Choice OK for Palin, but not for anyone else?

Anyone else see the irony of Sarah Palin's recent speech at an anti-choice gathering, where she stated that she briefly she considered abortion when she found out her son had Down's Syndrome, but then decided to continue the pregnancy? Isn't that called "choice"? She freely used her choice, but she wants to take that choice away from every other woman?

That's called hypocrisy.

    If she were a Democrate the Republicans would be all over this contradiction. Why isn't the Democratic party jumping on this and plublicizing it? They are lousy marketers.

    I think the Dems have made a conscious decision not to engage Palin as a serious future candidate. That's what Obama did during his campaign. Not engaging her does make her seem like a joke (well, more of a joke than she already is on her own).

    She's never said that she wants to take away Rode Vs. Wade. She's never said that she wants to take away a woman's choice.

    In her own beliefs she's against abortion, but does not want to take that right away. However there have been other things that she has been hypocritical about one includes the fact that she stated she wouldn't take the bailout money for Alaska and then when she was in Indiana the decision was made to take the bailout money anyway.

    She's pulling an emotional trip for people. My hope is that she decides to not run in 2010 because IMO her political career is over due to the Republican party.

    There was a very conservative politician from Minnesota, Allen Quist, whose wife had actually HAD an abortion in her youth, and was opposed to Choice. I guess she felt hers was a mistake, so she wanted to prevent anyone else from making the same mistake.

    Um...yes she has said she wants Roe V Wade overturned...she said she wants the abortion laws returned to the states, and that would negate Roe V Wade:

    I realize Presidents don't have the power to overturn court rulings, but they do have the power to appoint Supreme Court judges who have the power to overturn court rulings. In that sense, the POTUS have very significant influence over abortion in the USA. Luckily, Bush's term ended before he got another anti-choice judge on the bench, which would have easily overturned RvW. Obama is likely to appoint pro-choice judges, so abortion is probably safe...for now.
