Speaking at a “right-to-life” event in Indiana yesterday, former Vice Presidential nominee Sarah Palin told the crowd that she has “just for a fleeting moment” considered an abortion when she learned her youngest son, Trig, would be born with Down’s Syndrome: “That blew me away, it rocked my world… It was a time I asked myself, was I going to walk the walk?” she said. In the end, obviously, she chose to continue the pregnancy. Trig turns one year old tomorrow.
Hmm. This is the second time that Palin has acknowledged that abortion is an issue of choice. Last summer she said she was proud of pregnant daughter Bristol’s “decision to have her baby.” Now she’s saying she considered having an abortion, but chose not to. Clearly, both she and Bristol chose what was right for them and their families, but they had a choice. Palin, of course, is a staunch supporter of revoking Roe V. Wade. If she got her way, the two options SHE considered would be whittled down to one — for the rest of us. [AOL News]
