Never underestimate the commitment of liberal Democrats when it comes to defending their right to slaughter pre-born human babies.
The Democrat at the heart of the filibuster of a Texas bill to ban abortion after 20-weeks of pregnancy and require clinics that perform them to upgrade their facilities to be classified as ambulatory surgical centers — demonstrated her dedication to abortion by actually wearing a catheter as she took to the state senate floor.
Sen. Wendy Davis, 50, donned pink running shoes, a back brace and, yes, a urinary catheter, to equip her for the 11-hour filibuster she delivered in support of abortion. Texas filibuster rules disallow bathroom breaks. But Davis’ keen enthusiasm for being able to snuff out human life was overpowering.
“She’s a total fighter,” gushed liberal abortion activist Cecile Richards, president of Planned Parenthood Action Fund. Richards is the daughter of the late former Texas governor Democrat Ann Richards, a longtime advocate of abortion.
Matthew Balan writing for NewsBusters reports on the fawning praise and biased coverage the national media provided to this “new star in Democratic politics.”
Watch this video in which she is being encouraged by CBS anchors Charlie Rose and Norah O’Donnell to run for governor of Texas based on her exploit — despite the fact that she barely squeaked into her state senate seat in November 2012 with 51.1% of the vote to her opponent’s 48.9%.
