Wendy Davis Makes Over $1 Million Filibustering for Late-Term Abortions



How much money can a state Senator from Texas make for her campaign account by filibustering against a bill to ban late-term abortions?
 
“Texas state Senator Wendy Davis has reaped nearly $1 million in political donations since she staged a nearly 11-hour filibuster that ultimately failed to stop the Texas legislature approving stringent new restrictions on abortion in the state, her office said on Monday,” according to Reuters.


Davis, 50, who is running for re-election to the state Senate in 2014 and has been called upon by some fellow Democrats to run for Texas governor, raised $933,000 in two weeks and now has more than $1 million in her campaign coffers, her campaign said.
 
Texas campaign finance reports, due by midnight Monday for fundraising in the first six months of the year, show that Davis has a large following in Texas as well as outside the state. She received donations from 15,290 contributors, her campaign said.
 
The report shows Davis raised $580,000 from Texas contributors and the balance of $353,000 from out-of-state donors. The majority of the funds were raised in the period after she staged the filibuster.
 
In a new column at National Review, pro-life writer Rich Lowry says Davis is the perfect example of an abortion extremist.
 

Wendy Davis is the country’s most prominent defender of late-term abortions. What Rosa Parks was to desegregation, what Eunice Kennedy Shriver was to respect for the disabled, what Elizabeth Cady Stanton was to women’s suffrage, the Texas state senator is to abortion after 20 weeks of fetal development.
 
Texas just passed a law banning abortion after that point, a measure supported by the public and by common sense, but not by the stalwart Davis. For her trouble, she has been accorded fawning media coverage and showered with $1 million in donations, showing that abortion radicalism sells in America — so long as it is pro-abortion radicalism.
 
A ban after 20 weeks, near the end of the second trimester, represents a minor restriction on abortion by any reasonable standard. Many European countries, which we tend to consider laxer on such matters, ban abortion well before 20 weeks. It’s not just that Wendy Davis is out of step in Texas; she would be out of step in Belgium and France, where abortion is banned after 12 weeks.
 
 Davis likes to say that fewer than 1 percent of abortions in Texas take place the 20th week or later, without realizing how that damns her own case. By her own admission, she is not willing to give up even 1 percent of abortions. Nationally, opponents of the 20-week prohibition cite the same 1 percent statistic. Even if it is accurate — and no one can know for sure — that means 8,000 abortions a year after 20 weeks.
 
If the balance of the Democratic party weren’t invested in protecting abortion as a kind of secular sacrament — “sacred ground,” as Nancy Pelosi calls it — it would recoil from Wendy Davis in embarrassment. Instead, it lionizes her. And why not? She exemplifies its moral and political bankruptcy on this issue.

I was in Barnes and Noble yesterday, and saw her on the cover of Texas Monthly(with a couple of political powerbrokers beside her). Maybe I shouldn't be surprised, but Texas Monthly doesn't exactly promote people like her...

Governor? Wendy Davis decides her next steps

Texas State Senator Wendy Davis, who rose to prominence in June after an 11-hour filibuster against legislation that aimed to restrict abortion rights in the state, said Monday that she’s considering a run for governor.

“I’m working very hard to decide what my next steps will be,” Davis said at a luncheon at Washington D.C.’s National Press Club. “I can say with absolute certainty that I will run for one of two offices, either my state senate seat or the governor.”

Davis did not elaborate further, except to say that she will make that decision “hopefully in just the next couple of weeks.”

Davis, 50, has become a rising star in the Democratic party. She raised about $1 million in donations after her filibuster, with more than a quarter of those funds coming from out of state.

**Yes, I know both "parties" are merely opposite sides of the same Hegelian Dialectic coin, but nonetheless when you hear the buzzwords "rising star", you know the Illuminati minions has plans for them(ie-like when they labeled Obama the same in 2004).

Her personal story–a teen, single mom who put herself through community college, then Harvard Law–resonates with, well, almost everyone.

**This is the same, typical rags-to-riches story you hear from not only politicians like Bill Clinton, but celebrities as well. There's nothing new under the sun.

The bill Davis rallied against eventually passed when Texas Governor Rick Perry called lawmakers back for a second special session and the legislation sailed through the Republican-controlled house and senate. Perry signed it into law in July.

“I do think in Texas people feel like we need a change from the very fractured, very partisan leadership that we’re seeing in our state,” Davis said Monday.

If Texas goes all red again in 2014, it will be the 20th consecutive year that its residents have elected only Republicans into statewide office. The last seat to go blue was Bob Bullock as lieutenant governor in 1994–the same year the state’s last Democratic Governor, Ann Richards (mother of Planned Parenthood President Cecile Richards) lost her re-election bid against George W. Bush.

Current Governor Rick Perry announced earlier this year that he will not run for re-election. The presumed G.O.P. frontruner, Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott, is considered a formidable opponent with more than $20 million already in his war chest.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Texas is NOT a "conservative" state - for one, there's lots of megachurches here. Two, it's the home of 3 NWO Presidents. And I'll leave it at that.

