POWERFUL: Rick Perry says ‘unfortunate’ Wendy Davis didn’t learned from her own experience

Powerful words from Rick Perry on how every life is precious and should be given a chance to thrive, noting that even Wendy Davis, who filibustered the pro-life bill, was born into bad circumstances yet she prevailed. She says it’s unfortunate she didn’t learn from her own experience:

    Ms. Wendy is also a single mom.  By promoting abortion, she’s essentially saying that she wishes she had aborted her child.

    • notpilgrims

      Conniption Fitz She has a child. She didn’t abort her child. If she did abort her child, then why would she still have a child?
      Her filibuster was in favor of abortion rights. That’s pretty clear. She had abortion rights at the time of having her child.
      She *chose* not to abort her child, but she had that right. And if she did abort her child while it was still a fetus, what’s wrong with that? It’s her choice. She was just arguing for people to have that right, so how can you say it would have been bad if she used that right?

      • Orangeone

        notpilgrims Conniption Fitz Have you accessed all of Planned Parenthood’s records? Are you sure she hasn’t murdered her own children?

        • notpilgrims

          Orangeone notpilgrims Conniption Fitz She never murdered children. I can say that with reasonable accuracy.
          Did she ever have an abortion? To hear Rick Perry say it, and Rick’s supporters here, Wendy didn’t have an abortion, and her not having an abortion somehow confirms that Rick’s bill is the right thing.
          But now you are raising the point that she might have had an abortion? If we follow Rick’s logic, then her having an abortion would go against the idea that this bill is the right thing to do. It would prove that sometimes having an abortion is the right thing to do. 
          Why did Rick raise the fact of her not having an abortion in the first place?

    Well said Governor!  TKO!!!

  • freeperjim

    Leftwing kooks like Wendy Davis simply lack the intellectual gravitas to grasp reality and assimilate information into a cogent idea.

  • doofuschmartz

    Thank You, Governor Perry! That filibuster never should have made Senator Wendy Davis a Democratic saviour in Texas. Senator Dan Patrick (R), gave a synopsis of the events that took place in the Capitol that day. He stated that the whole event was a complete debacle which was perpetuated by the mishandling of the Senate by RINO Lt. Governor David Dewhurst who was beaten BADLY for the US Senate by Steady Teddy. They could have voted on that bill HOURS earlier, but because of Dewhurst’s mismanagement of the congress and his insistence on letting Davis’ filibuster continue, they failed to sign it on the 25th, as it should have been. Now Davis (who actually wore a Depends to avoid using the bathroom), is a “Rock Star”…where have we heard that term before, my friends?

    • notpilgrims

      doofuschmartz I mean, Rand Paul filibustered for 13 hours, too, and he got a lot of attention from that–and even some love from conservatives. Of course liberals were going to make Wendy Wendybag a hero in their own minds, but her political power only gets inflated when conservatives start talking about her, too. She could become the actually-doing-something version of Sarah Fluke.

      • doofuschmartz

        notpilgrims doofuschmartz NOT in Texas, Pilgrim…that bill becomes law on 07/01/13. The only ones who recognize her here are the Ma Richards leftovers…and sore loser, Dewhurst…

  • The Sentinel

    BAM! Excellent.
    I hope and pray that this passes!!!!

    • doofuschmartz

      The Sentinel  Rest assured, my friend, IT WILL! The Democrackheads will not have Trendy Wendy from Never Ever Land, she is silenced for 30 days. Moreover, there isn’t a single Texas Libtard with either the physical or mental capacity to filibuster for 24 hours straight, on topic, with or without Republicans present (their choice),  and Governor Perry can call UNLIMITED special sessions, until it is passed. That’s why they are trying to make something out of nothing about that stamp date now…

    • Orangeone

      uncmetsgal Perry has brought some of that on himself pushing for illegal aliens to have in-state tuition rates, which are all subsidized by the taxpayers and draws more illegal aliens to TX, recruits in blue states like CA!

        • Orangeone

          doofuschmartz Orangeone uncmetsgal And it’s deserved.  You don’t destroy a good thing, you are careful to safeguard and protect it. Good Conservative-owned businesses will move to TX, but now many, including me, are shy to do so because of the illegals and influx of Dems that drown CO.

