This kind of thing was bound to happen, and it will again: Alan Colmes wrote a blog post (that has since been removed but the following link is a cached page) entitled “Did Palin take proper prenatal care?”
If you’re unfamiliar with McCain’s running-mate, Sarah Palin and her husband have a child who was born with Down syndrome. The couple knew this was the case before the baby was born. Their son was born this April, but they learned that he would most likely have Down syndrome last December. They’re against abortion, so this was not an option. They didn’t run away from a challenge and they’re glad they had their son.
But Colmes — and others we will come to discover — question A) if the baby’s disorder was her fault, and of course B) if the Palin’s were irresponsible to allow the baby to live.
Well, heaven forbid a child not as perfect as Alan Colmes — goofy hair, mantis body, mutant face, lazy eye and all — be born into the world.
It must be hilariously strange for Palin to have the prenatal care she gave her child questioned by a man whose own mother appears to have taken her pregnant stomach which carried a fetus soon to be named Alan and pounded it with a sledge-hammer while riding a Tilt-a-Whirl, all while smoking Marlboros and swigging cheap vodka.
But Colmes isn’t alone. Here’s another article entitled “Sarah Palin’s questionable judgment.” Isn’t it strange how goofy some “pro-choicers” get when you exercise your choice and they don’t like it?
This is pathetic on so many levels, the least of which being that Down syndrome is cause by an extra chromosome, and really has nothing to do with prenatal care. Liberals often falsely associate Down syndrome with whatever phenomenon cuts off a newborn baby’s oxygen supply for so long that they end up as liberals who don’t know what causes Down syndrome.
Isn’t a pro-abortion liberal questioning a mother’s prenatal care a little like a Nazi concentration camp guard accusing the one person who survived the gas chamber of breathing wrong? That’s how it comes across to me.
Remember, this is from the political party that claims sole proprietorship over caring for those who can’t help themselves. This is from the political party that wants to control the health care of all Americans. No thanks.
By having a child that will require extra care instead of taking the “easy” way out, Sarah Palin has told the world more about herself without saying a word than all the empty liberal rhetoric about “choice” ever uttered.
I believe that the only mothers who didn’t take proper prenatal care — or postnatal care for that matter — are the mothers of these pro-abortion liberals whose life philosophy is to use their own existence as the baseline for what should be considered perfection. If that doesn’t make you laugh, then you’re a liberal.
Update: Colmes attempts to explain himself. “I never mentioned Down syndrome in the post.” Well, he must have been referring to hair color or something. As if the baby was born completely “normal” he still would have been questioning Palin’s prenatal judgment. Funny.