Abortion Superstar Wendy Davis Will Run for Texas Governor in 2014



Reports out today indicate abortion superstar Wendy Davis, who rose to national infamy by leading the filibuster against a bill to ban late-term abortions in Texas, will run for the Democratic nomination for governor in 2014.
 
During a speech and press conference last week, Davis called abortion “sacred ground” and indicated she may run for governor. Later, she indicated she thinks pro-life women “don’t understand” abortion and she showed she has no understanding of the Kermit Gosnell case.
 
Davis has previously indicated she won’t announce until Labor Day, but one top Texas lobbyist indicates Davis is a definite yes on a gubernatorial bid in part because she would face a tough re-election battle in her state Senate district
 
Credible sources tell me that Sen. Wendy Davis will run for Governor in 2014 and not seek reelection to Texas Senate District 10. It will set up a high stakes match-up with Attorney General Greg Abbott in the November 4, 2014, general election.
 
Sen. Davis has been elected twice in SD 10, so it clearly is a winnable race — but tough. Sen. Davis is now a national figure for Texas Democrats, and a senate reelection run would draw in national money both for and against her. If she is going to have a tough nationalized race, she would prefer it be for Governor.
 
The last Democrat to be elected Texas Governor was Ann Richards in 1990. Since then, the Democratic nominee has received the following percentage of the vote: 1994 – Richards 45.7%; 1998 – Mauro 31.2%; 2002 – Sanchez 40%; 2006 – Bell 29.8%; 2010 – White 42.3%. Public Policy Polling released a poll July 2, 2013, showing General Abbott leading Sen. Davis 48% to 40%, and the same poll had Gov. Perry leading Sen. Davis 53% to 39%. Texas is still a deeply red state, and running for Governor as a Democrat in Texas is a steep uphill climb.
 
John Seago, lobbyist for Texas Right to Life, and Billy Valentine of the Susan B. Anthony List, both welcomed a Davis bid because they think she’ll lose.

Well, the fact that Perry, Dewhurst, and the GOP-lead TX legislature didn't take a stand to her antics says ALOT right there - meaning that apparently the Illuminati minions have(potentially) had plans to put her in higher office.

As for Life Site news, well, wish they would expose Prescott Bush's and Barry Goldwater's ties to Planned Parenthood around the time they formed.

In Austin, Pelosi praises Wendy Davis but doesn’t pressure her to run for governor

Hey look!! the Red Queen being praised by the Wicked Witch!


The minority leader in the U.S. House of Representatives was in Austin on Monday to attend a conference on the status of women in society and politics, but she did not press the state’s most popular female Democrat to run for Texas’ highest political office.

U.S. Rep. Nancy Pelosi, who was the first female speaker of the House when she held the job from 2007 to 2011, focused her attention on promoting equal pay for women, a better balance between work and family and access to affordable child care. But Pelosi, D-Calif., also took time to talk about state Sen. Wendy Davis, D-Fort Worth, who is pondering a run for Texas governor.

Davis gained global attention for a filibuster during a special session of the Texas Legislature in June that derailed — for a time — a GOP-sponsored anti-abortion measure. Her stand immediately inspired talk of her running for governor next year. Davis promised to announce her decision after Labor Day.

Pelosi, a favorite target of the Republican base, said Davis wouldn’t have any trouble raising the needed cash — about $30 million to $40 million — to run for governor.

“I don’t think that will be an obstacle,” Pelosi told reporters, adding that she thinks Davis is “brilliant” and “courageous.”

But the congresswoman from San Francisco said she hasn’t pressured Davis make the run for governor.

“I believe that people have to make their own decision,” Pelosi said. “I think she knows how much we all respect her, but it’s not really about what anybody outside the state thinks. It’s about what she thinks is possible.”

Wendy Davis tells Democrats she’s in

Texas state Sen. Wendy Davis and her advisers have begun informing influential Democrats that she intends to run for governor in 2014, according to multiple sources familiar with Davis’s conversations.

The Fort Worth legislator made a national name for herself in June when she mounted a filibuster against new proposed abortion clinic regulations. Texas Republicans ultimately passed those restrictions into law in a special session called by outgoing Republican Gov. Rick Perry.

Davis advisers declined to confirm that she will enter the governor’s race, but Davis consultant Hector Nieto said the senator has made up her mind about 2014 and will unveil her plans next week.

“Sen. Davis has decided what she will do and she looks forward to making that announcement with her grass-roots supporters on Oct. 3,” Nieto said.

State and national Democrats have wooed Davis over the past few months for the uphill campaign against Republican state Attorney General Greg Abbott, the presumptive GOP gubernatorial nominee. She signaled in an email to supporters this month that she would state her intentions for 2014 at an event at the beginning of October.

It would be a major shock to her closest allies if she were to reverse course before that event and opt out of the election.

