o-WENDY-DAVIS-570.jpgThis is bound to make some fundies' heads explode. Texas Democrat Wendy Davis has thrown her hat into the ring to be the state's next Governor and while she's famous for her filibuster over abortion rights, she's also decidedly pro-life.

Davis suggested that her views on abortion access do not mean she does not care about life.

"I am pro-life," she said, borrowing from the label anti-abortion activists assign themselves. "I care about the life of every child: every child that goes to bed hungry, every child that goes to bed without a proper education, every child that goes to bed without being able to be a part of the Texas dream, every woman and man who worry about their children's future and their ability to provide for that future. I care about life and I have a record of fighting for people above all else."

It's a common saying for liberals: The religious right is only "pro-life" until the child is born. Then they suddenly want to walk away and cut all of the social programs that will help the child grow to the best of their abilities.
