It's Time to see Palin in the Proper Light

The following is the third installment in a 9 part series investigating Sarah Palin's far-right views...information all voters need to know.

3. Sarah Palin believes in punishing rape victims.

Palin thinks that rape victims should be forced to bear the child of their rapist. She believes this so strongly that she would oppose abortion even if her own daughter were raped.

The Huffington Post reports: "Granting exceptions only if the mother's life was in danger, Palin said that when it came to her daughter, 'I would choose life.'

At the time, her daughter was 14 years old. Moreover, Alaska's rape rate was an abysmal 2.2 times above the national average, and 25 percent of all rapes resulted in unwanted pregnancies.
If Palin's own daughter was only 14 when she made that statement, does she think any girl of reproductive age is old enough to have a child? Girls are hitting puberty earlier and earlier. What if the rape victim were only 10? 9? 8?

Palin also opposes abortion in cases of incest and would grant an exception only if childbirth would result in the mother's death. She has not made any statements yet about whether she believes a 10-year-old who was raped by her father would be able to actually raise the child once it was born. Perhaps Palin doesn't care.

Should we execute rapists? The response I would expect from liberals would be a resounding NO!!!! Yet they twist this position around and say, Sarah Palin wants to punish the woman who is raped. Wrong. She does not want to give the death sentence to an innocent baby. Sorry some of you don't think a fetus is alive, or innocent, or worthy of protection. She does. She thinks two wrongs don't make a right. After the baby is born, should we kill it because it was conceived in a rape? Again, stupid liberals have to make up crap to lie about her. Why not just have the balls to say it like it is: Sarah Palin doesn't want fetuses aborted just because they were conceived as a result of a rape. We liberals have no problems aborting fetuses, and think the woman should be able to decide, even up to and until their heads are out of the birth canal and a pair of scizzors are jabbed in their skulls and their brains sucked out. Or, if the woman wanted an abortion, but the little sucker is nevertheless born alive, she should have the right to let the little sucker lie there unattended until it dies. THAT'S BARACK OBAMA'S POSITION.

You've been proved time and time again to be an uniformed liar and moron yet you still post. Wow...yet another NEOCON too stupid to realize that they live in denial. Here's more...Sen. Craig has "a wide stance," GWB is a "compassionate conservative,", "free will Baptists really do exist, as does angels and satan, Catholic priests didn't mean to be pediphiles...it was the knids fault.

anonymous is a fag, huh? Go figure, a liberal turns out to be a godless faggot? What are the odds of that happening? Oh, I'd say about 50-50.