Davis, 50, has trailed Abbott in early polling on the gubernatorial election, which will be the first open-seat governor’s race in Texas since 1990.

Well, I'm surprised there's little outrage over Houston's sodomite mayor.

With that being said - nothing surprises me here - she was given that platform to do those antics that night largely b/c Perry and the GOP-runned TX legislature allowed her to.

Democrat Wendy Davis running for Texas governor
10/3/13

HALTOM CITY, Texas (AP) — Democrat Wendy Davis promised a more populist and bipartisan state government in Texas as she declared her long-anticipated candidacy for governor Thursday, but she didn't mention abortion rights, the subject that brought her to national attention.

Speaking before a hometown crowd where she received her high school diploma, the Fort Worth state senator tried to stake out the middle ground, vowing to represent the working class and improve public education, economic development and health care to Texas.

"Texans don't want to sit back and watch Austin turn into Washington, D.C.," Davis said. "State leaders in power keep forcing people to opposite corners to prepare for a fight instead of coming together to get things done."

Davis has said that her experience going from being a single teen mother living in a trailer to a successful Harvard-trained attorney in the Texas Senate informed her political views. She said Texas needed to be "a lot less lone and a lot more star."

**What is it with all of these Ivy League grads in the national spotlight?

"Until the families who are burning the candle at both ends can finally make ends meet, we will keep going. Until the amazing health care advances being pioneered in this state reach everyone who needs them, we will keep going," she said to about 1,500 people at the Wiley G. Thomas Coliseum.

Davis then blasted "the current leadership" in Austin for creating a partisan atmosphere and appealing to the right wing of the Republican party.

"Texans deserve better than failed leaders who dole out favors to friends and cronies behind closed doors," she said. "It's time for a governor who believes that you don't have to buy a place in Texas' future. It's time for a governor who believes that the future of Texas belongs to all of us."

Republican Gov. Rick Perry has chosen not to seek re-election next year. The front-runner for the GOP nomination is Attorney General Greg Abbott, who said in an interview with The Associated Press on Thursday that Davis is too liberal for Texas.

Davis rose to national prominence in June for her nearly 13-hour filibuster against new abortion restrictions in Texas, but she didn't mention the subject Thursday. Instead, she talked about her 2011 filibuster to block passage of the state budget after the Republican majority cut $5 billion for public schools.

Davis' opponents plan to use her support for abortion rights to rally conservative Christian voters next fall. About 40 anti-abortion demonstrators marched outside the venue where Davis was speaking Thursday, and Texas Right to Life plans to begin airing an ad over the weekend that calls her an "abortion zealot."

**Here we go again...Churchianity is being lured into the dogfight!

Abbott called her filibuster "inconsequential" and sought to tie her to President Barack Obama.

"Obama's political operation is the muscle behind Wendy Davis' political operation," Abbott said. "She is an extremist with regards to imposing the kind of spending and regulation that's reckless for government."

If her defense of abortion rights angered the right, it inspired Democrats who urged her to run for governor in 2014 and reinvigorate a party that hasn't won statewide office since 1994. Her speech in the Legislature also added to her donor list, both in Texas and across the country.

"I thought the filibuster was inspiring and it seems like she really cares about people," said Amanda Fisher, a 24-year-old from Dallas. Fisher said she was considering volunteering for a political campaign for the first time.

At a watch party in McAllen, a city along the border with Mexico, retired hospice chaplain Elizabeth Gearhart said Davis could help Democrats.

"She's going to inspire everyone. She's especially going to inspire women," Gearhart said. "And there's a lot of us."

Davis must raise money quickly to compete with Abbott, He has already raised $25 million to her more than $1 million.

Experts say Davis and the political action committees supporting her will need to spend about $40 million to make it a competitive campaign in Texas, where Democrats have not won more than 42 percent of the vote in the last three elections.

But national Democratic support and changing state demographics give Davis a chance to end the party's 20-year losing streak in Texas, Democratic consultants say.

Davis' personal story — from a trailer park to Texas Christian University to the Harvard Law School — has captured the imagination of many of her supporters.

She was a successful attorney when she decided to enter politics by challenging a veteran Republican state senator in Tarrant County in 2008. She narrowly won that race and a tough re-election bid in 2012, when most voters in her district cast ballots for GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney.

Hegelian Dialectic strikes again

Anti-abortion activists mobilize against Wendy Davis in Texas

Texas state Sen. Wendy Davis became a national political star by standing up for abortion rights last summer — and conservative Texans in the anti-abortion movement say they won’t let her forget it.

The 50-year-old Fort Worth lawyer blocked a bill that banned abortions after 20 weeks of pregnancy in a dramatic, 11-hour filibuster at the state Capitol that attracted national attention and the adulation of abortion rights advocates in June. Despite Davis’ pink-sneakered filibuster, the bill eventually passed and was signed into law by outgoing Gov. Rick Perry. (The law shaves off four weeks from the amount of time a woman can legally access an abortion and might result in the closure of a third of Texas' abortion clinics because it requires providers to have admitting privileges at a nearby hospital.)

