(LifeNews) Wendy Davis is continuing her campaign to reform her image as an abortion activist as she attempts to moderate her extreme views enough to placate a Texas electorate that is solidly pro-life. Davis has already downplayed her pro-abortion views and is attempting to focus on other political issues, and now she’s attempting to pull a fast one in her campaign for governor by declaring herself “pro-life.”
From a local news report about her campaign stop at the University of Texas at Brownsville:
It was late June when Wendy Davis, a state senator from Fort Worth, rocketed to national prominence on the strength of a 11-hour filibuster of a bill being considered that would indirectly lead to closing abortion clinics across Texas.

The story of her physical feat, and choice of pink footwear, made her a national icon overnight and led to calls from her supporters for her to run for governor, a call she answered in October.
