There is a state senator in Texas named Wendy Davis who is being hailed by those self righteous types who are forever fighting the supposed “war on women.”
Wow! What a gal! She bitched and moaned through eleven hours of a filibuster the other day without having to go to the bathroom even once. Suddenly she is the flavor of the week at least until her followers start discussing something even more important to them than killing babies. Perhaps Kim Kardashian’s latest diet or maybe what Lindsay is up to these days.
Senator Davis wants for women to be able to abort their unwanted children four weeks past the proposed law in Texas of no abortions after 20 weeks.
Kathleen Parker writes in her Washington Post column that the latest whim of “fame by filibuster” is becoming a phenomenon because this 50 year old female Texas State Senator could do an eleven hour filibuster. She even has set a new fashion statement by wearing “rouge red” athletic shoes. The stores better stock up on those at $116 a pair! I can think of two local redheads who will be rushing to show Ms. Davis their loyalty. No word yet on which shoe company she might cut a deal with.
Wendy Davis has a pair of these "rouge red"
shoes. You simply must get some!
I think this woman’s popularity and the rush to buy her shoes have eclipsed what she is fighting for. Do these ladies who gush over her know what a fetus looks like after 24 weeks? 20 weeks? Ithas a human form. It would seem that there should be some kind of a minor key struck over that. Instead the Texas senator is something in the neighborhood of being a rock star.
Parker reports that Davis is making the rounds of the talk shows which one would expect. However, the discussions are leaning more toward show biz than hard questions about those dead babies she endorses. She is the new heroine in the women’s “war” as she gets asked penetrating questions like “How are you even awake today?” and “What was it like standing that long”?
It’s up to you to decide how you feel on this subject. I have been married for over 40 years and don’t have kids. My wife and I were VERY careful to take precautions to avoid pregnancy. If she would have gotten pregnant, I would have kept the kid. Religion would have not played a part in that decision; a human life would have. Apparently not everyone feels that way today.
To the anti-abortionists, life begins at conception. Abortion rights people see limitations on abortions as infringement on a woman’s right to control her own body and a baby isn’t a baby until it leaves her body. To me, that is a cop out and the lazy way to escape unwanted parenthood and responsibility.
If you don’t want the kid be careful and don’t get pregnant. There are many ways to avoid pregnancy that are far less sinister than killing a human form.
