Flip-flop much? Wendy Davis should have a a new bumper sticker printed that says:
"Wendy Davis, Candidate for Governor & Lying Sack of Shit"
Check out her new positions on the issues this week.
WENDY DAVIS FLIP FLOPS ON ABORTION BAN – NOW SUPPORTS 20 WEEK BAN
“I would line up with most people in Texas who would prefer that that’s not something that happens outside of those two arenas. My concern, even in the way the 20-week ban was written in this particular bill, was that it didn’t give enough deference between a woman and her doctor making this difficult decision, and instead tried to legislatively define what it was.”
“The Supreme Court sets that viability and it probably will be revisited. It’s one that deserves that kind of reflection to determine whether that kind of constitutional protection should exist at a time period less than what it is right now. It was the least objectionable. I would have and could have voted to allow that to go through, if I felt like we had tightly defined the ability for a woman and a doctor to be making this decision together and not have the Legislature get too deep in the weeds of how we would describe when that was appropriate.”
WENDY DAVIS AGREES WITH GOVERNOR RICK PERRY
“I do believe that Governor Perry’s approach is a reasonable approach, that we as a state need to think about the cost of that incarceration and, obviously, the cost to the taxpayers as a consequence of it, and whether we’re really solving any problem for the state by virtue of incarcerations for small amounts of marijuana possession. I don’t know where the state is on that, as a population. Certainly as governor I think it’s important to be deferential to whether the state of Texas feels that it’s ready for that.”
WENDY DAVIS IS PRO-OPEN CARRY
“Obviously in Texas we have a culture that respects the Second Amendment right and privilege of owning and carrying guns — but we also, of course, have respect and understand a the rights and privileges of property owners to make decisions about what’s right for them. My position on open carry reflects my respect for both of those principles, and I believe that municipalities, school districts, hospitals, private property owners should be the ones that ultimately have a say as to whether this is right for them and their facilities.”
