Liberals like to talk about common ground, about keeping abortion legal, but working to reduce the number. This seems disingenuous when a politician like Ms. Davis is lionized as a hero by the left for opposing legislation proven to reduce the number of abortions. Not to mention the new mayor of New York’s commitment to shutting down the very life-giving clinics designed to encourage young women toward options other than abortions.

I find it troubling that the liberal movement, so motivated by protecting the downtrodden minority, is such a willing participant in the slaughter of those who can’t defend themselves; namely, the unborn. This is particularly troubling in the wake of the murder conviction of Philadelphia abortionist Kermit Gosnell.

As one who believes each life, born and unborn, bears the image of God, I welcome the candidacy of Ms. Davis for governor of Texas. I say to my fellow Americans, let’s have this conversation. Let’s bring to light what really happens in the dark rooms of abortion providers around the country.

I have a feeling that the people of Texas will speak loudly for the majority in celebrating a culture of life.

This, I believe, is a cause worth standing for.
