“Abortion Barbie” Wendy Davis, the liberal darling of the pro-abortion set and the new celebrity icon of the Girl Scouts, has been caught in a number of lies about her background. Davis, a Texas state senator who is running for governor and is touted as “a rising Democratic star,” came on the national scene when she opposed a pro-life bill that would have outlawed abortions after the 20-week mark.
The Washington Post reports that Davis had claimed she was a “divorced working mother living in a mobile home at age 19. Instead, she was 21, and lived in a trailer for a short time. Then after a stint living with her mother, Davis moved into her own apartment. At 24, she married Jeff Davis, a lawyer who, according to the report, helped pay for her final two years of college and cashed out his 401(k) and took out loans to help finance her Harvard law degree.”
Liberal positions almost always require a fabricated storyline. The majority of American voters are moved more by sentiment and emotion than reason. So when the facts don’t fit the narrative . . . lie. It’s OK since the cause is what’s important.
Don’t think these revelations will mean much to liberal voters. They will rationalize them away. To them, abortion is the centerpiece of what it means to be a liberal and a Democrat.
The 1973 Roe v. Wade pro-abortion case was based on a lie. Norma McCorvey was used by pro-abortion forces to bring a pro-abortion case to the Supreme Court based on a hardship case. Sentiment over facts.
“In 1969, at the age of 21, while working low-paying jobs and living with her father, McCorvey became pregnant a third time. She returned to Dallas, where friends advised her to assert falsely that she had been raped, as she would then be eligible to obtain a legal abortion (with the understanding that Texas’s pro-life laws allowed abortion in the cases of rape and incest). Due to lack of police evidence or documentation, the scheme was not successful and McCorvey would later admit the situation was a fabrication. She attempted to obtain an illegal abortion, but the respective clinics had been closed down by authorities.
“Eventually, McCorvey was referred to attorneys Linda Coffee and Sarah Weddington who were looking for pregnant women that were seeking an abortion. Whenever she told the lawyers that she was a lesbian, they were disappointed, so she also lied and told them that she was raped. She signed the papers, and thus began Roe v. Wade. As soon as she’d signed the affidavit, she served her only needed purpose and use for the trial. The case took three years of trials to reach the United States Supreme Court, and Norma never even attended one trial. In the meantime, McCorvey had given birth to the baby in question, who was eventually adopted.”
In addition to abortion, homosexual arguments were initially based on two false “facts”: (1) ten percent of the population was homosexual and (2) people are born “gay” having a “gay gene” or hypothalamus differences. Both are myths.
The same-sex choice population is under two percent and people make all kinds of sexual decisions, including choosing to leave the homosexual lifestyle. It’s similar to people choosing not to commit adultery even though they might have the desire to do so.
Liberalism is better described as Lie-beralism.