    • doofuschmartz

      KenHill I was a Perry supporter last election, and VERY disappointed he didn’t go further in the campaign. Unfortunately he has some questionable opinions on Amnesty that make me squeamish. I would only vote for him if Ted Cruz or Rand Paul do not run…

      • Orangeone

        doofuschmartz KenHill Rand Paul is also pro-amnesty.  At least he wised up, hopefully after Ted Cruz knocked a bit of sense into him, and voted no.

        • notpilgrims

          Orangeone doofuschmartz KenHill Being pro immigration reform bill in and of itself isn’t a reason to vote against someone. There are lots of other issues, and, in fact, the immigration reform bill includes a number of good provisions like border control provisions. Anyway, even if you disagree with it, you can still look at the full range of issues.

        • doofuschmartz

          Orangeone doofuschmartz KenHill I really, really want to see Ted Cruz run for President. Actually, I think every Tea Party patriot out there wants him to run. He has remained consistent and most of all UNDAUNTED and seemingly IMPERVIOUS to all the attacks from the left. Every time they attack, he grows bolder, not weaker! We need to mount a campaign to call his office every time that happens, and send money (even if it’s just a buck or two), to let him know we got his back…As for Rand Paul, I believe you’re right. I think he was starting to vacillate between solidarity with Cruz and Rubio…thankfully, I believe he saw that Rubio was too pro-Amnesty and at odds with most of his base. IT WILL come back to bite  him…

        • Laurel A

          notpilgrims Orangeone doofuschmartz KenHill Yes it is. Depends on where you live and how strongly you think about the issue. Who are you to tell people what is and isn’t enough reason to support something?!

  • jgilman

    This woman used a catheter to get through the fillibuster, yet she complains the republicans want to get in her vagina. Nothing like allowing yourself to be violated for political gain. She is disgusting.

    • Orangeone

      jgilman That’s actually common in filibusters but I agree she plays both sides.

      • notpilgrims

        Orangeone jgilman When did she play the anti-abortion rights side? She has never been anti-abortion rights. She’s been consistent.

        • Orangeone

        • notpilgrims

          Orangeone notpilgrims jgilman She used a catheter? What does that have to do with being pro-abortion? What does that have to do with “letting yourself be violated for political gain”? She did it voluntarily. You don’t even know what “letting yourself be violated” means.

    • notpilgrims

      jgilman She gave a really long filibuster because she disagreed with the bill. She used a catheter out of her own choice.
      Harry Reid, of course, opposes her right to filibuster, as Harry Reid has tried to gut the filibuster, and Harry Reid labeled her an “obstructionist.”

      • Orangeone

        notpilgrims jgilman Rand Paul’s filibuster was longer and HE DID NOT use a catheter.

        • notpilgrims

          Orangeone notpilgrims jgilman Both of their rants were really long. I read that Wendy’s was 13 hours, similar to that of Rand’s. If you think that being longer is a positive, then would you support Wendy if she ranted for 14 hours?

        • notpilgrims

          Orangeone notpilgrims jgilman You obviously don’t get sarcasm. Harry Reid is a socialist Democrat attacking Republicans for using the filibuster. Now socialist Democrats are supporting this lady for using the filibuster. Something is wrong with their thought process.

      • brjohnson

        You know I have a problem with the trailer-trash label, I was the first generation of trailer-trash since my father who fought in WWII on the Intrepid Aircraft carrier (look that history up, I am lucky to be here) worked as a steamfitter after the war moving from job to job. I hated living in that damned beer can but there are thousands of people who start in those humble abodes on wheels that are successful, wonderfully conservative folks. I have met more Shanks from suburbia than I met in those trailer parks.

        • Laurel A

          brjohnson Well said!

