Sarah Palin - Pro Life

Sarah Palin's Personal Pro-Life Story: (from Susan B Anthonly List)
In April of this year, Sarah Palin gave birth to her fifth child, Trig, who was born premature with Down Syndrome. Recent statistics show that in the U.S., approximately 90% of Down Syndrome diagnoses end with the mother choosing abortion. Palin on her family's reaction to the diagnosis, in her own words:
"We knew through early testing he would face special challenges, and we feel privileged that God would entrust us with this gift and allow us unspeakable joy as he entered our lives. We have faith that every baby is created for good purpose and has potential to make this world a better place. We are truly blessed." (April 18, 2008, Anchorage Daily News)
"We've both [Palin and husband Todd] been very vocal about being pro-life. We understand that every innocent life has wonderful potential." (May 3, 2008, Associated Press)
"I'm looking at him [Trig] right now, and I see perfection. Yeah, he has an extra chromosome. I keep thinking, in our world, what is normal and what is perfect?" (May 3, 2008, Associated Press)
It is exciting to me to see someone who truly holds the same convictions that I have about life. In our day when so many of those in politics gauged truth by polls it is a breath of fresh air to see someone who holds to the truths of God’s Word.

It's nice to know someone is willing to take a stand for what they believe in. But most of all, for that stand to match up with God's Word! One can hope and pray this lady will be elected to office for our nation.

Thanks for the post. It really shows where we are at today when we are amazed that someone would keep their Down Syndrome baby.
