Rick Perry is very disappointed that a grown woman doesn’t understand her own life and experiences in exactly the same way he and the attendees of the National Right To Life Convention do. First he defines what her life means, and then sorrowfully recounts how she just hasn’t learned the right lessons from his definition of her life:
Texas Gov. Rick Perry (R) on Thursday invoked state Sen. Wendy Davis’ (D) personal experience as the daughter of a single woman and a teenage mother herself to argue for the passage of a bill that would ban abortions after 20 weeks — legislation that was at least temporarily blocked earlier this week due to an 11 hour filibuster led by the Texas Democrat.
“Who are we to say that children born into the worst of circumstances can’t grow to live successful lives?” he asked in his address at the National Right to Convention in Dallas, Texas. “She was the daughter of as single woman, she was a teenage mother herself. She managed to eventually graduate from Harvard Law School and serve in the Texas senate. It is just unfortunate that she hasn’t learned from her own example that every life must be given a chance to realize its full potential and that every life matters.”
Yeah, Rick. Because that’s what she said over those hours and hours: “children born into the worst of circumstances can’t grow to live successful lives.”
They don’t listen to a single word we say. Thanks again to Davis for making that abundantly clear.
