Good for Sarah! A no-brainer decision, but at least she’s keeping true to form. Thank you, Governor Sarah.

If I couldn’t get bandage from the school nurse for a cut finger, why should a girl be able to get an abortion without consent?

Reasonable people can disagree about many aspects of legal regulation of abortion, but this is indeed a no-brainer.

"Liberals" often define abortion as simply a medical procedure. Question: should your fourteen year old have the legal right to sterilize herself, have breast implants, donate a kidney, or cover her body in tatoos without your consent?

Amen on all the following quotes. Thanks Sarah Palin for you support and upholding reasonable (and Conservative) principles. Yes and disregard all the liberal MSM bull crap. Now all you need is stay with Constitutional principles and you will have a majority of voters. Go get em...

Glad I read the article this time instead of the title. The title is misleading and makes it sounds like she’s supporting an abortion initiative. But, it’s an anti-abortion initiative.

I want that ballot initiative amended to say:

2) All abortion must be banned

It was purposely misleading. Sean Cockerman nursed on many a leftist teet while working at Tacoma's News Tribune. He'll sometimes write the same hit piece on someone on consecutive days, but with slightly different wording in the title.

Waddya expect from a McClatchy hack.

She can't do that. It would violate the (implied) penumbra of the Constitution, which takes precedence over the (written) Tenth Amendment. The Supremes have spoken on that question.

"I got a preliminary opinion from Law (Department) just giving me a heads up that critics would certainly file an ethics charge against me if I were to sponsor an initiative. So though I maintain I have First Amendment rights just as any other citizen does, I won't flirt with the notion of giving critics more ammunition to keep filing wasteful ethics charges against me, but instead I'll volunteer to be the first signature," Palin said.

Just like the Lilliputians tying down Gulliver.

The ADN is a Rat rag, and the story was no doubt titled as it was to mislead people (again) who don’t take the time to read the entire peice.

It's not just consent - in New Hampshire, the Democrats ramrodded a law that allows young girls to get an abortion without TELLING their parents, let alone getting their CONSENT. That's how sinister the cult of death really is.

Thanks for the post.
These are things that normal Republican polititians do.
THIS is what the majority of Americans, not to mention Republican voters want - so why must we be continually cajolled into cuddling up to pro-abort RINOs?
Why should we be asked to "soul search" why creatures like Specter leave the Party?

It’s because of the number of votes we can never reach. Our base is shrinking, and we are a victim of liberal demographics and socialism. Plus the American people haven’t a clue about what they are doing to themselves, just like the Europeans were doing in the 1960s.

Um.

Don’t get me wrong. I’m as big a fan of Gov Palin as most, but 2012 is gonna be a real dust-up IMHO.

The first hurdle, will be the primaries. Already Mitt and Jeb are lining up and starting their moves.

Winning in 2012 will be in large part possible, if a significant proportion of women can be persuaded to vote Republican in the general, and Palin in the primary. Many last time around, seemed to default toward Romney.

I mean there’s no denying Gov Palin is photogenic, but does it really help to focus on her legs, or on her boots?

Not that I mind. Just not sure it really helps? :)

Whoa, Luke! Take it easy there. Do not expect to find logic and consistency in communist policy. The only thing that matters in what communists say and do is what advances their quest for and holding on to power.

During the Viet Nam War era the left created the anti-American mantra “destroy the village to save it”. This was in response to the US Army policy of relocating people from villages in areas controlled by the Viet Cong to government controlled areas. Once the village was emptied it was burned. The objective was to deny the Viet Cong a population into which it could melt after attacking US and/or Vietnamese soldiers. The tactic was intended to protect otherwise neutral or anti-communist Vietnamese from the Viet Cong while, at the same time, creating free fire zones. Free fire zones were areas devoid of friendlies. So anything human observed moving about in them was automatically deemed an enemy and subject to immediate lethal engagement. An additional benefit was to minimize civilian non-combatant casulaties from US and Vietnamese Army fire power.

In any case, the communists have no compunction against destroying human beings to save them. That’s what their propensity for summary execution, the political gulags and insane asylums are all about.

Good for Sara. (Screw the MSM. They'll never report anything good about a Conservative anyway.)

Hopefully, Sara will lead the movement. If she remains strong and sticks to her Conservative ideals, America will be screaming for her. The silent majority has been run over too many times by their own party. The time is ripe for a real "change" - for the better this time.
