Pro-abortion Wendy Davis promises to be generous — but with your wallet

Oh, and she claimed to have suffered mental health damage when a local newspaper dared criticize her when she ran for city council.  It sure looks like it was a frivolous lawsuit, but either way it reflects badly on her.

Back to the money thing.  Hopefully her run for being Texas Governor will be a big failure.  Abortion Barbie’s only claim to fame is fighting for late-term abortions and reducing the safety requirements for abortionists.  As you’d expect, Wendy Davis Will Be Charitable With Your Tax Dollars.

But that’s no surprise.  Studies show that by any measure — giving time, money or even blood donations — conservatives are more generous

What she is not hiding is that she is not a charitable person. She has demanded taxpayer dollars be used to fund her favorite causes, including aborting kids, but she herself refuses to put her personal dollars where her mouth and pink shoes are. Less than 1% of her income over the last three years — more like 0.6% of her income — has gone to charitable causes. But I’m sure she thinks happy thoughts toward charities. So typical of a liberal.

Attorney General Greg Abbott’s relatively paltry charitable giving generated a big news story. But Abbott still gave more than Davis. I wonder if the Dallas Morning News will write a story on Davis’s lack of charity or even investigate how many public sector clients her law firm has because of her position in the state legislature.

On Twitter earlier today, Wendy Davis tweeted, “As governor, I’ll always make investing in our Texas children my first priority.” Just remember, as a private citizen, she won’t invest in Texas children. But in the Cult of Wendy, all things are possible with your tax dollars — provided the kids are past 20 weeks.

I agree with the “bro-choice” guy on one thing . . .

. . . that some men like abortions because they think it improves their sex lives.  Via “BroChoice:” Man Complains Casual Sex More Difficult if Abortions Banned:

This week, Ben Sherman, a pro-abortion boy, took to his blog to explain the #brochoice movement.

He wrote that if abortion isn’t readily accessible, especially in his state of Texas, men’s sex lives are at stake. It was the ultimate form of male-chauvinism, yet NARAL and other pro-abortion women’s groups took to Twitter in support of the campaign.

Can’t believe this actually happened? Here’s what Sherman wrote to other men as to why they should be #brochoice:

“Forcing women to adhere to the anti-choice attitudes of state legislators forces men to do the same, and will have serious consequences both on men’s lives and lifestyles.”

“Your sex life is at stake. Can you think of anything that kills the vibe faster than a woman fearing a back-alley abortion? Making abortion essentially inaccessible in Texas will add an anxiety to sex that will drastically undercut its joys. And don’t be surprised if casual sex outside of relationships becomes far more difficult to come by.”

I appreciate his honesty.  His creepy, deadly, wimpy honesty.  He will gladly have innocent but unwanted human beings destroyed so his sex life can be just a little bit better.  He is a boy, not a man.

Women, don’t buy the lie that pro-lifers are anti-women.  Remember this “bro-choice” reasoning and know the real reasons lots of young males support abortion rights.  The early feminists knew this.  You should, too.  These guys do not care about you.

And remember this when pro-aborts try to silence pro-life men just because they are men.  If pro-aborts really thought that you must have a uterus to weigh in on abortions then they would dismiss the views of all men.  But when they gladly accept “bro-choice” support it shows that they are just using a rhetorical trick to silence their opposition.

Stay classy, pro-abortion people

Some great news:

The Texas legislature has finally passed a late-term abortion ban — as it would have last month, had a mob not taken over the upper chamber’s galleries and disrupted the legislative process.

This is the 20 week ban that 62% of people support, including females.

Here is a sample of what the pro-abortion forces have done.  Any resemblance to the blind men of Sodom is purely biblical.

The good thing is that the middle ground people can get a glimpse of who the extremists are.

Don’t think that this experience won’t stick in the minds of Americans, either. The pro-abortion activist front may have set back their own cause by decades.  That’s good news for unborn children — and also for people who love representative democracy.

Having said all that, guess which group I respect more?

  1. The pro-aborts chanting, “Hail Satan!”
  2. The false teachers who are pro-abortion while claiming the name of Christ.

Yes, you are right.  I much prefer group 1.

“Oh, it was just stabbings? Never mind.”

