Sarah Palin: her actual abortion record and rhetoric is shocking to the conscience.
Pro Life Profiles ^ | unknown

Posted on 06/05/2011 10:07:28 AM PDT by jobim

As a Candidate whom Many Pro-lifers Would Like to Support: her actual abortion record and rhetoric is shocking to the conscience in that Sarah Palin:

- happily appointed in 2009 a Planned Parenthood board member to the Alaska Supreme Court

- indicates that chemical abortifacients that kill the youngest children should be legal

- distinguishes between her "personal" and public pro-life views (personally pro-life means officially pro-choice)
- rather than fighting for protection, Sarah indicates support even for public funding to kill some unborn children - whitewashes other candidates misleading millions to believe that pro-choice politicians are pro-life

- allows her name to be used in ads promoting even tax-funded embryonic stem cell "research"

- harms personhood by holding that "equal protection" should not apply to unborn children

- has never announced support for any state's personhood amendment nor the Federal Human Personhood Amendment

- opposes personhood by claiming that the majority can decide to legalize the killing of children.

In her vice-presidential acceptance speech Sarah said, "there is a time for politics and a time for leadership."1 During the above, which time was it for her? Sources below document Sarah Palin's tragic record and political rhetoric.

Summary:
Sarah Palin claims to be personally pro-life but her words and actions prove that she is officially pro-choice and stands against the God-given right to life of the unborn. Even if Roe v. Wade were reversed, Palin says she would still leave the decision to kill children to others.

My recent posts are all in support of Palin as our best hope. This site was brought to my attention last night. I want to hear a discussion, a thorough discussion, of her prolife stance. Why cannot she be brought into the fold, with Reagan, to fully support life Constitutionally?

that first point is false. Alaska is a state where the Governor get to pick from a list of approved candidates. She was given two, and she picked the best of the 2 liberals

the reason why I know she picked the best of 2 liberals is because the other guy who she didn’t pick went to the media and trashed her.

This article is a hit-piece as proved by this line:

Allowed Herself to be Used to Promote Embryonic Research: As soon as she became a vice-presidential running mate, Sarah Palin was used to promote the tax-funded embryonic stem cell research that McCain promotes,which is the fatal dissecting and harvesting of the bodies of the tiniest boys and girls for grisly research.

While it’s certainly fair to question her, or anyone’s, voting record and views on this or any other subject - the tortured language in this piece gives away the fact that it’s a “hit piece” and not a “think piece.” For that reason, it will not be effective.

Alaska uses that IGNANT and ABUSIVE commission system to find candidates for the court.

What happens is an elite committee picks their cronies to be judges. Usually they'll advance three names to the governor who then picks the winner.

No matter who the governor picks it's going to be one of the cronies of the commission members. The governor's only choice is to pick the least offensive and evil of the nominees.

These commission systems should be abolished. A civilized democratic country extends the franchise as far as possible. Eliminating eskimos, blacks, indians and women from the franchise of people eligible to vote for judges is UN AMERICAN!

This site also lists vehemently pro-life Bush as being a "Personhood Never" type, along with Billy Graham, Samuel Alito, Barbara Bush, John Roberts, Pat Robertson (Whose pro-life sermons could fill textbooks), and The Heritage Foundation.

In short, unless Palin shows up in a newsreel participating in an abortion procedure, call me a tad skeptical.

For Pete's sake, McCain used her to promote beer drinking as well.

You just can't avoid that when it comes to the McCains. Look at his daughter "Chunks" McCain ~ now you don't expect you'd get something like that without some excessive beer consumption.

When you scratch the McCains it's all about the beer!

Actually, Sarah did have the choice of taking each of the candidates aside and shooting them dead ~ then disposing of their bodies as the trash they are.

She didn't do that ~ such is the conditions under which pro-Life people must operate in this evil time.

Palin has always been a Goldwater Republican more than a Reagan Republican.

She is quasi Western Libertarian from the Goldwater School and will disappoint many Social Conservatives.

Her redeeming quality for SoCons is that she walks the walk in her personal life and would relegate socials issues to the States under the 10th Amendment.

Californians can smoke pot and Alabama can outlaw abortion.

Come to think of it, that's a PROPER reading of the Constitution.

- happily appointed in 2009 a Planned Parenthood board member to the Alaska Supreme Court

Which is a debunked myth. Christen was a board member of an adoption promoting group almost a decade before Planned Parenthood bought them out. They were not part of Planned Parenthood when she was a board member. Planned Parenthood is not on Christen's resume nor is there any record at PP of Christen being on their board. PLUS, the word 'happily' is some creative editorializing as Palin only had two choices and the other choice was a rabid leftist greeny.

