Isn’t it funny how the glare of public scrutiny can make people say the damndest things? Just a few months ago you were the new darling of the pro-abortion crowd and fighting to allow 20 week old babies to be killed. You were sitting on top of Planned Parenthood’s ‘A List’ and reveling in your new found fame. Fast forward to the present; you’re running for your party’s nomination for Governor of Texas, a strongly pro-life state, and all of a sudden you say you are pro-life. Forgive me if I don’t believe you.
Senator Davis, your filibuster of H.B. 2, and everything it stands for, cannot be justified as the actions of an individual on the pro-life side of the abortion debate. If you truly are pro-life, give back all the campaign contributions from Planned Parenthood and the rest of America’s abortion industry, and refuse additional contributions and support from them. Refute their claims that abortion doesn’t take a human life. Ask them why they feel they should be able to kill pain-capable babies and why their abortion facilities should not be held to the same medical standards as any other surgical facility. Ask your friends at Planned Parenthood why they would rather close clinics in Texas than comply with the medical standards H.B. 2 requires for their facilities and the doctors performing abortions at them. If they are truly concerned about women’s health don’t you think they would want to be held to a high standard?
Senator Davis, just in case you haven’t figured it out yet, when you tied your allegiance to the abortion industry you made a deal with the Devil. Once you jumped on board the pro-abortion bandwagon the blood of all the dead children in Texas was on your hands. Senator, I can’t see into your heart and I can’t tell if you have moved to the pro-life side, or if you are just saying what you think you need to say to have a chance of holding a higher office in a pro-life state. If your statement that you are pro-life was sincere, welcome to our side.
If you’ve had a change of heart, prove it. Work to close the doors of Planned Parenthood and every abortion mill in America. Speak out against the killing of America’s unborn children. Use your time in the spotlight to return America to a time when all unborn children are welcomed as the gifts they are. Use your platform to expose the ugly truth about America’s abortion mills and peel back the veil of secrecy they ply their deadly trade behind.
Senator Davis, until you prove otherwise, I’m not going to say you lied when you said you were pro-life but, in the words of Winston Churchill, you spoke in “terminological inexactitude.” Prove me wrong and I’ll happily stand shoulder to shoulder with you in the fight for our children’s lives.
As always, my letters to you are published on my pro-life blog at www.prolifepoppop.com. Write back and I’ll publish it, inedited.
