Wendy Davis running away from abortion?

She may owe her national stardom to her eleven-hour filibuster of a bill that bans abortions after 20 weeks, but now that she’s running for governor, Texas gubernatorial candidate Wendy Davis is shying away from any mention of abortion on her campaign website.
In fact, she doesn’t even have a mention of “reproductive rights” in any context on the issues page. The only hit on “reproductive” on a Bing search of the website goes back to her filibuster against SB1 last year. The word “abortion” doesn’t come up at all.
She does brag about a filibuster, but it’s not the one that made her famous, Johnson reveals:
Even Wendy Davis knows that she’s too extreme for Texas on abortion.
