The pro-life movement has convinced an untold number of women to keep their babies. One of those women was Sarah Palin.
Palin told the "Women Betrayed" pro-life event in Washington, D.C., this afternoon that she has never forgotten the day she learned that her youngest son, Trigg, would be born with Down syndrome. She was 12 weeks pregnant at the time - the first trimester.
Palin then went on to attack Planned Parenthood and trot out her Trig Palin birth mythology.
"Of course, the option is there to join the other 85 to 90 percent of moms who are told their babies have Down syndrome and abort their children," because, in her opinion, Planned Parenthood convinces mothers they are inadequate to raise such a child.
That's when she drew upon all the intellectual, and spiritual, reasons she had learned to believe that no child should be aborted for any reason.
"I've always been pro-life, but I've never been asked to walk the walk," she said, emotion rising in her voice.
Tremendous pressure faces every woman "when you're faced with that decision," she said, choking back tears.
She was "choking back tears?" Oh I need to see the footage to believe that!
She credited "God convincing me from day one" that every life has purpose - but she said the pro-life movement helped dispel the nagging voices that tried to justify abortion. She spent time "standing on the message," she said.
'I had to recall all of the rallies, all of the interviews I've seen, all of the ads that run that are pro-life," she said. "That reminded me that - yeah! - we can do it."
"And it's worth it. Yes, absolutely, we can do it."
When Trigg was born, "God changed my heart, and my mind, and my eyes," Palin would confess. "I said, 'Hey, we won! My kid's got more chromosomes than your kid.'"
Well her political career is over, and she is now even being called a clown by the likes of Glenn Beck, but Palin can still take refuge behind her anti-abortion creds.
and have proven that her story is all bullshit, but I am not sure we will ever convince these people of that fact.
But I sure intend to keep on trying.
One has to wonder why nobody in the audience asked Palin where Trig was right now?
Or asked her exactly how much time she has spent with the child who "God changed her heart" to care for?
Or even asked her why, if she was so darn tooting pro-life, she bothered having an amniocentesis in the first place?
I really cannot believe how stupid some people are sometimes.
