Kirsten Powers: ‘I do not stand with Wendy Davis’; Blasts pro-abort fringe, media


Kirsten Powers is a fierce woman warrior for life. As Twitchy reported, she, like Brit Hume and Laura Ingraham, recently slammed the sickening hero worship of late-term abortion proponent Wendy Davis. She also engaged in an awesome Twitter battle with late-term abortion supporters.

Lady smarts, baby!

On Tuesday, Twitter was buzzing over Ms. Powers’ latest article at The Daily Beast.

That she did. Here is a sampling, but you really must read the whole thing.

One can assume I am also not the only woman in America who is really tiring of the Wendys of the world claiming to represent “women’s rights” in their quest to mainstream a medical procedure—elective late-term abortion—that most of the civilized world finds barbaric and abhorrent. In many European countries, you can’t get an abortion past 12 weeks, except in narrow circumstances. Gallup reported in January that 80 percent of Americans think abortion should be illegal in the third trimester, and 64 percent think it should be illegal in the second trimester.

If the majority of Americans oppose elective late-term abortion, why do we have Davis complaining to CBS’s Bob Schieffer that the male politicians who are championing the late-term abortion ban are “bullying women”? Maybe it’s she who is bullying the rest of us into supporting a view that is mocked by scientific advancement; namely 3-D sonograms. Maybe we should be thankful for the men and wonder what is wrong with the women who think protecting the right to abort your baby for any reason up to the 26th week is a “human right.”

Bam, boom and Amen, Ms. Powers.

In the article, she describes a baby at 25 weeks in utero (current Texas law allows abortion up to 26 weeks). The baby has fully developed hands described as “get ready for pat-a-cake.” Her nerve endings and brain are developed enough to feel touch.

These are babies that Wendy Davis and her supporters think should be able to be legally killed. This is what is being called heroic. Powers ends with this line:  “Standing for that is not heroic, and it is not something to be cheered.”

Indeed. But this is nothing new for the pro-abort Left: Sanctioning infanticide is what they do.


Wow. Great “arguments.”

Powers swiftly takes him to task masterfully.

Scratch a leftist, find a sexist every time. Just sit there and look purty, Ms. Powers, while the oh-so-smart liberal men will tell you what to think. And make him a sammich while you are at it.


Powers then blasted the swooning members of the media who have been worshipping at the altar of Wendy Davis.

Precisely. Wendy Davis and her supporters are the fringe.

Twitter users applauded Ms. Powers and rightly so:

We do too. Keep fighting the good fight, Ms. Powers!

And an exit question for the media:

Don’t hold your breath: Pro-life women aren’t the “right kind” of women, natch.

    Kudos to Powers!

    • Jeremy

      I am starting to like her more.

  • Grandma HeadInjury

    Finally, a voice of sense. From a woman. With a body. With rights. And not in lockstep with the murderous left….

    • AlmaAlma

      The murderous, salivating left.
      Kill, kill, kill, kill

        Just not with a G-U-N, lol!

    Powers to the people.

  • DarkKnight2016

    Now Kirsten is a Democrat I like

    • MuhammedAllah

      Shes “One of the good ones”!

    • Kate

      She’s an old-school Democrat- the kind with actual morals and principles. Sadly, they’ve all been replaced in Congress by Obama-zombies.

      • Jeremy

        That is true she is the old guard Democrat who actually stands for something.

  • Rulz

    Go Kirsten and Go TEXAS!

    Recall Davis!

  • peteee363

    pro abortion fringe media? I didn’t think abc, nbc, cbs, cnn, and npr were fringe?

    • trixiewoobeans

      Maybe on the “fringe” of responsible journalism.

  • brando

    She’s one of the few lefties with a brain these days

    • Paladin

      I agree. She frequently has an opinion that differs from mine, but she actually thinks for herself and comes to an informed and honest opinion. I can respect that.

      • Saar

        I’ll give her that, and she’s actually willing to have a thought out and intelligent debate about a subject with someone who disagrees- instead of raising her voice until it reaches a yell just to win by wearing someone down enough to walk away. (i.e. like most libs)

        Don’t agree with her 100% of the time but nice to see she has some conservative values.

    • Paladin

      I agree. She frequently has an opinion that differs from mine, but she actually thinks for herself and comes to an informed and honest opinion. I can respect that.

    • Jeremy

      Juan Williams is one of the worst an absolute Obama kiss ass

  • Alan Miner

    Just a quick note to correct some things said above. Kirsten Powers is still pro-abortion…only in the first trimester. She believes abortion should be legal — at least she did up until a few weeks ago when, during the Gosnell trial she reiterated her pro-abortion stance…just not as Gosnell and Davis envision it.

    However, I appreciate Kirsten Powers’ independence too. She is not afraid to stand up to the howling mobs of the left.

  • jukin

    Making a hero out of a woman that advocates killing a 7 month old baby is pure evil and so is the woman.

  • aztectrumpet

    Can’t find the tweet, but somewhere someone said abortion is a constitutional right because of Roe V. Wade, so there should be no bans on it. Yet liberals think the 2nd amendment is outdated and should be abolished?

    • Doug Williams

      You dare question a prog’s logic?

      • trixiewoobeans

        Off with his head! Lol!

    • Saar

      same argument with them standing on the children of newtown to try and advocate for gun control, as well as being mostly anti death penalty ‘because that’s cruel’ but it’s okay to kill a defenseless baby in the womb.

  • MuhammedAllah

    I know youre a lib, and youve come a long way, but baby, please let me have you for a weekend-Id knock out ALL the liberalism you have left! Just 48 hours with me, sweety, thats all I ask!