But when Davis announced her intention to run for governor in her hometown of Haltom City last week, the topic of reproductive rights did not pass her lips. Instead, Davis focused on investing in public education and emphasized her up-by-the-bootstraps personal story that even her fiercest opponents admit is appealing. Someone tuning in for the first time wouldn’t know Davis had become a powerful symbol for abortion rights around the country.

And that’s exactly what the anti-abortion movement is afraid of. Activists against abortion say their main mission over the next year is to remind voters what Davis’ filibuster was about in the first place. Social conservatives who previously never had to worry about a pro-abortion rights statewide elected official are now busily forming political action committees and readying themselves for a fight.

“Wendy will become a lightning rod that has two sides,” said Richard Land, a former leader of the Southern Baptist Convention and an evangelical public policy leader. “She will be as big a motivator for the pro-life movement as she will for the pro-choice movement, no question about it.”

Davis, a Democrat, has raised only $1 million compared to her likely Republican opponent Greg Abbott’s $25 million so far, and Texas is still a solidly red state, despite its slow move leftward due to changing demographics. But abortion foes say it would be a mistake to underestimate her.

“The whole effort this summer was a wake-up call,” said Kyleen Wright, the president of Texans for Life Coalition. “We’re getting ready to jump in and play at a different level.


Wright’s group, which was founded 40 years ago, is forming a PAC for the first time so it can buy ads against Davis.

“Wendy is so much more energizing because she is more extreme,” Wright said. “I think Wendy goes beyond anything we’ve ever seen before.”

The pro-life movement in Texas hasn’t had to contend with a pro-abortion rights governor since Ann Richards won the statehouse in 1991 and held it for a brief four years. (Richards’ daughter, Cecile Richards, is now the president of Planned Parenthood, which is backing Davis.)

“We will spend as much as we can raise,” said Elizabeth Graham, director of Texas Right to Life, another anti-abortion group in the state. They are running radio ads in English and Spanish calling Davis an “abortion zealot” who “believes terminating babies even halfway through pregnancy is OK.”

Davis also has to worry about the ire of national anti-abortion groups, who hope to use the race as part of a larger battle for the “fetal pain” 20-week legislation they’re pushing in state legislatures.

Marjorie Dannenfelser, president of the Susan B. Anthony List, says the group plans to use Davis’ race as a “springboard” to talk about the 20-week abortion ban, which it wants to pass nationwide. “It will be a high priority,” she said of the Texas race.

The anti-abortion movement’s work to pass 20-week abortion bans is part of a strategy to get the Supreme Court to overturn Roe v. Wade’s holding that abortions must be legal until the point that a fetus would be viable outside the womb, usually considered to be at least 24 weeks. (It’s unlikely that this tactic would work at the moment, because Supreme Court swing-vote Justice Anthony Kennedy upheld the viability principle in Planned Parenthood v. Casey in 1992.)

**That and Ronald Reagan, George HW Bush, and George W Bush appointing pro-abortion justices to the court helped cement Roe V Wade's holding as well. Hate to say it, but they missed the train a long time ago!

But Dannenfelser also says it would be a mistake to underestimate Davis’ ability to win statewide, even though she is currently the underdog. “The scenario where she wins is that enough money gets drilled into this campaign that people start to forget what the filibuster was about,” she said. “It’ll start to get a little fuzzy. ... Our job is to provide perfect clarity about how she became a candidate.”

That means showing voters footage of Davis’ filibuster “over and over and over again,” she added. (A recent fundraising email sent by San Antonio Mayor Julian Castro on Davis' behalf mentioned her filibuster on behalf of public education, not reproductive rights.)

Meanwhile, Abbott, the state attorney general who declared his candidacy in July, enjoys a “vital partnership” with anti-abortion activists in the state and nationwide, Dannenfelser said.

Abbott, who believes abortions should be legal only if the mother is at risk of grave injury or death, addressed the National Right to Life Convention in Dallas in July. “It is great to be in a room full of Americans who are fighting for the full arc of human life from conception until natural death,” he told the convention. “You are heeding the words of Jeremiah, who reminds us that the Lord knew us even before we were formed in the womb.”

Some Republican candidates like Abbott who believe abortion should be illegal even in cases of **** or incest have been painted as extreme (who could forget former Rep. Todd Akin and “legitimate ****”?), and it remains to be seen if the abortion issue could trip him up.

Pro-abortion rights leaders, meanwhile, say they have Davis’ back and do not believe her support for abortion rights will hurt her candidacy.

“Texans are really very much a live-and-let-live kind of people,” said Cecile Richards, the president of Planned Parenthood. “People in Texas have much bigger issues on their mind — jobs, education.”

Richards said she thinks Davis will pull it off, despite the odds. “This is definitely a David and Goliath race,” she said.

“Wendy will become a lightning rod that has two sides,” said Richard Land, a former leader of the Southern Baptist Convention and an evangelical public policy leader. “She will be as big a motivator for the pro-life movement as she will for the pro-choice movement, no question about it.”

