Former Texas State Sen. Wendy Davis was undoubtedly the focal point in the battle against the stateās effortĀ to ban abortions five months after conception. But if she wants to talk about āflagrant denial of reality,ā letās start there. Davis really believed she could parlay her 11-hour filibuster into a seat in the governorās mansion. That delusion was helped along by a fawning profile in Vogue magazineĀ and celebrity endorsements.
Davis is back in the news today, penning an opinion piece in the Texas Star-Telegram in defense of Planned Parenthood against all of the recent peaceful protests (i.e., āattacksā) against the organization. Again, speaking of a āflagrant denial of reality,ā the graphic undercover videos of organ harvesting released by the Center for Medical Progress arenāt mentioned, as if they donāt exist.