        • doofuschmartz

          brjohnson Sir, you seriously misunderstand the sentiment. First of all, I, too came from extremely impoverished circumstances (a trailer would have probaly been a step-up from the dumpy shack we grew up in). I was one of twelve kids, growing up on a farm in the Carter Depression Era. Now THAT WAS POVERTY. When I used the term “Trailer-trash skank, ” I was not, by any stretch of the imagination, putting down her poverty. That would have been hypocritical in the extreme. Nor, in fact, do I condescend anyone who was or is poor now. I am not rich myself…not in an economic or financial sense anyway. I cannot complain about my lot in life, but I have to work hard like most Americans to pay the bills, etc…
          No, the term “Trailer-trash skank” is one that refers to the reprobate morality of a person…PERIOD! Did you not notice that I said Senator Davis IS a Trailer-Trash Skank? I did not say she WAS, I said she IS a Trailer-Trash Skank! Does she still live in a Trailer? HARDLY…My guess is, a high-powered ex-corporate lawyer, and ambulance chaser like herself lives in the lap of luxury. She has, quite obviously thrown off the Trailer home trappings, BUT NOT the ethos of her low-life mentality. Perhaps the term “alley-cat morals” would have been more descriptive but   as an animal-lover, I did not want to offend any cats, alley-type or otherwise…trailers, on the other hand, are inanimate and can take the punch.

        • brjohnson

          I hear what you are saying, I do however have to point out that term was brought to the fore front by the Clinton attack team while defending the lying rapist against the women who were accusing him. I think we are all better than that on this side of the fence and lowering ourselves into the same gutter these losers roll in only dilutes our message.

        • doofuschmartz

          brjohnson I stand duly chastised for using the term then, brjohnson, but not for the indignance against Senator Davis’ hypocrisy. She has been made into a “Rock-Star” by the Democrats all over this country for the issue of killing fully formed, viable babies. Forgive me for saying so, bro, but I don’t feel like being too charitable towards people who can give birth to a child and then preach to the point of physical collapse about why women should be allowed to kill their own child inside the womb as if it is nothing more than yesterday’s fecal product…and all for the sake of her own personal and political aggrandizement…pathetic…sick…

        • brjohnson

          doofuschmartz brjohnson  
          We are brothers at heart when it comes to this abortion issue, I too am as outraged as you and become physically ill thinking about the murder of these kids. God only can fix the stupid of the woman and the people who voted her into office. Peace!!

        • doofuschmartz

          brjohnson doofuschmartz Yes, you are right…forgive me, my indignance got the better of me. I should be praying for Senator Davis instead of cursing her…I will try, Peace to you, brother!

  • notpilgrims

    Her own experience was that she had the right to abortion. She learned from her experience.
    EDIT: Some people are having trouble defining what a “right” is. I have the right to listen to Jusin Beaver’s “music,” but I don’t use that right. That’s what abortion rights activists call themselves “pro-choice”–they want people to have a choice on whether or not they want to have an abortion (but not on most other issues). Wendy Wendyson chose not to have an abortion by exercising her choice, whereas Mr. Perry’s bill would not allow for choice after the 20 weeks.

    • Laurel A

      notpilgrims Abortion is not a right. It’s murder especially partial birth abortion. For people who scream they love science they sure ignore the science of embryos, fetuses, babies, and birth in general.

      • notpilgrims

        Laurel A notpilgrims Abortion rights advocates argue for the right to have an abortion. Actually most Americans agree with them. That’s why Troy Aikan and Richard Murdock lost.
        You obviously didn’t read my post about the fact that Mrs. Wendy here had the right to have an abortion when she was giving birth, so her story of choosing not to have an abortion only furthers her support for the right to have abortions.

        • Laurel A

          notpilgrims Laurel A Are you dense? I did read your post and you just repeated it. There is no right to an abortion hence the reason the law is upholding limitations to it in state after state. You leftards think everything is a ‘right’. It’s ridiculous, disingenuous , and flat out stupid.
          And most Americans don’t agree with them. You best take a look at the polls for the last five years or so. Plus a poll last week showed a huge majority is against partial birth abortion…which is what Texas is working on banning. You can pretzel twist all you want but it won’t work. And BTW…I can tell you as a woman who has given birth and carried children full term that anyone having an abortion after even 12 weeks is one sick SOB because not only can you hear the heartbeat but that baby is moving and groovin’. There is a right to choose and I believe in it. I BELIEVE YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO CHOOSE TO HAVE SEX OR NOT HAVE SEX AND IF YOU AREN’T READY TO BE A PARENT DON’T HAVE SEX!
          Now stop bothering me with nonsense. If you have something of intellectual value to say then say it otherwise you are wasting my valuable time.

        • Laurel A

          And P.S. what you said basically is that Wendy is a complete and total hypocrite.

