"Wendy Davis Redefines ‘Pro-Life,’ Enrages Anti-Choicers"

"Wendy Davis Redefines ‘Pro-Life,’ Enrages Anti-Choicers"

I found this article on The National Memo about a speech given by Wendy Davis.
Apparently, she dared to give her definition of what it means to be "pro-life":
“I am pro-life,” she told a University of Texas at Brownsville crowd on Tuesday. “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.” “This isn’t about protecting abortion,” Davis explained in the same appearance. “It’s about protecting women. It’s about trusting women to make good decisions for themselves and empowering them with the tools to do that.”
Conseratives are throwing a fit about her definition of "pro-life"! Incredible! link
