Choose well, dears

September 15, 2008

Well, heaven forbid that we reduce the number of abortions:

Sarah and Todd Palin’s decision to complete her recent pregnancy, despite advance notice that their baby Trig had Down syndrome, is hailed by many in the pro-life movement as walking the walk as well as talking the talk.

But a senior Canadian doctor is now expressing concerns that such a prominent public role model as the governor of Alaska and potential vice president of the United States completing a Down syndrome pregnancy may prompt other women to make the same decision against abortion because of that genetic abnormality. And thereby reduce the number of abortions.

So it’s all about a woman’s “right to choose,” as long as she makes the correct choice.

    Not to play “devil’s advocate”, but much the same could be said for a life of crime…

    That the doctor is from Canada, home of socialized medicine, is likely a factor here. Canada has had some well publicized problems with lack of NICU space and an abortion is certainly cheaper than caring for a child with Down’s.

    But it’s OK, because you know, socialists care about us.
