Texas state senator Wendy Davis became famous for filibustering an abortion bill while wearing pink sneakers, with a good deal of help from an unruly mob. The bill eventually passed anyway, but Davis became a pro-choice icon.
Then she admitted that she knew nothing about the Gosnell case. I guess we can safely assume she doesn’t know about the Planned Parenthood of Delaware nurses and supervisor who have been blowing the whistle about “meat-market-style, assembly-line abortions” at their clinic, either.
That’s typical of the lazy, dictatorial nature of “pro-choice” activists. They don’t think it’s necessary to know what they’re talking about, or consider a single word spoken by the other side of the debate.
The studied ignorance of the pro-choice crowd is a telling contrast with the tendency to accuse everyone else – men and women alike – of having no clue about pregnancy, and therefore no right to discuss abortion.
In related news, the very same people who thought calling Sarah Palin “Caribou Barbie” was hilarious are now working themselves up into a towering frenzy of outrage over Erick Erickson referring to Wendy Davis as “Abortion Barbie.” But that’s par for the course among the totalitarian Left.
