Pink Sneakers

Not long after Texas state Sen. Wendy Davis’ now (in)famous 11-hour filibuster of a bill which would halt abortions after 20 weeks, Governor Rick Perry, at a national Right to Life conference, brought up a portion of the Democrat senator’s background:
'The fact is, who are we to say that children born into the worst of circumstances can't grow to live successful lives?' Perry had said. 'In fact, even the woman who filibustered the Senate the other day was born into difficult circumstances.

'She was the daughter of a single woman. She was a teenage mother herself. She managed to eventually graduate from Harvard Law School and serve in the Texas senate,' Perry continued. 'It's just unfortunate that she hasn't learned from her own example that every life must be given a chance to realize its full potential and that every life matters.'
Pro-aborts were quick to vilify the Governor; Ms Davis, who professed not to be angry with him, accused him of demeaning his office with the statement.

Fact of the matter is, Governor Perry pointed out something I’m sure Senator Davis’ pro-abort supporters didn’t want anybody to know (at least outside of Texas): that Senator Davis is a hypocrite.

Take a look at the last sentence of Senator Davis’ biography on her Texas Senate webpage:
Wendy knows that every Texan deserves the same opportunities to do better, and fights every day to ensure that Texas remains a state where hard work and determination are rewarded and where everybody has the chance to succeed.
Really, Senator?  How about the babies that are unwanted by their mothers?  Will you fight for their rights to the ‘same opportunities to do better’?  Will you fight for their rights to succeed? 

No, you won’t: you proved that by spending 11 hours demanding that mothers be allowed to abort their babies after five months of development in the womb! 

Hypocrisy, thy symbol is pink sneakers.
