Peggy Noonan on Wendy Davis

 on  ABC's This Week you would have heard this.
NOONAN: I think it will pass in a -- in a special session maybe on Monday or Tuesday. The aim -- the bill does not specifically try to close abortion clinics; it says they have to meet certain medical standards in order to operate. Here's what -- in the story of this young woman, she's so spirited. You know, she has such energy and she seems to have such commitment. 
But it seems to me -- and I think it seems to many Americans -- that what she is speaking for and standing for is something we would recognize as infanticide, late-term abortion, the taking of a little child's life. That is really, really serious. And so part of me thinks that this is a fabulous young woman, and part of me thinks, oh, my goodness, we're celebrating something that even in Europe they call a matter of brutality and barbarism.
Note how Ms Noonan describes Wendy Davis as a "young woman" in a dismissive manner not once but twice. I guess I can understand this because Peggy Noonan is an elderly 62 and Wendy Davis is a mere pup of 50. Yes, she described a 50 year old as "a young woman".  How nice when women try to pull the "she is just a silly little girl" card on each other.

Peggy Noonan should be ashamed. She won't be though.
