Sarah Palin Blah Blah Blah

"The pro-life movement is pro-women, and it empowers women with the message that we are strong enough and smart enough to be able to pursue education, vocations and avocations while giving life to a child."
-When Sarah Palin puts it that way, it makes me think maybe I've been completely wrong on the whole abortion issue. Oh, wait, no it doesn't, because that's not what it's about at all.

I prefer the pro-choice movement, because it allows women control of their bodies. Clearly Palin hasn't gotten this message, but newsflash: You can't have it all.
Also, how is your darling daughter doing pursuing her education at the moment, Mrs. Palin?

A job would be empowering, too. You know. Money. And then also, a roof over your head: that's potent stuff there, missy. Plus, also, help with caretaking. Look at that sheen of invincibility.

Oh, and good health, too, of the empowered mother and her newly fortified child. Now we're talking the world as your personal femoyster.

E.R.A. all the way.

I thought there was more semantic distance between "empower" and "compel".

To put it in proper context, you have to remember that this is a woman who seriously believes that because her frozen, barely-populated state is about 50 miles or so from a frozen, barely-populated finger of Russia, it gives her adequate "foreign policy" experience to run for national office.

I think she means 'vacations' but whatevs.

I'll just assume you've never tried vacationing with kids.

My favie is where she spoke at the pro-life conference and explained with great emphasis that she thought about aborting when it came about that the fetus had downs syndrome, but CHOSE to carry to term.

Way to exercise your freedom of choice there, deary!

Hence the deep irony of an ad for "Colonix" the #1 Colon Cleanser in the world..

Is there some sort of hidden agenda within the algorithm that determines the pop ups on this site?
Just what does it think about abortion?

Pro-forced birth is pro-woman!

Guys, guys this issue is so much simpler when you frame it as Michael Brendan Dougherty did: "Abortion is gross".

Doesn't the pro-life movement send the message that women aren't "strong enough and smart enough" to make their own decisions?

Unless logic is applied differently to vaginas, I don't understand how removal of *any* choice is "empowering".

You know when they are old enough you can send them to the store to buy smokes when you run out. I'd say that's pretty empowering.

saythatscool (#101)

In my experience, logic and the baginical area are not compatible things…

Palin is using the head of the little man in the boat to think for her.

Pro-choice is about getting Catholic girls to do anal.

I'm becoming more and more certain that Sarah Palin is simply trolling America, and you're all just falling for it.

And social conservatives are pro-children by empowering minimum wage (and unequally paid) moms to pay giant financial entities to keep their kids alive.
