Wendy Davis poses for Vogue

Davis’s spread was shot in the rotunda of the Texas Capitol.

The lawmaker earned widespread attention for standing on the Texas Senate floor to block legislation banning abortions after 20 weeks and compelling abortion providers to have hospital-admitting privileges. 

Her delaying tactic was initially successful, but the bill was ultimately passed when Gov. Rick Perry (R) called the legislature back for an additional special session. 

The national attention garnered by the filibuster instantly made Davis a popular Democratic choice to run for statewide office. 

Davis said earlier this month that she is considering a run for the governor’s office but has yet to commit.

“I’m working very hard to decide what my next steps will be,” she told reporters.
