As I said back at the time this information came out, I have a friend who is against abortion. She had 2 childen after 35 and refused to undergo an amnio beause she would accept whoever came out of her. I know everyone's different, but I still am surprised. Now, I dont' know for a fact whether she underwent THAT particular test--I just know she knew she was having a baby with Down Syndrome. If she did undergo that test, there is a chance you could terminate the pregnancy. So why did she do it? It makes no sense to me.
    Aps, the amnio and other tests (OMG, it's been so long that I forgot what those tests are called) are not just about determining whether or not to terminate. As it was explained to me, my OB urged me to have testing done because if they know of an issue, the appropriate drs will be available during/after delivery. There are no guarantees that certain specialists will be on call at 3 am. One of our tests determined a problem, and we were able to meet with a specialist to determine the best medical course of action before our child was born. She showed up to examine him shortly after he was born. If we had been faced with those surprises after a 34 hour labor, I doubt either of us would have made smart decisions. I know for a fact that specialist would not have been there right after birth.

    I felt like you. When presented with the choice of testing, my reaction was, "It doesn't matter because we would never terminate," but I learned that it's also about healing and sometimes life saving.

    I know what it means. I just don't think it's a necessary component in a discussion about political issues. In fact, the whole reaction by the left has been extremely juvenile. Don't you guys claim to be so tolerant and understanding?

    So are we going to rely on citing SNL skits as the basis for this? I am willing to set some parameters on this because I don't hold SNL in the same regard as the MSM in that, well...it's SNL. I'm talking about issues the MSM grabbed and proliferated. To my knowledge I didn't see MSNBC or CBS claiming Palin said she could see Russia from her front porch.

    Yeah, but seriously, do we really want to discuss this point? Seriously, her responses to some of the questions in that interview were less than impressive.

    How many times have we seen here at DP, members claiming that palin stated she said that?


    Including I believe the thread starter. The thread may be archived or expired now, but I recall pointing out what you have numerous times when this argument comes up by your left of center bretheren.



    Fact is, this thread is dumb. It's about as breaking news as the sun rising every morning.

    I don't know and furthermore it's irrelevant. If you are going to participate you don't get the benefit of reframing the argument. That argument is about the media falsifying statements she made or blowing them out of proportion.

    Well by all means get on your research pony and ride. Again, it's irrelevant, but if you think you can find anyplace I've seriously argued Palin was guilty of saying she could see Russia from her porch, please revive the thread in question.


    Fact is, this thread is dumb. It's about as breaking news as the sun rising every morning.
    Yet here we are, in a dumb thread, discussing dumb things.
