Wendy Davis Redefines ‘Pro-Life,’ Enrages Anti-Choicers


The National memo has the story Wendy Davis Redefines ‘Pro-Life,’ Enrages Anti-Choicers.

Poster of Wendy Davis definition of Pro-Life

“I am pro-life,” she told a University of Texas at Brownsville crowd on Tuesday. “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.”


This matches what I think the definition of Pro-Life is. If you want to put a fetus, a zygote, or even an ovum on a par with a child or an adult, you have some ‘splaining to do.

Fetus: a human being or animal in the later stages of development before it is born

Zygote: a cell that is formed when an egg and a sperm combine

Ovum: a female gamete : macrogamete; especially : a mature egg that has undergone reduction, is ready for fertilization, and takes the form of a relatively large inactive gamete providing a comparatively great amount of reserve material and contributing most of the cytoplasm of the zygote

If you want to let Texans know what you think, you can go right to the article in The Valley Morning Star and make a comment. It’s about time we tried to rescue “those people” from the bubble in which they live.