FYI, Richard Land, like his fellow SBC colleague Rick Warren, is CFR.

Susan B. Anthony was an antichrist - she hated Christianity, and she even wrote her own bible(I think it was called "woman's bible", or something like that). But somehow her conservative supporters said she was a *traditional* feminist, and not some modern-day one. Roll Eyes

Celebrity Endorses Democrat Wendy Davis for ‘Governor of Houston, Texas’

Former ’80s teen icon Molly Ringwald has thrown her support behind Texas state Sen. Wendy Davis for governor. Sort of.
 
The star of “Sixteen Candles” and “The Breakfast Club” tweeted a photo of herself with the Democratic lawmaker who delivered a nearly 13-hour filibuster against new abortion restrictions in the state, with the caption: “Support this woman. The next governor of Houston, Texas.”

The Red Queen is starting a trend...

Former Abortion Clinic Owner Leads Democratic Candidates for Pennsylvania Governor

Want to know which candidate for governor Pennsylvania Democrats prefer? According to a new survey released today, the answer is a former owner of an abortion clinic.
 
Pennsylvania gubernatorial candidate Allyson Schwartz refuses to say if, when she ran an abortion business in the state, she would refer women to Kermit Gosnell’s infamous abortion facility. But she is leading all Democratic candidates for governor.
 
From a poll:
 

Things are pretty wide open when it comes to the Democratic primary for Governor. The leader is undecided, with 27% of voters unsure on who they want the nominee to be. Allyson Schwartz gets 21% to 17% for Jack Wagner, 10% for Rob McCord, 9% for Katie McGinty, 8% for John Hanger, 4% for Ed Pawlowski, and 2% each for Tom Wolf, JoEllen Litz, and Max Myers. With support split so many ways and so many voters undecided even someone like Wolf could come back to win given how important money and the ability to communicate statewide will be.

Schwartz, if she becomes the nominee, would face pro-life Governor Tom Corbett who, ironically, signed the law to stop any further Gosnell-type abortion clinics from operating and is holding the abortion industry accountable for following state law. Pennsylvania long looked the other way for decades as Kermit Gosnell killed babies in brutal abortion procedures that looked more like infanticides and ran a disgustingly dilapidated abortion clinic.
 
Schwartz co-founded and served as the Executive Director of an abortion facility in Philadelphia for 13 years. The facility performed about 1,500 abortions in its final year of operation before declaring bankruptcy.
 
Other area abortion clinics frequently referred women to Gosnell’s Philadelphia abortion clinic for abortions later than they would do. But the gubernatorial hopeful has been silent on whether hers did.

Corbett is also Catholic.

Why is it that the "good guys" here are almost always Catholic? Roll Eyes

Also - if Reagan hadn't appointed Sandra Day O'Conner to the USSC, Gosnell would have been flipping burgers as a profession for a LONG time now(instead of sitting in a small, uncomfortable jail cell).

Planned Parenthood President is Thankful for Wendy Davis Defending Late-Term Abortions

The president of the nation’s biggest abortion business has something to be thankful for this Thanksgiving Day — and it’s not friends, family or blessings from God.

No, Cecile Richards, in emails to supporters today and in a tweet to its members, thanked abortion activists. Specifically, Richards is thankful for Wendy Davis defending late-term abortions in Texas.
 
Richards is also thankful for their activism that led to forcing religious groups to pay for birth control and abortion-causing drugs under the Obamacare HHS mandate.
 
“I have so much to be thankful for this Thanksgiving, including Planned Parenthood supporters like you who inspire me every single day. I wrote a special message of thanks,” she wrote in a Thanksgiving email with an attached letter.
 
The letter says that while millions of Americans will be celebrating Thanksgiving with their families, she is celebrating with the pro-abortion activists who support Planned Parenthood, saying, “The Planned Parenthood family is millions strong and I’m proud and grateful to include you in it.”
 
Following the letter is a request for donations. The full text of the letter follows:
 

Dear Friend,
 
I’ll never forget the noise we made. For hours, Wendy Davis had spoken alone to defend women’s health. I was in the Texas Capitol rotunda that night watching this amazing display of bravery along with hundreds of supporters in orange T-shirts. Hour after hour, more streamed in on foot and bike and bus and every which way.
 
And as the clock ran out, your voices rose up. The Capitol shook with the sound of women and men chanting and cheering, standing up to protect women’s health and rights. Thousands more watched and joined in online. And even if you weren’t there in person…you were there.
 
It was an incredible, powerful, breathtaking show of support. And yet what really gets me is this: it wasn’t unique. You do it time and again, every single time we need you. And all of us at Planned Parenthood — doctors and nurses, staff and volunteers — we are profoundly grateful for everything you make possible.
 On Thursday, many of us will celebrate Thanksgiving with our families. For me, that family includes you. You’re family because you do the very thing that families are meant to do: you stick with us when we need you most, no matter what. The Planned Parenthood family is millions strong, and I’m proud and grateful to include you in it.
 
