The hypocrisy of the Left astounds me.
They're all in an uproar over Bristol Palin's pregnancy.
If she decided to have abortion and kill her baby, they'd throw a parade.
God Bless Sarah Palin and her family. I don't envy the glare of media spotlight, nor the intrusion on their privacy. There will be those who said they "asked for it" by accepting. The Palin's are going through something that LOTS of families have been through. And instead of quietly, tearfully arranging an abortion, The Palin's are LIVING the pro-life values they hold dear.
Yes, it's less than perfect.
No, I am not agreeing with teenagers having babies, but is anyone at all aware of how differently they've treated Bristol Palin and say, "Zoey 101"'s Spears who at age 16 got pregnant?
I applaud Mr. and Mrs. Palin for supporting their daughter.
For standing beside her.
For being REAL.
That's as real as it gets folks.
Contrast that with Obama, who thinks a baby is a punishment.
Whose wife on the last day of the DNC said something akin to the fact her husband's administration would not take away a woman's right to decide WHEN they embrace the "sacred responsibility of motherhood." Motherhood IS sacred, but don't you dare tell me that the likes of Barack and Michelle Obama believes it.
Life is sacred.
No matter how it comes along.
Look what my friend, Barbara over at MommyLife writes: (I cannot say it better)
Because being pro-life is more than a theory -
it's a way of life that honors and accepts the unexpected surprises
God bless and keep this lovely family
Thank you, God for giving us a TRUE pro-life candidate - one who doesn't see babies as punishments and one who is clearly attuned to your will.
For all the Obamas' talk of being just plain folks, this real life family puts every political family I've ever seen to shame.
Now help us to do our part - to follow the Palins' example of acceptance and love and to get to work securing true pro-life leadership for our country.
The choice could not be more clear - a presidential candidate who regards babies as punishment and who would allow babies outside the womb to die if that is the mother's desire - vs. a ticket representing adoption (McCain), acceptance of Down syndrome, and affirmation of the right to life even at a time when a baby would be inconvenient or embarrassing.
What a wonderful world this could be!
Now...no more politics for me for a while. I am concentrating on school and the laundry. And the hate mail I get for being a Conservative (But I don't mind....I am what I am!)
