Fellow radio host Mark Davis, penned a column about Wendy Davis and her woe-is-me book she is out promoting as she runs for Texas governor.

“As with every book of its type and timing, from Democrats and Republicans alike, every word is intended to make every reader think better of her. That means there is no story told that she does not want told, no event framed in any manner other than as a willing acknowledgment,” Mark Davis wrote. “That includes her abortion stories, which are attracting reactions she had to know were coming.”

Pointing out that all she is doing is reminding voters of why she is on the scene to begin with: being an advocate for late-term abortion. One wonders why she’d reassert this issue close to the election when it polls so poorly in Texas. Mark Davis postulates that Wendy is trying to leapfrog the actual abortion issue and turn it into voters having personal sympathy for her.

“I believe Wendy Davis wants the sympathy of maternal loss as if her unborn daughter were hit by a car. She wasn’t. And her interpretation of the baby’s movements signaling to her sufficient pain to justify hastening the abortion? That’s just a ghoulish bridge too far,” wrote Mark Davis.

The column does a fine job discussing the issue in a caring and comparative manner but, it leaves out this point which I want to make: This move is consistent for Wendy Davis as most support for abortion seems to be based on the idea that the simple convenience of the woman has greater weight than the life of an innocent baby. With that type of gruesome reasoning, why not use one’s own chosen abortions to gain sympathy with voters.

This is similar, though more vulgar, than her attempt at gaining sympathy by claiming to be a young single woman who had to pull herself up by her bootstraps to make got through college. That story fell apart when it was learned that she’d taken a much different path that involved a man with funds doing the bootstrap pulling. Wendy Davis is the perfect Democrat, she is willing to paint herself a victim, despite her rather successful secular life, to gain public sympathy at every turn.
