The Texas law was spurred by the grisly case of abortionist Dr. Kermit Gosnell in Pennsylvania. Gosnell conducted late-term abortions in a substandard, filthy clinic. He kept souvenirs of his kills and he endangered the lives of women for decades. He is serving life in prison for his heinous crimes.

Davis told reporter John McCormack that she wasn’t familiar with the Gosnell case at all when she filibustered the law that was spawned by that case. Though Davis did claim that Gosnell operated his slaughterhouse in an ambulatory surgery center — which was not true, and which the Texas law that Davis opposed corrected for abortion clinics in the state.

So, Wendy Davis doesn’t do her homework, doesn’t understand the law she became famous for opposing, but now says she would support part of that law.

What are Texans supposed to make of Wendy Davis now?

Wendy Davis has either become thoroughly confused on what she really believes, has no core beliefs and does not really know very much, or she is just trying to confuse all of Texas with all of these absurd, near daily position changes.

She's doing what Liberals do: Say anything and do anything to gain power.

For a further explanation see "If you like your health insurance you can keep your health insurance".

Davis is the iconic consummation of the unfortunate truism: IT IS BETTER TO BE REGARDED AS A LIAR, IGNORAMUS,& ARRANT FOOL THAN TO OPEN YOUR MOUTH AND PROVE IT...

"(I)f the law adequately deferred to a woman and her doctor." - What the hell does that mean? If Ms. Davis is trying to win some sort of Olympic medal for doubletalking newspeak then she's well on her way to the gold. And she never heard of Kermit Gosnell? Well in one sense I can see her point because the press did all it could to keep that chamber of horrors as under wraps as possible. But Ms. Davis poses as an expert on "reproductive rights" so you would think that the Gosnell clinic and his subsequent trial may have appeared on her radar. At the risk of being perceived as sexist I think we have to admit that this is one creepy broad. Thye lust for power burns brightly in all liberals nowadays but it is positively aflame in the case of Ms. Davis.

Davis is going to get beaten so badly that she may leave politics altogether. Probably not, these liberals keep coming back for the punishment.

It is said, here in Texas, that this excuse of a candidate is running for Gov. because she doesn't stand the chance of a snowball in hell of being re-elected state senator...

Also, I got my email from the Texas State Rifle Association, and she rates a "D" which is just insanely low for a Texas politician.

Not meant as an opinion, but just for the info of you non-Texans, the filibuster she ran got a little more support because beside the ban on abortion after 20 weeks, it also did a lot to shut down first trimester abortion services by hyper-regulating the providers in a manner first used successfully in Mississippi, I believe.

The bill wasn't a clean "ban abortions after 20 weeks" so she actually did get some support from people who might have otherwise supported doing just that.

Also, as cfbleachers put so succinctly, there are many many iterations of Wendy Davis, none of whom are going to become Governor of Texas.

"it also did a lot to shut down first trimester abortion services by hyper-regulating the providers". The "hyper-regulating" required the clinics to meet the same health standards as your dentists office and have admitting privileges at a hospital.

Since the rule change, only 5 providers have closed - the one I'm familiar with was already closing because of significant financial misconduct and a lawsuit judgement against them. There are still 4 other non-profit providers and 2 dozen pay for service providers in the same city.
