Media Abortion Champion Wendy Davis Sells Baby Onesies

Campaign profits from babies – in more ways than one.

The media’s “conscience on abortion” is profiting off of babies – in more ways than one.

Texas gubernatorial candidate Wendy Davis’ online campaign store is selling baby onesies for a $20 contribution. The messages on the clothing read, “Wendy Davis for Texas” and “Generation Wendy.” (Ironic for a candidate the media showcased as an abortion heroine.)

The product description read: “Let everyone know that you're raising the next generation of Texas Democrats with this Wendy Davis onesie. Union made in the USA.” The baby sizes divided into 3-6 months, 6-12 months, 12-18 months and 18-24 months.

Other paraphernalia boasted messages such as “LGBT for Wendy,” “Latinos for Wendy,” “African Americans for Wendy,” and “Women for Wendy.”

After her 11-hour filibuster against an abortion-restricting bill, Davis surfaced as a media favorite – from MSNBC’s Karen Finney claiming Davis’s own abortions would “resonate with moderate women” to the networks offering Davis three times the coverage of the infamous Gosnell trial.
