Wendy Davis became famous for filibustering an anti-woman bill in the Texas Senate that would have closed nearly every clinics in the state providing abortions services. But she's not about to let people say she's not "pro-life" -- especially since most who claim that term are not pro-life at all, just pro-fetus (since they oppose government help for children & the poor, support wars & the death penalty, oppose extending health insurance to more people, and generally oppose any government action that would make life better for ordinary citizens). Here's what she said last Tuesday at the University of Texas at Brownsville:
“I am pro-life. I care about the life of every child: every child that goes to bed hungry, every child that goes to bed without a proper education, every child that goes to bed without being able to be a part of the Texas dream, every woman and man who worry about their children’s future and their ability to provide for that future. I care about life and I have a record of fighting for people above all else.” “This isn’t about protecting abortion. It’s about protecting women. It’s about trusting women to make good decisions for themselves and empowering them with the tools to do that.”
