Yes! This is GOOD! When a nationally known and respected leader like Gov. Kasich takes a stand it gives us hope. The heart of the nation is still good.
Ohio Gov. John Kasich told CNN's Jake Tapper on "State of the Union" that he would sign the bill currently debated in his state banning abortion in cases where the child is diagnosed with Down syndrome.
Yes!!! Thank you Gov. Kasich; thank you Ohio!
Palin then links to this CNN article which explains how Kasich just pissed away the female vote.
One of the things about Sarah Palin that angers me the most, and trust me the list is long, is her complete ignorance of how women gained rights in this country.
She seems to think that women always had the right to vote, hold public office, and control their own bodies, when that is in fact totally wrong.
Thousands of women took to the streets to fight for the rights that Palin seems to think were gifted to her from God.
Millions of women died due to complications from back alley abortions or from the abortions themselves, and millions more were rendered sterile or were mutilated by the procedures.
Roe vs Wade helped to put a stop to that.
And as for forcing a woman to give birth to a Down syndrome child that the mother is unable, or unwilling to care for, what kind of life does John Kasich and Sarah Palin think that child will enjoy?
How many families do they think are lining up to adopt Down syndrome babies if the mother gives them up. What do they think is the cost for the child and the parents if they are forced to keep it, even though they are unequipped financially or emotionally to deal with the constant difficulties?
I work with this population, trust me it is not easy even for the most attentive and dedicated of parents.
And who is Sarah Palin, who hired a caregiver from the moment of Trig's birth to care for him, and who abandons him for weeks or months at a time, to tell ANY other mother that she must give birth?
The word "hypocrisy" is simply not damning enough.
I also found this picture on the post highly disturbing.
It is bad enough that Palin continues to use Trig as a political prop, after all that is why she has him, but she should definitely leave Levi's son out of her political pandering.
