So... I started watching the news on the 2008 Republican National Convention and of course, Sarah Palin, a current popular subject lately, came up. Something was mentioned that got my attention and really bothered me. First off, there is a mention of Palin's recent newborn baby, who was diagnosed with down syndrome. I thought it was 'crazy' or such a wild mention, that the media would make it a big deal or a huge honorable mention about Palin's decision to keep the baby, after hearing the news of the baby's disabilty while it was in her womb.


Is it even a question or thought in any human beings head, whether or not they would keep the child, just because they found out it had some sort of disablity?
Am I missing something here? Since when has anyone with any disability not been worthy of living a happy, quality life? Who is anyone not give them that opportunity of living their life.

I was truly in disbelief when i heard this on the news, and still am. Much more, when they also mentioned that Sarah Palin's 17 year-old daughter is pregnant. Palin states, "We're proud of Bristol's decision to have her baby..." I just don't understand how it is even a question.

I apologize if anyone is offended. I just feel it is a serious matter, that we take too lightly, nowadays.

I think it's really weird that's she pro-life and a member of the riffle club..i heard some debate on mpr how they think the child with the disability is her daughters but she'd try to cover it up of something like that...also i thought being pro-life meant you don't have a choice, you just have to keep keeps the baby..and she said her daughter made her own "choice", and supposedly mc cain knew all of this before he chose her, so he wanted people to know and some how have a "human" connection with her ...i really don't think any politician is ever telling the full truth... i personally think every one should have a choice..esp. in underage rape cases.

wow, that's pretty intense. i mean, i'm pro choice and everything, but to not keep a child for that reason alone just boggles my mind. there are so many instances where women decide it's not right to have their baby. like vanessa said, a rape situation. i don't know maybe i'm in between with all of this. it's a touchy subject.
