Palin believes if a woman is raped & becomes pregnant, she should be forced to have the rapist's baby

Original post made by SHE'S AN EXTREMIST, Stanford, on Sep 9, 2008

According to Amnesty International, a woman is raped every 6 minutes in the United States of America.

According to Amesty International, how many innocent, unborn babies are slaughtered in this country each year? Or do they even bother to keep that stat?

Why should an innocent child be tortured to death, just because he or she could not control the circumstances of his or her conception?

I think Sarah Palin understands that this slaughter is happening, on a daily basis. It is a silent scream, but she hears it. Too bad that Amensty International is so deaf. Do they have no shame?

Oh those situational ethics do they comfort you in the blanket of denial?

Do they let you off the nasty hook of the reality of ending a another human beings life?

There is always adoption or are you too selfish for that choice?

That is Palin's personal belief and she lives by it herself, obviously.

She made no attempt to restrict abortions in Alaska, I imagine she supports states rights on this issue, but we will hear tomorrow.

Obama supports infanticide and is more far out on this than even NARAL

?complete strangers?
Really you sound a little off kilter. The woman decides who and when she gives the baby up for adoption. A child is innocent to the circumstances surrounding it's birth. You deciding to end the life due to an inconvenient fact is simply unconscionable treatment and respect for life.

I have no idea of what percentage of rapes ends up in an unwanted pregnancy.

But, it is worth remembering, that the child is as much the mother's as it is the rapist's and rape victims do not want and should not be coerced into killing their own flesh and blood, regardless of the father.

I think the point is having a baby who is a product of rape should not be Sarah Palin's choice - it should be the choice of the mother. I am extremely anti-abortion and pro-adoption, I wish we would make adoption a more acceptable alternative, it is not giving up a child, it is giving a gift to the child and the parents

In all the furor over the Obama "pig" quote, commentators forgot to examine his entire attack:

"You can put lipstick on a pig. "It's still a pig."

"You can wrap an old fish in a piece of paper called change. It's still gonna stink."

When read in the entire context you can see what he seems to mean with his dual animate male/female references and why he probably evoked two metaphors: most would think that Obama is talking about both on the ticket and his anger how each has expropriated his change motif.

So in that sense he appears both to insult the 72-year old McCain as the "old fish" that is still going to "stink", and to refer to Palin, who had famously evoked the metaphor of lipstick in a nationally televised address, as still the pig despite the lipstick.

The fact that he used two metaphors to attack the two, and used expressions referring both to age and Palin's recent use of "lipstick" don't seem to be accidents and that's why the cooing crowd got the old fish=McCain;lipsticked pig=Palin immediately.

I am concerned that the more we habituate to the notion of adoption (and the more we fail to respect the right of the mother and child to stay together), the more we are dehumanized, degraded, demoralized, and denigrated.

"The neo-cons who lied USA into the Iraq Nightmare, and who want us to nuke Iran, are suddenly staunch pro-lifers of all things!"

I am not a neocon. The reason I felt compelled to write on this site, and on this subject, is that I was raped by my uncle, and I got pregnant. My mother wanted to take me to Mexico to get an abortion. I was very conflicted, but I decided to have my baby. My mother was incensed, but that was the way she was. She kicked me out of the house, but my father, a very sypathetic and giving man, provided for me in my own apartment. I had my baby, gave him a big hug and many tears, then gave him out for adoption.

Five years later, I met a nice man, not exciting, but he was solid. I told him the truth early on. He stayed with me. We now have three of our own children. Two years ago I got a call from my first son. I fell apart with love, and so did my husband. He was raised by a good and loving family. He is now also part of our family. I can only say that I am so grateful that I did not kill him.

Sarah Palin has connected with me. I know this is very unusual for a woman in Palo Alto, but I cannot stop the tears of joy.

Pity no one has has asked Obama about why he voted in favor of infanticide, but there is still time.

Palin actually has pushed to restrict abortion in Alaska--in the area of parental consent.

So, no, she doesn't keep her beliefs to herself.

Some of you talk about the "innocent child"--rape victims aren't innocent?

I had a friend raped by her stepfather when she was a teen. Her "parents" considered forcing her to have it as a "blessing"--stepdaddy could get even more control over her.

She was able to run away. And, yes, had an abortion. She's a loving mom, now, and her kids have a real father. One she got to choose. As an adult.

If someone wants to bear a child and put it up for adoption, I support that. But it's not some easy choice where one size fits all. Pregnancy can be very risky for some women. I think women need the right to choose when they'll have a pregnancy.

It's a medical decision and a personal one.

Sharon,

Choosing not to have a rapist's child is not eugenics--it has nothing to do with breeding for preferred genetic traits.

For that matter, "eugenics" per se, is not illegal in this country. Do you even know what the word actually means?

(And I'm sorry I don't buy you're a lawyer--I've known a lot of them and there's a precision to their thinking and word choice that I don't see in yours.)

Rape is a crime, why would you give rapists the power to force their victims to bear their children?

Why do you favor punishing rape victims this way? Why would you compound the crime by taking their choice away.

I wish Ruth her peace and happiness. But, fact is, she had a chance to choose. My friend was in very different circumstances--and she's never regretted the abortion. Unlike Ruth, she had no family support--kind of the opposite.

Different situations, different choices. And that's why it should be up to the woman.

And Hitler, since you decided to bring him up, was all for women bearing endless babies and rape, of course, is a classic war crime--in part because it's so demoralizing to be forced to bear the child of your enemy.

So, sorry, I'm not buying your "culture of life"--it's dishonest in the extreme.

Women in Ohio, Michigan, Colorado,Florida and even Palo Alto will get the message now that obama has called the women he believes he is running against for the VP slot, strange, they know what calling a woman a pig and a stinking fish means.