This year, that meant speaking out against efforts to give employers the power to deny women coverage for birth control — a fight that’s now heading to the Supreme Court. It meant making sure that millions of women in communities across this country will benefit from Obamacare and finally get the affordable care they deserve. And it meant that you stood with us in Wisconsin and Ohio, in New Mexico and Arizona, in Virginia and North Carolina — and, yes, in Texas.
 
Thank you for standing with us, for fighting beside us, and for being part of our family.
 
Cecile Richards

Texas Sen. Who Led Pro-Abortion Filibuster Is Getting Hounded After Her Comments on Children

Texas Democratic gubernatorial candidate and state Sen. Wendy Davis is raising eyebrows for her vow to make “investing in our Texas children” her first priority as governor.
 
Davis earned national attention in June with her 11-hour filibuster against a contentious state Senate bill outlawing abortions after 20 weeks of pregnancy.

Texas Lt. Governor Candidate Leticia Van de Putte as Pro-Abortion as Wendy Davis

In a deeply conservative red state, the few strong abortion supporters who dot the map of Texas are thrilled by one of Texas’s lieutenant gubernatorial candidates, Senator Leticia Van de Putte.

Van de Putte boasts a fairly consistent pro-abortion voting record; indeed, she boasts a D score from the state’s premier pro-life legislative organization, Texas Right to Life. If elected along with gubernatorial candidate Wendy Davis, the near future of women and pre-born children in Texas would be considerably more bleak than it is today, under the stalwart pro-life leadership of Governor Rick Perry.

Here is the full Van de Putte endorsement statement from EMILY’s List:

EMILY’s List Endorses Leticia Van de Putte for Lieutenant Governor of Texas

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today EMILY’s List, the nation’s largest resource for women in politics, endorsed Leticia Van de Putte for lieutenant governor of Texas. EMILY’s List has also endorsed Wendy Davis for governor of Texas. This is the first time in Texas history that two women will lead a major party’s ticket for top statewide office.

“State Senator Leticia Van de Putte is a tough and inspiring leader who has been a strong voice for women and families in Texas,” said Stephanie Schriock, President of EMILY’s List. “And now she’s ready to take her fight for Texans to the next level as lieutenant governor. For too long, failed leaders in the Lone Star State have gotten away with silencing women and ignoring the real needs of Texas families. But Leticia is focused on building a better future for Texas by standing up for veterans and small business owners. The EMILY’s List community – now three million members strong – is thrilled to support Leticia Van de Putte’s groundbreaking campaign.”

Leticia Van de Putte received her bachelor’s degree from the University of Texas at Austin, College of Pharmacy and was a Kellogg Fellow at Harvard University’s John F. Kennedy School of Government. Senator Van de Putte has represented the people of San Antonio in the state legislature since 1991. She has served on the Senate Veteran Affairs and Military Installations Committee where she has been Chair for the past 10 years. She is also a member of the Senate Committees on Business and Commerce, State Affairs, and Education. Senator Van de Putte served as President of the National Conference of State Legislatures from 2006 to 2007 and President of the National Hispanic Caucus of State Legislators from 2003 to 2005. She is an involved member of the National Assessment Governing Board and the American Legacy Foundation Board. Nationally, Senator Van de Putte served as Co-Chair of the 2008 Democratic National Convention. In 2013, Leticia was unanimously elected by her colleagues to serve as President Pro Tempore of the Texas Senate’s 83rd Regular Session. Senator Van de Putte famously demanded her defense of women’s healthcare be heard on the state Senate floor earlier this year. She lives in San Antonio with her husband Pete, has six children, and is a proud grandmother.

Leticia Van de Putte would help contribute toward a proud legacy in Texas. In 1990, EMILY’s List helped elect Governor Ann Richards, the first woman governor of Texas elected in her own right.

EMILY’s List, the nation’s largest resource for women in politics, has raised over $350 million to support pro-choice Democratic women candidates – making it one of the most successful political action committees in the country. Throughout its 28 year history, the organization has recruited and trained over 8,000 women to run, worked to elect 101 pro-choice Democratic women to the House, 19 to the Senate, 10 governors, and over five hundred women to state and local office. Since its founding in 1985, EMILY’s List helped elect 97% of the Democratic women of color in Congress, including every single Latina, African American, and Asian American Democrat ic woman currently serving. And during the 2011-2012 cycle, EMILY’s List had the largest number of members and donors in its history and raised a record-breaking $52 million dollars. With the help of this growing community – now three million members strong – EMILY’s List helped elect an historic number of candidates in 2012 including 19 new women to the House, six Senate incumbents, three new Senators, and 186 state and local officials.

It is imperative for the women and unborn children of Texas that pro-life candidates are elected next year. To find out how to support candidates who will be dedicated to life if elected, keep a close eye on Texas Right to Life endorsements and political action events.

