The Houston Chronicle has posted an article on Wendy Davis’s new aspiration of “testing out professional speaking” after her gubernatorial effort in Texas bombed:

Davis, a former Democratic state senator from Fort Worth, recently began an “exploratory” relationship with the American Program Bureau….

“We’re trying to determine whether or not we can do the job for her, so we have not made any contractual relationship yet,” said Bob Davis, senior vice president at the agency.

The bureau primarily is pitching Wendy Davis to college and community groups as an authority on women’s health and education issues.

Rick Perry, Joan Rivers, and clinic regulations

by Carder Of course, Rick Perry isn’t really saying he truly thinks an abortion law like Texas’ actually might have saved Joan Rivers’ life.

She took a stand for all Texas women, and it was amazing. But what was even more inspiring? The thousands who stood with her, in Texas and across the country:

Stanek weekend question: Should pro-lifers embrace economic liberalism?

money-babyNew York Times pro-life columnist Ross Douthat pitched an interesting idea this week:

WHAT happens to a modern society when abortion is restricted? This question is at the heart of the debate over Texas’s new abortion law, which bans abortions after 20 weeks and issues health regulations that could thin the ranks of state abortion clinics, making even first-trimester abortions harder to obtain….

  • Governor Lincoln Chafee of Rhode Island vetoed a Choose Life license plate bill because he claims it violates the separation of church and state:

    Chafee wrote to lawmakers in his veto message that the function of a license plate is “to register and identify a motor vehicle.”

    “It is my belief that state participation in the transmission of funds to this organization would violate the separation of church and state, one of the fundamental principles upon which our state was founded,” he wrote.
