Sarah Palin is a hypocrite.
The Governor says that she is pro-life but that apparently only extends to fetuses in the womb. Once babies are born and young mothers are in need the last person who they should turn to help from is Sarah Palin.
The New Times reports on how she cut funding recently for programs meant to help babies and young mothers:
“Our house is full, help us build a new home,” proclaims the Web site for Covenant House Alaska, a program that helps younger people, including teenage mothers. The Alaska legislature decided to allocate $5 million in building funds, but Gov. Sarah Palin cut that to $3.9 million with a line-item veto in June....
...the lost $1.1 million may delay a $22 million project to expand an emergency shelter, which is open 24 hours a day and provides food, counseling, medical care and a place to sleep for troubled youths ages 13 to 20 years old. Some teenagers later move on to transitional housing, including Passage House, which serves young mothers with babies.
The group is also banking on money from the state to help leverage private donations.
John McCain and Sarah Palin want to take away a women's right to make her own health care decisions. Palin has been clear that she is opposed to sex education for teenagers.
The bottom line is this: Palin is pro-life until the child is born and then she is willing to throw that life away.
