Sarah Palin Failed to Act to Help Outlaw Partial Birth Abortions in Alaska

The headlines this morning read,

Palin Gets Personal one Abortion Issue

Palin drubs Obama on abortion during Pa. rally

Palin: Obama "Atrocious" On Abortion , where
Amanda Carpenter wrote,

"Palin specifically attacked Obama for his votes against the Born Alive Infant Protection Act as an Illinois State Senator. β€œHis position on this and on life has been his vote against legislation--three times voting against legislation that would provide medical care to a baby born having been a survivor of an abortion,” she said. β€œIt's very appalling and I think if more Americans could understand how absolutely extreme that position is there would be a heckuva lot more outrage than we've already seen.”

Sarah has heckuva lot of room to talk.... NOT!
To begin with, Obama didn't vote against the anti-abortion legislation in question, rather, he disagreed with the wording of the bill, so he abstained, voting, "present", a move for which he caught "a heckuva lot" of flak from prochoice groups, by the way. But, it seems that when partial birth abortion was up for discussion in Alaska last spring, Sarah Palin was just too busy to bother with it.

In April, Governor Palin denied the Alaska state legislature's request for extra debates on two anti-abortion bills, one requiring minors to obtain parental consent before having abortions and another outlawing partial-birth abortion except to save the life of the mother. After state senators failed to reach agreement, the chamber's president tried to attach them to the agenda of a special legislative session being held on Palin's top legislative priority: a new natural gas pipeline.

Palin demurred, saying,

"Alaskans know I am pro-life and have never wavered in my belief in the sanctity of every human life," she said in a statement. "These issues are so important they shouldn't be diluted with oil and gas deliberations."

RIIIIIGGGGHHHHT..................Like other Republicans before her, Palin made lots of noise during her campaign about her "pro-life" position, but when the time came to act against abortion, she did NOTHING.

Sarah Palin is all for saving babies' lives alright... as long as the saving their lives doesn't get in the way of more important political business, such as gas pipelines.

Fact is, it seems that every time Sarah points her perfectly enameled fingertip at Obama, three more are pointing straight back at her.

Republicans point towards Obama's whacko preacher, whom he has DISAVOWED, but Palin has yet to disavow Pastor Murthee, the African pastor renowned as a witch hunter -- in fact, she publically credits her political success to Murthee's anointing at Wasilla Assembly of God.

Republicans have been insinuating for MONTHS that Obama isn't a loyal American, and last week Sarah Palin has accused him outright of "palling around with terrorists", but she and her husband did these very things when they were members of the Alaskan Independence Party -- Todd and Sarah Palin wanted to see their state to secede from the Union, and the Alaskan Independence Party's founder, Joe Vogler, collaborated with IRAN to the end that it should do so.

Joe Vogler is also quoted as saying,

"My government is my worst enemy. I'm going to fight them with any means at hand"

"The fires of hell are frozen glaciers compared to my hatred for the American
government, and I won't be buried under their damn flag. I'll be buried in
Dawson. And when Alaska is an independent nation they can bring my bones home."

Somehow, "God damn America" pales in comparison.

Face it, the only thing Palin has in her favor is that she claims to be prolife, and when she had a chance to strike against partial birth abortions in her own state, , she didn't -- she was too busy pushing her political agenda, trying to get a gas pipeline approved.

Palin has the reputation of being a good, solid, born again Christian, but she rails and she lies and she slings mud, whereas Obama, whom most would say is at best a NewAgey, watered down sort of Christian, does none of these things.
While he is wrong when it comes to abortion and when life begins, in all other aspects, Obama has behaved in a more Christian way than John McCain and especially Sarah Palin -- no matter how much people insult him, revile him and lie about him, throughout his campaign Barack Obama has conducted himself as a Christian should, with dignity and charity, in a manner befitting a President of the United States.