Girl Scouts Suggest Abortion Activist Wendy Davis for “Woman of the Year”

Who should young girls grow up to be like? If you listen to the Girl Scouts, the answer is apparently they should aspire to become Wendy Davis, the state legislator whose sole claim to fame is standing up against a bill to stop abortions all the way to birth in Texas.
 
On December 18, 2013, Girl Scouts USA tweeted: “Incredible Ladies Who Should Be Women of the Year for 2013” and asking if anyone should be added to the list.

Is there anyone you'd add to this list? Incredible Ladies Who Should Be Women Of The Year For 2013 http://huff.to/1cPjrlU  via @HuffPostWomen
4:02 PM - 18 Dec 2013



These Are The Women Who Dominated 2013

There's no disputing that 2013 has been a pretty amazing year for women across the globe. In the spirit of the ubiquitous list-making that caps each passing year, HuffPost Live's Caroline Modarress...
HuffPostWomen@HuffPostWomen

The link goes to a column by the liberal Huffington Post, which promotes Davis and pro-abortion activist Gloria Steinem as potential women of the year. Are these really the kind of women the Girl Scouts want young girls to grow up to be?
 
Perhaps so.  Christy Volanski, a mother of two former Girl Scouts who created the website Speak Now Girl Scouts to expose the link between the group and the Planned Parenthood abortion business, explains the Girl Scouts have long ties to the Planned Parenthood abortion business.
 
“As a concerned pro-lifer who supported the Girl Scout organization for many years, as a girl member and as a troop leader, it saddens me to share the fall of this once venerable organization that to this day retains the support of so many wonderful women and girls, many of whom are unaware of what they are actually supporting. But families deserve to know the truth,” she said. “There are a lot of accusations in the blogosphere about the Girl Scouts. Some are fact, like the Girl Scout organization works alongside abortion providers and funds/promotes abortion rights advocacy groups.”

Wendy Davis’s Campaign Mocks Greg Abbott for Being Paralyzed

Wendy Davis’s campaign is mocking Greg Abbott for being in a wheelchair. No, I am not kidding. Back in October, Battleground Texas mocked Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott for being paralyzed and in a wheelchair.

I know both "political parties" are controlled-opposition, but nonetheless in years past in the state of Texas, something like this would be VERY unthinkable! Honestly, I really don't hear much concern over this in my neck of the woods.

You also can't deny that Davis has her NWO handlers.

Sen. Wendy Davis recalls struggle 'making ends meet' as teen mom
1/15/14

Wendy Davis, who grabbed national headlines last summer by filibustering an abortion bill in Texas, said the same perseverance that fueled her marathon session on the state Senate floor helped transform her from a divorced, teenage mom into a rising political star.

"I'm not an overnight sensation. I'm a Texan. And I'm a Texas success story,” Davis told TODAY’s Maria Shriver on Wednesday. “I am the epitome of hard work and optimism."

Shriver spoke with Davis as part of a week-long #DoingItAll series of stories focusing on the personal and financial challenges that many women in America face.

Davis became a household name after standing for more than 11 hours in her now-iconic pink running shoes to block a bill that imposed harsh abortion restrictions. The bill eventually passed, but Davis’ effort and her story resonated across the country.

Poor and pregnant, Davis got married and had a baby at 18. By 19, she was getting divorced and living in a mobile home park. Davis said those early struggles have shaped everything in her political and personal life.

“I've tried really hard not to put this in the rear view mirror. I've tried to keep it present,” she said during her first trip back to her former trailer park home.

While Davis attended community college outside of Fort Worth, she also worked two jobs to support her young daughter.

“I knew I was poor because of the struggles that I and my young daughter, Amber, were experiencing,” she said. “I was having a really hard time making ends meet, paying for my childcare, paying for a car payment, paying rent and making sure that I kept the lights turned on. Sometimes, it didn't happen.”

Her daughter Amber, now 31, recalled those days.

"I remember the trailer. It was very small and very bare. We didn't have a lot to live on," she said. "I remember staying with my grandparents a lot while she did go to school and go to work."

Davis eventually remarried and had a second daughter. She also applied to Harvard’s law school and got in. She recalled the day she received her acceptance letter.

“I came home. And on my mailbox was the big envelope. It was absolutely a dream come true,” she said.

Practicing law led Davis to politics. She served nine years on the Fort Worth city council before getting elected to the state Senate. Last year, she launched an uphill battle to become governor of Texas, where a Democrat has not filled the office since Ann Richards in 1990. Davis is expected to face Republican Greg Abbot, the state attorney general.

Evan Smith, editor in chief of the Texas Tribune, said Davis may have attracted widespread publicity from her marathon filibuster but that may not be enough to loosen the Republican stronghold in Texas.

"She's attracting a lot of attention nationally and internationally, but at the end of the day, the people who matter are the people in the state,” he said. “This is a conservative state, and so that celebrity outside is great. It helps, but it doesn't necessarily translate into votes."

