trimester who’ve resolved to abort would be deterred by a standard like that? All she’s doing with this parsing is trying to walk the line between signaling to casual Texas voters that she’s kinda sorta socially conservative while reassuring abortion warriors who follow this issue closely that her “ban” would have no teeth in practice. But that’s not her brand; the left loves her not because she’s willing to hide behind loopholes but because she’s a loud-and-proud filibusterin’ bulwark against the pro-life patriarchy. Says Jonah Goldberg, what exactly are people who “stand with Wendy” standing for at this point? Do they even know?

Honestly, I think this has become the most interesting electoral experiment in American politics. Her candidacy is about two things: Her knighting as pro-choice royalty last year and her biography as the professional woman who’s worked her way up and is on the cusp of proving that women really can have it all if Texas will just go ahead and make her governor. Red-state political realities are forcing her to give back the first credential. All that’s left of Wendy 2014 is feminist passion play. Hence the experiment: How much enthusiasm can she sustain among liberals for a candidacy that’s now purely about identity politics? Having achieved left-wing celebrity status, can she lose that status or will they feel duty-bound, if only to save face, to excuse her heresies and go down with the ship? There must be plenty of liberal Davis fans in Connecticut who’ve noticed her nascent tea-partyism. Will they continue to pony up donations, telling themselves that it’s Good For Women and that she’ll revert to form once in office a la Obama and gay marriage? Or will they decide that it’s no fun cheering for a fighting liberal who’d rather hide and lose a close-ish election than fight and lose badly?

Either way, this is why the scrutiny of her life story is more damaging to her than it is to most candidates. It’s not because there’s a double standard for women, as she recently and predictably implied. It’s because, once you take her bio away, there’s nothing left. Exit question: If Sandra Fluke were running in a red state, she’d be anti-contraception now, right?

Impossible. The very image of Sandra Fluke is birth control at its most potent.

Seriously, the problem with abortion Barbie is that she really doesn’t have anything but that political stunt that thrust her into the forefront of Texas Dems (not all of whom, I am sure, agree with her about abortion). Her bio was as embellished as an Elton John outfit. So, besides having been proven to be a liar, telling her likely parapalegic opponent to walk in her shoes, and backtracking on her positions…. she’s a real keeper!

Happy Nomad on February 12, 2014 at 11:33 AM

I bet she is really starting to hate all of the media and nutroots types who convinced her that she was representing the silent majority in Tx. The real problem now is trying to tack far enough right that she doesn’t get totally blown out without killing her credibility with her future bosses at MSLSD.

And now Republicans should make ads showing that the standard Democratic position on abortion is (i) more extreme than that of Wendy Davis and (ii) more extreme than any pretty much other free nation (no, Russia and China don’t count!).

Run a collage of quotes from Dems trying to have it both ways and run them against every Dem in a purple or red district. Or, better yet, ask any Dem if there are any restrictions that should be passed on abortion that could not be legally circumvented by the mother and her willing abortionist.

Who art thou, Wendy? She’s ‘for’ open carry, but we’ll learn only after her election to Guv that you gotta leave all the bullets at home, under lock and with each one branded with your name and address. She’s ‘against’ abortion after 20 weeks, but post erection, that will morph into, “Oh, I was misunderstood. I meant 30 weeks.” What’s next? I was for the Constitution before I was against it?

She looks like that loony drug addled Amanda Bynes in that photo. I will repeat what I’ve said before. I’m a Texan who lives in Fort Worth. This beyotch will NEVER be elected dog catcher much less governor. She will win the majority in lefty Austin and in certain parts of Houston, Dallas, and San Antonio but they are outliers not the norm. The rest of the state is made up of some of the most patriotic, hard working, conservative, god-fearing folks you will find in modern America. Abortion Barbie will NOT win, heck she won’t even be competitive. I urge the DNC and Unions to keep pouring money towards her campaign though. Money sent to pink shoes catheter blondie is money not sent towards other campaigns.

neyney on February 12, 2014 at 11:55 AM

It’s because, once you take her bio away, there’s nothing left. Exit question: If Sandra Fluke were running in a red state, she’d be anti-contraception now, right?

I’m glad you added this at the end because this is exactly what I was thinking while reading the article. Davis and Fluke are made-up, cartoon characters who only are successful in heavily blue states because they can’t even appeal to the moderates unless they backtrack on what made them popular to Dems in the first place.

lea on February 12, 2014 at 11:55 AM

The more money the left sinks into her candidacy the better. She doesn’t stand a chance and even if she did, Texas governor’s position isn’t a strong one. The legislature and the rest of the state bureaucracy leaders (who are also elected) would keep her from getting out of hand.

Another small comment is if the issue is identity politics, these liberals can always vote for the black woman Republican candidate for governor. Her name is Lisa Fritsch. Or the Latina running for governor in the Republican ticket. Her name is Miriam Martinez, born in Mexico. Just a little fact, both are Republicans.

A white-black and a white-hispanic? Don’t think so.

Exit question: If Sandra Fluke were running in a red state, she’d be anti-contraception now, right?

At least Fluke was smart enough to carpetbag to a liberal paradise. (I assume carpetbag; I have no idea where she’s lived recently.)

Davis, on the other hand, saw stars and dollars when she gained national notoriety from the filibuster. She thought for a brief shining moment she could ride that to the Texas governorship. Now the shine has tarnished and she’s grasping at straws, resorting to stupid lib double-speak to try to convince fools she’s not lib.

As Churchill would say:

She is anchored only to drift

Resolute only in her irresolution

Is Davis related to John ‘I-was-for-the-$80-billion-before-I-was-against-it’ Kerry?

Hang in there, Wendy; you just might earn a diplomatic post at some point.

She must have read Charlie Crist’s candidates manual.

Here’s to hoping someone will call Wendy on the “inappropriate regulations” claim for the abortion industry.
Since the days immediately following Roe v Wade, feminists groups like JANE have been so rabid in their support of abortion on demand that they’ve hidden the truth of substandard conditions in the abortion industry.
Patient safety measures improved. Credentialing processes improved. Infection control measures improved. Yet the abortion industry lagged behind, protected by feminists groups hiding behind the guise of “women’s health”.

And ‘Windy’ Davis keeps on blustering from every direction.

She’s evolving.

Still waiting to see her go down on Mark Cuban on Live TV.
