Wendy Davis Discovers ‘Abortion Barbie’ Posters

Posted on 5/29/2014 by with 1 comment

Texas Democratic gubernatorial candidate Wendy Davis recently came upon life-sized posters of her head on a naked Barbie doll’s body, with a tiny infant doll in her stomach and a giant pair of scissors hanging ominously, and inexplicably, over a black baby doll to her side. The posters, which greeted David as she traveled to California for fundraisers last week, read: “Hollywood Welcomes Abortion Barbie Wendy Davis.” The posters were signed Sabo, a self-described conservative street artist who told the San Antonio Express-News he was paid by Kathryn Stuard for the work. Struad, a supporter of Davis’s Republican opponent Greg Abbott, confirmed this on Twitter. “I find it fascinating that my support of a talented artist is the story,” Straud wrote. “He is the story. Why hate that he expresses visually what u [sic] support.” Abbott, the Texas attorney general, disavowed the posters. “These posters are not affiliated with our campaign and we find them appalling,” Abbot spokesman Matt Hirsch said in a statement. Davis first rose to prominence for an 11-hour filibuster of an anti-abortion bill in the Texas state Senate. But abortion is not a top issue for Texas voters and Davis, trailing Abbot by 12.3 percentage points in a RealClearPolitics average of state polls has tried to focus her campaign on the economy, education and immigration. Abortion isn’t a top issue on her website.

One response to Wendy Davis Discovers ‘Abortion Barbie’ Posters

    Wendy Davis, on the campaign trail in Texas for the governor ship continued to embellish her bio today explaining, in her own words, why government sponsored and paid for abortion makes sense.
    “My mother was not covered by anything like Obamacare back in the day, and was forced to have the procedure in a back water hospital along the border to Mexico. She was a 12 year old pre-teen about to be mother living under a cactus somewhere on the plains until she was able to redeem enough bottles to pay for the procedure along with some help from her boy friend Bobby Joe, who had a big hat, but no cattle thanks to those greedy republican cattle barons who wouldn’t let a rustler get ahead through a little bit of re-distribution”.