SARAH PALIN ON ABORTION

New feminism: pro-woman, pro-life sisterhood

Together, the pro-woman, pro-life sisterhood is telling the young women of America that they are capable of handling an unintended pregnancy and still pursue a career and an education. Strangely, many feminists seem to want to tell these young women that they're NOT capable, that you CAN'T give your child life and still pursue your dreams. The message is: "Women, you are not strong enough or smart enough to do both. You are not capable."

The NEW feminism is telling women they are capable and strong. An if keeping a child isn't possible, adoption is a beautiful choice. It's about empowering women to make REAL CHOICES, not forcing them to accept false ones. It's about compassion and letting these scared young women know that there will be some help there for them to raise their children in those less-than-ideal circumstances.

I believe this so strongly because I've been there. I never planned on being the mother of a son with special needs. I thought, "God will never give me something I can't handle."

Daughter Piper is poster girl for Alaska Right-to-Life

At the Alaska State Fair I saw the Alaska Right to Life (RTL) booth, where a poster caught my eye, taking my breath away. It featured the sweetest baby girl swathed in pink, pretend angel wings fastened to her soft shoulders.

"That's you, baby," I whispered to Piper [my 7-year-old daughter], as I have every year since she smiled for the picture as an infant. She popped another cloud of cotton candy into her mouth and looked nonchalant. Still the pro-life poster child at the State Fair. Ho-hum.Well, I still thought it was a nice shot, as I did every time I saw it on its advertisements and fund-raiser tickets. It reminded me of the preciousness of life.

It also reminded me of how impatient I am with politics. A staunch advocate of every child's right to be born, I was pro-life enough for the grassroots RTL folks to adopt Piper as their poster child, but I wasn't politically connected enough for the state GOP machine to allow the organization to endorse me in early campaigns.

Choose life even in case of rape or teenage pregnancy

There's no better training ground for politics than motherhood. At one point during the 2006 general election, motherhood became the focus of a unique line of questioning. In my responses to a series of debate questions on abortion, I remained consistent and sincere, explaining how personal and sensitive the issue is and that good people can disagree.

But the debate moderator decided to personalize his hypotheticals with a series of "what if..." questions:

Q: If a woman were, say, raped...

A: I would choose life.

Q: If your daughter were pregnant...

A: Again, I would choose life."

Q: If your teenage daughter got pregnant...

A: I'd counsel a young parent to choose life & consider adoption.

I calmly repeated my answers to all o his "what-ifs," then looked pointedly to my right and my left, to one opponent, then the other. Then I returned to the moderator and said, "I'm confident you'll be asking the other candidates these same questions, right?" Of course, he didn't.

Protect our daughters with parental notification law

[Track] was playing for the Alaska All-Stars when he blew out his shoulder. In the ER, I was shocked when I saw Track sitting on a gurney, disheveled, ashen, and shaking. "I asked for a cup of water, Mom," he said. "They said I couldn't have one until you got here."

I turned to the nurse, and my eyes said more than words could have. She said, "we can't treat him until you sign consent forms because he's a minor." Of course I understood, but I still fumed inside. I even wondered out loud about why this big, strapping, nearly grown man who was overcome with pain couldn't even get a drink of water without parental consent, yet a 13-year-old girl could undergo a painful, invasive, and scary abortion and no parent even had to be NOTIFIED. The nurse seemed to agree with me, and on the spot I mentally renewed my commitment to help change Alaska's parental notification law so that our daughters would have the same support and protection we give to our children in other medical situations.

Fleetingly considered abortion at 43; understands sentiment

[On a trip to New Orleans], I noticed some peculiar yet familiar physical symptoms. There was no way I could buy a home pregnancy test in Alaska. The cashiers would know, and the next thing I'd see would be a headline. Since nobody knew me in New Orleans I [got a] pregnancy test box. Slowly a pink image materialized on the stick.

I quickly prayed about this surreal situation. I could hear the critics now: "She'll be distracted from state business."

I sighed and stared at the ceiling. And for a split second it hit me: "I'm out of town. No one knows I'm pregnant. No one would ever have to know." It was a fleeting thought, a sudden understanding of why many women feel pressured to make the "problem" go away. Yes, the timing of this pregnancy wasn't ideal. But that wasn't the baby's fault. I knew, though, what goes through a woman's mind when she finds herself in a difficult situation. At that moment, I was thankful for right-to-life groups that affirm the value of the child.

