Perry was criticized by state Democrats after weighing in on Davis’ recent 11-hour filibuster against an anti-abortion bill, saying at a conference that it was “unfortunate that [Davis] hasn’t learned from her own example.” Davis, who was raising her first child by the time she was 19 years old, went on to graduate from Harvard Law School before becoming a lawmaker.
“How many young Texans, how many young men and women across this country didn’t get to accomplish what Wendy Davis has accomplished because they were aborted?” Davis asked Ingraham on Friday.
