If . . .
Governor Sarah Palin was a Democrat and if Governor Sarah Palin had terminated her pregnancy when she and her husband discovered that there unborn child would be born with downs syndrome the Democrats and the National Organization for Women would be throwing a baby shower for Gov. Palin's unwed 17 year old daughter, Bristol Palin. NOW and the Dems would be suggesting that Bristol forgo a marriage and remain single and allow the government to support she and her unborn child because after all, Democrats know that the age of seventeen she doesn't know what is best for herself or her unborn child. She can't possibly at the age of seventeen make these types of life changing decisions herself.
But let's turn the page, Governor Palin is pro-life, she chose to see her pregnancy as a blessing, just as all her other children have been, she raised a 17 year old daughter who made a choice that she will have to live with the rest of her life and Bristol also chose life. I ask you, why would Democrats and the feminists of this country not be supporting a woman who seems to be juggling quite a lot of "balls" successfully and is paving the way as did Geraldine Ferraro?
We will see if women as a whole support Governor Sarah Palin or if some of them continue to bash the fact that they are suggesting that a mother of five who is running as a Vice Presidential candidate on a National ticket is incapable of of working and being a mother. After all the years we as women have fought for the right to be respected for all of our capabilities, are we going to turn back the pages of time? I for one, believe as a woman that we can DO it ALL. VN8
