Late term abortion supporter Wendy Davis told a friendly crowd on Wednesday she was “pro-life.”

Opponents have many labels for Texas Senator Wendy Davis, but none would use this one: Pro-life.
That’s how the Forth Worth Democrat, who is best known for engaging in a marathon filibuster against a bill to stop abortionists from killing unborn children who can feel pain, described herself at the University of Texas at Brownsville yesterday.
Attempting to cast herself as more than the woman in loud shoes who temporarily derailed a state pro-life bill, she criticized Governor Rick Perry for not expanding the state’s Medicaid program and touted her putative support for the downtrodden.
“I am pro-life,” Davis said, according to the Valley Morning Star. “I care about the life of every child: every child that goes to bed hungry, every child that goes to bed without a proper education, every child that goes to bed without being able to be a part of the Texas dream, every woman and man who worry about their children’s future and their ability to provide for that future. I care about life and I have a record of fighting for people above all else.”
She added, “The battle over reproductive rights and women’s health care that was waged on June 25 was not a battle I chose.”
Nice try, Abortion Barbie.