        • Insert_Cool_Username

          notpilgrimshttp://www.texastribune.org/2013/06/20/uttt-poll-texans-favor-ban-late-term-abortions/  According to this poll, the majority of Texans are in favor of banning abortions after 20 weeks of gestation.  Seems like that “most” argument doesn’t really hold up in Texas.  But I thought that we weren’t supposed to let the majority decide these things, so why would it matter even if most Americans support it?  After all, Prop 8 won the popular vote in California but it doesn’t seem like the majority’s view means a whole lot in that case.

        • badbadlibs

          Laurel A notpilgrims Laurel A, you are brilliant! Great post, thank you, thank you, thank you for speaking up and putting in it’s proper place the idea that a woman murdering her child is some kind of “RIGHT” guaranteed by the U.S. constitution! God bless you, girl!

        • notpilgrims

          Laurel A notpilgrims She had the right to chose whether or not she wanted an abortion. You didn’t respond to my post. You say some gibberish that doesn’t respond to my post, so the only possibility is that you didn’t understand the world of my post.

        • notpilgrims

          Laurel A notpilgrims People have abortions every day because they have the right to abortions. Similarly, people have a right to listen to Justin Beaver. Most people don’t listen to Justin Beaver, and most people don’t have abortions, because most people don’t need or want them.
          The law in Texas allows for people to have abortions up to a certain number of weeks. If you want to change that and not allow people the right to have abortions, then you should pass a law against abortions. That would be a really stupid law–and it would be ruled unconstitutional by the courts–but its the only way you can take away their rights. Because the current law allows people to have abortions. IF people don’t have the legal right to have an abortion, then why is Rick Perry trying to pass a bill taking away the right to have abortions? People ALREADY don’t have that right, as you said (falsely–you don’t know the law).

        • notpilgrims

          Insert_Cool_Username notpilgrims Abortion shouldn’t be banned after 20 weeks. It’s bad policy.
          You reference a poll. A number of people are against the abortion bill. Some people are in favor of it. Who cares? Do you ask someone else what your position on an issue should be and just copy them? “Hmmm… This poll says Obama is winning. I should vote for Obama!” “Hmmm… This poll says the public supports abortion rights (They support Roe v. Wade). I should support abortion rights!” If everyone was like you, then there would be no need for polls, because every position would have 100% support one way or the other. The sheep would look what the majority thinks and copy them.

        • notpilgrims

          Laurel A Laurel A Wendy had the right to have an abortion. She didn’t not have the right to have an abortion.
          Wendy wants to give everyone the same right she had: the right to have an abortion.
          Ironically, you are attacking Wendy for choosing “life.” Do you think “life” was the wrong choice? Would you rather have had her chose an abortion? Are you a liberal abortion rightsist?
          Summary: Wendy had the right to have an abortion. She wants other people to also have that right. Point out where she is hypocritical. Supporting the same position over time and not changing your position–which is what Wendy did–is hypocritical?

        • notpilgrims

          badbadlibs Laurel A notpilgrims Um… You just said @Laurel A was “brilliant.” … Maybe you’re confused. Laurel said that Wendy was a hypocrite because she supported abortion rights back them–which she had the right to–and she still supports them now.

      • PhillyCon

        Laurel A notpilgrims Yes, I have always found that part very interesting, the “anti-science” screamers.  B/c liberalism is based on emotion and “feel goodism” there will always be contradictions in practice.

        • Laurel A

          PhillyCon Laurel A notpilgrims What befuddles me though is how anyone can feel good about getting an abortion. Is it because they were able to hide bad behavior?

        • lawngreen

          Laurel A PhillyCon notpilgrims It’s because they can have sex without responsibility. Raising a child is a great responsibility, and selfish people want all the pleasures without any or the responsibilities.
          But there are always consequences to murder, even though they may be hidden from view.

        • doofuschmartz

          lawngreen Laurel A PhillyCon notpilgrims Truer words were never spoken, my brother! Every woman that I know of, both family member or otherwise, that has murdered her child  now suffers from obvious physical, emotional and psychopathologies. I have personally noticed that, in greater numbers they suffer from depression, insomnia, manias, mood swings, anxiety, etc… they take  pain killers, antidepressants, and anti-anxiolytics with very little noticeable effect…at least one of the women I know of is now a Lesbian…coincidence???

