Wendy Davis Open to Supporting 20-Week Abortion Ban

CBS News reports on Wendy Davis’ recent admission that she could have supported her state’s controversial 20-week abortion ban. In an interview with The Dallas Morning News, she said, “My concern, even in the way the 20-week ban was written in this particular bill, was that it didn’t give enough deference between a woman and her doctor making this difficult decision, and instead tried to legislatively define what it was. I would line up with most people in Texas who would prefer that that’s not something that happens outside of [serious health risks or in cases of fetal abnormalities].”
