Rick Perry Comes Under Fire for Attacking Wendy Davis: ‘She Was a Teenage Mother Herself’ (VIDEO)

In a speech at the National Right to Life Conference this Thursday, Texas Governor Rick Perry argued that state senator Wendy Davis, who gained national attention with her 13-hour filibuster of the Texas radical abortion bill, should have learned from her own teenage pregnancy experience to value “every life.”

In his speech, Perry suggested that Davis’ struggles with single motherhood should have left her with an uncompromising pro-life ideology:

In fact, even the woman who filibustered the Senate the other day was born into difficult circumstances. She was the daughter of a single woman, she was a teenage mother herself. She managed to eventually graduate from Harvard Law School and serve in the Texas Senate. It was 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.

Hear Perry’s comments in the video below.

    What an idiotic statement! There is no logical train of thought in his words only a pandered and carefully crafted piece of propaganda meant to fuel the zeal of the choir! Why is it whenever I see this clown I see in my mind’s eye a vision of Gomer Pyle digging his toe into the dirt and saying “oh, golly Sergeant”?

    Few pro choice people are pro abortion, but all pro lifers are anti choice.
