Former Texas State Sen. Wendy Davis was undoubtedly the focal point in the battle against the state’s effort to ban abortions five months after conception. But if she wants to talk about “flagrant denial of reality,” let’s start there. Davis really believed she could parlay her 11-hour filibuster into a seat in the governor’s mansion. That delusion was helped along by a fawning profile in Vogue magazine 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., “attacks”) against the organization. Again, speaking of a “flagrant denial of reality,” the graphic undercover videos of organ harvesting released by the Center for Medical Progress aren’t mentioned, as if they don’t exist.
