…but I can’t help myself on this one. I decided to watch pieces of the Couric Palin interview. I get more scared every time I see this woman talk, but this time she’s crossed a few too many lines.
Palin doesn’t have the guts to come right out and say it, and instead talks around her belief that she believes a 15-year-old girl raped by her father should be forced to have the child. Then – and this is my favorite part – she goes on to say she doesn’t think someone should go to jail for having an abortion. “Absolutely not” she says. Of course that’s supposed to make us all think that this is just her personal viewpoint, not something she would impose on the rest of us.
I imagine she would argue it should be illegal to offer abortion services, though. If I were Katie Couric I would have asked her that pointed question.
I, unlike Palin, make an honest attempt to understand both sides of the life and choice debate. But, I do not understand a person – a woman, no less – who would argue that victims of rape or incest should not have the choice to abort the fetus. That is not pro-life, nor is it feminist.
