Salt Lake City Weekly:
In the lead-up to the 2016 presidential election, the only stops hopeful Commanders-in-Chief are likely to make seem to be piggy-bank fundraisers at assorted mansions in Park City.
But have no fear: Sarah Palin, former governor of Alaska and 2008 vice-presidential nominee, is swinging by Salt Lake City Oct. 2 for the Pregnancy Resource Center’s Banquet for Life fundraiser at the Grand American Hotel. (Well yeah, but what else does she have to do?)
“We are delighted to have Governor Palin as our guest speaker this year,” said Jim Kerr, the resource center’s executive director, in a news release. “We know that her message will be both touching and motivating for all who attend.”
Pregnancy center? Isn't that usually Bristol's gig?
I wonder why she's not the one giving the speech?
Oh wait, is this one of those uber religious anti-abortion groups masquerading as a pregnancy resource center?
The Pregnancy Resource Center, according to its website, is affiliated with the Life Care Center of Utah. Its mission statement says it is a "Christ-centered ministry that works to meet the comprehensive needs to those unprepared for pregnancy, heal lives traumatized by abortion and challenge people to embrace a Biblical view of sexuality and the sanctity of human life.”
Yup, it sure is.
Apparently tickets for the dinner are going for a hundred dollars a pop. That is unless you want to share a table with Palin and then it's $5,000.
I'm sure it's well worth five thousand dollars to watch Palin pick at her food for an hour before she rushes off to the bathroom to shove her fingers down her throat. Don't you think?
But to be fair Palin might be the perfect person to talk about pregnancy with this group.
