‘Thank the Lord for the Wendy Davises of the world’: Kathleen Turner
Life Site ^ | Ben Johnson

Posted on 08/08/2013 6:57:26 PM PDT by Morgana

August 8, 2013 (LifeSiteNews.com) – The most outspoken opponents of Texas' fetal pain law may have chanted “Hail Satan,” but actress Kathleen Turner has a different view of its most celebrated opponent: “Thank the Lord for the Wendy Davises of the world.”

Turner wrote in The Hollywood Reporter this morning that she found Davis' 11-hour filibuster against the state's 20-week abortion ban “exhilarating to watch.”

In addition to the pink-sneaker-clad state senator, Turner saluted Nevada Assemblywoman Lucy Flores for having the “courage to speak of her own experience with abortion.”

During testimony on a sex education bill in April, Lucy Flores admitted having an abortion at age 16 before adding, “I don't regret it. I don't regret it, because I'm here making a difference.”

“Thank the Lord for the Wendy Davises of the world,” Turner wrote. “Because everywhere that right-wing male politicians are trying to roll back the rights of women, progressive women legislators are there to speak up against them.”

The 59-year-old Turner went on to brand stronger North Carolina health standards “devious” for seeking to regulate “out of existence,” although Governor Pat McCrory only agreed to sign a watered-down bill that exempted abortionists from undue regulatory burdens.

She also called “race- and sex-selective” abortion bans “just plain offensive.”

The '80s sexpot has hinted that she may have her own abortion story to share. In the foreword to the 2002 Planned Parenthood book Behind Every Choice is a Story, a compilation of stories of post-abortive women, she wrote, “I can honestly say that when I was a college student a Planned Parenthood clinic saved – and changed – my life.”

Turner graduated from college in 1977, four years after the Roe v. Wade decision legalized abortion-on-demand nationwide.

“In my view, the pro-choice story is the truly life-enhancing story,” she stated, adding that every story of a mother who aborted her child “is a story of triumph and courage” and “an act of bravery.”

She has one daughter, Rachel, and a endured a previous, painful miscarriage. She considered in vitro fertilization in her mid-40s, then surrogacy, but opted against when she realized having another woman carry her child would leave her “feel incredibly left out.”

The prospect of infertility caused her deep pain. “For a time, I felt as if I wasn't [sic] a woman anymore,” she wrote.

The entertainment website notes that Turner sits on the board of People for the American Way (PAW), an ultra-liberal, Soros-funded advocacy group founded by Hollywood producer Norman Lear. PAW joined with the Obama administration in its unsuccessful Supreme Court case against a private Christian school, a case designed to undermine churches' ability to control who is a minister. It regularly targets pro-life politicians and jurists such as U.S. Senator Jeff Sessions and Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito.

She and Lear have campaigned in favor of abortion for years. Turner told NPR last year, “I want to bring this common sense liberalism, yes, to anyone I can before the elections.”

The world has always known vile women. However a culture crumbles quickly when they come into the ascendancy. Davis, Turner, Flores are visible and vile. Sadly there are hordes more unseen but undermining America. Remember, a majority of women voted for Obama twice and Clinton twice.

Turner’s insides finally affected the way her outsides look. She went from ten to zero in ten years or less.

I think deep down Kathleen Turner wishes her mother had aborted her..I think with most abortion lovers, its psychological, they wish they were never born

I would have to assume that Kathleen Turner is a not so famous Hollywood bimbo that the peasants should revere every word spoken by her.

Indeed they are.

Interesting that the Texas crowd chanted Hail Satan. They are satanists. he is their lord.

Death and destruction of all that is good and beautiful. It makes me weep at the rampant unchecked evil that we now endure daily.

Jesus please come soon.

guys have it so good with women like these ones. They can be promiscuous and have women available on tap and if she gets pregnant its the women who’ll abort.

How do we fix that? All the women stay home and make brownies and wring their hands till the men folk come home from voting?

She also called “race- and sex-selective” abortion bans “just plain offensive.”

SO she thinks seeking out brown babies and girl babies for death is OK? Typical leftist elitist. NOTHING can be allowed to interfere with abortion.

Kathleen Turner at one time numbered among the world’s truly beautiful women. My favorite movie with her starring was Romancing the Stone, costarring with another Hollywood idiot, Michael Douglas. She was gorgeous but I guess not so pretty in the soul though and she sure aged up fast.

Many liberals call Satan lord.

Even if they don't call him "lord" they serve him nevertheless.

And I would say "most" not "many".

Not saying it can be fixed. The allure of the low life has always been a corrosive reality throughout human history. When a critical number of the population succumbs, the culture declines. Simply the way it goes.

Is there some unwritten law that says ALL actors must complete morons? If so, then thank God for the outlaws, like Charlton Heston, Kelsey Grammer, Bruce Willis, and the other handful of actors who are not complete morons.

Her eyes are cold and empty looking, true mirrors of her “thankfulness” for Wendy Davis and Planned Parenthood.

There are MANY 59 year old women of her build who also haven’t had plastic surgery who look lovely because the peace they feel in their hearts by NOT supporting infanticide like this idiot. Under the heavy folds, her eyes are vacant.
