Skip to comments.Opinion: Sarah Palin is Truly Pro-Life, Daughter Bristol has Made the Right Choice
Posted on 09/01/2008 5:14:21 PM PDT by tcg
First of all, Sarah Palin is a woman who lives what she proclaims. She is truly pro-life. She and her husband Todd knew that their last child, Trigg, had an extra chromosome. He was a Downs child. What did they do? They welcomed him as a special gift and showed the whole world that every human life is a gift to be received and not a problem to be dealt with by the always deadly choice, of abortion.
Now, the news has emerged that Sarah and Todds seventeen year old daughter, Bristol, is pregnant with her own child. Yes, pregnant outside of marriage. Well, I understand what they are going through. Having raised five children, including three daughters,it does happen. We cannot make our childrens choices for them. We can only pray that when one of those choices results in the gift of life out of the ordinary course, they will choose to respect the life of the child conceived. I have lived this as a father, and as a grandfather, and I resent the arrogance of those who now raise it in an effort to discredit Sarah Palin.
In fact, the Palin's have only confirmed me in my conviction that the Governor of Alaska is a great asset to John McCain and just the kind of leader which we need to stand at the side of the next President of the United States.Bristol Palin acknowledges that she is five months pregnant and unmarried. She and the father of this child have properly exercised their freedom of choice. They have done so morally. They have chosen life.

she has proved that she deals with issues like we all do and yet the media go on about htis yet ignore Fowlers comments
That's why I think she's going to get McCain elected, and while she'll probably be elected President after him.
The Palins walk the walk.
Three days ago, conservatives fell in love. Today a bunch of creepy thugs tried to attack our girl. This is a very dumb move for those attackers.
This would be a tremendous contrast to Barry Obama's thin-skinnedness (if thin-skinnedness is a word).
We in America are being given such an open and shut case of choosing a culture of life over a culture of death.
The candidate for the presidency from the Dems has an even more pro abortion rating that NARAL to the point of supporting infanticide and view unintended pregnancies as a punishment.
His VP pick although claiming to be Catholic has supported all abortion bills presented before him.
On the other hand, we have a Presidential candidate, who literally was handed his adopted daughter by Mother Teresa (soon to be named a saint)
Our VP candidate refuses to abort her son when told that he will have Downs Syndrome and who has encourage her daughter to give birth to child.
It can not be a coincidence.
Sarah & Todd Palin walk the walk.
May the Good Lord strengthen & protect them.
Wouldn't that make a great bumper sticker?
Now that the entire so-called “Christian right” has stated its support for Gov. Palin’s family, the looney leftist nutroots will next claim she and McCain disclosed her daughter’s pregnancy in order to unite the “evangelicals.”
The lefties are only bitter because Bristol didn't choose abortion so the could throw it at Sarah.
Not quite, ‘don’t punish her with a baby’.
Every time I think I can't get any more disgusted with media, they prove me wrong. I hardly listen, watch or read these morons any more. The sooner the NY Times and WaPo go broke, the better.
As a conservative Christian who went through the unmarried pregnancy bit with a daughter we had loved, brought up in church, etc. I am empathetic to the Palins. Sally Q., Wolfie, et al, are going to be very disappointed when evangelicals keep right on supporting the Palins.
These are real, down to earth people--how refreshing!
What a tailor-made opportunity for the youth and parents of America to see how real people, possessing faith, hope and love can handle difficult decisions without resorting to the taking of a life!
This to me strengthens Sarah Palin and her beliefs and I will vote McCain/Palin ticket. I have a feeling a lot more people will as well like John Coale and we saw on TV today tht Geraldine Ferraro may switch parties????????? Interesting. John Coale also said there are others in the hillreee camp who will be voting McCain/Palin as well but didn’t want to name them until he had an opportunity to check with them.
“Three days ago, conservatives fell in love. Today a bunch of creepy thugs tried to attack our girl. This is a very dumb move for those attackers.”
You know, you have hit the nail on the head. That is exactly why the public will love her too...
Ever hear of a damsel in distress? Could backfire.
Make MORE American babies!!!

It is right that conservatives make more ‘young-uns’ than liberals.
