Democratic candidate for Texas governor reveals abortions: report

Texas state Senator Wendy Davis speaks to supporters in Haltom City(Reuters) – Wendy Davis, the Democratic candidate for Texas governor who was catapulted to national fame last year for her 10-hour filibuster against abortion restrictions, revealed in her memoir she ended two pregnancies of her own, the San Antonio Express-News reported on Friday. State Senator Davis wrote in her book, “Forgetting to Be Afraid,” which is due out next week, that she terminated the pregnancies during the 1990s for medical reasons, the Express-News reported. She had her unborn child, Tate Elise, aborted in 1997 because it had developed serious brain complications and would “tremble violently, as if someone were applying an electric shock to her,” the Express-News said. The Express-News said it had obtained a copy of the memoir in advance.
