Finney Claims Wendy Davis’ Abortion Will ‘Resonate with Moderate Women’

‘For a lot of women, how she describes what happened — that’s how women think about it. It’s not so cut-and-dry as “I’m for it” or “I’m against it”‘

MSNBC’s Finney Claims Wendy Davis’s Abortion Will ‘Resonate With Moderate Women’ (NewsBusters)

It seems as though MSNBC is still trying to find a weekend use for Karen Finney after canceling her show. Finney, former DNC Communications Director and board member of NARAL, appeared on Up w/ Steve Kornacki on Saturday, September 7, to comment on news that Texas gubernatorial candidate Wendy Davis had an abortion 18 years ago. 

The former MSNBC host insisted that Davis’ abortion story could be a political weapon for the candidate who is struggling to keep up with her Republican opponent. Finney proclaimed that “from a political standpoint, it is something that I think will resonate with moderate women.”
