Wendy Davis’ filibuster against late-term abortion ban repels Texas Hispanics

Wendy Davis’ filibuster against late-term abortion ban repels Texas Hispanics

Wendy Davis 2Embedded in the returns for last Tuesday’s primary election in Texas is an interesting lesson on the difficulty of holding even a minority party’s coalition together. State Sen. Wendy Davis achieved national renown for filibustering a bill prohibiting abortion after 20 weeks of pregnancy (a point at which many babies are viable outside the womb). She became a national heroine to many abortion rights supporters and attracted vast sums of out-of-state money, and those Democrats who have been hoping to “paint Texas blue” have seen her as a possible game-changer, even though in polls she runs behind Attorney General Greg Abbott.

But there are fissures in the Democratic coalition. Full Story Here

I am an anti-abortion Conservative white male. There, I said it!

I was raised as a Catholic, maybe that’s part of the equation, or, at least a big part of MY personal belief, but I am NOT now nor will I ever be pro-abortion for any reason except that of a case of incest, rape or certain death to the mother, if such can be a certainty.

I have 3 grown children and 5 of the most beautiful grandchildren you could possibly ask for. All I have to do is look at those 8 people and I know that abortion is wrong, abortion on demand, abortion as a matter of convenience is WRONG.

My kids and grands are not the only reason though, I was anti-abortion long before they came along, I was anti-abortion before my Son was born when I was 32 years old.

Let me say this in terms that even the most delusional Democrat can understand; Wendy Davis, aka; Abortion Barbie, is one of the most despicable, repulsive people I can call to mind if asked to give a list of my *Top 5*. I detest Wendy Davis; I look at her and I see PURE EVIL looking back. Any person that can *justify* abortion on demand, particularly late term abortion or partial birth abortion is simply a MONSTER, one that can never be allowed to rise to any level of power.

These numbers point to the conclusion that Davis’ stand on the abortion issue, wildly popular among the Democrats’ feminist left, is significantly unpopular among many Texas Hispanic voters — most of them probably Catholic, but including a significant number of evangelical and Pentecostal Protestants. National Democratic strategists may hope that Davis can build a Texas majority on a feminist-black-Hispanic base. But that Hispanic base looks shaky. What enthuses one part of a party’s constituency can antagonize another part. This is true of Republicans as well as Democrats. But when you start out in the minority, as Democrats do in Texas, splitting your party base is dangerous.

Truer words were never spoken.

The Hispanic population of Texas is, for reasons known only to them, mostly Democrat. I don’t even begin to have an answer for WHY, but that’s the way it rolls. The Hispanic population of Texas is indeed mostly Catholic, and as such, mostly against abortion in ALL circumstances.

Once you factor in the Conservative Anglo Christian female population of Texas you can see where a pro-abortion Democrat may be facing insurmountable odds right from the start.

I hear a lot of Texas Democrats rant and rave about how they are going to turn Texas into a BLUE state, some are even saying that this upcoming election may be the one that gives them a possibility, but they assure me that by 2016 Texas will be a Blue state in the Democratic column.

My answer to that is; BULL BAGELS!

Unless the Democrats can brainwash most of the Hispanic population, male and female, and can do the same with the Conservative Anglo Christian population, Texas will remain a solid CONSERVATIVE RED state for the foreseeable future.

This piece came out in the Dallas Morning News today;

New Republican group hopes to counter Wendy Davis’ appeal to Texas women voters

A Republican group aimed at countering Wendy Davis’ appeal to Texas women has launched a political committee and begun posting on-line videos to promote the idea the GOP is not an enemy to women on issues they care about. In a telephone conference call Tuesday and a news conference today, Davis has denounced GOP rival Greg Abbott as part of what Democrats are calling a Republican war on women. She has chided Abbott for opposing equal pay for women in court. As attorney general, Abbott defended Prairie View University against a lawsuit by a female professor who said she wasn’t being paid the same as her male counterparts. Abbott fought her claim of pay equity and won in the Texas Supreme Court, which denied the professor a jury trial. Full Story Here

The above piece has a definite anti-Abbott tilt to it, railing on about Ted Nugent, and I have to admit, Greg Abbott DID give the Democrats something to work against him when he took Nugent out in public, but if these GOP ladies want to counter Wendy Davis’ appeal to Texas women voters all they need to do is hammer Davis with her own words regarding abortion.

