Senator Wentworth should apologize
by Elizabeth GrahamTuesday, July 24, 2012
Jeff Wentworth, a Republican incumbent running for reelection to the Texas State Senate, just distributed a disgusting ad insulting me, you, and every Pro-Lifer as "extremists."
In the ad, pro-abortion incumbent Wentworth slandered his opponent, Dr. Donna Campbell because she’s Pro-Life and wants to protect all the unborn.
Pro-abortion Wentworth depicted Dr. Donna Campbell in a sinister Doonesbury-type cartoon with the following speech bubble above her head: "Victims of rape and incest should be FORCED to bear the child of the attacker."
Dr. Campbell never said that.
Who is the extremist here?
A 20-year liberal incumbent and proud supporter of abortion on demand? Or a physician who cares for women and children in all circumstances?
In March of 2008, Obama said that he wouldn’t want his daughters “punished with a baby.” Wentworth agrees with Obama that pregnancy and parenting is punishment.
Like you, Dr. Campbell recognizes that pregnant women and their innocent unborn children deserve protection and nurturing, including victims of rape and incest.
Dr. Campbell told Texas Right to Life today that, as a doctor, she knows that “compounding one tragedy with another tragedy has never promoted healing.”
There are better ways to help women victimized from rape and incest besides killing a life and increasing the suffering. As an emergency room physician, Dr. Campbell understands how to care for victims of trauma and violence -- Dr. Campbell delivers compassion.
Texas Right to Life calls on Jeff Wentworth to immediately apologize to the Pro-Life community in Texas for maligning our Pro-Life views as "extremist."
Who would you rather make laws in Austin: Pro-Life Dr. Campbell or proudly pro-abortion Jeff Wentworth?
