Wendy Davis' Abortion Revelations Don't "Resonate With Texas Voters", Says Texas Trib Op Piece
"Davis’ stated experiences confirm what many post-abortive women feel: the emotional aftermath of abortion. Too often, the accounts of mental health problems and the extreme emotional lows after abortion are dismissed by those who profit from abortion and whose campaigns are funded by Big Abortion (Planned Parenthood, Emily’s List, NARAL, etc.). Perhaps Davis’ story will cause some in her own party and her political backers alike to acknowledge the toll an abortion takes on a woman’s overall health and well-being. In Texas, roughly 73,000 abortions are still committed annually. The women making these tragic choices are our mothers, sisters, nieces, friends, co-workers and fellow church members, and are all around us. Knowingly or not, we interact every day with women who have chosen abortion, and probably far more public officials than just Davis have walked the path to abortion.
"To stop the attempt to normalize abortion as a standard procedure, Molly White, a Republican nominee to the state House, has openly shared her story of past abortion. Unlike Davis, White has worked for decades in many countries on many continents to help women choose life. White has worked to expand resources for women so they won’t choose abortion and suffer the decades-long heartache and anguish that countless other post-abortive women endure, often alone and in silence. White has never used her abortion as a political tool; she shares her story in the context of women’s health care. Juxtapose White and her heart’s desire to encourage and support women with the Davis admission that “abortion was the answer.” Twice.
"...Politically, if Davis wants to win, she must redirect her campaign and focus on issues other than abortion when her extreme views on this subject are not embraced by the average American citizen and are repugnant to the average Texas voter. More importantly, if Davis wants to truly improve the lives of the average Texan, she should champion the value of every human being, no matter his/her ability or disability or whether he/she is born or unborn. But then she would sound a lot like White or, more important, Greg Abbott."

"After Abortion,...run by Emily Peterson and Annie Banno, two women who had abortions in the 1970s, ...tries to avoid the political tug-of-war that tends to come with this turf. They concentrate instead on discussing the troubling personal effects of abortion on the mothers." ~ Eric Scheske, Godspy contributing editor, in NC Register's "Signs of Life in the Blogosphere", 2/2006
"I would now like to say a special word to women who have had an abortion...[many are] aware of the many factors which may have influenced your decision, and [do] not doubt that it was a painful and even shattering decision. The wound in your heart may not yet have healed. Certainly what happened was and remains terribly wrong. But do not give in to discouragement and do not lose hope. Try rather to understand what happened and face it honestly. If you have not already done so, give yourselves over with humility and trust to repentance. The Father of mercies is ready to give you his forgiveness and his peace...You will come to understand that nothing is definitively lost and you will also be able to ask forgiveness from your child..."
