AUSTIN, TX, July 1, 2013 (LifeSiteNews.com) – The mainstream media got away with ignoring the Kermit Gosnell trial until a successful tweetfest using the #Gosnell hashtag forced coverage from outlets as diverse as MSNBC, CNN, Politico, and network news broadcasts. Now the pro-life movement is trying to dispell the notion that Wendy Davis speaks for most Texans, most Americans, or most women with a new tweetfest on Tuesday.
The Texas lawmaker became a hero to the progressive Left by wearing pink tennis shoes during her hours-long filibuster Tuesday night against SB5, a bill that would restrict abortion to the first 20 weeks of pregnancy and require abortion providers to meet the same level of health care as other surgical centers.
Tuesday's tweetfest will use the hashtag #Stand4Life to show broad support for the restrictions.
The event coincides with the hearing of HB2, formerly SB5, in the House State Affairs Committee. The hearing is scheduled for Tuesday, July 2, at noon.
Evan Smith editor-in-chief of the left-wing Texas Tribune called Davis a “folk hero” on the PBS NewsHour, likening her to the protagonist of the 1971 film Billy Jack.
Disgraced abortion facility owner Diane Derzis also praised Wendy Davis. Derzis had previously painted her office in Jackson, Mississippi, hot pink, when it was threatened with closure by similar regulations.
