Wendy Davis: ‘I Truly Do Not Understand’ Why Texan Women Aren’t Supporting Me
“I truly do not understand how women can support his [Greg Abbott's] candidacy. He not only supports the closure of these clinics that will endanger women’s health across the state, but he’s also said that he wants to roll back the law even further.
He wants to make women’s access to reproductive health care illegal even in cases where a woman has been brutally raped; even in cases where a young girl might have been impregnated by her father in instances of incest. And his positions on these things are not in keeping with the positions of most people in our state. And he’s further shown himself to be against women’s interests in other regards.
He has said that he will veto an equal pay for equal work bill if one lands on his desk. He has shown a disregard for women in his own office paying them $6,000 less a year than he pays equally qualified men.”
