Texas Lt. Governor Will Not Let Sandra Bullock's Wendy Davis Biopic Film In The Senate Chamber

"If I have anything to do with that"

"Abortion Barbie" Wendy Davis became such a darling among the Left that Hollywood will be producing a biopic of her starring Sandra Bullock.

The former state senator of Texas and failed gubernatorial candidate Wendy Davis became a household name for feminists in 2013 when she filibustered a state senate bill to ban abortion after 20 weeks. "Let Her Speak," a film starring Sandra Bullock as Davis, centers around her fight for abortion in Texas.

Obviously, the movie will highlight her 2013 filibuster, perhaps even climaxing with it, and the filmmakers will seek to replicate that day by filming in the Texas Senate Chamber where it took place. However, Texas Lt. Governor Dan Patrick has promised to fight tooth and nail to ensure the film takes its abortion propaganda elsewhere.

Speaking with Texas Public Policy Foundation, the pro-life Lt. Governor vowed to keep the filming off state property.

"If I have anything to do with that, I'm not going to let them use the Senate chamber to shoot because they have already disgraced it once. I'm not going to let them do it again," Patrick said recently.

After having read the script, Patrick said the movie intends to portray him as the "villain" and even has him use a curse word against Davis, which never happened.

"I'm a long way from being a perfect person … but I don't curse," he said.

Patrick also expressed disappointment that well-respected actress Sandra Bullock accepted the role to play Davis.

"Sandra Bullock," he said, "I used to like her."

Todd Black and Jason Blumenthal will produce the film under the Escape Artists banner, according to Variety.
