Palin Gets Personal in Pro-Life Speech

Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin said in her speech to an Evansville, Indiana pro-life dinner that she understood the temptation to abortion because she felt it when pregnant with her son Trig. I’m sympathetic to conservatives who argue that pro-life praise of Palin’s decision to give birth to a baby with Down syndrome seems to implicitly accept some pro-choice premises. But I do think there is something to be said for a strong pro-life example, as well as an antiabortion message that comes wrapped in empathy.

Unfortunately, this latest disclosure will probably just deepen people’s pre-existing adoration or hatred of Palin without contributing anything new to our discussions of abortion.
