Yesterday's Story: Wendy Davis Is Staggeringly Dishonest
Today's Story: Wendy Davis Is Staggeringly Dishonest, But In a Different Way

Wendy Davis told John McCormack that she didn't know what happened in the Gosnell case, using the ploy of Strategic Ignorance to avoid his next question (What do you think we should do to avoid future Gosnells?).

She claimed she had no idea of what happened in Gosnell's clinic, despite launching a filiibuster against a law directly inspired by Gosnell, then added all she did know about Gosnell was that he operated a regulated ambulatory surgical center.

Which is a strange thing to have as the One Thing you know about Gosnell. It would be as if a friend just said something about John Wayne Gacy's clown paintings, then you say, "Yeah, I guess we can see the hints that he was a serial killer of young runaway boys," and then he goes, "Whazthatnow? Serial killer? You mean John Wayne Gacy, celebrated painter of clowns, killed someone? You're saying that the Thomas Kincaid of red floppy shoes is some kind of serial killer? Wow. Mind. Blown. Whoa. I totally did not see that one coming."

Anyway, she made this risible claim as part of her argument that:

1) Gosnell's ambulatory surgical center was unregulated.

2) All other ambulatory surgical centers are regulated, ergo

3) We have no need of a law requiring regulation of ambulatory surgical centers which perform abortions.

And is that true? Is it true that abortion centers are always regulated, and it was just Gosnell's that escaped a look-see by authorities?

No of course not. As a member of the thuggish left she is more or less required to lie with every utterance.

The left calls this "having a fighting spirit."
