Breaking News: Sarah Palin is now Pro-Choice!
July 16, 2009
In a press conference held earlier today in Wasilla, AK., former Vice Presidential candidate Sarah Palin announced she has switched her position on the issue of Roe vs. Wade and has embraced the pro-choice position she formerly rejected. Said Mrs. Palin:
“As a mom of a special needs child it has become clear to me now how selfish I have been with regards to forcing my worldview upon others. Yes, our family was ready to make the level of commitment necessary in order to deal with a down syndrome child, but I now realize that not everyone is able to do likewise. In addition, there are exceptional cases of rape, incest, and other horrible instances where a child was neither desired nor is able to be properly cared for by the future mother.”
Continuing, the Alaska Governor said:
“In addition, while my faith tells me that it is proper to allow for life at every opportunity, I also accept the fact that we’re not a Christian nation, and because of that my beliefs should not be used as a lever to force my morals and legal perspective, both of which have been settled by our highest court in 1973, onto others.
“I accept that the mother should bear the right to decide what’s best for her body, for her life, career and existing family, and will from here on in reject any notion that others can decide what is “right” for a private citizen when it comes to the choice of childbirth.”
In written a response from Kim Gandy, President of NOW – the National Organization for Women – said:
“This is a significant advancement for women from coast to coast, we applaud Governor Palin and pledge our help in her future endeavors furthering the education of women abroad with regards to their individual rights.”
Planned Parenthood President Cecile Richards was equally enthusiastic in her response:
“We here at Planned Parenthood are proud of Governor Palin’s new found sense of respect for a woman’s right to choose, and are offering her the full weight of our support and experience as she travels down the new and exciting path of the rights of women worldwide.”
Cable and news networks have been universally responsive to Mrs. Palin, and with her soon vacated gubernatorial seat are seeking to monopolize her now freed up schedule with what will likely be a full plate of interviews.
Now for some real news:
The above is a complete fabrication, not a bit of it is true.
But it had your attention, if not raised your blood pressure, didn’t it? And why wouldn’t it? Had the above been true, had Sarah Palin renounced her pro-life position, the media would be in a complete frenzy, nothing in the world would matter more, not ‘Cap & Trade,’ not national health care, and most certainly not ‘Global Warming.’ Michael Jackson could finally rest in peace.
If Sarah Palin had changed her position on the lives of the unborn you would have heard about it before your next trip to the bathroom.
If you buy that – and I do – consider this: How many people know that Norma McCorvey (‘Jane Roe’ of Roe vs. Wade) did likewise, only in reverse? You could ask any random group of people in any major metropolitan area and if you found that even 10% knew it would be stunning. Ask a handful of your friends, family members, co-workers (if you dare), and so on. See if that isn’t the case.
That McCorvey reversed herself is an historical fact. She accepted Jesus Christ as her Savior in 1995 and her worldview immediately changed. The media was hardly interested, though. Now she’s 100% pro-life, and actively demonstrating it, too boot. In fact, her recent interruption during Senator Al ‘Stuart Smalley’ Franken’s questioning of potential Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor was brilliant timing. A liberal activist judge being asked ridiculous questions about “Perry Mason” by a washed up SNL cast member turned clown act Senator. Don King was heard to be saying, “Only in America!”
I said, “Way to go, Norma!”
Norma McCorvey never actually had an abortion. Nor was she ever raped. Most people do not know either of those facts. The Supreme Court didn’t in 1973, at least about the rape, anyway. The media isn’t very interested in telling you about that, either. If you doubt me, please, just listen. The next time her name come up, or the next time anything at all with regards to Roe vs. Wade becomes topic du jour on some talking head program, just listen. They won’t say a thing. It would only tarnish the glorious result the Supreme Court adjudicated in 1973, and they can’t have any of that.
While McCorvey was certainly used in the now (in)famous Roe vs. Wade case, it is also fair to say that she was willing to have been used. However, it is thus equally true that the legalization of abortion was a result of a fairytale. Perhaps a legal term might be “false pretenses.” The fabric of human value in this greatest country in the world rests on a pack of lies. Norma McCorvey has to live with that. Personally, I can’t imagine the weight of such guilt, just as much as I struggle to imagine the greatness of the Grace God shown to us sinners when He forgives us for Christ’s sake. Grace wouldn’t be amazing if it didn’t apply to all us wretches, Norman McCorvey included.
So, run the math on this one, see if you don’t agree. If it was Sarah Palin ‘going to the dark side’ the liberal media would be beside itself. When their ‘golden girl’ does the same, only the other way, they can’t be bothered to tell a soul. One is great business, the other bad for business. Don Henley said this in his classic song ‘Dirty Laundry’:
I make my living off the evening news Just give me something-something I can use People love it when you lose, They love dirty laundry!We got the bubble-headed-bleach-blonde who Comes on at five She can tell you 'bout the plane crash with a gleam In her eye It's interesting when people die- Give us dirty laundry! Can we film the operation? Is the head dead yet? You know, the boys in the newsroom got a Running bet Get the widow on the set! We need dirty laundry! Kick em when they're up Kick em when they're down Kick em when they're up Kick em when they're down Kick when they're stiff, kick 'em all around!
And so it doesn’t sell to praise Norma McCorvey for her amazing turn to the right, and to the Light. But it sure does to kick Governor Palin at every turn, when in fact she’s done absolutely nothing wrong. It’s reasonable to assume that the only thing Governor Palin could possibly do right in the eyes of elitist America and our crazed main stream media would be to renounce all in which she believes. That would be the top story on every TV station in the country for the rest of the week. How proud of her they would be.
This all begs the question: What does that say about the current state of American mores and morals? But that’s a topic for a future post.
