    Would you have the State insisting that this be made illegal, or that all pregnant women over the age of 40 abort their babies?

    The Left has long held this fascination with Eugenics and aborting babies. Are you a left winger yourself?
    Where did I mention abortion? Get your spin out of it.

    Not for abortion but giving a baby the best chance of a healthy birth.
    Yes it is her right to do smoke and drink to the ride to the maternity floor am just saying it is retarded..................
    There.

    Why don't you stop changing the subject. This is about the use of the word, if you want to argue that Palin's little baby shouldn't be here that's fine. But it'll reflect poorly on you.

    Emanuel wasn't talking about special needs children when he made that comment. He was talking about the absurdity of the situation at the moment; BIG difference. He could have used the words "silly" or "stupid" and NO ONE would have thought he was talking down to people with learning disorders. So, why get all bent out of shape over this? IT'S RETARDED!

    Palin's 15-minutes of fan has lasted way too long. Time this chick went back under that rock in Alaska where she came from. (Hot momma; but no real common sense, IMO.)
    All Palin did was use a play from the Democratic play book, a taste of thier own medicine.

    Is she becoming more democrat now? I wonder if Todd told her to do it?

    It is just fantastic that Palin has decided to become the spokesman for children who are developmently disabled. But odd she has never mentioned anything about the increasing risks of having a child with Down's Syndrome as a woman ages. If she was such an advocate she should be concerned too about giving a kid the best chance possible..

    But this isnt really about the kids, this is about political mainstaging.

    There.
    Where did anyone mention smoking or drinking?

    If a woman is over 40 and pregnant what do you suggest she do?

    "If she was such an advocate she should be concerned too about giving a kid the best chance possible".

    I believe she is doing that.

    What would you have her do?

    I'm quite aware of the odds, son. I know more about this than you ever will.

    I also know that the majority of kids with Down syndrome are born to women in their 20s, not their 40s, by the way.
