The Rest of the Story
Cindy Burkett and her supporters are bragging about Cindy making Planned Parenthood’s “Enemies List,” adding that her opponent, Senator Bob Hall, did not.
This sounds very serious. Bob Hall is a devoted and steadfast supporter of life from conception through natural death. Right?
What’s going on?
RINOs like Burkett tell us what they want us to know, and omit what they don’t.
So what’s she not telling us?
First of all, there is no “Enemies List.” There is a Chumps and Champs post on the Planned Parenthood Votes website and Cindy is listed as a “chump.” They are upset over her sponsorship of SB 8 which “prohibits the donation of fetal tissue from abortion to medical research, mandates the burial or cremation of fetal tissue,” and bans second-trimester abortions. So far, so good.
If you go to the Texas Legislature Online website and look up SB 8, you will find that it had 5 Primary Authors, 16 Coauthors, 4 Joint Sponsors, 77 Cosponsors, and ONE Sponsor, Cindy. Add them all up and you have 103 authors and sponsors. There are 9 other “chumps” listed. If you add their names, you get an unwieldy grand total of 112 names.
They want to draw attention to, and express their extreme dissatisfaction with, SB 8 and chose Cindy because she was the lone sponsor. It has much more to do with brevity & SB 8 than Cindy’s pro-life credentials.
If Planned Parenthood had listed everyone whose name is on the bill, the post would be so long that no one would read it. It would have been so long that there would have been no room for the “Champs” list. We can’t have that now can we?
Oh and by the way, Senator Hall’s name is found on the Coauthor list. So I guess that makes him a “chump” too. Add to that that Cindy might not be as pro-life as she wants you to think, and the choice for pro-life voters is clear.