  • MarcusFenix

    I have to marvel at the oddity which occurs when someone who is Dem acts nothing like one at all. It’s kind of nice to see. :)

  • brando

    I guess being one of the few on the left with a brain also makes you one of the few attractive ones there. She’s lovely. =)

  • Damien Johnson

    Loving the article so far as I read it. But, when she mentions something must be wrong with women today that agree with Wendy Davis, I’m reminded of the fact that the other day I wrote a facebook status against facebook and two people, both male, liked it. It was great to see other men agree with me, but also saddening that maybe women didn’t seem to understand this.

  • Danny Wheeler

    I tip my hat to Kirsten Powers!

  • Doug Williams

    Its war on men now: HuffPo’s Vivian Norris just suggested a sex strike in Texas to pressure male voters into giving in to the feminist agenda:

    • archerb

      That would be awesome! I can’t think of a better way to end abortion.

  • Gallatin

    Kirsten Powers ✔
    @DumpandChase1 @AsheSchow Ahh here come the liberal men to tell me about how i’m not allowed to have an opinion they disagree with

    My favorite.

  • BAW

    I’m glad twitter and Twitchy are around to appreciate her article since the Daily Beast readers are attacking her like she’s a conservative. Definitely didn’t seem to get the excellent points she made. Although one comment did complain about providing ammunition to the opposition. Still, that means they knew she made good points but didn’t want them getting out. So still, didn’t get the fundamental right vs wrong arguments.

  • Bruce

    Most “liberal men” do these “pro-choice” blogs for two reasons:
    1) They do not want to be responsible for anything else but their own Burrito Grandes and video game controllers (definitely, not a child) and/or,
    2) They wanna get laid. They hope that, perhaps, one of their female social networking friends will notice what a “true believer” they are and give them a shot.
    Of course, their obvious rabid sexism usually seeps out, thus precluding them from actually achieving reason #2 (although, with all those Burrito Grandes, I am sure that they are achieving another #2).
    Kirsten, God bless you and your husband.

  • EastValleyConservative

    Kirsten Powers is what we used to call a Democrat. The average Democrat does not hold progressive/liberal beliefs, they see different ways to handle the ills of society and often lean towards larger government and higher taxes–but they are not the insane liberal/progressive who wants to tear down this country, dispose of all morality, and force the population into tax slavery. If we could get back to being Democrats/Republicans, we might stand a chance.

    • Mark81150

      Her kind still exists, they’re simply tuned out and vote D out of habit, most not even knowing what they are being used to do to this country.. Legacy democrats just assume their party is like them, but it hasn’t been since McGovern let the crazies on the fringe take over their party..

      The LSM has done a masterful job hiding from the public just how insane left the DNC has shifted, by screaming the GOP i9s now moved to the extreme right.. pure insanity, but half the public believes it.

  • kateorjane

    We made a big mistake when we let the Left spin abortion as a health issue rather than what it is – killing unborn babies. We’re supposed to allow murder of almost born babies because the mother can’t be bothered carrying the child to term?

    • Mark81150

      The polls however show the public is on our side, and isn’t buying the bullsh*t from the LSM.

      80%.. on the 3rd, 64% on the 2nd!… we’re winning the argument, and the left tries to make it look like the opposite is happening. Doesn’t work though, the more these freaks play the healthcare card, the more dishonest they look..

      People see ultra sounds.. and that technology is what’s killing the pro-death cult.

  • Blak~Jesus

    Mrs.Powers should realise……Nobody cares what you think…You work for FOX NEWS lady….Where facts don’t matter……there has been studies done by colleges, and it has been found that ‘fox news viewers are less informed than ppl ,who don;t even watch the news’…..Fox news, changes the facts and gives their opinion instead of the truth…So she has no credibility….

      You need to stop living in your mom’s basement. The mold is making you type like a stupid libturd.

    • Bruce Livingston

      source of these studies? No? Of course you made it up, facts are incompatible, who needs them? Name calling is much easier right?

    • Mark81150

      and those “studies” are liberal ginned up bullsh*t… they asked questions for an opinion, and if the opinion wasn’t liberal, they marked it as “uninformed”.. that study has been even debunked by WaPo.. it’s trash.. but what you you care right?

      You got your left wing nutjob ranting points, and facts don’t matter to the knee jerking idiot left..

      The party of unedumacation, and high school dropouts, convicts and felons.

      You people are friggin delusional, every conservative I know is up to speed on major issues, most of your COLLEGE kids can’t even name the Capital of Egypt, so go hump somebody else’s leg with you factless talking points Einstein…

      Fox does NOT change the facts.. MSNBC however DOES..

      No matter how many times you lie about it, it’s still a bald faced lie.

  • michael s

    I notice she didn’t ask if only Dr Steven Brigham wore pink sneakers.

  • Bruce Livingston

    Kirsten is one of the few liberals that speak some sense every now and then, never know what she’s gonna say about something.

  • Mark81150

    Her facts that the pro-life sentiment is overwhelming, isn’t even challenged, they simply call her names, and smear Fox..

    They’re both still in denial that many card carrying democrats are pro-life.. and still utterly stuck on dogma.. they are trapped in a mindset that can’t learn, can’t adapt, or “evolve” in any meaningful way.. Still their 60’s radicalism… and they can’t break free of it.

    when most Americans have, as science shows how well developed babies are at 20 weeks… they do see it as murder, religious or not. That these fringe activists would still deny the humanity they would destroy is no longer rational,… just screaming emotion..
