Wendy Davis says she could support an abortion ban

Posted: Updated:
DALLAS -

The Democratic candidate for governor is courting the pro-life crowd in Texas, which amounts to a substantial number of votes.

Wendy Davis told the Dallas Morning News she could support a ban on abortions after 20 weeks under some circumstances.

In the past Davis has said she opposes late-term abortions except for the sake of the mother's life or health, in rape and incest cases or when there are severe and irreversible fetal abnormalities.

She said the current ban passed by Texas lawmakers does not respect the advice of doctors or the choice of women. It's the law she unsuccessfully filibustered as a member of the state senate.

Davis also said she supports the use of medical marijuana and would consider decriminalizing possession of it in small amounts.
