    It is only speculation at this point but there is discussion that late-term abortion activist Wendy Davis may replace Cecile Richards as the CEO of the Planned Parenthood abortion business. Davis is the former Texas state legislator who earned national infamy after she filibustered a Bill to ban late-term abortions. She then ran for governor and lost by a mile to pro-life Texas Governor Greg Abbott. She was so extreme on abortion that even many Hispanic Democrats who have never voted Republican before cast ballots for Abbott. Since losing the election, Davis has been on the speaking circuit and the...

    AUSTIN - Texas Democrat Julian Castro confirmed Sunday he is seriously considering running for president in 2020, and former state Sen. Wendy Davis left open the possibility she will take another run at the governor's seat in 2018. "I might," Castro told more than 350 people at a political conference near the University of Texas on Sunday morning. Davis' comments came at the same event.
  • Sandra Bullock Attached To Play Filibustering Texas Pol Wendy Davis In ‘Let Her Speak’

    The hot project du jour is Let Her Speak, a Mario Correa script that just got Sandra Bullock attached, subject to landing a director she likes. Bullock will play Democratic Texas State Sen. Wendy Davis, who on June 25, 2013, hit the national spotlight when, against extraordinary odds, she singlehandedly staged a 13-hour filibuster. Her stamina not only thwarted GOP leaders’ plans to enact one of the country’s most restrictive anti-choice laws, but resulted in the most far-reaching Supreme Court victory for reproductive rights in a generation.

    If you really want to know how bad the Democratic bench is in terms of candidates and role models, just look at this Cosmopolitan piece about Wendy Davis and what she did after her devastating and catastrophic loss to Republican Greg Abbott—sorry, Gov. Abbott. She went to Costa Rica, drank margaritas with her family, but she said the loss hurt. At the same time, she goes on about how 2014 was not really an indicator concerning whether Texas was trending blue, and she lamented on how her filibuster of a late-term abortion bill allowed Republicans to label her “abortion Barbie.”...

    Failed Texas gubernatorial candidate Wendy Davis is keeping an eye on the "electoral climate in Texas" as she decides when she should make another political run, she wrote in Cosmopolitan. Davis, in a piece on how she "came back stronger after losing" by over 20 points in her 2014 run for governor, says she still has hopes to run again for office some day. "I'm trying to figure out when I should put myself back out there, and when will the electoral climate in Texas be right for me," Davis wrote. "I want to serve this state," she wrote. "I...

    It’s been nearly three years since Wendy Davis stood in the Texas State Capitol and filibustered an abortion bill for 11 hours straight, buoyed by her pink sneakers, a back brace, and the knowledge that there were so many women outside the chamber watching her fight and cheering. The bill eventually passed, Davis later lost a gubernatorial bid, and she is now out of politics for the first time in decades. Throughout all of that, however, she’s proven that she’s more than willing to keep trying to get things done — even when the chance of victory seems to be...
  • Wendy Davis is Dedicated to Promoting Abortions With God’s Help: “By God, We Get Back Up”

    Since her humiliating defeat in the 2014 Texas gubernatorial race, Wendy Davis has not backed down from her abortion-fueled fame. On the contrary, she has double downed on her commitment to promoting abortion, referring to advances in the pro-life movement as getting “knocked down, but by God, we can get back up and we fight to see a new day.” Reading Jezebel’s new interview with the pro-abortion Texan, it is clear that getting clobbered in an election does not make Davis any less of a progressive darling. Jezebel lovingly describes Davis during her filibuster of a Texas pro-life law as...

    FORT WORTH — It’s not often a pair of shoes makes headlines. But the rouge red Mizuno Wave Rider 16 running shoes that state Sen. Wendy Davis wore during an 11-hour filibuster over abortion rights in 2013 dominated news cycles for days. Davis says she’ll never sell the actual pair she wore that day. But an identical pair of those shoes — in a box Davis autographed — is up for sale. The shoes are among the items in a moving sale Friday and Saturday, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at 2737 Calder Court, that offers a chance to...