**Conservative? Dunno about that, especially with all of these megachurches in this state.

Davis is proud of her long journey to personal and professional success, but expressed fear that other women may not be able to follow in her path, mainly because of the rising cost of tuition.

“If you told me today that I had to start over and do the whole thing again, I wonder whether I'd be able to,” she said. “And I worry that other young women like me in Texas can't.”

From her own website...(if she was first in her class at TCU, that would give her extra consideration for her application, but I still think she and Barack Obama under normal conditions don't get accepted to Harvard.)

...Raised by a single mother with a sixth grade education, Wendy began working after school at age 14 to help support her mom and three siblings. By 19, she was on her way to becoming a single mother, working two jobs just to make ends meet.

Knowing that education was the only path to creating a better life for her young daughter, Wendy enrolled at Tarrant County Community College. After two years, she transferred to Texas Christian University. With the help of academic scholarships, student loans, and state and federal grants, Wendy became the first person in her family to earn a bachelor’s degree, graduated first in her class, and went on to Harvard Law School...

I was in Boston 6 years ago(where Harvard is) - this city is VERY New Age(it's not that big of a city either) - as I've said in other posts, it also happens to be the birthplace of Mary Baker Eddy(founder of that New Age Christian Science - which is pretty heavily influential there).

I'm not saying everyone that gets accepted into Harvard is a Satanist or anything, but it seems like a lot of political leaders, "prominent" business officials, "prominent" community leaders, etc are groomed in these Ivy League colleges.

Wendy Davis' story may have misstated details

Associated Press
By WILL WEISSERT 13 hours ago

AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — Democratic state Sen. Wendy Davis' rise from a teenage single mother living in a trailer park to Harvard Law School is a centerpiece of her campaign for Texas governor, but some of the details of her personal story may be fuzzier than first thought.

Davis' critics said Monday that the small discrepancies suggest her past is not quite as inspirational as she has lead Texans to believe. Davis dismissed the issue as a baseless personal attack.

Texas hasn't elected a Democrat to statewide office since 1994, but Davis became an overnight political star with her filibuster of abortion limits last summer and so far has raised enough money that she could keep the race for governor close.

Davis, now 50, has long said she first took a job at 14 to help support her single mother and three siblings in Fort Worth, Texas. By 19, she was married and divorced with a child of her own and living in a mobile home.

After community college, she graduated from college at Texas Christian University and with honors from Harvard Law School. She later returned to her home state and built a successful legal career before jumping into politics.

But the Dallas Morning News reported Sunday that Davis was 21 — not 19 as stated in her online Texas Senate biography —when her first marriage ended in divorce. Also, Davis and her daughter Amber lived only a few months in her family's mobile home.

The crowd builds before Senator Wendy Davis arrives with other dignitaries for the Stand With Women  …

Things got easier financially when she married her second husband, attorney Jeff Davis. His income helped raise Amber and the couple's daughter together, Dru, as well as pay for her to finish college and attend Harvard. Jeff Davis also kept the couple's two daughters while their mother was studying in Boston and, when the couple divorced in 2005, he won parental custody and she was ordered to pay child support, according to the newspaper.

"My language should be tighter," she told the Morning News. "I'm learning about using broader, looser language. I need to be more focused on the detail."

In a statement released to the media Monday, Davis said that "the truth is that at age 19, I was a teenage mother living alone with my daughter in a trailer and struggling to keep us afloat on my way to a divorce." She also clarified that she didn't officially file for divorce until age 20 and that it wasn't finalized until the following year.

Davis didn't address how long she and Amber lived in a trailer. But Davis' statement did say her daughters lived with her in Boston during her first year at Harvard and that she split time between Massachusetts and Texas to see them after that. It noted that Jeff Davis "helped her fulfill her dream of attending Harvard by cashing in a 401(k)" retirement account but added that the couple took out loans to cover the costs.

Davis blamed Abbott, who Texas' current attorney general, for raising questions about her past. (cont.)

Read this recently too - pretty much all of these people in the national spotlight, IMHO, have manufactured backgrounds. It's pretty much the same "rags to riches" story we hear many, many times. I'm not saying this is the case, but it wouldn't surprise me at all if she's CIA.

Like I said before, yes, I know both of these "political" parties are one and the same and are working together, but nonetheless aside from maybe Anne Richards, I don't recall anyone on the far left like Davis that's gotten this much attention in this state of Texas. If she decided to run for governor, or another TX office, 10-15 years ago, this entire state would be throwing up red flags. But now? Pretty much indifference across the board, aside from a few chirps that is.

I think you can say this is a case of...

Jeremiah 20:4  For thus saith the LORD, Behold, I will make thee a terror to thyself, and to all thy friends: and they shall fall by the sword of their enemies, and thine eyes shall behold it: and I will give all Judah into the hand of the king of Babylon, and he shall carry them captive into Babylon, and shall slay them with the sword.

Yes, I know this prophecy is given to Israel, but nonetheless just think about the times we're living in.