        • PhillyCon

          Laurel A PhillyCon notpilgrims Feminism has tried (or is still trying) to turn abortion into something to celebrate.  I don’t feel like linking it b/c the “opinion” piece is so disgusting … but a feminist wrote a few years ago why she decided to abort 2 of her 3 triplets.  It’s b/c she didn’t feel moving to Staten Island (burbs) and going to BJs for big sizes of mayo.  No.Joke.
          I personally these types [who promote abortion and are proud of it, i.e. Pelosi et al] are all dead inside.  I also think they live empty and meaningless lives … it’s why they constantly looking for fulfillment they will never find.  They may be winning the cultural war for now, but they are on the losing end of personal happiness and fullfillment.  It also explains the constant cries of “having it all” and “being a career woman” etc.  They are doth protesting too much.  (It’s probably the reason why there is a whole cottage industry dedicated to ‘finding happiness’ .. books like Eat, Pray, Love come to mind.
          Anyway, I didn’t mean for this to become so long winded.  But one thought lead to another.

        • notpilgrims

          PhillyCon Laurel A notpilgrims Abortion should be legal. Liberals don’t know shit about economics. Perhaps that is where you get the “feel goodism” of liberalism. You write about a non-existant “contradiction” with Wendy Wendy.

        • notpilgrims

          Laurel A PhillyCon notpilgrims People get abortions for a number of reasons: Maybe they were raped. Are you saying getting raped means “bad behavior” on the part of the victim? A rape victim is a victim, not a perpetrator!
          Maybe there was a medical problem and the abortion was necessary to save them from great harm or death.
          Maybe their fetus had a serious disability. One person at a hearing testified that her fetus had no brain activity.
          Maybe they accidentally got pregnant due to perhaps not using a condom or birth control. 
          All of those are legitimate reasons.

        • notpilgrims

          lawngreen Laurel A PhillyCon notpilgrims A lot of people like having sex. True story. I mean, people are attracted to sex because it makes most people feel good. Of course, sexual practice is very much a personal issue, so people–including liberals–don’t want to impose their sexual viewpoints on you. It’s an individual choice.
          But actually there are many ways you can have sex without getting pregnant: Such as using a condom and taking birth control.

        • notpilgrims

          doofuschmartz lawngreen Laurel A PhillyCon notpilgrims Actually a lot of women are perfectly fine with getting abortions. Recently a Democrat state rep of Maryland testified on the floor about how she got an abortion when she was younger and is better off for it. Lots of people testify about why they got abortions and why they are happy with the choice.
          Some people perhaps think they made a mistake. In America we are allowed to make mistakes. The government isn’t here to protect us from ourselves. Ban abortion because you think it will make people feel bad, and next you are going to be banning sugary drinks because it will make people fat and hurt their self-esteem.

      notpilgrims When is murder a choice which is allowed and celebrated????? I pray for your soul.

      • PhillyCon

        njmom notpilgrims The Left has euphemized murder with “choice.”

        • notpilgrims

          PhillyCon njmom notpilgrims I don’t know about you, but I never use the word “choice” to refer to “murder.” Are you saying that OJ Simpson was on trial for “choice”? You don’t even appear to know what “choice” means. Read my other comment.

        • PhillyCon

          notpilgrims PhillyCon njmom You are protesting way too much.  Obviously, the point I made was lost on you. I am very clear what “choice” means.

      • notpilgrims

        njmom notpilgrims A choice is something you decide to do. Every day there are millions of choices. What should you eat for breakfast? You have to choose. Anything that you can choose to do is a choice.
        It’s worth noting that abortion isn’t murder. Abortion is abortion. And it is a choice, because you can always choose not to do it if you don’t want to. If you want to you are legally allowed to.
        As for murder, you can choose to do it, but it would be a very bad choice, which is why few people choose to do it. There is no constraint stopping you from making choices–good or bad–outside of yourself.

    Wendy is a political opportunist who found a way to cheat at filibustering (leave it to Dems on how to figure out how to cheat) and it will bite her in the butt. She is using this in hopes of national prominence because she is going nowhere otherwise.
    It really is as Ronald Reagan said…”I notice all those who want abortion have already been born.”

