The media’s “conscience on abortion” is profiting off of babies – in more ways than one.
Texas gubernatorial candidate Wendy Davis’ online campaign store is selling baby onesies for a $20 contribution. The messages on the clothing read, “Wendy Davis for Texas” and “Generation Wendy.” (Ironic for a candidate the media showcased as an abortion heroine.)
The product description read: “Let everyone know that you’re raising the next generation of Texas Democrats with this Wendy Davis onesie. Union made in the USA.” The baby sizes divided into 3-6 months, 6-12 months, 12-18 months and 18-24 months.
Other paraphernalia boasted messages such as “LGBT for Wendy,” “Latinos for Wendy,” “African Americans for Wendy” and “Women for Wendy.”
After her 11-hour filibuster against an abortion-restricting bill [a bill that would ban the abortion of babies capable of feeling pain], Davis surfaced as a media favorite – from MSNBC’s Karen Finney claiming Davis’s own abortions would “resonate with moderate women” to the networks offering Davis three times the coverage of the infamous Gosnell trial.
Editor’s note. Abortionist Kermit Gosnell was convicted of three counts of first-degree murder and one count of involuntary manslaughter. This appeared at newsbusters.org.
