Wendy Davis trolls for Planned Parenthood speaking gigs in incredible shrinking woman video

2015-02-12_1143b

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.

Texas abortion allies try to “recapture the energy” they said they’d never lose

Texas pro-choice energy #fightbacktx

Would the magic last?

Three weeks after her infamous June 25, 2013, 11-hour filibuster, climaxing  days of demonstrations by proponents on both sides of the abortion issue, Texas State Senator Wendy Davis was asked that by a reporter at The Texas Observer. She responded to the affirmative:

Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast actually settled for $4.3 mil, not $1.3 mil, for Medicaid fraud

ppfraud-320x240Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott announced on July 24 that his office had obtained a $1.4 million settlement against Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast for Medicaid fraud, with the settlement to be split between the state of Texas, the federal government, and the whistleblower (former PPGC employee Karen Reynolds).

It turns out the AG was apparently only announcing his state’s cut. The total settlement is actually $4.3 million – almost $3 million more than previously known. From the Houston Chronicle today:

Perry calls 2nd special session; won’t let pro-abortion anarchy rule

imageI’m on vacation but have been following the drama in Texas, which this afternoon took an upturn after a scandalous pro-abortion cabal illegally disrupted democracy last night.

The Houston Chronicle’s lede is so misleading, but what else should we expect from MSM? In actuality it was a pro-abortion mob that blocked common sense, public supported pro-life bills, not a “fail”ure of the Texas Senate to pass “strict abortion restrictions.”

And where is a description of the illegal disruption from the gallery? But whatever, Governor Perry is ensuring democracy, not anarchy, rules:
