The 6 Most Amazing Facial Expressions From Wendy Davis

As I wrote on Wednesday, Texas State Senator Wendy Davis (a Democrat, duh) is a rock star. Not only did she stand for 11 hours to block a draconian anti-choice bill, she kept her cool in the face of some seriously ridiculous statements and actions from her opponents. 

1. When a Congresswoman Gets Confused

Rep. Jodie Laubenberg (R): "In the emergency room they have what’s called rape kits where a woman can get cleaned out ... The woman had five months to make that decision, at this point we are looking at a baby that is very far along in its development."

2. When An Anti-Choice State Senator Says He Loves Women

State Senator Eddie Lucio, Jr. explains he's anti-choice but also says, "I love women." 

3. When She's Told Abortion Laws Are Not Germane to Abortion Filibusters

When Davis brought up a Texan law requiring that women get a sonogram before obtaining an abortion, Republican State Senator Donna Campbell stood up and claimed the discussion wasn’t "germane" to the legislation Davis was filibustering. 

4. When Republicans Start Losing It

As the clock ticked towards midnight, Donna Campbell yelled at a security guard about the pro-choice protesters: "Get them out!... I want them out of here!" Republican Lt. Gov. David Dewhurst called the pro-choicers an "unruly mob using Occupy Wall Street tactics!"

5. When Rick Perry Tries to Make Political Hay Out Of Single Mothers

Rick Perry: "She was the daughter of a single woman, she was a teenage mother herself. She managed to eventually graduate from Harvard Law School and serve in the Texas senate. It is just unfortunate that she hasn’t learned from her own example that every life must be given a chance to realize its full potential and that every life matters."

6. When A Right-Wing Radio Host Tweet-Trashes Her

Laura Ingraham tweeted: "Question to 'hero' St Sen. Wendy Davis: Which kids that you see on the playground shouldn't be there?"