Words and opinions have consequences, and sometimes, MASSIVE repercussions; Wendy Davis needs to be made painfully aware of that little fact!

    The only thing I have to say to someone advocating abortion is, “Its too bad your mother didn’t have an abortion.”

    • TexasFred says:

      Amen John… I believe it was Ronald Reagan that said, “I’ve noticed that everybody that is for abortion has already been born.”

      I think we’re in great company!

  2. J. D. Longstreet says:

    You can add me to your company, Fred! Hope you’re feeling better!

    From what I understand, the law she filibustered was also designed to protect women having an abortion. The law would have required them to be close to a medical facility and have an actual doctor supervise the abortions. In her lust to kill babies, she most likely contributed to the death of some woman having an abortion that went wrong.

    Texas has too much going for it to elect the likes of her or anyone like her.

    As a Christian mother and wife this absolutely makes my stomach turn upside down.

    Life is not disposable.

    Let me burst a few bubbles, statistics, and stigmas out there. My husband and I were teen parents. We finished school, furthered our educations, and have built very successful careers for ourselves, careers that allow us to provide a comfortable life for our family, my husband Cody as a police officer and myself as a health care professional, careers that contribute to society. Again…we were TEEN parents.

    In 2009, we were expecting again. We were over the moon with excitement. That is until I became very ill at 26 weeks gestation, and was hospitalized. This ailment led to a 48 day coma and MANY terrible complications. Carrying this baby was killing me and it was killing the baby. At ONLY 27 weeks, I unknowingly gave birth to a 3.2 pound micro-preemie.

    Our sweet Carson had made his arrival. My husband was devastated. The doctors told him to begin funeral arrangements for the both of us. Then something amazing happened! That little human with translucent skin, thin enough to see his organs, began to breathe on his own! He was little, but he was strong. Slowly, but miraculously…I made it home to my boys.

    The summer of 2011 was another rough one for us. Despite using birth control necessary for my health, I was pregnant again. At 12 weeks we lost that baby. The angels know his name.

    I say all of this…because life is so very precious. At several points in our lives, parenthood was not the convenient choice. My life was changed, endangered, so very devastated with each of the 3 of the pregnancies I’ve endured.

    Never ONCE was abortion an option!! Not 1 time!!!

    I chose to conceive a child whether it was planned or not. My children are my most precious accomplishments. They didn’t ask to be here. How can anyone sacrifice such an innocent life for convenience? I will never support such a sick, SO sick, COP OUT!!!!

    I had every excuse to erase these pregnancies, and sweep them under the rug…had I been an absolute heartless and evil soul!!

    • TexasFred says:

      These were those foolish teens referenced in the comment from my Daughter Lisa, the comment just above this one, the teens that grew up, defied the odds and made a family..

      Carson, he wasn’t supposed to survive, Lisa, who almost died giving him life, Keith, the one that *many* would have aborted out of convenience and Cody, my Son in Law and the kids Dad..

      I am SO very proud of these kids, they made some mistakes but they were raised to accept responsibility, and abortion was NOT an option.

  5. Wayne says:

    I don’t know how people like W.D. can support abortion. I, like you, was raised a Catholic, and it has influenced my life as an adult. That said, I have been influenced by my affiliation with other groups that taught me the values of personal responsibility. Much to my dismay they too have caved somewhat to political correctness. I recently became a GRAMPS myself and have myself a grandson. Fred, it does something to you that I can’t put into words. I will have another grandperson in several months, it’s too early to determine the gender. I can’t wait to start spoiling Kevin (in a good way). Life is precious. Once we go down the abortion road, I can visualize genocide as the next PROGRESSIVE step.

  6. KrzyBeautiful says:

    Dad- Thank you! I love you.

    It wasn’t easy, but it was worth it.

    • TexasFred says:

      You were a work of love too Lisa…

      But what the hell, how many people had a 4 year old Daughter that stood in front of the house, singing at the top of her little lungs as she serenaded the whole street with every Reba McIntire song ever done to that point in time…

      You were worth it, you were ALL worth it… 🙂

    Mexicans are ethnocentric, and that answers the “why.” They too want their Free Cheese — to include welfare and cash and benefits and hey, why not bring my entire family into the US to bask in the glory of Free Cheese as well?
