Planned Parenthood says donations are up thanks to Palin


ANCHORAGE, Alaska — Gov. Sarah Palin's run for the White House allowed Planned Parenthood to enjoy a big run on donations.

The group says donations made in protest of Palin's lip service to life brought in more than $1 million.

An e-mail unaffiliated with Planned Parenthood went worldwide on the Web last fall that encouraged donors to send money in to stop Palin as a political candidate.

The letter stated that most people look at issues based on ideology or in many cases ignorance. Sarah Palin has made it clear she has no core ideology and she's quite ignorant on all issues.

Planned Parenthood says they are always grateful for any donations that come in, and hopes to find ways to reduce the number of abortions women receive.

What? Planned Parenthood wants to reduce abortions? Palin, who took office in December 2006, has not given any support on the issue.

When two bills emerged in the Alaska Legislature this year to restrict abortion – one to require parental consent and the other to outlaw dilation-and-extraction procedures, called partial-birth abortion by opponents – Palin said she was ready to sign them into law.

But both efforts were killed by a bipartisan coalition. And when Senator Green (R), who supported the measures, pressed for a special session to deal with abortion, Palin instead chose to do a back door deal with the Democrats for their vote in another special session to secure for a natural gas pipeline project. AGIA, the 500M dollar giveaway to a foreign company TransCanada.

Palin also did not challenge an Alaska Supreme Court ruling that mandated health insurance benefits for same-sex partners. Instead she signed a nonbinding referendum that asked voters their opinion on the issue.

She’s been careful not to squander all her political capital on social conservative issues,” said Allison Mendel, an attorney whose lawsuit led to the insurance ruling.

    I am so glad that you are thanking Sarah Palin for something. When your very own Barney Frank runs for President in 2012, I hope that you are supportive.