    From the Texas Tribune: Intervening in what could be a landmark decision, the Obama Administration, state and federal lawmakers and medical experts asked the U.S. Supreme Court Monday to overturn Texas' 2013 abortion law, which could shut down about half of the state's 19 remaining abortion clinics. In 45 amicus briefs filed to the Supreme Court, opponents of the Texas abortion law known as House Bill 2 argued that restrictions under the law are unconstitutional because they impose an undue burden on women seeking abortions and would do little to improve women's health.

    2015 was a rough year for the abortion lobby. They saw a huge number of pro-life laws passed. For the first time in history, the Senate — along with the House of Representatives — voted to defund Planned Parenthood. And while the media tried valiantly, they couldn’t close the floodgates of negative information about the abortion industry. But while 2015 was a hard year for everyone in the abortion industry, some definitely had a harder time than others. Here are the four biggest losers in the abortion lobby for 2015. Wendy Davis Hey, remember Wendy Davis? She was crowned the...

    They say birds of a feather flock together. And the old adage appears to be playing out in Iowa, site of the first presidential caucus, where late-term abortion activist Wendy Davis will campaign for pro-abortion Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton. Davis’ sole claim to fame is that she filibustered a bill in the Texas legislature that would have banned abortions on unborn babies up to the day of birth. Texas lawmakers eventually defeated her infamous filibuster and passed the pro-life bill, but Davis has since continued her abortion advocacy, raiding money for and speaking on behalf of Planned Parenthood. Now,...

    Wendy Davis made national headlines in 2013 for filibustering anti-abortion legislation in the Texas Senate. Now the former Democratic state senator is poised for more national attention as the inspiration for a dramedy series in development at NBC. Written by Jennifer Cecil, the untitled project centers on a female Democratic senator who, after losing the Texas governor’s race, gets her world turned upside down. In the vein of The Good Wife, while she pieces her pride back together, she goes to work in the law firm of her best friend — a black male Republican — and discovers that with...

    What happens if you are a candidate for governor and you lose badly? Not just a mere bad loss but one of historically bad proportions following an absolutely horrible campaign marked by the cowardice of shying from previously well known positions. Well, if you are a liberal it could mean you can score a TV show based on the aftermath of your loss. Such is the case with Wendy Davis. The "Abortion Barbie" of Texas who mostly avoided that for which she was best known is the inspiration a "Dramedy" show based on life after going down to complete defeat after refusing...

    DURHAM, N.C. (AP) – Wendy Davis, the former Texas state senator whose 2013 filibuster against an abortion bill vaulted her to national prominence, is in North Carolina raising money for a political group affiliated with Planned Parenthood. Davis, a Fort Worth Democrat who ran unsuccessfully for governor last year, is delivering the keynote address at three fundraisers this week, with two slated Wednesday in Greensboro and Charlotte.

    Former Texas State Sen. Wendy Davis was undoubtedly the focal point in the battle against the state’s effort to ban abortions five months after conception. But if she wants to talk about “flagrant denial of reality,” let’s start there. Davis really believed she could parlay her 11-hour filibuster into a seat in the governor’s mansion. That delusion was helped along by a fawning profile in Vogue magazine and celebrity endorsements. Davis is back in the news today, penning an opinion piece in the Texas Star-Telegram in defense of Planned Parenthood against all of the recent peaceful protests (i.e., “attacks”) against...

    It was a derogatory term but maybe there’s a reason some pro-life people derisively called Wendy Davis the “Abortion Barbie.” Davis has come full circle from filibustering a bill that would ban late-term abortions. Now she has given the Planned Parenthood abortion business a $100 donation — less than 24 hours after it was exposed selling the body parts of aborted babies for research. SIGN THE PETITION! Congress Must Investigate Planned Parenthood for Selling Aborted Baby Parts On Twitter, Davis responded to abortion advocates who challenged her to give a matching donation to the abortion company.

They carried the hopes of thousands of Texans who came to occupy the halls of the capitol building during the summer of 2013,...
