For someone who is solidly pro-life, it strikes me as a little odd that Sarah Palin’s official news release concerning her daughter’s unplanned pregnancy highlighted Bristol’s decision in this matter. I’m sorry, but isn’t that the very thing that the Republicans are supposedly against? A woman’s right to decide? Shouldn’t she have worded it that “we didn’t give Bristol a choice in this matter and we will one day make sure that the American government no longer extends this choice to other young pregnant women? It’s a child, not a choice. And we should never confuse the two.” Instead this is what Sarah Palin and her husband said:

“Our beautiful daughter Bristol came to us with news that as parents we knew would make her grow up faster than we had ever planned. We’re proud of Bristol’s decision to have her baby and even prouder to become grandparents,” Sarah and Todd Palin said in the brief statement.

I think they want to have it both ways. Which is exactly the way they do have it, all because of Roe v Wade.

  1. B/c Bristol could have decided to make the decision that murderers on death row make, and millions of other women, who decide to kill babies. So, her pro-life stance isn’t about choice. It’s about encoding the right choice for all to protect those millions of babies that can’t speak for their mothers, who DECIDE they want to kill them for various reasons at 2 weeks, but when the same woman DECIDES to have have children, if I ran her over then she’d need therapy for “losing her baby”. A child’s life isn’t contingent upon a woman’s thoughts of whether s/he is life or not. Life speaks for itself when left alone. visit on why Sarah does not need a more demanding job.
