Wendy DavisThe battle over reproductive rights and women’s health care that was waged on June 25 was not a battle I chose. When I believe women’s health is in danger, I’m going to stand and fight to protect that….

This isn’t about protecting abortion. It’s about protecting women. It’s about trusting women to make good decisions for themselves and empowering them with the tools to do that….

I am pro-life. I care about the life of every child: every child that goes to bed hungry, every child that goes to bed without a proper education, every child that goes to bed without being able to be a part of the Texas dream, every woman and man who worry about their children’s future and their ability to provide for that future. I care about life and I have a record of fighting for people above all else.

~ Pro-abortion Democrat state senator and gubernatorial candidate Wendy Davis, speaking in Brownsville, Texas, on November 5, as quoted by the Valley Morning Star, November 6.

Davis infamously conducted an 11-hour filibuster on June 25 to try to stop an omnibus pro-life bill that included a ban against abortions past 20 weeks.
