Several Wendy Davis for Governor supporters signed a petition on Wednesday demanding lawmakers legalize “fourth trimester” abortions. The petition, which was circulated outside of the Wendy Davis for Governor election center by an undercover SatireWorld reporter. He told Davis supporters the petition was aimed at sending “a message to our lawmakers that women have the right to choose what to do with their bodies and babies” even “after their pregnancies.”
“If you don’t know what fourth trimester is, it’s after the baby is already born,” the reporter voiced over in the video showing him collecting the signatures.
“Currently fourth trimester abortions are illegal in all 50 states,” he told supporters before asking them to sign his petition.
Most Davis supporter responses varied from “okay” to “it’s about time.”
One concerned supporter, who said she was the candidate’s media liason,. asked if the procedure would “cause harm to the child.”
“Well the child wouldn’t be there anymore,” responded the reporter. “It’s abortion and that’s pretty final.”
That campaign worker smiled and then signed the petition.
The second question he asked was about government providing abortions at federal clinics to any citizen for free. All Davis supporter participants agreed that the government should fund the free abortions for women even though the waiting period for the abortion procedure would be about 18 months.
The reporter said that after one hour he was able to garner fourteen signatures. Several asked if they could ‘sign twice.’
“That is a lot for the winter because there aren’t as many people on around the campaign office because it’s cold,” he said in the video. The campaign usually has about 30-50 supporters visit it each day.
“Texas Democrats are noted for not being too bright,” said Texas A&M professor Gill Malcom-Jones who claims 99.9% of his Democratic leaning students fail when he administers a simple ethics quiz.