    • Stehekin912

      Maybe she thought she could gain approval the way Senator Paul did…the difference is Senator Paul’s cause was righteous.  She should have better judgment

  • njmom

    God bless Governor Perry and every govt official as well as those who work in the right to life movement. The Lord is watching. May Ms. Davis and the others who favor the unrighteous act of abortion repent before they breathe their last because eternity is a very long time.

  • Army_Pilot1967

    My daughter is a single mother, but she never considered an abortion, and her son is the light of my life!!!!  I can’t imagine what my life would have been like had he not been part of it.  Of course, I would not have known what priceless joy he has given me and my wife had she aborted him….thank God she didn’t.  I just don’t understand why people don’t take precautions against pregnancy if they can’t stand the thought of producing a life…better to prevent pregnancy than to murder a fetus.

    • Political Pugilist

      Army_Pilot1967 Thank God she has you and your wife. Family is so important. I was widowed with 5 sons, my family stepped up to loved us and helped fill in the void of losing my husband and their father. This is why the Liberals want to destroy family structure, so people will be dependent on gov’t.

      • Army_Pilot1967

        Political Pugilist Army_Pilot1967   Good for you for raising a family following the loss of your husband.  I’m sure it was difficult for you, but I’m equally sure that you instilled a lot of important values in your sons’ lives by your example.  God bless you and your family.

      Army_Pilot1967 Excellent.

  • LouisLaGuardiaIII

    For those of us pro-lifers, it’s time to stop letting these pro-choice feminist try to bully us, and guilt us, and make it seem like we are ant-woman. We sat back and said nothing while they bullied and demonized Todd Akins and Richard Murdoch and now they are going after Gov. Perry. How many more of these Godly men and women who are standing up for life do they have character assassinate and demonize before we say enough is enough?! I consider myself a gentlemen, but I’m not afraid to stand up to any woman who would dare accuse me of being anti-woman simply because I care about the innocent life in the woman’s womb. Senator Davis and these pro-choice(pro-abortion) are way out of line and we need not be afraid to say it to their face.

        doofuschmartz Orangeone Me too!  And did you catch at the front end, a room full of warriors!  And did you catch his continuing “Abolish the IRS”? That is gaining him support with liberals.  And the comment he made about life being more important than campaign?  And the funny he made about his campaign team???? Slip??? Campaign team???? 2016  I pray!

    Way to go Rick. Stand your ground.

    My favorite Pro-life story was about a poor teenage girl from  a strict middle-eastern family and culture who, many years ago, found out that she was pregnant. She knew that if her family found out that she would be in BIG trouble. They were very devout in their religion and they had zealously instilled a rigid moral ethic in her about  sexual purity. Like all of the young women in her culture she was expected to remain chaste until she was given to her husband in marriage. Furthermore, she knew that the man she was to marry, the man she had been betrothed to from birth, would likewise shun her, or worse, call for her to be stoned for the sin of sexual immorality. What was she to do? If that young teenage girl found herself in this predicament today, without question, every feminist out there would insist that she must get an abortion…without telling her parents or her fiance that she was pregnant…after all, who needed all of the drama? But, of course, God would never have allowed the virgin girl, Mary to murder His Son,  who was to die for the sins of the world…in spite of all the militant feminist outrage….

  • 1tootall

    Good for him.

  • Always a Marine

    Truth is – life doesn’t matter to progressives.  This filibuster from this morally bankrupt woman shows how bloodthirsty democrats are.  The bill simply banned abortions beyond 5 months.  That’s not good enough for them – it removes too many and restricts the body count.
    One of the most disgraceful and disgusting public displays of depravity took place during the last DNC when the crowd stood while holding placards and cheered and cried out for more, and later abortions to be done.
    This “fundamental change in America” is showing it’s ugly face – a face that the left always shows eventually for tyranny and murder.

  • edrod

    Democrats are the sickest bunch of puppies in the USA. Democrats make Hitlers Holacost look like childs play. Democrats and American Whores have already surpassed the millions they say Hitler and his NAZI party killed. What the hell kind of record are the Liberal Democrats going for?.

    Word on the street here is that Wendy Davis plans to run for Governor. It sounds like Rick Perry is going to step down (not sure if he’ll make a presidential run), and will endorse Gregg Abbott (good guy) for Governor.

  • Boobie_The_Rocket_Dog

    Rick Perry was my favorite all along.  Still is, though Cruz is a good guy.
