Thank Wendy: For choosing life ^ | 7/11/13 | Lauren Enriquez

Posted on 07/11/2013 10:34:30 AM PDT by rhema

Pro-abortion groups such as Planned Parenthood and NARAL have rallied their community to thank pro-abortion Senator Wendy Davis, whose filibuster (and the pro-abortion mob incited by her pro-abortion senator-comrades) derailed SB 5, a piece of pro-life legislation that did not see passage in Texas’s First Special Session. SB 5 is now HB 2 and is currently looking for its final leg of success in the Texas Senate during this monumental Second Special Session called by Governor Rick Perry.

Abortion supporters and liberal media outlets wasted little time after Davis’s filibuster fawning over and gushing about the senator’s dedication to late-term abortion (of course, they use language such as “reproductive rights,” and “women’s health”). But the pro-life community recently became aware that Davis actually deserves thanks from pro-life activists, and for a very different reason. Wendy Davis set a pro-life example at the young age of nineteen, when she chose to keep her child despite circumstances that many would call “a crisis pregnancy.”

In light of this fact, pro-life advocates at Online for Life have started a website to “Thank Wendy” for her heroic decision many years ago. OFL encourages supporters to add their name to a letter of affirmation addressed to Wendy Davis, saying:

Before she donned her hot pink sneakers and became a voice for abortion supporters across the nation, Wendy Davis was a single mother at age 19.

Being a single mother raised by a single mother, the odds were stacked against her.

However, she worked hard to provide for her child, attended college and eventually graduated from Harvard Law School.

Today Wendy is a proven, successful lawmaker in the Texas State Senate.

Wendy’s life serves as an example to women across the country facing an unplanned pregnancy and the possibility of single motherhood. Through her story we are reminded that, even in times of uncertainty and challenge, women can raise children and be wonderful examples of success.

The concise letter reads:

Dear Senator Davis,

As an American who believes that all life is valuable and should be protected, I thank you for having the courage to bear and raise your own child when social pressure and personal circumstances were against you.

Your actions thirty years ago remind us that courage, hard work, and grace can overcome challenges, for both mother and child.

Today, I commit myself to helping the thousands of women across this nation who face unplanned pregnancies. Through the work of life-affirming pregnancy centers, community organizations and local churches, I will support these women in their time of need.

I will encourage women in crisis pregnancies to follow the example you set when you gave your child the chance at life.

Thank you, Senator, for demonstrating true courage and strength.

This debacle in TX has been very instructive. One can see how Satan has taken over in the death-loving abortion movement.

Today there was a story in the news that the Town Lake YMCA in Austin refused to let a group of young pro-life Christians from Houston come to that facility to take showers, as they had initially agreed to do. They had received one threatening call from a pro-death advocate, so they “didn’t want any trouble.” No wonder this formerly Christian organization now wants to be known as “The Y.” There certainly is nothing Christian about them.

What turned Wendy Davis from a decent young woman into a demented apparatchik for the death lobby? Bob

The dimrat party turned her.
Pro Lifers need not apply.
Clinton and Gore were prolife at one point.
I have heard that some in the party want her to run for Governor of Texas. Hope she does. She is a one trick pony.
