Texas doesn’t need Wendy Davis
We Texans do not need or want Wendy Davis as governor of the State of Texas.
As the “ABORTION QUEEN, ” she seems to be a standout. We do not need Texas to be the abortion capital of the United States.
You be the judges; dependable sources report there has been 60 million children that have been aborted in America. Hitler, as the leader of Germany had six million Jews put to death (so sad, so very sad).
Use your own pencil to compare the deaths of Hitler and the abortions in America.
Will the world and God not judge and remember America as Germany is remembered.

The top four recommendations by the FSC are being addressed in this bond:
Security at all campuses. We must provide safe and secure learning facilities for all students and staff. The world is changing and we have to be proactive on issues we didn’t worry about years ago.