There was a recent set of stabbings at a local community college that just happens to be a few miles from us.  Mercifully, no one was killed or permanently injured.  My youngest daughter used to take classes there and some friends currently attend there.

The TV sound was off when I first saw the news in the locker room at 24 Hour Fitness over my lunch hour, so I assumed it was gun-related.  Fortunately the weapon of choice for the evil person was a knife and not a gun.

But why didn’t this continue to be newsworthy?  Where are the calls for bans on knives?  Oops — guns, knives and even clubs are already banned there!  Where are the calls for knife registrations and knife purchase background checks?  We all know that if guns had been used that the Leftist gun-grabbing ghouls and false teachers would have been trying to gut the 2nd Amendment before the bodies were cold.

Once again the students were set up to be victims because the law-abiding citizens were left unarmed.  Some heroes stepped in to stop the bad guy, but if they had been armed there might have been less injuries.  And if the bad guy had used a gun then many lives could have been lost because no one could have stopped him.

Capital punishment in the news

White Supremacist Gang Member Executed for Dragging Texas Man — I almost missed this due to the focus on the Georgia execution.  I am glad to see justice done here.

It seems ironic, though, that the crowd allegedly opposing “hate speech / hate crimes” (I say allegedly because they are the biggest haters in my view) typically oppose the death penalty.  Yet I’m for it in cases like this, so I supported a much stronger penalty than they did.

I repeat: For a crime that epitomizes hate and racism, I supported a stronger penalty than the hate speech / hate crime advocates.  They would typically oppose the punishment that I support.

These news items typically bring out the “Christians should oppose the death penalty” lines.  But the death penalty was God’s idea.  And He never apologized for it, and never overturned it.

Christians can oppose it in practice, if they think that it isn’t being fairly applied, but they shouldn’t oppose it in principle.

The Christians who insist you must oppose the death penalty always end up using bad reasoning. I’ve seen them use “turn the other cheek” (uh, it is hard to do that when you are dead) and other out-of-context passages to support their views.  I addressed this more in two posts — ineffective arguments against capital punishment / somewhat effective arguments against capital punishment.

Good news: Another Planned Parenthood manager quits and becomes pro-life

The next best thing to seeing someone convert to authentic Christianity: The new Abby Johnson?: Another Planned Parenthood manager quits and converts to pro-life (emphasis added).

In a press release from 40 Days for Life-Dallas, Ramona Trevino explains that although the particular Planned Parenthood where she worked did not perform surgical abortions, she was struggling “with [her] conscience . . . on contraception, abortion and [her] role in it all.”

Just like Abby Johnson, Trevino credits a 40 Days for Life campaign outside her Planned Parenthood facility with helping her movement towards a pro-life way of thinking.

After the 40 Days campaign came to Sherman, she says she went from believing she was providing a service to women in need, to realizing that Planned Parenthood “treated women like cattle and how they only cared about making money” – a realization she says was “long overdue.”

 

Great progress on the pro-life front

Don’t let people convince you that political efforts aren’t making a difference in the pro-life movement.  Even with the most pro-abortion President ever, great gains have been made.  See Planned Parenthood of Arizona to stop abortions at seven clinics for an example:

Last week an Arizona appeals court lifted an injunction against Arizona’s 2009 Abortion Consent Act. There are four major components to the Act:

1. The abortionist must be the one reading the state-approved informed consent script, not a surrogate, and it must be 24 hours before the abortion.

2. Only doctors can abort, not nurses or midwives.

3. Aborting minors must bring a notarized parental consent form. Parents can now sue if their rights are violated.

4. Not only doctors, but also hospitals, pharmacies, and all health care professionals can opt out of committing abortions or providing emergency contraceptives for moral reasons.

No surprise, it was Planned Parenthood Arizona that originally sued for the injunction.

These look like pretty obvious controls that even pro-choicers should agree with, but they tips their hands that they are really pro-abortion when they oppose them.  Only a pro-abort would oppose parents knowing when their kids were going to have a serious surgery to kill their grandchild.  Excuses like “but the kids might get beat up by the parents” are meaningless.  Using that logic, teachers couldn’t send home bad grades, police couldn’t arrest kids, etc.