Obamas supporters can try and deny this and buy this "pig in a poke" candidate, but the majority see him for what he is and it is not Presidential material.

Straight to the point. It's one thing to argue against an abortion or to refuse to have one under any circumstances. It's another to decide that you have the right to make that decision for other women.

I keep thinking of all the things that can go wrong in a pregnancy--would you need a court order if you had an ectopic so that you could prove your life was in danger? Or that your eclampsia was bad enough?

Hmmm, I just noticed that Mary/Sharon are trying to change the subject. Guess they don't feel like defending rapists.

So you are in favor of drug legalization, meth, crack, heroin etc.

The question obama avoided was " when do babies have human rights"
he supports infanticide as does Singer at Princeton, in his case up to 1 year of age,

So you support self mutilation, suicide, prostitution, selling your organs etc etc.
If it feels good do it, fortunately that group did not reproduce much and are now aged.

Killing babies is, in fact, harming the future of society, it is not "all about me" in fact

Hey,Extremism Exposed, thanks for sharing!


The Obama Campaign's Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day

So let me get this straight, in one day:

* Joe Biden, intentionally or not, insinuates that Sarah Palin doesn't care about special needs kids because of conservative objections to stem cell research (and the objections of Biden's own religion, natch).

* Biden asks a guy in a wheel chair to stand-up in front of a large crowd of people. An honest mistake, but veering into Chevy Chase as Gerry Ford territory, and not exactly the kind of campaign tableaux you're aiming for.

* Long time Obama associate and unrepentant domestic terrorist William Ayers releases a bizarre statement via cartoon saying "I don't violent resistance is NECESSARILY the answer."

* Barack Obama (again, intentionally or not) compares the opposing female vice-presidential candidate to a pig, at a time when she's become a figure of public sympathy because of scores of vile, baseless attacks on Palin and her family.

Now that's a finely tuned campaign! Keep up the good work guys!

When Obama denies having targeted Palin, keep in mind that everyone instantly made the connection.
Is Obama really that clueless? An angry outburst does less damage than his pleading he didn't mean it that way.
Remember the raised finger to Hillary? this guy has a problem with women.

Keep in mind as well that Obama has been telling us his genius at running his campaign is evidence of his fitness to be president. Some genius.
We are watching a crack-up under pressure.
His Chicago handlers might be able to put the wheels back on, but we now have a glimpse of "glass jaw" Obama in a crisis.

Mary,

Your speed reading is very poor.

I quoted "let people do what they want to their bodies as long as it isn't harming the rest of society."

This means that I am NOT in favor of drug legalization (people take drugs and put society in danger while they are under the influence).

Yes, I do condone "self-mutilation, suicide, selling your organs" because it does not affect the rest of society. Again, people should have the choice to do what they want with their bodies.

Re your statement, "Killing babies is harming the future of society". How is it harming society? Everyone will have an abortion until mankind is extinct? It's more harmful for society to have to deal with an unwanted child who grows up without love in his heart and turns to criminal activity = overcrowded prisons which the taxpayers pay for. What is saving a life if it is going to be a life in prison? Meanwhile, he will have harmed society somehow which led him to prison.

Pro-lifers, tell me this: why are there still unadopted children out there in foster homes? Could it be that they are African-American, handicapped, unhealthy, too wild or "too old" so nobody wants to adopt them? Before you yell for people to avoid abortion but instead put the baby up for adoption, remember that not all babies are what people idealize as the perfect child to adopt. Pro-lifers, for you to say that no one should have an abortion, y'all have to adopt all the kids out there who have no parents. And then you can toot your horns.

Paul,

Sharon's the child of non-white immigrants. "Anglo" isn't a term Caucasian Americans use to describe themselves. One immigrant group, however, does. Sharon's biographical details as she's revealed them here fit with it as well.

In other words, I find her far more like Obama, another child of an immigrant--a similar attempt to succeed and find a place for herself--than I do someone like Palin, whom she admires.

At the same time, I suspect she would seem very much the "other" to someone like Sarah Palin. Sarah Palin lives in a very white world, though there's a sizable minority of Inuit and other Native Americans. McCain/Palin is very much about appealing to white voters--that's part of that "small town" code.

I suspect Sharon admires someone with whom she actually has almost nothing in common.

Thank you for the voices of love and reason about adoption being a loving and life-affirming choice for women to make.

I feel deeply for all women who realize what they did in their youth with the language changing "good advice" of their elders. It must be hell to see that sonogram of a baby you are keeping and realize what happened. But, if you were led into a decision you didn't understand, don't beat yourself up. Just vote for waiting periods, counseling and full information laws.

BTW, it is pro-parent, not anti-abortion, that demands we vote in parental notification rights. A kid can't even pierce an ear until 18 without parent permission, let alone notification, so why does anyone think it is ok for a kid to make such a life changing decision without at least one parent being NOTIFIED, let alone giving permission?

So, again, contrary to Palin "imposing her values" on others, she has her finger on the pulse of the vast majority of Americans in the USA.

Just like, I suspect, she will clearly and fully explain that she, and millions of us, are FOR Stem cell research ( unlike Biden's implications), we are just AGAINST EMBRYONIC stem cell research. Amazingly, I suspect that the majority of us who are FOR loving the disabled, are AGAINST EMBRYONIC stem cell research because we understand that the idea is the same between killing human life, no matter how young, for the good of others and the medical experiments done "for the good of others who were more human" during WW2.

For the record, the only progress made in any diseases have been with NON-EMBRYONIC stem cell research, all of it funded by private donations. Those of us who really believe in medical research to help the diseased and disabled actually give money to research institutions, instead of trying to force the rest of you to give through taxes.


I think that idea is finally come.
