From the Dallas Morning News:
Wendy Davis said Tuesday that she would have supported a ban on abortions after 20 weeks of pregnancy, if the law adequately deferred to a woman and her doctor.
Davis, a Fort Worth senator and the likely Democratic nominee for governor, told The Dallas Morning News’ editorial board that less than one-half of 1 percent of Texas abortions occur after 20 weeks of pregnancy. Most of those were in cases where fetal abnormalities were evident or there were grave risks to the health of the woman.
This is a case of full reversal and retreat. Davis is starting to realize – belatedly – that her positions on major issues; abortion, gun rights and economics are not only wrong, but are contrary to what the vast majority of Texans believe. The implosion of her campaign continues to illustrate how poorly she was prepared for this challenge, and how inadequate she is for the task ahead. She has flipped on important issues of abortion, gun rights and economics. What remains?
Her pink running shoes are slowly turning into flip-flops. She is unfit to be governor of Texas, and she is starting to realize it.
