Abortion Barbie "On second thought"

File this under "I'll say anything to win and stay relevant".

Wendy Davis backs 20-week abortion ban that defers to women
Wendy Davis said Tuesday that she would have supported a ban on abortions after 20 weeks of pregnancy, if the law adequately deferred to a woman and her doctor.
Davis, a Fort Worth senator and the likely Democratic nominee for governor, told The Dallas Morning News’ editorial board that less than one-half of 1 percent of Texas abortions occur after 20 weeks of pregnancy. Most of those were in cases where fetal abnormalities were evident or there were grave risks to the health of the woman.
“I would line up with most people in Texas who would prefer that that’s not something that happens outside of those two arenas,” Davis said.
But the Democrat said the state’s new abortion law didn’t give priority to women in those circumstances. The law allows for exceptions for fetal abnormalities and a threat to the woman’s life, but Davis said those didn’t go far enough.~snip~
This seems to be recurring theme with democrats, this from the woman who couldn't even be truthful about her past. Modifying it to play to a particular demographic of women who see themselves more as victims.
Supporting open carry because...well it's Texas and now modifying her position on the 20 week abortion ban after pandering to the minority planned parenthood demographic that put her name on the map.
To many politicians ride the wave of fringe political beliefs to get themselves noticed long enough to throw the very principal they championed under the bus once they get publicity and money from the issue.

If presenting herself as the polar opposite of what she initially stood for will get her elected then she will misrepresent herself that way. Like any other democrat.
Voters need to stop falling for it.
