Wendy Davis attacks Greg Abbott on rape, but looks the other way for Planned Parenthood

Planned Parenthood Clinic Sign

Wendy Davis has released a new campaign ad attacking Greg Abbott for how he sided in an old state Supreme Court case. A woman was raped by a contractor for the Kirby vacuum cleaner company, and she and her husband sued Kirby — the rapist was a sexual predator, and Kirby had not run a background check on the salesman. Abbott, who was a state Supreme Court justice at the time, was one of three dissenting opinions, and felt that Kirby was not responsible.

In the ad, Davis insinuates that a company should be held responsible for the actions of their employees.


March 26, 1993. A pleasant spring day in Seguin, Texas. But for one woman, it quickly became a nightmare. A Kirby Vacuum salesman came to her door to offer an in-home demonstration. And while her children slept in the very next room the salesman brutally raped the young mother.

The salesman was a sexual predator on probation… but the Kirby vacuum cleaner distributor had failed to perform a routine background check on him.

The woman and her husband went all the way to the Texas Supreme Court. Fighting for their right to sue Kirby. Six judges – Democrats and Republicans – ruled in their favor and they won.

But Greg Abbott sided with the company against the victim. Saying the company had no responsibility.

Thank god, this time… Greg Abbott lost.

Abbott is currently enjoying a double-digit lead over Davis, which may be why she felt the need to exploit the rape of a woman as campaign fodder. But perhaps she should have looked in the mirror first, if she truly cared that much about protecting women from rape.

Wendy Davis has firmly established herself as a diehard supporter of abortion, and abortion activists have responded in kind by supporting her campaign. Planned Parenthood in particular has been throwing their weight behind her, pledging $3 million to get Davis elected. So here’s a question: why is it unthinkable for Greg Abbott to feel that Kirby wasn’t responsible for the actions of one of their employees, yet it’s completely acceptable for Wendy Davis to accept millions from the abortion industry, with its extensive history of covering up for child rapists?

Live Action’s undercover investigations have repeatedly shown that Planned Parenthood is more than willing to cover up child sex trafficking and statutory rape. But sadly, there are multiple real-life examples of abortionists and clinic workers looking the other way, with girls that aren’t undercover actors.

Indiana abortionist Ulrich Klopfer was caught covering up the statutory rape of a 13-year-old girl.

A Planned Parenthood clinic in Philadelphia was found to have hidden the statutory rape of six young girls.

20-year-old Stephen Lobb raped a 14-year-old girl, and then forced her to get an abortion.

40-year-old Adam Gault abducted Danielle Cramer, a teenaged girl, and held her captive for over a year. When she got pregnant, he took her to Planned Parenthood, where they performed the abortion and handed her back to Gault, no questions asked.

An 11-year-old girl was raped by her 17-year-old boyfriend, and Planned Parenthood likewise performed an abortion on her without reporting the abuse, and a 13-year-old girl was impregnated by her stepfather and also forced into an abortion.

Or in a particularly horrific instance, Planned Parenthood assisted serial rapist Tyler Kost in covering up his crimes with abortion, because they “didn’t want the hassle” of having to notify police.

But Wendy Davis has absolutely no problem whatsoever with taking millions from Planned Parenthood and other abortion advocates. So what is the price of her integrity, exactly? Does it have to be in the millions, or will a few thousands of dollars do? Does her slavish devotion to abortion run so deep that she’ll overlook the rape coverups that are endemic to the abortion industry?