Chose judges who were strict Constitutional constructionists

In ordinary times, there would not be national interest in issues like my Alaska State Supreme Court appointments. But I had just appointed a well-qualified woman to serve on the highest court in the state, and now I got a call at midnight from the pasto of a large ministry in the Lower 48. The problem? I had appointed a judge who this pastor didn't think was pro-life enough.

I then explained what I used as criteria for my judicial appointments, and that I chose judges who were strict constitutional constructionists, since those who were not often undermined public trust by making law from the hip.

"Alaska follows the Missouri Plan," I explained. That system of judicial appointments was designed to remove political biases from the process, but instead adds to it by limiting governors to a small group of appointees to choose from. The woman I nominated didn't pass the litmus test he wanted to apply, but the other guy wouldn't have passed it either.

Use my daughter Bristol as a teaching tool for others

Q: Do you think that we should talk about birth control with our teenage sons and daughters?

A: Yes. Use me as the example of why you should, even more admittedly. My daughter, of course she is 18 years old, but has really been forced to grow up very quickly now and starting her own family and you know, life has changed so quickly for her. But if we can use this, and if my daughter Bristol can use her story as a kind of teaching tool for others, then so be it. Let us do that.

Q: Why is Roe v. Wade a bad decision?

A: I think it should be a states’ issue not a federal government-mandated, mandating yes or no on such an important issue.

Now, foundationally, it’s no secret that I’m pro-life that I believe in a culture of life is very important for this country. Personally that’s what I would like to see further embraced by America.

While mayor, Wasilla charged rape victims for rape kits

Sarah Palin’s hometown required women to pay for their own rape examinations while she was mayor, a practice her police chief fought to keep as late as 2000.

Former state Rep. Eric Croft, a Democrat, sponsored a state law requiring cities to provide th examinations free of charge to victims. He said the only ongoing resistance he met was from Wasilla, where Palin was mayor from 1996 to 2002. “It was one of those things everyone could agree on except Wasilla,” Croft said. “We couldn’t convince the chief of police to stop charging them.“

Alaska’s Legislature in 2000 banned the practice of charging women for rape exam kits -- which experts said could cost up to $1,000. Some supporters of Palin say they believe she had no knowledge of the practice. But critics call it ”outrageous“ and question Palin’s commitment to helping women who are the victims of violence.

Alaska has the worst record of any state in rape. The rape rate in Alaska is 2.5 times the national average.

Safe Haven bill: allow surrendering newborns without penalty

Governor Palin Signs ‘Safe Haven’ Bill Into Law: Bill allows parents to surrender newborns without prosecution

Palin signed House Bill 29 into law today. The “Safe Haven for Infants Act” passed the State House in May and passed the Senate on Jan. 19. The bill allows a parent to safely surrender a newborn child without the threat of prosecution, as long as there is no evidence the infant has been physically injured.

Without penalty, a parent may leave the infant in the physical custody of a peace officer, physician or hospital employee, or a volunteer or employee of a fire station or emergency medical service. “All children deserve to begin their lives in a loving, protective family,” Governor Palin said. “When that fails, it is our job as a state to make sure that children are protected.”

The Commissioner of Health and Social Services said, “Unfortunately, abandonment of infants has occurred in Alaska. It is our hope that the passage of the ‘Safe Haven’ act has ended that forever.”

Choose life, even if her own daughter were raped

The candidates were pressed on their stances on abortion and were even asked what they would do if their own daughters were raped and became pregnant.

Palin said she would support abortion only if the mother’s life was in danger. When it came to her daughter, she said, “I would choose life.”

Knowles, responding to the scenario involving his daughter, said he would counsel her and talk to her, but it would be her decision. “I would love her and support her no matter what decision she made,” he said

A: I am pro-life. With the exception of a doctor’s determination that the mother’s life would end if the pregnancy continued. I believe that no matter what mistakes we make as a society, we cannot condone ending another life.

...at that, pretty much all of this is false. I guess this group doesn’t mind the whole ‘bearing false witness’ thing.

If this is a RomneyBot, we have nothing to worry about. The Romney Life Issues page on this sight absolutely skewers him. Romney has done some totally outrageous things for being a Pro-Life candidate. Myth is a lying phony.

I don’t know the truth of the rest of the statements, but after the first statement the credibility of the rest of the article is in doubt.

Here’s a piece of advice son. Don’t believe unsourced articles with anonymous authors.

This site was brought to my attention last night. I want to hear a discussion, a thorough discussion, of her prolife stance. Why cannot she be brought into the fold, with Reagan, to fully support life Constitutionally?

Why would you automatically assume that just because it is on the internet it is true? A little discernment goes a long way. Just from the way they throw in editorialized wording like "'happily' appointed" should be a red flag it is agenda based instead of factual based.
