and I don't get pissed off easily.
On my way home today, I heard Kentucky Senate President David Williams interviewed on our local NPR station. I wish I could find the exact quote, and I'll look tomorrow, but basically he said that he approved of Vice Presidential nominee Sarah Palin and was impressed that her 17 year old daughter decided to have her baby. He said he knows that many Democrats think she should've had an abortion, but he thinks it was a good decision to keep the baby.
As a Democrat and Pro-choice woman, I take serious offense to that remark. I am pro-choice but in no way does that mean that I think choosing to have an abortion is the right decision. I do, however, think that in certain cases, women need to have a safe, clean place to go and it is no business of the governments.
Furthermore, if you're pro-life, be damn well pro-life. Anti-death penalty, anti-war, anti-taking of life in any form, under any circumstance.
If this woman, who also opposes birth control in every form, opposes putting polar bears on the endangered species list, supports the banning of books, and believes in abstinence only education becomes president... I just don't know... I just don't know...
