Wendy Davis says she

She has previously expressed support for the limits already affirmed by the Supreme Court.

What a flip flopper.

Does she think she's going to keep raking in the dough from liberals now?

She's backing down to get more support.
All politicians do it and she's no different.

She will pander to whoever if it could get her more votes.

The filibuster that she did was never about the length of when an abortion can happen, it was about the bill itself and how it forced the closure of abortion clinics by requiring doctors to have admitting privileges in a Hospital in the state of Texas(it technically said within 15 miles of the clinic itself i think).

Im not sure if you didnt know that or if you are purposefully lying, but either way, you shoudl do more research.

It was 30 miles.

I'm not lying. I'm simply pointing out the discrepancies in what she said.

You must not be from Texas if you think the fillabuster and opposition to the law was just about the change form 24 weeks to 20.

Most women don't wait till the 24th week to abort. If they wait that long, most likely something has gone wrong with the pregnancy, which they would be allowed to abort after 24 weeks. All the 20 week mark does is move the third trimester late term abortion forward 4 weeks.

She previously opposed late term abortions except for medical reasons.
She has "changed her mind".

I didn't say it was just about that. I never even said it was primarily about that. But that was a huge part of the bill and she pretty clearly stated she supported the limits already affirmed by SCOTUS. Now she says she could support such a ban and that she thinks SCOTUS will revisit the viability issue.

So does anyone that accepts the Roe v Wade rulling. There are very few people that support abortions on demand whenever.

If SC ever changes viability limits we all will have to accept their ruling...kinda a moot point.

If she won she wouldn't have changed her stance.
But she lost and without doing this pivot she'd lose even more supporters.
She specifically addressed the 20 week issue with her opinion that Republicans were lying.
Now's she's changed her mind on that 20 week issue.

Pandering for votes.
