Texas Gov. Rick Perry has a message for those hailing new liberal icon Wendy Davis for bringing down a restrictive state abortion measure: Enjoy it while it lasts.
Come Monday, the Texas Legislature will reconvene in special session, and enacting far-reaching abortion limits is a top Perry priority.
Davis became an overnight star this week after spearheading the filibuster in the state Senate, preventing the Perry-backed comprehensive abortion bill from being finalized before the session ended even though it had passed by 19-10. She earned praise from a slew of pro-abortion rights celebrities, from President Barack Obama to Lena Dunham; was a guest on the major news shows; picked up tens of thousands of Twitter followers; and sparked speculation about whether she will make a statewide run.
But if national trends are any indication, the liberal rejoicing may be short-lived. Eleven states so far have passed 20-week bans â€” or earlier â€” on most abortions. Four have been blocked at least for now by courts because they conflict with Roe v. Wade.
And in Texas, the political reality is strongly against Davis and her supporters.
