It does NOT mean, “Only until you’re born. After that, f*** you.” (Teapublicans think that’s what it means.) No, Texas Politico Wendy Davis whups one upside America’s heads here and reminds us of the meaning of the word “life”:

“I am pro-life,” she said, borrowing from the label anti-abortion activists assign themselves. “I care about the life of every child: every child that goes to bed hungry, every child that goes to bed without a proper education, every child that goes to bed without being able to be a part of the Texas dream, every woman and man who worry about their children’s future and their ability to provide for that future. I care about life and I have a record of fighting for people above all else.”

State Senator Davis does not dish out political comfort food: she tells us what we need to hear, instead of what many of us may want to hear. This is an admirable charateristic in American politics, and an unfortunately rare one as well. Here’s to her, and here’s to being TRULY “Pro-Life”.
